From a photographer's standpoint, the venue is a BIG deal. Yes, good photographers can create great photos without a good location. But when you have a great location and a great photographer, then you can create something amazing. I find that you really find out the true character of a business by how they treat you when you are aren't their client. Everyone there at Balboa did an incredible job, servicing both the couple as well as accommodating other vendors, like myself. Definitely go and visit Balboa and meet with them. Great venue with an amazing location right next to the beach.
