Max and Aly are both San Clemente natives but actually met on the other side of the nation! They were both working in Washington DC when their paths crossed and their love story began.
Aly loves all things vintage. She is one of the owners of Sundrop Vintage and I’m sure their wedding at Swallow Creek Ranch in Cayucos, CA will be decked out with all their unique treasures.
Max loves rebuilding vintage Porsches and I have to give him big thanks for recently helping me with my 1972 VW Bug. He just spent 6 hours putting in a new exhaust for me!
We had a fun engagement session all around San Clemente, which was the perfect setting for these locals. We started at Calafia State beach with the all the pretty flowers in bloom and had to get photos with their cutest dog, Franklin, because he’s family. Then we were off to a local surf shop to take advantage of a big mural, and had a sunset finale at San Onofre State Beach.
Max secretly had me photograph him proposing to Aly a few months prior. You can view those photos here: Max + Aly // San Clemente Proposal
Max and Aly, I can’t tell you enough how happy I am for you two. You two are some of the sweetest people I’ve met and can’t wait to photograph your wedding!
