RF Wedding of the Week: Summer Camp Meets Bridal Gown by AcquaPhoto

Well we here at Rangefinder are certainly ready for summer! So for the Wedding of the Week before Memorial Day weekend, we had to go bright, we had to go vivid and we had to go to California.

San Diego-based wedding photography team Jen and Shane Fellows of AcquaPhoto captured the summer camp-themed, San Clemente wedding of Erin and Casey (who—you guessed it—met at summer camp in 5th grade). Styled by wedding planner Amorology, Jen says of the day, “I never imagined that a summer camp themed wedding could also feel so elegant and hip.”

Also in their supply was a tripod for long exposures “to capture the gorgeous lighting and ambiance as the sun went down!”

Jen says the most special moment between the couple was when they read their notes to each other before their First Look.  “I remember Erin’s face with tears streaming from her eyes and the biggest smile on her face,” the photographer says. “It is so inspiring to see people who found each other at such a young age and truly appreciate what they have together.”
