When Renee and David asked us to photograph them on a sailboat, we knew we would get along swell. We were so happy to come back to LA to photograph their Santa Monica wedding. The venue was right on the beach next to the boardwalk. It was a golden day that ended with dancing, a hula hoop dancer, and live music streaming through the open windows late into the night. Then these two adventurous souls took off to Thailand to scuba dive throughout their honeymoon!
