Coronado Community Center Wedding | Ashley & Mike

One of the biggest ways I can tell if I’m going to get a long with someone is how willing they are to consume Mexican food in my company. You can absolutely forge a bond with people over breakfast burritos, which is exactly how we met these two for the first time to go over details of their Coronado Community Center wedding. Obviously any wedding photographer will tell you that referrals are the absolute best clients – creating art for your friends is an even more rewarding experience than normal. Tracing those referral connections isn’t always easy though. I am going to break it down for you: Me – my friend Justin – my friend Justin’s brother Nick (also my friend) – my friend Justin’s brother Nick’s friend Zeke (also a new friend of ours) – my friend Justin’s brother Nick’s friend Zeke’s friend Ashley. Boom the circle got completed. If that didn’t make any sense to you that’s okay I sort of did that on purpose. The important part is that we love the opportunity to make friends with friends of friends and document important events in the lives of new friends (of older friends?). And these friends (Ashley & Mike) are pretty awesome people. And their wedding was an absolute blast. Of course that ought to be evident in the photos, so go ahead… take a look!

Beautiful pictures! Congrats!

A very lovely wedding, wonderful use of the light to photograph the pre-cereomny photos and the B&W portraits of the bridal party. The post ceremony photos are also beautifully done, as well as the detail shots of the reception. Terrific job capturing the emotions and action at the reception, all around an excellent wedding perfectly captured.

Great job. This wedding looks fantastic. I especially like the really creative wedding party shots.

WPPI Las Vegas

Melissa and I are headed out to Las Vegas for the annual WPPI convention! If you’re not familiar it’s a wedding photographer convention that covers new products, gear, and techniques. There may or may not be some social element as well… anyhow we’ll do our best to promptly respond to emails but if we’re a little slower than usual that’s why!


Del Mar Engagement Session | Lindsey & Burke

I had the best intentions to get Lindsey and Burke’s Del Mar engagement session up on the blog to kick off Valentine’s day… unfortunately here it is with just a few minutes remaining and I’m just now posting. Well it’s still technically Valentine’s day, and this session at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar is definitely a favorite! Burke did a pretty awesome job on those numbers too!

La Jolla Cove Bridge Club Wedding | Barbara & Scott

The La Jolla Bridge Club is a little building on the bluff of Ellen Browning Scripps Park. It has one of the most amazing ocean views in San Diego. It’s got green grass, interesting trees, and is situated near the heart of La Jolla. And yes like all places in San Diego it’s normally known for amazing weather. The perfect spot for an intimate wedding. This was however our last wedding of 2012, and in December – and yes, we do sort of have a winter here. The weather report that day had been a little iffy, but I really wasn’t expecting it to be a big damper on the events. As I was photographing Barbara and her girls getting ready I noticed the clouds getting a little dramatic, but if you have ever photographed a wedding you’ll know that sometimes you just get kind of focused on the action in the little bubble around you. I got a photo text from Melissa who had gone on to the venue to meet up with Scott and the sky was looking rather apocalyptic. As we headed to venue the rain was really coming down and it was pretty obvious that the outdoor ceremony was going to be scrapped. But hey – it’s a wedding and you have to go with the flow. Everything happens for a reason right?

Barbara and Scott got the first rainbow I have ever seen at a wedding. They had some of the most amazing cloud formations in the sky – and to me if that’s not a mark of something amazing (or a sign), I’m not sure what is. We really do love small events, and getting the chance to get to know Barbara, Scott, their amazing daughters, and their friends and family was a fantastic way to end our 2012 season. Small party, big love.
