It was an absolute great time to be the wedding photographer for Jose and Brenda at The Carmel Mission Basilica, Monterey, California. Jose and Brenda are just such down to earth, humble and kind people! They were really a lot of fun and they really know how to throw a party/reception – to say the least! The Carmel Mission Basilica is a beautiful place and has so many neat features inside and out. Inside the Basilica the ceilings and front altar area are just – WOW! The outside of the building has such a beautiful architecture that takes you back to 1771. The texture of the exterior is amazing and the courtyard, flower beds and statues grab your interest.
To start things off though we have to go back to Jose and Brenda’s engagement session which we did in San Luis Obispo. I wish I could share my top 30 favs, but this one will have to do. It’s my favorite and I think it just captures something timeless as well as the joy that Jose and Brenda have together as a couple. It makes me smile ever time I see it.
Now onto Jose and Brenda’s fabulous wedding at the Carmel Mission Basilica in Monterey, California.
It makes for great pictures when everyone is loose, trying to have a good time and acting silly.
What a wedding venue!! Just amazing!
Beautiful children, acting like beautiful children!
Jose and Brenda did a little song and dance for the audience where Jose assumed the role of home maker, cleaner, house husband etc. and Brenda took the role of demanding wife. It was quite comical and fun. I had never seen this particular comedy at any of the weddings I have had the honor of photographing. As a wedding photographer it was just “gravy”!
Cowboy hat flung to the side, sad face resting on his arms and two little pretend bottles laying on their sides…this little guy is set to be a star in a country song! Whatever the case I’ll be glad to have him star in my wedding photography anytime. What a character!
As fun as these two shots (and many more) were…I had to really hold my breath every time Jose was launched into the air! These are memories for Jose and Brenda that they will have forever!
Monterey is such a beautiful area to get married in. It’s a lot of fun to be a Monterey Wedding Photographer as well.
Jose and Brenda it has been great serving you. To you and all your family – all the best and may your lives be full of joy and blessings. Congratulations!! Stay in touch please!
