Golf Club Country Club Wedding | Laura Hernandez Photography

The weather report called for rain. As we drove to the venue, it was raining harder than we had seen in years, but we were prepared. We had bought theses adorable clear umbrellas and had poses ready to use them. We were looking for every overhang and awning at the resort. We were optimistic though, the weather man said by two o’clock, the time the ceremony would end, the rain should clear. We walked into the room of a very nervous bride, but we reassured her the day, what ever the weather, would be perfect. Umbrellas in hand, we headed to the Carmel Mission. Doing everything we could to keep Maira dry, the ceremony started without a hitch, and boy was she stunning!

Inside the mission was a bit dark. The windows were stain glass so it was deceiving of the weather outside. The rush of excitement as they sealed their vows with a kiss, the chuck back doors swung open to let the glorious sun beam come in. Hallelujah! The light radiated all the way to Maira and Jose and their smiles illuminated the room. We covered the mission grounds capturing the love between these two and then headed off to the celebration at Quail Lodge. So enough chitter chatter… let’s move on to the images! We felt so honored to be a part of this day! Celebrating alongside these two families was just an awesome experience and we loved every minute of it!! Congratulation Jose and Maira!!!

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge Engagement Session | Laura Hernandez Photography

We always love when couples have a spot in mind for their engagement session that is meaningful and personal to them. During our first meeting with Cynthia and Lee, they described their dream wedding and how they were getting married in San Francisco where Lee had spent a lot of is young life. You could see the sparkle in Cynthia’s eyes when she shared her heart and love for Lee, we knew San Francisco was the perfect place.

Cynthia and Lee wanted to be surrounded by the architecture that only San Francisco portrays. We started at the breathtaking Palace of Fine Arts. The lake and pillars went on for miles. Their love was explosive when they imaged in only a few short months they would wed in the marvelous city. From there we headed to where the ocean kissed the Golden Gate Bridge right at sunset. I’m not one to be left speechless, but this literately took my breath away.

Cynthia and Lee, thank you for allowing us to capture this very special time in your lives. We are so excited for your wedding this year! For now, we will share a few of our favorites from our time together.
