Point Loma Wedding | Ashley & Carlos

Ashley and Carlos’ wedding brought us back to Point Loma – which is one of my favorite areas of San Diego. The NTC North Chapel in Liberty Station was our ceremony site, followed up with a reception at the Admiral Kidd Club (got to love that view of the city). My sentiment for the Point Loma neighborhood probably comes from the number of scenes from Top Gun that were shot in the area, and not so much that actual legitimate military surrounding it. Carlos is also a Marine and not a Navy guy so I’m not exactly sure where I’m going with this whole thing other than to say I think Point Loma is a pretty cool spot to get married. We had an awesome time that day hanging out with Ashley, Carlos, and their whole crew.

William D. Evans Sternwheeler Wedding | Christin & Russ

Professor, what’s another word for pirate treasure? Yep. It’s booty. Christin and Russ had a non-pirate themed wedding on the Bahia Resort Hotel’s William D. Evans Sternwheeler paddle boat – the bridal party brought the booty. In fact it all started off like a normal wedding, and I knew we were going to have fun – I mean Christin and Russ like to smile and have a good time. Maybe I should have had an inkling that it was going to be a memorable day when the bridesmaids starting doing shots of 5 Hour Energy before the ceremony. Christin and her ladies sure looked bootiful beautiful that day. Like most weddings emotions ran high at times – and then the bridal party would do something crazy and laughter ensued. It was an amazing blend of love and hilarity. Their dedication to each other (illustrated deeply by Russ missing the Arizona game to actually get married that day), the personalities of their friends and family, gorgeous San Diego weather, and the fact that they were on a boat made this wedding one that’s going to be a tough one to beat for 2013. And it’s not actually a competition people – but on the off chance that some of our more competitive couples are reading this – they had bagpipes. Bagpipes on a boat. And they have nice butts.

Game on.

Torrey Pines State Park Engagement Session | Charissa & Greg

Torrey Pines is Melissa’s favorite place in San Diego. If we’re talking strictly ocean views for me it’s a tie between the Cabrillo National Monument and Torrey Pines. Torrey Pines does have the advantage over Cabrillo in size and hiking trails. We try and go on a hike there once or twice a month. Truth be told it’s not exactly a vigorous hike if you’re on foot… I mean once you’re up the hill it’s a done deal. Exercise is essentially over and for the rest of the time it’s just an amazing view. Charissa and Greg had only been there once prior – that is when they got engaged. So it was a real treat to get to show them some of the trails we’re familiar with that they weren’t. The place is magic.

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.
