Hannah and Benjamin | Estancia La Jolla Wedding

Capturing weddings packed with moments of fun, love, and laughter is our passion! We love being a part of such an important event and helping our couples, and their families, remember this wonderful day by documenting authentic moments as they unfold. From happy tears and champagne corks popping to heartfelt vows, we photograph these unforgettable memories so that our couples can reminisce about all the good times they had on their wedding day. Hannah and Benjamin’s Estancia La Jolla wedding was super magical and dreamy. Surrounded by their loved ones, and in an equally stunning location, photographing their wedding and all those sweet in-between moments really made our day! 

Hannah and Benjamin’s Estancia La Jolla Wedding 

Our promise is “Bright, vibrant imagery with true-to-life color that tells our client’s unique love stories.” And we kept that promise with Hannah and Benjamin’s wedding at Estancia La Jolla. Their wedding venue was absolutely gorgeous and the couple radiated love and joy throughout their wedding. 

We began capturing Benjamin and Hannah’s wedding day story by taking pictures of their getting ready moments. The excitement on Hannah’s face was such a joy to capture! She posed with her bridesmaids for some bridal party pictures, and the girls were beaming with happiness as they all got ready to celebrate. Hannah’s mom was also there to make sure that everything was perfect and on schedule, helping her daughter with all the final touches on her dress. It was such a sweet moment!

Hannah didn’t have one but three first looks! She did a first look with her bridesmaids and a second first look with her father. But the icing on the cake was undoubtedly Benjamin’s reaction when he saw his lovely bride for the first time! Benjamin got so emotional as he saw Hannah and he made a cute camera frame gesture with his hands to freeze in time this moment forever. We really loved Benjamin’s super sweet reaction and we’re glad to have captured this moment for the lovely couple. 

Before their wedding ceremony, the bride and groom spent some time together and Hannah read a letter to Benjamin. The moment was so emotional and made for incredible authentic shots of their love and connection. For their wedding ceremony, Benjamin and Hannah planned for an outdoor setting in one of Estancia La Jolla’s lush green grounds. Their wedding altar had a beautiful circular arch which was decorated with colorful blooms, and wooden chairs were placed on either side for friends and family to witness their union. 

Benjamin’s father was their officiant and blessed them and their marriage. Benjamin and Hannah are very close to their family and said their vows in their loving presence with everyone supporting them each step of the way. One of the sweetest moments during Hannah and Benjamin’s ceremony was when they stole loving glances and looked at each other with so much happiness. Sealing their marriage with an epic dip and kiss, Benjamin and Hannah took their first steps as husband and wife as guests threw white rose petals in the air! 

After the ceremony, we took some family and couples portraits outdoors. Coupled with pleasant weather and great natural lighting, their family and couples portraits turned out amazing, especially in front of the wedding arch at their ceremony site. Benjamin and Hannah doted on each other as we continued taking their couples portraits, and Hannah’s laughter was so infectious and made for fantastic photos. 

Benjamin and Hannah’s wedding reception was buzzing with energy! The guests were having an absolute blast on the dance floor and danced their way through the night. Hannah and Benjamin’s  three-tiered cake looked too good to eat, but thankfully that didn’t stop anyone from indulging. Hannah and Benjamin’s wedding was truly filled with so many heartwarming moments and we were delighted to capture their joyous day.
