At a time when San Diego was still a sleepy little town, four adventuresome young women who spent hours rowing together on the bay, decided to start a club. These four San Diego women, Zulette Lamb, Lena Polhamus, Agnes Polhamus, and Caroline Polhamus, who used the initials of their first names to form the acronym, ZLAC, founded ZLAC Rowing Club in 1892, a time when a rowing club for women was a completely new idea.
So there is the history of our Wedding site.
*Photographers note, when I first saw the reception hall I knew that it would be a challenge. That challenge being to make sure that you could see this beautiful hall in the background of the images. The hall is made of a dark wood. Dark colors absorb light, so if I did not set up some additional lights the subject would look as though they were in a black hole. And as you can see in the images, you can see the antique wood of this hall in all of the backgrounds except the last shot because I had already packed up to leave when their friends made a friendship circle, and I could not miss that.
We begin with the first glance, which is always a challenge to shoot. Then we moved to just images of the Bride & Groom. Then on to the ceremony where it was a gorgeous day in Mission Bay. After the ceremony we did some of the group shots. Then it was on to the First Dance, where the Bride & Groom got a little fancy with their dancing. Next was the Bouquet toss. I love when I can catch those flowers in mid flight. And last, but not least, the friendship circle.
