Getting married in January is always risky, even here in typically sunny Orange County. Mike and Lura had a small wedding at a park that was conveniently just literally around the block from me here in San Clemente. Being able to walk to the ceremony is a rare luxury! There was a rare January heat wave and the temperature was in the 80’s. This couple was so fun to work with and they couldn’t stop smiling! We walked down from the park to the San Clemente State Beach below and I photographed some portraits during the warm, summer-like sunset that turned out awesome.
