It’s funny that sometimes the closer you are to someone, the harder it is to write something about their wedding that feels like it’s really doing justice to how much just being a part of it meant to your heart. I think I purposely didn’t write much about Jasmin in her engagement session write up just because something much sappier was seemingly inevitable when the wedding happened. You see I’ve known Jasmin over 15 years. And while I may have first described her to people as the sister of a close friend of mine, I no longer say that. While her brother remains a close friend to me Jasmin is just as close. If you were to ask me now who she is to me I’d say she’s a friend who feels like my sister. She is the type of person everyone wants in their life – literally one of the kindest most loving people I’ve ever met. Jasmin is the person who takes care of others, the person who you wonder how she can have so much to give.

In a way this wedding was the answer to a question I had in my mind for years. The question is- who takes care of Jasmin? I got my answer, and the answer is TomBosley the cat. Sorry that was a joke. No the real answer to who takes care of Jasmin is Brian. Brian takes care of Jasmin. Brian is amazing. He’s a sensitive, intelligent, and ultra talented guy. For me I think I tend to have turning points when the depth of a person resonates with me and I realized that when Brian proposed to her right after her father’s memorial. Now we all knew Jasmin and Brian were getting married, Jasmin bought the dress before she got the ring. The question really was how was Brian going to propose to a girl who absolutely knew it was coming? He did it during the most difficult time of her life. It was in my eyes the ultimate show of support he could make. It was something Jasmin would do.

This wedding had a lot of memories and dedication to the late Rodney Harris, whose presence was felt throughout the day. His passing began 2013 on a sad note, but I think he’d be happy that this celebration ended the year on a joyous one. Jasmin’s dedication to his memory and helping people is illustrated deeply in the foundation she helped start in his memory for local San Diego musicians: Hot Rod Helps.

If any wedding is a reminder to me how awesome my job is, it’s this one. Thanks guys.

PS- Yes, sometimes brides do keg stands.

We love referrals. I could probably start of this blog post with a less greedy/business-roboto statement, but it’s really true. We love referrals. You see it’s more a familiarity sorta thing. Having already known Laura from Crystal & Micah’s wedding in Portland a million billion years ago it was such a lovely familiar feeling to be around a few faces that we knew, as well as meet some amazing new ones for the first time. We also got to travel up to the Bay Area (Oakland to be specific, and no we sadly did not meet Too $hort), which is always a treat. Laura and Sean are just amazing people – you really could not meet a sweeter more genuine couple. And this is the part in my little paragraph where I could try to describe in a few sentences how awesome they are, or I could just say look below because the photos say it better than I ever could.

Today is just the beginning.

If you want a crash course on knowing what’s in someone’s heart – I suggest becoming a wedding photographer. Personality and connection is such an important part in the images we capture at someone’s wedding – for us meeting and getting to know people is pretty much a requirement. What we don’t know about our couples when we start the day usually gets filled in by the end of it. Sometimes the untold story that you will never know about people outside of your own experiences with them is told in the deep impact they have in the lives of others. And that’s what struck me most about Charissa and Greg’s wedding – how much they matter to the people in their lives. This is the part where I could say more, but the images tell the story better. Thanks Charissa and Greg for showing us how awesome you both are.

    Ooooh I rather love these photos – the first few have to be my favourite – great use of colour and texture and patternsReplyCancel

Two awesome people in San Diego’s most awesome North Park neighborhood! We had a great time hanging out with Courtney and Nick who came down from LA to hang out with some friends and of course fit in an engagement session. It just so happened that their friends were in North park, and North Park is also a great spot for portraits!
