San Clemente Wedding Photography - Megan and Dom

watching megan meet dom, watching dom court megan, watching the whole thing go down, was something special. i have known both megan & dom for a few years now, and couldn't be more privileged to have been witness to such a special day.

it's always an honor to be invited as the wedding photographer for a couple, but when they are friends, it tastes just a bit sweeter. and, as if the day couldn't look to be any better, upon arriving at the laguna cliffs marriott, where the beautiful megan was preparing for her wedding day, carlie & i were greeted with a gift for lincoln.

have i told you how much i love presents!!

anyways, back to their wedding...

megan & dom decided to do their first look near a quaint & secluded cove in laguna beach, before we made our way over to the ole hanson beach club in san clemente for the main event. when we arrived, every detail was in order, as per the crafty eye of darcie with joyful weddings & events and the flowers provided by megan's garden. and no, megan was NOT pulling flowers on the eve of her wedding, but her mother does happen to own the boutique flower and event planning studio that set the backdrop for the day.

and because every day, especially every wedding day, is better with cupcakes, megan & dom dropped some love for their guests with custom cupcakes by frosted cupcakery in long beach.

so, without further adieu, here they are... megan & dom's wedding photos.


dom & the boys taking it back to his days with throwdown of touring the world and slapping the bass, which lead straight into his current career as a graphic designer.
thanks again to darcie & megan's garden for all the FABULOUS details :)

  1. Gorgeous. The First look photo is one of my fav's!

  2. You guys blow me away every time. Your photography is special. You know, I'm reading all these books and blogs where people say that being a wedding photographer is less about the photographs than it is about the person taking them. Well you guys have clearly formed your own niche but man can you take some incredible pictures as well. Your images are crisp and bright and breath taking. You are without a doubt my favorite blog to follow and I hope to some day take as amazing photos as you do.

  3. sigh... so beautiful!! I love the last pic!!! So romantic and cool!!! Love it all!! :D

  4. I LOVE the black and whites! So crisp and true to your editorial style!

  8. that lost shot says it all. fun, happiness, team work and beauty. you two rock!!!! these are gorgeous.

  9. I don't normally read photography blogs, but you guys were the photographers for a wedding I did a few weeks ago, and now I'm hooked on your blog! All of your images are so perfect and sweet and never cliche. You have me swooning all over the place! I'm a definite fan :)

  10. I love these photographs. How fun....love the tennis shoes!!

  11. I have to say, the one with the guys jumpin' all over the place is a hit for me. Even with the ones in front flailing their arms everywhere, you still got the faces (or parts of them) of the guys in back. Just genius.

  12. the Ryan's never fail to impress. These are awesome you guys.
