Morro Bay, California … The WSL SLO CAL OPEN at Morro Bay

First of all, full disclosure: it was our first time in Morro Bay, California …

Analysis: it’s freakin’ rad, bro! From a quick visit to Wavelengths (Andy left behind his trusty winter hat) to a fabulous dinner at Thai Bounty/Milanés Cuban Cuisine and a rockin’ after party at The Siren … We had a blast over those epic 5 days!

Now, here’s the story … We’re super stoked to sponsor two local World Surf League competitions this year: The SLO CAL OPEN at Pismo Beach and the event featured on this blog, The SLO CAL OPEN at Morro Bay.

Andy McKay of Surfers of Tomorrow and SLO CAL chose a perfect spot for their second comp of the year! Morro Bay rocks! Now, scroll on and check out some of the awesome behind the scenes activities! And thanks to so many of the great sponsors,some of whom were able to be there in person: Mid-State Containers, Catch Some Air, and Surfing for Hope, to name a few.

Nikki and Calvin’s Shooting Range Gender Reveal

We love Nikki & Calvin! Their shooting range gender reveal recently went down in the Arizona desert.

They truly are beautiful humans. And they roll with an awesome crew! We have known Nikki & Calvin for many years. In fact, Nikki helped us photograph many, many weddings, from Hawaii to Colorado to all over Arizona. You might even remember seeing her at a wedding show or two back in the day! We’re stoked they’re having a girl!

Scroll on to check out a few highlights from their late morning celebration in the beautiful Arizona desert.

Craig & Maria | A Maricopa, Arizona, Wedding

Craig & Maria’s Maricopa, Arizona, wedding was a beautiful celebration of family, life, and love! They chose to say their vows in front of family and close friends in the private Province community. Craig & Maria both work for Katie Souza Ministries and work, in particular with prison outreach. They have hearts for the broken and hearts for restoration. And their hearts are beautiful! Another mentor, and friend, Patricia King, of Patricia King Ministries, officiated their ceremony. The day so well represented the simple truth that love never fails … And, when we think about Craig & Maria, they represent that truth so well themselves!

Taliesin West Wedding | Arizona-California Wedding Photographer

What an honor to photograph Daphne & Michael’s Taliesin West wedding in Scottsdale, Arizona. Never heard of Taliesin West, you say? Well, here’s the skinny! Not only was Taliesin West Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and “desert laboratory” from the late 1930s until his death in 1959, but currently it is home to the School of Architecture at Taliesin and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. But far more important that all that jazz? It’s a favorite location for Daphne & Michael, one of their earliest dates … and the perfect spot for an intimate wedding!

Daphne & Michael chose to share their vows in front of a great group of family and friends. A phenomenal group of humans, a fine selection of humanitarians, intellectuals, old school punk rockers, and even two Nobel Prize nominees. Awesome!

Tattooed, Rock ‘n’ Roll Grove Wedding | Sadie & Jon

Sadie & Jon’s tattooed, rock ‘n’ roll grove wedding was, quite simply … awesome: former bandmates, good friends, family, and a celebration of love … and life! The day began at Legacy Golf Resort, where everyone met up to get ready. Savante Salon took care of the ladies, while the guys dialed it in a nearby room. From there, they headed over to an Arizona grove, Venue at the Grove (to be precise … and for their final touches, ceremony, and celebration).
