Knowing Carly and Alex are true adventurers, willing to take risks - in forms of time, comfort, or even weather - to get what they wanted on their wedding day, I asked Carly, "If time were not an issue, where would you dream of having your portraits taken?" Without hesitation she said, Sunset Cliffs. This long stretch of cliffs overseeing the Pacific Ocean in San Diego is one of Carly and Alex's favorite places, where we took their engagement photos, and what Carly envisioned as the perfect backdrop.
I said, "Let's make it happen" and with a few tweaks to the schedule, Carly got her wish to be held by the man of her dreams, standing on the cliffs she loves, with the perfect amount of wind blowing through her hair on her wedding day.
Returning to an epic reception at Tom Ham's Lighthouse, Carly and Alex's tight bonds with friends and family was truly evident as speech after speech resulted in laughs and cheering and some tears, only for the party to get truly started with traditional Greek dance moves - including a flip! - by Alex!
Carly and Alex, I smile as I type this because I know I can always count on you both to be fun and willing to push the envelope. Alex, I loved how you had a list of very serious questions for me over our first coffee - it meant how serious and involved you were in wedding planning - and I admired that! Carly, my dearest Carly! You energy is infectious and how you speak to people, myself included, is so warm and caring. Thank you both for allowing me to capture your special day! xoxo, Evelyn
