It was a perfect blissful and sunny day at the Mission San Luis Obispo De Tolosa for Nolan and Meaghan’s wedding. Once again I found myself looking around at such a beautiful day, beautiful scenery and great couple – thinking, “how blessed am I to be a wedding photographer in San Luis Obispo!” The Mission is one of San Luis Obispo’s classic landmark wedding venues. Established in 1772 and built in 1793 the Mission has quite a bit of history too it and serves as a center point for downtown San Luis Obispo.
The wedding preparation and details shots got started at a beautiful condo in Avila Beach.
Meaghan and her father share a moment! I love it!
I know I am stating the obvious, but Meaghan has quite the beautiful smile!
The downtown Mission Creek area offers some great shooting locations!

The reception was held at the Avila Bay Golf Resort.
There were plenty of very wonderful and emotional moments during the toasts. Ok, I’ll admit it, I had to wipe a tear or two from my eyes and laughed a number of times as I listened while I took photographs. It’s one of the wonderful things about my profession, serving as a wedding photographer: I don’t detach myself from all the special moments of the day like a news reporter. I allow myself to emotionally participate, to take in and enjoy the special moments and blessings of the day. Additionally, since I am present and involved with the couple and family through out the day I do my best to subtly inject any encouragement and joy where I can. The reality is that your wedding photographer will be part of your wedding day experience – in the same way that at a restaurant your waiter or waiter is part of your dinning experience. Hopefully they don’t become too much of your dinning experience, but a friendly smile, attitude of service and attention to detail certainly can help you enjoy your dinner! My goal is not only to take great wedding photographs for you, but also to help you enjoy your wedding day where I can!
Where ever there are children…there are interesting photographs to be taken!
Easy now…make sure you breathe in between chugs!
Nolan and Meaghan thanks so much for all the great memories of your wedding and thanks for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. May your heart continue to be set aflame for each other through out your days!
