Kristen and Mike – Dana Point Wedding Photography

Kristen and Mike’s wedding took place at the Chart House Restaurant, with stunning clifftop views of Dana Point harbor and the Pacific Ocean. What a wonderfully open and welcoming couple they are! We had only ever spoken by phone, as the distances were too great for a face-to-face meeting. But within minutes of meeting them for the first time, I felt like I’d known them for ages.




Food and venue: Chart House Dana Point
Flowers: Sarah Converse Florals
Cake: It’s All About the Cake
DJ: Battleson Entertainment
Hair and Makeup: Lisa Leming

Technical stuff: I shot this primarily with two Nikon F100 35mm cameras, and a Mamiya 645AF. Kodak Portra film and a little CineStill tungsten film. I also had a few reception shots on my Fuji X100 (digital).

  1. Matt Haines is a wonderful photographer. He was very professional and fun to work with. Kristen and I are extremely pleased with the quality of the pictures. I can’t wait to get some prints and make a wedding album. If anyone needs a great wedding or portrait photographer, this is your guy.

  2. Thanks mike! People are going to think I paid you to say that. 🙂 it was great working with you and Kristen!
