InterContinental The Clement Monterey Wedding – Denise and Manuel

I met Denise in the industry as my rep at HereComesTheGuide – she is one of the friendliest most personable reps I’ve met – someone you just wanna go hang out and have a drink with (and we did just that at the engagement session!) It’s always an honor for someone in the industry to ask you to shoot their wedding, and even better when you love hanging out with them and their fiancé. It was pretty obvious from the start that Manuel and Denise would be a GREAT fit for me – we were obnoxious and laughing the whole time.

Denise chose a mini-adventure destination wedding to The Clement Monterey, an InterContinental hotel on the water in Monterey. I think Monterey and Carmel probably have the world’s BEST weather for photographing weddings!

Manuel and Denise are super playful – seeing them cheer for a passerby totally cracked me up! Monterey wedding cheer

Holding hands is something we barely notice we do, but it’s such a personal touch – to me it’s like a fingerprint for each couple. Clement Monterey wedding


Denise and Manuel’s son was an integral part of their ceremony, and seeing Manuel with Thiago’s teddy bear at the ready was adorable. Clement teddy bear


While not a pusher of “first looks” – this hallway at The Clement Monterey was definitely the right place to setup Denise and Manuel’s. First Look Clement

I’m a total shoe whore – if I was a girl I’d own EVERY heel known to man! Loved the detail on Denise’s shoes. Wedding shoes Clement
