Heather + Tim (Monterey Wedding Photography) @ Del Monte Beach House

I met Tim and Heather last year for their awesome Pescadero Beach engagement session – it was great practice for trying out poses and gave me a chance to get to know this couple before their big day. They fit together like a two-piece puzzle, and complement each other perfectly in their own unique ways. Before we knew it, their wedding day had arrived, and I met Heather at the Portola Hotel and Spa where her and the girls were getting ready. Heather “Bird” O’Connell, the makeup and hair artist was a complete riot and had everyone giggling (except me, I don’t giggle, I chuckle. Ahem.). One of my favorite pics is of Heather standing on a chair to touch up the bride’s makeup.  I had a lot of fun hanging with everyone and capturing the sometimes nervous, sometimes silly moments. Within an hour we all felt like old buddies which is a great way to go into your wedding day!

The ceremony started a couple hours late as a fire on highway 101 prevented a few people from arriving on time – but the bar was open and spirits were high (pun intended), and it gave me a chance to spend some time getting guest candids and capturing all the important details of the wonderful hawaiian decorations at the Del Monte Beach House in Monterey. Connie Moore did a beautiful job with all the flower arrangements and Cakes by Veronica did an exquisite job on the tastefully simple cake. The weather was really overcast, but that didn’t stop us from taking some pretty epic bride and groom formal photos. Inside, the DJ/Officiant/Party Director-Extraordinaire rocked the house and got everyone dancing. He was great to work with, always giving me a heads’ up before the major events.

    Heather - Chris, I couldn’t think of a better way to capture the day than your work. My husband and I are incredibly happy with our photos – we will enjoy them for years to come! Everyone loved seeing your work our engagement session, and complemented us on how fun and easy to work with you were at the wedding. Thanks so much for capturing our day!!
