Olivia & Jeffery's Wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado

In 2005, while attending UC San Diego, I applied for a photography internship at the world famous Hotel Del Coronado.  I was accepted, and as a senior in my final quarter of school, I was able to spend my Fridays taking photos for the public relations and marketing department.  I would be sent on assignments throughout the grounds of the hotel, and when I would finish, I would kick off my shoes and spend some time on the sand.  Coronado's beach was ranked #1 beach in the United States in 2012,  and I enjoyed spending every second of my internship there.  At the conclusion of my internship, my manager gave me a gift of their famous Sunday Brunch, for two.  I invited Chanda to come with, and after enjoying our brunch, we went around taking photos on the beach.

When we got engaged in Coronado, I took her back to the Del, and we had Sunday Brunch again.  I will never forget my memories of Coronado, San Diego, and the Del.  We recently did a wedding at the hotel last week, which really brought me full circle.  Here is a photo I shot that night, and one I shot on film back in 2005.

Shot on film in 2005.  I got to climb the valet roof in front of the hotel for this shot.
