Amanda & George’s beautiful seaside wedding!

Congratulations to Amanda and George Casiano!

It was such a joy for Focal Instincts Photography to be a part of your amazing day in Seal Beach, California on July 27, 2013.  George and Amanda looked amazing on their special day. Amanda with her classic hollywood glamour style and George looking especially handsome for his bride. The location was perfect and the weather cooperated perfectly!  The Rivers End Cafe is just a short walk from the pier where Amanda has so many memories including her proposal from George. The perfect backdrop for the perfect romance.
