San Diego Engagement Photographer // Kelly + Matthew

The power of Craigslist is… well, very powerful.  It was Craigslist (and kismet?) which, several years ago, facilitated me to sign up for a book group.  It met monthly, the reading list was intriguing, and it seemed like a good way to meet new people with something intelligent to say.  The Craigslist gods were smiling upon me again when they also led Kelly to the same book group.  In time, a core few of us not only expanded the number of books on our shelves, but also became good friends.

Since those book group days, Kelly has left the book group, lived abroad, moved home, applied for schools, and moved back to San Diego.  During all that transition, two things remained constant: Her ability to keep in touch with her friends (hello Facebook!) and her love for Matthew.  I hadn’t met Matthew before he proposed, but I heard his name constantly woven into Kelly’s stories about her everyday life.  And when I met him, and saw the two of them together, I understood why he is an integral part of her… their togetherness is so easy and fluid, almost as if it were simply meant to be.

When they began planning their wedding, Matthew + Kelly were insistent on one thing – that everyone invited to the wedding be their friends… including “vendors.”  So when Kelly called and asked if I would be interested in meeting with them about their wedding photography, I was thrilled to be invited to participate in an event as warm and intimate as theirs will be.

We started the session with a beer at True North, spent the afternoon in Golden Hill (yes, I was in heaven!) and finished at the Spruce Street Bridge.  In the midst of all this, there were a smattering of polaroids  to commemorate the event.  It was indeed magical.

Thank you Matthew + Kelly, for allowing me to share a beautiful afternoon with you in one of my favorite neighborhoods.  Thank you for your enthusiasm, your kindnesses, and allowing me to shoot well after dark.  I can’t wait for your wedding in July nor can I wait to work with this guy:)

claire - lovely :)
