Trash the Dress | Coronado Island and Hotel Del Day After Shoot with JJ + Adrian

0001 Trash the Dress | Coronado Island and Hotel Del Day After Shoot with JJ + Adrian

 

Well, you’ve waited long enough! Here it is … JJ + Adrian’s Trash the Dress Session on Coronado Island! The whole time we were doing the shoot, Adrian and JJ were saying to each other … can you believe we’re actually doing it!? Adrian told me that JJ had mentioned wanting to do a trash the dress session even before their wedding date, and it seemed almost as if it was the same conversation I hear couples go through on a wedding day “Can you believe we’re actually getting married today!?” It was as if this session was an opportunity to again celebrate their new marriage.  They were married back in September of 2011, but were waiting until the spring to go on their honeymoon, so just days before leaving for their honeymoon we met to do the Trash the Dress together.

Kristy and I met JJ + Adrian at Star Park, not far from the Hotel Del Coronado.  We started here, because of the special meaning the park has to them as a couple.  Even though they now live north of LA, JJ grew up on Coronado Island and met Adrian while she and her family still lived here.  They actually met at her grandmother’s old home not a block away from Star Park so we definitely wanted to include some of the backdrop of that area which was the place their relationship started.  There’s so much great scenery all around Coronado Island, we could have walked in any direction and had amazing backdrops, but it was so fun to just wander the couple streets making fun casual portraits together before actually ‘Trashing’ her dress.  After a while, we started to make our way down to Coronado beach in front of the Hotel Del Coronado.  Slowly working our way towards the water.  JJ + Adrian were brave as I just heard the surf report yesterday say that the water had warmed up to 62° which to me is still REALLY cold!

JJ + Adrian … thank you so much for getting in touch with me about your Trash the Dress photos! I’m so glad to have been a part of this with you guys, and am so happy for you both!  I hope you had a fantastic honeymoon and hope to hear all about it!

Coronado Island Trash the Dress Sneak Peek | JJ + Adrian

01 Coronado Island Trash the Dress Sneak Peek | JJ + Adrian

 

Here’s a quick peek at the Trash the Dress session I shot with JJ and Adrian on Coronado Island last week.  I promised them I would get something up before they went away on their honeymoon and was thrilled with these two images.  JJ grew up on Coronado Island, and her grandmother lived just down the street from the Hotel Del.  She told me “When I was a little girl, I never really imagined my wedding day, but always thought it would be at the Hotel Del”.  Kristy and I had a fantastic time with these two, and there’s a bunch more images coming from our shoot on Coronado.  So keep tuned in for the full post … coming soon!

 

P.S.

Have a great honeymoon JJ + Adrian!
