Shutters on the Beach Wedding in Santa Monica

Samantha and Adam’s Shutters Wedding

The Couple

I’ve said this before in the past, but I’m truly fortunate to work with the best brides and grooms I could ever hope for! Samantha and Adam were amazing to work with because they were so relaxed and easy-going. On a day where it’s easy for brides and grooms to get stressed out and worried, Sam and Adam took everything in stride and chose to enjoy and celebrate their day. And that really made it easy for their love and connection for each other to shine through in their wedding images!

Shutters on the Beach

What a gorgeous venue for a wedding! I instantly fell in love with Shutter’s Craftsman style exterior and New England themed decor. Shutters feels sophisticated but laid back at the same time so it never takes itself too seriously. And the Pacific Terrace with it’s amazing view of the Pacific Ocean is perfect for a beach wedding where you won’t have to worry about your guests getting sand in their shoes! If you’re interested in tying the knot by the beach in style, I highly recommend considering a Shutters on the Beach Wedding!

My Favorite Part of the Wedding

Hands down, my favorite part of the day has to be recreating the iconic umbrella image from the beginning credits of “Friends”! Samantha and one of her bridesmaids are huge fans of the TV show “Friends” so she really wanted to create her own wedding version of the umbrella shot. Since Sam and Adam were having a beach wedding, I decided to set up the image outside on a bench along the beach. It was a bit of a challenge because the bridal party was larger than the 6 friends in the show, but it was a blast setting everything up and it will definitely be something I remember for a long time!
