Cannons Seafood Grill Wedding Photos | Dana Point Photographer | Kristi + Casey

Somewhere in between shooting 40+ weddings in 2015, doing 40+ family sessions in November and December, and rebuilding my own website from scratch, I realised that I have more than 80 weddings I’ve never blogged, and I’m too ashamed to tell you how many engagement sessions, family sessions, newborn and maternity sessions, and portrait sessions have never seen the light of day. Today, even though wedding season is already in full swing (three weddings in March!), I’m making myself sit down and post at least one photo from every wedding. Granted, some weddings are old and I’ll bury them deep so you hopefully won’t be comparing a 2015 wedding and a 2012 wedding side-by-side, but I will put the dates in so that you can see when they were shot.

This one, though shot in August 2013, happens to be one I’m still madly in love with!

A Cannons Seafood Grill Wedding Photos Story

When he finally had her engagement ring in his hot little hands, he couldn’t wait to ask her. One morning, when they were both supposed to be sleeping in, he paced the living room, waiting for her to wake up. Too impatient to let it happen by itself, Casey woke up his Sleeping Beauty and asked her to be his wife.

Their Crystal Cove engagement photos are still some of my favourites (plus it was featured on a wedding blog), and their Cannons Seafood Grill wedding photos were no different.

Sometimes, we photographers have to stage the bride getting ready photos to look this awesome on a wedding day. Kristi’s bridesmaids just dived in, all of them helping out wherever needed, and it ended up being the perfect shot.

Whilst Kristi and the girls were getting ready, Casey and his guys were just hanging out, anxiously awaiting the wedding.

This gorrrrrrrrgeous bouquet (and all the other amazing florals from Kristi’s wedding) is brought to you by Above the Stem Floral Studio, my absolute favourite florist to work with. I’ve always love their work, but they really outdid themselves for this wedding!

Remember that adorable story about how Casey couldn’t wait to ask Kristi to marry him? Yeah, it happened again during their first look. We got it all set up, carefully instructed Casey to wait until Kristi tapped him on the shoulder, and then turn around.

Casey is adorable, though, and so in love with Kristi. When she was still a few feet away, partially out of nervousness and partially from excitement at seeing his bride for the first time, Casey turned around.

And Kristi smiled. It was all so precious.
