Just like a Dream | Photo of the Week

By, November 24, 2017

Assuming the wedding day timeline allows, it’s nice to set aside time for sunset photos! Whether your wedding is in the mountains, the city, or the coast (as below), the quality of light can be very nice as the sun goes down. Here’s an epic sunset shot from Amanda and Kyle’s big day, and our Photo of the Week.Candid photo of a wedding couple at sunset

Alaina and Stephen recently held their wedding at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay. We loved Alaina and Stephen’s fun personalities, and had a blast scouting locations that complemented their playful spirits. We hope you enjoy our selection of images from their special day!
