San Diego Elopement | Sara & Gilly

When we first got Sara’s email detailing her plan to “escape the polar vortex” to marry her partner Gilly in “the smallest tiniest least weddingy wedding ever,” we knew we had our hands on some awesome people. This fact was doubly cemented after Sara’s “really intense” friend suggested she send photos of her and Gilly so we’d know who we were photographing. After reporting to her that I received white boxes, she replied – “My bad. Classic struggle bus.”

So a few weeks later they flew in from their polar vortex to the mind numbing temperate weather of San Diego. We photographed their tiniest least weddingy wedding ever, followed up with a fun portrait session in La Jolla. Their love is real, and awesome, and most decidedly not a struggle bus.

Hope you two are enjoying that bumper sticker.

La Valencia Hotel Wedding | Lauren & Mike

If you’ve ever been to La Jolla you know the La Valencia Hotel. It’s big and pink, and the Spanish architecture is a striking contrast to the natural beauty of the surf at the cove below. While clear skies are also an iconic companion to that image the reality is that rain happens on a lot of weddings. The thing about weather (especially weather in San Diego), is it typically comes in spurts. I can’t think of a wedding I’ve shot where it just poured all day long. Usually there is a break long enough to venture out at some point. I knew that day was going to be epic. The clouds were menacing, the surf was pounding. As we were getting ready and watching the sky glare at us darkly we got to that point when you have to make the call – are you going to do the ceremony indoors? Or do you put out the chairs and cross your fingers? I guess when you’re from Las Vegas you’re used to rolling the dice. Whatever universal or meteorological powers you believe in – our desert dwellers managed to not get rained out entirely. Luck landed in our favor long enough to not only get a reprieve on the ceremony, but also a little time for us to take some portraits down by the water. Rain or shine, nothing was going to stop Lauren and Mike from having a great time on their day.

Pacific Beach Proposal | Whitney & Dave

San Diego is a popular vacation for a lot of people who are looking for a break from cold and dreary weather. And boy are we familiar with the climate Whitney and Dave are coming from. It always seems ironic that when we get visitors from the Pacific Northwest they manage to hit San Diego on the rare day that we are a bit dark and cloudy. Two things keep your mind off cloudy skies – 1) the calculated planning involved in getting one unsuspecting lady to a pre-determined spot at a pre-determined time, and 2) getting a marriage proposal. Diamonds – they look a bit like ice, but tend to warm most girls up. So after Dave dropped the bomb, and Whitney realized he had pulled a good one over on her – we took to the streets of Pacific Beach and Mission Bay for a fun portrait shoot. Congratulations to Whitney and Dave!

I love the scenes. Those sneak shots and black and white photos caught me. Well done!

Annenberg Community Beach House Santa Monica Wedding | Adrienne & Mario

Our first wedding of the year was a fun one with Adrienne and Mario. We love the opportunity to get up to the Los Angeles area for weddings, so many great modern venues in the area. After their ceremony on the beach in Malibu we headed to the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica. As a person who loves modern architecture I was pretty stoked with the venue. Bring on the concrete! And thanks to Adrienne and Mario for allowing us to capture such a fun and exciting day.
