A small “wedding photographer” dream of mine has been to shoot a wedding at the Carmel Mission in Carmel, CA. Being from Fresno, I didn’t think that it was all that likely that I would ever get the opportunity though. Then Brianne called me. Brianne was a bridesmaid in another wedding I shot a couple years ago, and when she told me she was getting married at the Mission, I could barely contain my excitement! Fast forward to a couple months before her wedding when she called to let me know her reception location had changed to the Cardella Winery in Mendota, and yes, it was still following the wedding. So that brings me to the most miles travelled on one day while shooting a wedding – starting the morning in Carmel at the hotel, going to a ceremony at the amazing Carmel Mission, followed by a long drive to Mendota to shoot at the fabulous Cardella Winery. I should also point out that the Cardella Winery is one of the few reception locations that can hold it’s own following a ceremony at a site as beautiful and rich with history as the Carmel Mission. Take a look at some of my favorites from the day…
