Grand Pacific Palisades Resort Wedding Photography | Mike + Katie

You know that feeling of really wanting a certain bride to be your client? That’s how I felt when I first spoke to Katie. She was so kind, sweet and just very easy going.  She was planning a summer destination wedding in Carlsbad (she and her fiance live in Chicago) and thankfully we sealed-the-deal via Skype!

Katie and Mike met working as teachers at an international school in Malawi, Africa. Mike is from Chicago and she is from California, and their love bloomed all the way across the world while in Africa. A strong, sweet love.

They decided to have a destination wedding at the gorgeous Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel where the local brewery, Karl Strauss Carlsbad catered {yes, there was a lot of beer!}.

Katie + Mike…it was an honor seeing your love flourish on your wedding day and to meet all of the 130+ loved ones around you. You’re two of the nicest clients and you are perfect for each other! I wish you nothing but the best.

And, of course, a special shout out to my 2nd photographer, Leif Brandt! You rocked it as usual Leif.
