April and Craig-Oceano Hotel and Spa Wedding-Half Moon Bay-Bay Area Photographer

I first met April and Craig when I photographed a wedding that April was a bridesmaid in. Six months later they were at the wedding of the sister of my first bride! Now it was their turn, and I was honored when they asked me to be their photographer as well! April and Craig were definitely made for each other. They are fun, dedicated, hardworking, adventurous, and very much in love with one another! Photographing them together was great because they are so natural with one another. When we went off for their bride and groom photos, we wanted to stay out there because we were just having so much fun! The scenery in Half Moon Bay was beautiful! The coordinator, Nancy, from Oceano Hotel and Spa, drove us to a spot that was surrounded by Cypress trees. There was also wooden stairs down to a small private beach! The overcast day brought a dreamy look to all of their photos, and it was well suited for the Half Moon Bay weather! When we finally pulled ourselves away from the beautiful beach, we went back to a wonderful reception at the Oceano Hotel full of laughter and dancing! The night was completed with a cigar bar and a donut dessert table for guests to enjoy! I love all of the unique touches that April and Craig had at their wedding, but what truly made their wedding unique was the love that they share! Congratulations to April and Craig Martin! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
