Shannon and Brad

From the bride's surprise message on the Lusty Lady marquee, to the beer and chocolate that were artfully woven into the touching ceremony, to the cigar smoking at the end of the night...this was one fun wedding to shoot.
In addition, Shannon and Brad were GREAT to work with, which was especially nice because we didn't meet in person until their wedding day.
Also, kudos to Annemarie Juhlian for her great officiating, and to the Golden Gardens Bathhouse, which is always a sweet ceremony location.

Congrats to the fabulous Shannon and Brad!!

The pictures are perfect. Your ability to capture the fleeting moments and the expressions we made without even realizing it is amazing.

We especially like the ones on the beach and the Japanese mob.

We cannot wait to see what other pictures you captured of the day.

Thank you for doing such a beautiful job of documenting us and our offbeat day. We know it wasn't traditional by any stretch of the imagination. And thank you for rolling with the punches and being up for anything.

Clare - It was such a treat to work with you at Brad and Shannon's wedding in October. I loved officiating their ceremony and just knowing you were "there" in the background capturing this wonderful couple, made the experience even more wonderful. These photos are truly treasures!

Those are absolutely beautiful. Shannon, I don't know how you're going to choose which ones to frame.

Personally, I love the one outside the Lusty Lady & the beach shots.

Feel free to crop out me & my closed eyes in the shot of the vows! :-)

Absolutely gorgeous photos Clare! Golden Gardens Bathouse is one of my favorite venues! I love the shots of the couple on the beach with the story clouds behind them!
