Casual Backyard Wedding by the Beach // Lara + Jesse

Lara and Jesse's San Clemente wedding was the perfect combination of fun, relaxation, and love. What more can you ask for in a wedding day? Oh wait, I know, cute details! The icing on the wedding cake. A few of my favorites had to be the succulent terrariums, adorable L+J pins, and sunglasses for the guests to wear. All of these elements were the perfect compliment to their beachy backdrop and casual vibe. I loved second shooting this wedding with Kaysha. As always her couples know how to put on a great party. Here are a few of my favorites from Lara and Jesse's big day...


This photo (below) cracks me up every time I see it. Kaysha was standing behind the couple when these birds flew over, and she yelled for me "get the shot with the birds!" while she ducked behind the couple. Needless to say I got the shot....with the birds in focus, not the couple. FAIL. Even so, I kind of like the way it turned out. Reminds me of a scene from The Birds. End of story.

How stinkin' cute is this cake?

Thanks again Kaysha for letting me second shoot Lara and Jesse's wedding with you! For a list of the awesome vendors involved with their day, check out Kaysha's blog post.

Happy Tuesday!!!
