The Dana on Mission Bay Wedding – {Paul and Becky}

Becky + Paul were married on a gorgeous November afternoon on Mission Bay. The whole day went smoothly, from the sweet first look through the Smore’s making at the end of the night!  Brenda + Ania from Swann Soirees made sure the day was flawless. Becky + Paul are two of the sweetest people I have worked with and I loved getting to know them at their Disney engagement session and at the wedding!  Plus any bride who has 3 shoes and two wedding dresses on her big day is okay by me!  Enjoy their day as seen through my lens!

Paradise Point Wedding – {Brett + Julie}

I adore these two!  We did a last minute engagement session and it helped me get to know them better!  The day went perfectly & their bridal party was so calm and helpful.  Julie was all smiles the entire day.  Immediately after the ceremony, a hotel guest approached a bridesmaid and offered his old Woodie car for photos.  What an awesome opportunity.  Brett + Julie really wanted to make their wedding scream California (since most of the guests were from out of state) and this car only helped!  The sparklers were the perfect ending touch!

Murietta Birth Photography – {Baby Jack}

I’ve been a little preoccupied this week with a new man in my life.  My best friend had a baby last Thursday and I am totally smitten.  I’m a little biased but isn’t he the cutest?

Little Italy, San Diego Engagement – {Ivy + Art}

These two definitely love to laugh!  Art was joking and making silly faces the entire shoot…which kept Ivy in stitches of course!  My abs hurt from laughing too.  I love the colors of this shoot, just looking back over these images make me smile!  I can’t wait til their Pala Mesa wedding this Fall!
