Melissa and Jamison, Beach Side Wedding in San Clemente California

Eden Strader Photography

"Eden was a dream to work with! (For our wedding) I was looking for the right combination of glamour and emotion, which I believe she captures perfectly. She was so great to work with and .. she captured the day beautifully. We'll be able to continue to relive our best day ever thanks to Eden."

I first met Melissa and Jamison  last summer for their engagements in San Francisco and I've been counting down to their gorgeous SoCal Wedding ever since! Jamison began the day getting ready surrounded by his groomsmen- He gifted them personalized leather totes and they rang in the day with scotch completed with Star Wars glasses. Melissa and her girls got ready just a few doors down, then she shared a first look with her father before heading to the beach for their first look as a couple.

The Sand Dunes at San Clemente beach were the perfect backdrop for a romantic first look and formal portraits. After which, Melissa and Jamison were wed at sunset overlooking the gorgeous San Clemente Beach. We headed down to the water for a few more bridals together as the sun finally fell. Their party following with their friends and family was one of the most fun I've ever seen! Such a party to celebrate these two. 

M + J have been so fun to work with, it was amazing capturing so many emotional moments for them on their big day! Hope you enjoy their images as much as I do. xx
