It all began when a savvy city girl (and future prosecution lawyer!) from San Diego traveled to a small town in Arkansas for a little adventure. I’m sure she never expected in a million years to meet the man of her dreams while “muddin” and getting eaten alive by jiggers but low and behold… that is exactly what happened. John won her over with his sweet southern charm and possibly his love for fast shinny cars. Despite the distance, Melissa & John’s love grew and not long after their first meeting… John proposed! Obviously, Melissa said “yes” and the epic wedding planning began. Melissa poured her heart into pretty much every aspect of her wedding and it shined in all the details. As a lover of all things pretty… I had a blast photographing all those little things from the “z” monograms hanging in the trees to the tiny messages in bottles that they gave away as favors.

Their wedding which began with a blind-folded groom “first look” on the roof of the Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego and ended with a speedy send off in a red corvette from the Admiral Kidd oozed of style and beautiful moments. It’s hard to put it all into words so I think I’ll just let the photos tell the story of their day. Hope you enjoy!

Hard to believe that in 2006 Jasmin was making wedding history as the flower girl in our wedding that defied the typical 1st grade age limit. Now she’s getting married pretty soon herself, and I’m going to avoid dating myself by saying something about her being all grown up. Jasmin and Brian are not only friends, but essentially our neighbors as well (La Mesa for life) – and there really isn’t anything more fun than photographing your friends. Their La Mesa (yes I said La Mesa) wedding is going to be awesome!

I like you and I know why.  I like you because you’re a good person to like. I like you because when I tell you something special, you know it’s special. And you remember it a long, long time. You say, Remember when you told me something special? And both of us remember.

Laura and Martin had a great day to remember.  A blue sky puffy white cloud sort of day.  With bridesmaids the colors of a Skittles rainbow, friends and family smiling and laughing, and  the cutest backyard in the history of backyard weddings.  We started the day off in Coronado for their Centennial Park ceremony.  From there we headed to Presidio Park, a favorite spot of mine for it’s quiet amongst the trees.  We finished the day and evening off at their home with their awesome group of friends and family.  Proof that even small weddings can completely rock the house (and the back of the house)!

    Greetings from London! I just wanted to say what a fantastic venue and beautiful photos. You are so lucky to have outdoor weddings, in London its normally too wet :( Thanks for sharing such good work.ReplyCancel

It’s not often that you shoot a wedding and at the end say to the clients and their families, “see you guys in a few days in Cabo.” That in of itself felt like we got invited along on their honeymoon (hey we’re really not opposed to that), only in actuality it was for part two of their wedding celebration. Lindsay and Ryan sure know how to throw a good wedding – both big and small. Whether it was the pounding surf (and by pounding I mean set foot in the water and be instantly dragged out to sea and eaten by sharks), or the modern architecture of the Pueblo Bonito Pacifico (translation – pretty town on the Pacific) – this wedding had beauty covered. Not only that, but Lindsay and Ryan are hot. And by hot I mean good looking. Just have a look for yourselves.
