Solana Beach Engagement Session | Diana & Jeffery

One thing I always try to express to the people I photograph is that while I’m by no means against smiling, I’m very anti-fake smiling. Quick into this session with Diana and Jeffery I realized that would not be an issue. These guys are just genuinely happy, and they like being around each other. The smiles came often and naturally. Solana Beach was the backdrop to our shoot, and while we didn’t get a perfectly blue sky when you have love that endures forever, it just doesn’t really matter.

Thanks to Cheriene for not only providing the makeup, but the assistance on the shoot as well!

Hard Rock Hotel San Diego Wedding | Jin & Feng

On paper you’d never guess that Jin and Feng are rockstars. Their occupations have words like executive, management, and marketing in them. You know, not stuff that automatically has your hand forming the devil horns. I however can attest to their rockstar spirits, and even if their wedding hadn’t have gone at the Hard Rock Hotel in the heart of San Diego’s party crowd Gaslamp district – they would have brought the party anyhow. We love a great modern wedding, and the fun level from these two and their friends and family had made for one hell of a day!

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.
