This sweet and amazing couple came to me via a previous bride I had photographed the year before. We hit it off immediately and I heard of their incredible engagement story on the top of the Swiss Alps. Yes. Amazing! He’s from Wisconsin, she’s from San Diego. They met at University of Wisconsin where they both attended college.
I loved meeting with them and after talking wedding details our conversation led to what was left… finding a pastor. Turns out they were in luck because my husband is a pastor! (a really awesome one, too) I told them about our church, Rise City, and a little about my husband. After our meeting, our paths crossed again as they attended Rise City, became apart of our small group, and really quickly became cherished friends!
Even in the short time I’ve known them I know they are going to have an extraordinary marriage! Both are committed to serving and lifting the other up.
They are humble, generous, fun, adventurous and beautiful. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to photograph them. It was so hard choosing my favorites, but here is just a sampling of their glorious day.
Oh, and I can’t forget to mention my incredible second shooter, Joelle, of Joey Photo! You can check out her gorgeous work here! She’s pretty amazing.
Taryn was soooo excited for her wedding day. She was pretty pumped to finally arrive and see how all her planning came together!
These images of the guys were taken by my fabulous second shooter, Joelle!
You can tell his mama came prepared! I love this.
Taryn and her dad have the sweetest relationship – one I hope my hubby has with our girls one day. Ed has three daughters, and this will be his third wedding in the last year and half! I can’t even imagine! This will be his last wedding. His last daughter to give away. He was crazy about them and it was so cool to watch him and Taryn throughout the day. I love it.
A beautiful venue for a wedding, the SantaLuz Club in San Diego.
Remember the little guy playing with the cars 🙂
After the ceremony we headed out for some quick photos throughout the property. We didn’t have much time but were able to snag some with the gorgeous architecture and beautiful golden light on the hillside
Let the reception begin!
That tie is one Taryn made for her daddy when she was little. How amazing that he kept it all these years?!! And that he’d bust it out at the reception! Fun.
Taryn was so sad when it was over! The sparkler exit was a grand finale after dancing all night long. The night was incredible and as you can tell, people truly celebrated these two!
Taryn and Colin. You two are amazing. Thank you for allowing me into your life to document the beginning of your lifetime together. I hope you love your images and I just know you two are in for an awesome adventure as killer team! Together, you guys will move mountains. Love you both.
