Studio Vérité Photography was born in Chicago and now our official home is California. So it was fitting to shoot a Chicago couple’s destination wedding in California. Erin and Mike wanted a wedding that was unique, not so traditional, and representative of themselves. They chose to have an intimate wedding in Carmel By The Sea – one of the most gorgeous locations in California – at a private residence on top of a mountain the overlooked the ocean and the city of Carmel. We took portraits at the Point Lobos State Reserve, a place that I personally hold dear to my heart because it is one of the first places I took my Chicago born husband to sell him on moving to California. Erin and Mike’s wedding was fabulous and I feel so lucky to have witnessed and shared a part in their perfectly done California Style affair.
