Monica + Tyler - sneak peek {San Diego, CA Photographer}

This gorgeous and adorable gal happens to be my little sister...  I still can't believe she's MARRIED, but she couldn't have chosen a more perfect and wonderful guy.  I'm so grateful for how happy they both make each other!!  I wish them the best of luck as they begin their adventure together!!

We all went to San Diego where they both live and where the wedding was.  Tyler and Monica chose to do a First Look, which in my opinion, is the smartest thing a couple can do to make their wedding day more enjoyable and less stressful!  The night before the big day, we went out to Balboa Park (and a couple other locations) for a fun and relaxing evening of picture taking.  It was so special to be able to watch Tyler see Monica in her dress for the first time!  They're so adorable... did I already mention that?

Everything was beautiful and the weather was perfect!  I loved meeting and getting to know Tyler's family - they fit right in with our wild and crazy bunch!  It was a little crazy being the photographer and a bridesmaid (yes I'm actually IN some of these pictures, thanks to my amazing Aunt Cynthia!)  The reception was tons of fun - everyone had a great time.  Nothing is better than family!!  Tyler and Monica rode off into the night on their bikes at the end of the party and are doing great!  Enjoy this walk through their big day...

One of my sisters is on a church mission, so she was unable to attend the wedding (although, she did in spirit - she wore her own bridesmaid outfit that day too!!)  We took this picture for her - all the girls, oldest to youngest (minus our "little" brother)...  We missed her so much!!  {FYI: It's rare to see a picture of me on here, so for those of you who don't know what I look like, I'm the oldest, the one on the far left.}
