Bernadette and Dustin initially contacted us because they were planning a wedding in May of next year. Both are in the Marines and in order for Bernadette and Dustin to live together they were legally married in June. Initially they weren't planning on telling anyone, but decided it would just be easier to announce their elopement so they could talk more openly about their plans. So instead of planning a large wedding they decided to use their photos to announce their marriage and hold a small reception next year. We were so thrilled to be able to capture their love so they can share their story with their friends and family! It was a truly beautiful evening in La Jolla and we are so happy for them!
