Find me on
Last year, I met Mallory and Damian at their Balboa Park engagement session. The next time I would see them was at their Estancia La Jolla wedding this fall. I can hardly express how much of a delight they both are. Positive, bubbly, always grateful, and inspiringly kind, Mallory and Damian set the bar very high for dream clients.
First Look and Portraits
After traveling to Estancia La Jolla, I set up the first look for this sweet couple. The excitement they had for the first look perfectly shows how exuberant these two always are. I couldn’t help but smile behind the camera during these joyful moments.
With a small bridal party (which I love!), Mallory and Damian were fully able to spend quality time with each bridesmaid and groomsman. Everyone was so wonderful to work with during the photos, including the cutest ring bearer!
Estancia La Jolla Wedding Ceremony
Their ceremony took place on the Olive Lawn and had a dreamy, luxe organic style. Don’t you just adore those Louis chairs? And those ferns!? The textures of the chairs, ferns, and circular arch perfectly complemented the lush garden setting. I am utterly in love with the design! Plus, the ceremony itself couldn’t have been more adorable. Mallory and Damian were all smiles and laughs.
Estancia La Jolla Wedding Reception
For their reception, which took place inside the Grande room, lush greenery covered the chandeliers and soft linens on each table created a cozy environment. Warmth from candles and uplights made the space feel so welcoming for guests. Each table represented a marriage anniversary milestone, such as gold, paper, and coral. Sentimentality wove throughout the room, including the dessert table. Mallory had her favorite cake, in addition to a large local cake, in San Francisco carried all the way down for her wedding. How fun!
Thank you to Mallory and Damian for having me capture their beautiful day. I adore you two.
