When I was young, I competed for a handful of years in acrobatic gymnastics. When I was a sophomore in high school, I spent a year in Riverside, California at a new gym and it was there, I met one of the stars of the sport- Clare Brunson. She was part of the US team and ranked internationally! She was mesmerizing to watch perform. I didn’t know Clare well, but she and I reconnected through social media a few years back and when she reached out to me about photographing her wedding, I was both thrilled and honored.
Clare was an absolutely gorgeous bride! I met Devon on the day of the wedding and it goes without saying, he is quite dashing. Like Clare, he is kind, charismatic and has a great sense of humor!
I love the way these two look at one another and the connection they clearly share. They married on the coast of California at the Monterey Plaza Hotel. With the sea otters jumping in the ocean behind them, Clare + Devon made promises to one another in front of their family and friends. Following their ceremony they celebrated with their friends and family (including the most epic first dance we’ve ever seen) It was an absolute pleasure to photograph these to marry and I’m excited to share some of the highlights from their day!
