“Everything came together beautifully for Brenda and Kasey’s engagement session. Their choice of outfits, sweet props, and glowing light created the perfect back drop to showcase their love. As a wedding coordinator, Brenda knows how to envision the perfect event and will have tons of great DIY details to personalize their day. They are some of the sweetest and easy going people, and we are honored to photograph their wedding this fall!” – Walking Eagle Photography

“Well, I am a Wedding & Event Director/ Coordinator in Carlsbad and through-out the 7 years of experience I have worked with MANY photographers and vendors, and it wasn’t until I met Laura and Clay from Walking Eagle Photography – that I fell in love with any photographer or photo. I have done many weddings and events with the two of them and each time we work together they are always calm, passionate and focused. They are so sweet, reasonable and most importantly talented. I can’t say enough, and my pictures speak lengths of their work, I’ve even had people message me on Facebook and email asking me about my engagement photos because they are so unique and impressive…

..OH YES! haha!

Well, like I said I am a wedding coordinator and I have coordinated weddings of all shapes and sizes. So with that said I know how important and special it is to customize and embellish your wedding with the brides and grooms hobbies, interests and personality. My fiancé is a landscaper and LOVES plants and designing with plants, so we will have a lot of plant walls, potted succulent gifts and plants incorporated through-out our florals. We are also getting crafty and making our agenda on used pallets, creating mixed linen backdrops, and the list could really go on. Something near and dear to our heart is the Chile infused tequila we are making for our specialty drink. We fell in-love with “Chili-Margs” over a year ago and it’s our go to when we are looking to enjoy a sunset drink or meet with some friends, so we have been practicing infusing our own tequila with various chilies and flavors and hopefully we master this in time for the wedding!

..Our wedding will be held at Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad California. The location is a perfect mix of beauty, rustic and calm. Our setting will be heavy floral and plants (at my fiancé’s request), with gold and blush touches, and we have 9 bridesmaids and 9 groomsmen (yikes!). With all of the love, beauty and support around us I can’t wait to see my fiancé for the first time at a special and private first look, I can’t wait to exchange our personal vows, toast with a margarita and share our love under the summer stars with our closest family and friends!” – Brenda, the bride-to-be
