Amanda and AJ have been dreaming about having Radiant Photography at their wedding before Radiant Photography even existed.
At least that’s what it seems like anyways! Amanda is a pretty snazzy photographer herself and has been a fan of ours for awhile. We were in contact a bunch before she even got engaged- just talking photography and things like that- so when AJ popped the question to her, we heard about it right away!
Amanda sent me an email saying she was engaged and that even though none of the details about her wedding were worked out yet, the one thing she knew was that she was going to find a way to have Radiant there!
Well she worked her magic and we are now officially on the docket and have loved hearing all the details of her wedding as they’ve been coming to fruition! It’s been so fun to be along for the process from pre-engagement to almost married!
As the time neared for Amanda and AJ’s engagement session on Coronado Island in San Diego, California, the anticipation was building! Every once in awhile I’d get random emails or posts on Radiant’s Facebook wall from Amanda saying that she was counting down the days to her session… as were we!
Not only did we get to work with people who really love what we do, but we were getting to do it on freaking Coronado Island!! It doesn’t get much better than that for us!
(This exact street corner is the spot that inspired this entire session. Amanda took a photo of this corner years ago and has been in love with it ever since!)
Amanda’s family had heard all about us at this point and they were eager to get in on this whole “trip to Coronado” thing so her parents came along for the ride!
And let me tell you, it was quite a ride!! We had the best time that day! We went to lunch at one of my favorite places that I (Breanna) was so excited to revisit, and then we headed out for our shoot! Now do you see what I’m talking about when I say that Coronado is awesome?!
Just in case you still don’t believe in the amazingness factor of Coronado, here’s a few more to convince you!
It’s such a fun place to be too… especially if you’re with people as cool as we were with!
Scottie and I had a 2 hour drive or so home to make that night, but we had so much fun with everyone that we couldn’t resist going out to eat with them again after the session! We sat around for hours with them listening to family stories and learning about the people we were going to be hanging out with on one of the most important days of their lives.
(See all the plant stuff they are standing on? That spells out the word “Coronado” that you can only see from the air… or in this screen shot from Google Maps below).
Thank you guys so so so much for such a wonderful day and for being the exact kind of client that we absolutely love working with!
Seriously, you have no idea how much it means to us to know how excited you are about having us at your wedding.
Seeing your excitement and getting to work with people as cool as you, reminds us once again of why we love our job.
