How can you go wrong when you have such a jaw dropping back drop as La Jolla, California for your wedding? Nestled in the La Jolla cove and sitting right on the shore of the Pacific Ocean, La Valencia Hotel made my job a piece of cake. Also, having the prep photos, ceremony and reception in one location made for more time to capture great images. I took advantage of La Valencia’s interior with its Mediterranean style, hand-painted ceiling and spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. Robyn and Thad were wonderful to work with and had so many cool ideas that made the photos really pop. After spending the day in at this Southern California resort, it’s obvious why they call La Valencia the “the jewel of La Jolla”.
