SDSW Featured Shoot: Modern Japanese

Tue, Nov 3 2015 11:14 | Permalink
From time to time we get the amazing opportunity to work with some of the most talented vendors in San Diego. A few months ago we collaborated with Stephanie who had a vision for creating a Modern Japanese Tablescape. Our shoot was featured in the San Diego Style Weddings magazine! It's safe to say her vision & hard work of all these vendors was a success!

Thank you to all the amazing vendors that made this shoot possible & thank you to San Diego Style Weddings for featuring us!

Tina + Kellen | Coronado Island Engagement Session

Tue, Apr 14 2015 01:47 | Permalink

 It was a normal Friday night on Coronado Island until this couple walked out and lit up the entire beach.

  Kellen in his uniform and Tina in her perfect "spring-time" sundress gave this photo shoot such a classic and romantic feel.  Tina has a great eye for fashion and arrived at our shoot with important features that she knew she wanted photographed. We love her suggestions of the knot and the dog-tags. Plus, sneaking a kiss behind the American flag is pretty high up on the cute factor.

We are very appreciative to all of those that serve in the Armed Forces and we our grateful that our community is filled with such heroes.  We are especially grateful for Tina and Kellen for letting us capture this special moment fin their lives.

The rings next to the emblem of the Marines highlight two strong and beautiful legacies.

Stay tuned for more great videos and beautiful shoots.

Tram + Khanh | Old Poway Park Vintage Engagement Session

Mon, Dec 8 2014 11:42 | Permalink
Tram and Khanh are one heck of a cute couple. 

We all came together at Old Poway Park for this specific engagement shoot.  We love to shoot at Old Poway Park because it is what I like to call an inception location.  You get one giant lush park with tons of smaller, more intimate places to take photos. There are locations inside of locations. Inception.

The park is next an old train station so there is a great vintage feel to everything:  Train tracks, box cars, white picket fences.  Khanh came up with the idea to include the suitcase which gave the whole shoot a cool narrative.

Can't you just see these two hitting the road, on the lam,  Bonnie and Clyde style.  What is in that suitcase Khanh???

They both enjoy photography and have a great eye together so it was a huge pleasure and ease to shoot the two of them.

We will update the blog very soon with photos from their actual wedding.  Keep an eye out!


Danielle + Garrett | La Costa Resort Real Wedding

Wed, Jan 8 2014 12:20 | Permalink

Danielle & Garrett's wedding was at held the beautiful La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California. As our team arrived and saw all of the care going into the details, we knew it was going to be an extremely special day.

The couple made it official in front of their friends and family, overlooking the green hills of the La Costa golf course.  Their reception followed and was filled with great toasts, lots of dancing, and tons of personalized details like elephant figurines and an ASU trident groom cake!

Danielle and Garrett are both stunning and generally just cool people, so it is no surprise that everything about their wedding day represented their fun loving personalities. We are so happy for them.

Jessica + Jake | Grand Tradition Estate

Tue, Jun 18 2013 03:37 | Permalink

Jessica and Jake are both from Las Vegas, living in San Diego. Their wedding at the Grand Tradition Estate had so many beautiful touches including a choreographed first dance, a mini bride and groom, a horse and carriage entrance, a sand ceremony, photos by the lake and a sparkler exit!

We love this wedding so much, it was hard to pick just a few for this blog post! Take a look at their wedding video and photo slideshow for more more more of this sweet military wedding! We especially love the editing style of their video - a little vintage with a lot of sunshine.

Alia + Randy | Falkner Winery Wedding

Tue, May 21 2013 02:52 | Permalink

Alia and Randy are both theatre buffs. They met briefly when Alia was in a production of Godspell with Randy's sister...although Randy doesn't remember. Shortly after they were "coincidently" seated next to each other at an event and really hit it off. 

Their Falkner Winery wedding was a perfect fusion of wine, theatre, family and fun. They incorporated a Wine Ceremony into the wedding and also had two live preformances at the reception. Their day was perfectly planned, they're adorable, and all their guests had an excellent time. Aside from their precious photo shoot amongst the vineyards, our favorite unique elements to their wedding had to be their "premiere poster" engagement photo made to look like a play poster, and the grooms cake bro-mantic cake cutting. Simply adorable.

Here's a little glimpse into their day:

Thank you Alia and Randy for putting your trust in us to capture all the sweet, fun and romantic memories of your wedding day! We are so excited to get you your video!

It seems like their engagement session was just yesterday...time flies so fast! Jeanette and Mark were really lucky. We all crossed our fingers and it miraculously it did not rain in Temecula, even as it poured in parts of San Diego and LA! They had a beautiful sunset ceremony and an incredible party. One of my favorite photos is of Jeanette in the wine barrel room. Only a yoga instructor can bend like that!

Sheena + Joe's Engagement

Fri, Aug 6 2010 01:25 | Permalink

Sheena, Joe, Bob and I had a great time hanging out in La Jolla. The slightly overcast day made for great beach shots! Sheena even braved out the sea wall and narrowly avoided the waves (although Bob and I weren't so lucky).

Lorraine + Alex

Fri, Aug 6 2010 12:48 | Permalink I met Lorraine and Alex at the Bridal Bazaar and when Lorraine told me their story we instantly clicked and we had to work with her! Their photos turned our beautifully and Bob so appreciated being treated like part of the family (because he felt the same way). Thanks to both of you!! We look forward to working with your family again :)

Rachel + Gianni's Engagement

Fri, Aug 6 2010 12:22 | Permalink


Rachel was my college roommate/best friend. When she came down from LA for a visit, we were obviously more than happy to take these pictures for them! Rachel let Bob select Rose Canyon for beautiful nature shots while the wild flowers were still in season. We hung out for a few hours, Gianni carried Rachel across the creek for a quick photo-op and they danced together in the flower fields, making taking their pictures a sinch. I approve :)

May + Gerald's Engagement

Fri, Aug 6 2010 11:14 | Permalink

Downtown offers so many great opportunities for an engagement session. Great architecture, bay views and most of all choices... Steering away from the traditional beach photos, May and Gerald opted for fun and flirty downtown. We started at Petco Park and worked our way to the SD Convention Center before heading to Fred's for some Mexican Food. Thanks May and Gerald :)
