I called him “Lanin” and he called me “David.” Landen is a friend from high school who I knew from when I was just 13 and he married his beautiful bride, Karissa, in San Diego. He’s now a badass firefighter and he’s sure been busy during this scorcher of a summer. I had the pleasure to document their engagement, wedding photos, and wedding video. We shot their engagement photos in and around cloudy San Juan Capistrano and they had their wedding in one of my favorite cities, San Diego at BRICK in Liberty Station. The guys even got haircuts at Dover Honing Co. in Gaslamp District! Later this year, I even got to meet Karissa’s family during the spring for some family photos after they got married. Working on this project has given me so much joy and I’m so thankful for the relationships that have been built with their friends and family over time.
