Chris and Culture, and I had so much fun playing with all the cool backdrops of Balboa Park on a bright summer day. Nothing brings some extra flair to a session like a few props. We did some ninja/geisha stuff to compliment their style, and their wedding at the Japanese Friendship Garden.
Sara and Craig chose the Mt. Woodson Castle for their wedding. They knew their big day would be such a whirlwind that they wanted to get photos with the castle on a day that wouldn’t be planned so tight. We had a lovely May day, playing around on the rocky walkways, and under the great old oaks.
This wedding is a perfect example that a small, intimate event can still be a wonderful ceremonious occasion. Robert contacted me after his daughter hired me as her wedding photographer. He and Tammie put together a wonderful day, with no fuss, at the South Coast Winery. The Rose Arbor was fresh and green after spring rains, and photographed beautifully. I am so happy to have been part of such a magical day.
Ali and Kyle had a spectacular wedding at the La Costa Resort. We were sweating some spring rains, but the clouds broke and let the light shine through to make for some stunning photography. Ali really focused on the details that let the best parts of the Resort support her unique wedding look. I loved the flowers and the centerpieces, they really reflected her care for making them her own.
I was so moved by Laura contacting me from Florida, and hiring me as her photographer over the phone. We shared a mutual vibe, and it paid off on an oddly really rainy day that forced a bunch of plan changes. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful ceremony, and there was no stopping the party with this crowd!
