Gorgeous Wedding at Bungalows Lydia in San Pancho, Mexico {Brianna + Lee}

It’s rare for me to be a guest at a wedding. I am either photographing them or a bridesmaid! I was so excited to head down to San Pancho, Mexico to celebrate my dear friend’s wedding. I couldn’t help but take a few photos after the ceremony (on the beach of Bungalows Lydia) along side their hired, awesome wedding photographer!  I have been dear friends with the bride for 23 years and to be one of her 45 guests meant the world to me. I love these 2 lovebirds to pieces and cried like a baby during their heartfelt, powerful ceremony! <3

Here’s a little sneak peak action from my amazing session with Steph and Jeff! The love they have for each other was so inspiring. The day was PERFECT.  I could have shot them for days. I feel so fortunate they found me on YELP!

 We shot at Temescal Park in Pacific Palisades and then journeyed up to Malibu at the picturesque Beach of Pt Dume.
