JUSTIN + EMILY, MARRIED | CALIFORNIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

We photographed Emily + Justin’s engagement session up at Manoa Falls when they flew out here after getting engaged last year. Thats when they became some of our favorite people. I don’t really remember how they asked us to fly all the way to California to photograph their wedding but all I knew was that we wouldn’t miss it for the world.

We started the day at Emily’s sisters house then went to Justin’s parents house to photograph him getting ready before heading over to Oak Canyon for their ceremony. We snuck in some time before the ceremony for them to do a first look which is always our favorite part of the day. Justin brought a letter he wrote and read it to Emily which was the sweetest thing ever. Once all the nerves were gone- it was time to get married. Their ceremony was beautiful and we are always so excited to see a couple we love become husband + wife! They had their reception back at Justin’s parents’ house. Literally- tacos, a cigar bar, a bad ass dj, a super rad photo booth and a TON of alcohol. We photographed every single moment as it was. We were so sad to leave because Justin and Emily made us feel like part of their family which always means so much to us.

Literally tearing up because I remember exactly how this moment felt

What better way to end this blog than with a terrible quality iPhone video of the last song of the night. Everyone was on the dance floor and we’ve never felt more like family. I literally asked them to adopt me that night haha!!!!
