There are few things we can count on, but one of them is that when a bride and groom place a ton of trust and priority in us to create something special for them, we are definitely going to deliver.  Ryan and Sam are two incredible people.  Ryan, a sailor in the US Navy, had just come back from deployment, and proposed to Sam right off of his ship.  These two decided on an old hollywood theme for their wedding.  Sam put an exclamation point on the theme with one of the most beautiful gowns we have photographed this year (We have photographed A TON of beautiful gowns this year).  She finished off her look with a stunning headpiece that screamed prohibition era hollywood.  

Ryan also brought his classic Mercedes Benz to the scene.  I have a confession, I am a sucker for Mercedes Benz cars, and also anything that is vintage.  Shooting both things together was a great experience. 

At sunset, we ventured out via Uber to the cliffs of La Jolla to take some amazing shots of our bride and groom.  We told Sam we were going to be extra careful to keep her dress clean, but she was adamant about getting the shot, so we obliged and the results were stunning

Huge congrats to you Ryan and Sam, may your love be filled with life and your life be filled with love :-)
