Destination Wedding at Pelican Hill Resort – Amy + Tomer!

Destination Wedding at Pelican Hill Resort – Newport Beach, California

Can’t wait to share all these wonderful photos taken at Amy + Tomer’s destination wedding at the renowned Pelican Hill Resort! I love to travel and I am always excited to photograph a destination wedding!

Amy + Tomer were familiar with my photographs as I was the wedding photographer for their friends in Chicago. (Fabulous weddings for Dayna + Todd // Maggie + Phil) It always means a lot when clients refer me to their friends + family! I’m also looking forward to shooting their friend’s (Dana + Jay) wedding next year!!!

In case you missed Amy + Tomer’s engagement photos in Chicago, be sure to check them out!
