Michelle and Stefan (Wedding Photography) @ Santa Catalina High School (Monterey) / Anton & Michel, Carmel,California

About This Post

Whenever I shoot a wedding at Santa Catalina High School in Monterey, the couple almost always has an intimate connection to the location – either they went to the school or the church (or both). With turn-of-the-century Spanish mission-style architecture, quaint gardens, colorful murals and intimate niches spread throughout, it’s a great venue for post-ceremony bridal portraits. Because it’s an old location, many of the interior locations (bridal suite, church) are pretty dark, but a little preparation on my part (fast lenses / off-camera lighting gear) takes care of these obstacles with nary a hiccup.

Michelle and Stefan’s full mass ceremony gave me plenty of photo ops, and they included enough time in the itinerary to make a pit-stop at Stewart’s Cove Beach in Carmel for some nice bridal portraits before heading to Stefan’s dad’s restaurant (Anton & & Michel) for the reception. There were so many smiles at the cocktail hour, and laughter all-around. I found myself finding tons of great subjects to candidly photograph with zero effort – this crowd was relaxed and happy for this couple.

Lots of great detail at this wedding – the floral arrangements were gorgeous, and check out the bi-plane groom’s cake! So great. Below are some of my favorite photos – enjoy!
