Balboa Park and La Jolla Cove Wedding Portraits – Sam and Arzo

Arzo and Sam had a quiet, private wedding ceremony at the Courthouse, just the two of them.  Exactly how they wanted it to be.  I met up with them a few days later for some official wedding portraits since besides the marriage, the photos were important to them.  Arzo had a simple rose bouquet made by Wholesale Flowers and we ended the evening at sunset in La Jolla Cove.


Brawley Wedding – Katie and Jared

This was my first time all the way to Brawley!  Katie and Jared are both from this area and were joined by their 400 closest family and friends.  My largest wedding to date!  We had gorgeous weather, beautiful details, delicious steak (from Katie’s parents ranch) and a fun dancing crowd – including a rad cover band!  During the ceremony Katie wore a mantilla that was also worn by her mother and her grandmother!  Such a beautiful tradition.

Jon and Eva got married last month and Mandi shot their engagement session just weeks prior!  They had a great time around Paradise Point and Jon’s son was able to get in a few photos as well!  Paradise Point is one of my all time favorite venues!


Balboa Park and Coronado Engagement – Kristin and Fred

I had such a fun shoot with Fred and Kristin a few months back!  We met at Balboa Park and then headed to Coronado to the site of their first date!  I am sad that I was not available for their Dallas wedding, which I know is going to be a blast!  Have an amazing wedding you two!! xo

Mandi photographed this beautiful wedding of Veronica and Tory on the Pt Loma sub base earlier this year. I was fortunate enough to tag along and we had a great time!  Lots of smiles, you could feel the love Vero and Tory had for each other and their family and friends!  Mandi started off the day with the Vero at Liberty Station while I was with the gentleman chatting about beer in IB. 🙂
