Mendocino California Beach Wedding: Claudia + Andrew
This St. Louis Wedding Photographer was ecstatic to have the opportunity to photograph Claudia and Andrew’s California wedding! Everything about this day and this place was picture perfect. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they exchanged vows and started their new life together on a cliff over looking the ocean. This couple is really special to me, since I have known them since I photographed Claudia’s sisters wedding in 2015! It was so wonderful for me to see her beach wedding turn out just they way she wanted it! She wanted a relaxed feel, filled with love, romantic gestures, and lots of light and color. But above all Claudia and Andrew were excited to include their bull dog Lola in there ceremony as their “flower dog!” Lola had her own flower crown and tutu made out of Claudia’s wedding dress. Their puppy is like family to them, so including her in the wedding was a must! While I was in love with Lola’s awesome ensemble, I was equally in love with Claudia and her bridesmaid’s styling! The bridesmaids wore varies shades of forget green and emerald green dresses and I LOVED it! Matched with the pink, purple and champagne flowerals, it was dreamy!
Photographically….I was so thrilled with how their bride and groom portraits turned out! Though it’s hard to take a bad picture on a sunny day on the beach in Mendocino CA! We had beautiful light, which helped us capture some truly wonderful natural light images! When I look at these photographs they just make me smile. 🙂 The warm lighting and delicate romantic posing fit this couple and their St connection with each other so well. I was honored to be a part of their wedding.
