Everything you need to know from the minute you get engaged to after you say I do!



Hari & Alyssa’s Estancia La Jolla wedding was on the most gorgeous fall day in November. These two always dreamt of their wedding encompassing a bohemian meets Tulum vibe. Traveling to Tulum a couple years ago they wanted to incorporate their trip of a lifetime into the best day of their lives. Trying to reminisce on their favorite trip they wanted to incorporate a feel easy vibe and make their day feel like their vacation.  I am so thankful that Brogen Jessup brought me on as her second photographer and that I was able to capture this beautiful day! 

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa could not have been more perfect for these two. This venue is nestled in the heart of Torrey Pines and has a beautiful Spanish-style architecture throughout. The olive trees, winding pathways, and water fountains set an enchanting stage for their romantic outdoor wedding.

Their wedding was filled with natural neutral hues that were paired with bold colors. I mean how gorgeous is this ceremony site! The Dainty Lion killed it on all the florals!

One of my favorite locations to shoot at Estancia La Jolla was this beautiful desert pathway. Besides it being a great spot it was also one of my favorite moments with these two. In this moment they were able to be themselves. They didn’t have distractions from their guests, friends, family, or wedding formalities. It was just them. They were able to laugh, kiss, and stare into each other’s eyes knowing that they can finally call each other husband and wife.

Hari & Alyssa also had a kick ass reception!  As they headed to the party Alyssa changed into a Sari to celebrate Hari’s Indian culture. These two laughed, cried, and squeezed each other’s hands all night. There wasn’t a moment when they were distracted and they relished every moment of their day.
