Kimi and Andy's wedding took place at the beautiful Desconso Beach Club on Catalina Island. Its only an hour from the California coast but it feels like it's worlds away. We got to travel all around the island, shooting at the Chimes Tower, the Catalina Casino, and the secluded Desconso beach. The day was filled with ocean air and beachy breezes and a whole lotta partying. There were hula-hoops, giant bubbles, cakes being cut with swords, and some serious glow-stick action. It was a magical night and we can't wait to visit Catalina again.
The day we spent with Kelly and Kyle on Catalina Island goes down in the books as one of the most epic engagement sessions we've ever done. Catalina is about an hour by boat from Los Angeles but feels like a world away. Kyle grew up on the island and Kelly has family from there as well...crazy coincidence since there's only about four thousand people on the island. Clearly they were meant to find each other.
Kyle's parents picked us up in their awesome 1960s Volkswagon bus and drove us all over the island on roads that are only accessible to locals. When we got to the other side of the island, we watched a tall ship (or a pirate ship according to Emily) anchor as the last bit of sunlight streamed through the low clouds and made dazzling patterns on the Pacific. Magic.
We can't wait to get our film back from this shoot and will probably be sharing more photos once we do. Also soon to come: Kelly and Kyle's intimate wedding on a Malibu mountaintop!
