Chelsea + Jonathan | The Lafayette Real Wedding

Wed, Sep 2 2015 11:21 | Permalink
Chelsea & Jonathan are one of the sweetest and most fun loving couples we have had! They truly enjoyed every moment of their wedding day. From the gift of being able to use Jonathan's Dad's Ford Falcon for their photos to the sweetest first look to their fun reception these two had the perfect day!
We love to shoot at The Lafayette because the building itself has such a unique personality.  Tons of old Hollywood history and unique California architecture, it was the perfect fit for the couple.
Check out their plant unity ceremony and cute cake topper!

A unique lego cake topper!

Hilary + Trevor | San Diego LDS Temple & Darlington House Real Wedding

Thu, May 14 2015 03:54 | Permalink

One of San Diego's most beautiful and prominent buildings is the LDS San Diego California Temple.  There is nothing else quite like it, so any time we have the opportunity to use it as a backdrop for our photographs we jump at the opportunity. 

Especially when we have such a beautiful and kind couple like Hilary and Trevor getting married there.

Hilary and Trevor had a beautiful ceremony at the temple and then we joined them for a fun filled reception at the Darlington House in the heart of La Jolla.  These two sure know how to have fun and you can definitely see all of the love they share.  Thanks for sharing your big day with us.

 Pro Tip: Pick your funniest friends to be your groomsmen

Event Planner: Mary Bowerman 
Ceremony Location: San Diego California Temple - LDS
Reception Location: The Darlington House

Some Beautiful Wedding Highlights

Fri, Mar 13 2015 03:17 | Permalink
We publish a lot of different videos for our clients, and in a scramble to keep up we don't always get to share as much as we'd like. Luckily one of our editors created this quick recap video full of examples of videos we've done over the last couple of months.

I think it is a great recap of our work over the past couple of months and specifically shows the fun and pride we take in capturing the irreplaceable moments in a couples lives.

We work with so many cool and charismatic couples and we would love to add you to that list. If you are interested in capturing every moment of your special day let us know and we'll show you exactly what we can do for you.


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!


Wiggin + Jeff | La Jolla Engagement Session

Wed, May 28 2014 03:28 | Permalink

We had a wonderful time taking these  photos with our friends Wiggin & Jeff.  We shot these just down the road from their house at a really wonderful park.

They brought balloons and sparklers and had such great ideas. They are undeniably cute together and it was easy to get great pictures from such a loving couple.

We can't wait to see what they do with their wedding.  I'm sure it's going to melt our hearts.

Holiday Season Photo Shoots

Happy 2012! Now that the holidays have passed I wanted to post some of the holiday card photos we did this season.

Our graphic designer, Christian, and his family do a fun/themed photo session every year. This year they did 1950s Christmas, based off of an old Sears catalog. So creative!

Jen + Scott | Thursday Club Wedding Video Highlight

Fri, Dec 9 2011 11:49 | Permalink Some weddings are such a pleasure to work. I love when it's obvious how much a couple loves each other and when a family comes together so gracefully to celebrate it.

Jen and Scott were married at the Thursday Club in Point Loma. They hired us for Photography long before the big day, but we're quite set on video. I remember emailing with Jen while I was in New York two weeks before their wedding about how to make it work for them. I was SO happy when she told me they had decided to go for it.

Her email this morning made my day: "We LOVE it! And we are sooo happy that everything worked out and we even have a video to remember our wedding day!! Thanks for helping me see we needed one! It is a blessing!"

Some things are just too special not to be documented. Congrats again Mr. & Mrs. Martin

Whitney + Brian | The Dana on Mission Bay

Tue, Aug 23 2011 05:03 | Permalink
Whitney is a friend of mine and I had such a great time wedding planning with her. I'm truthfully a little bit sad that her wedding has passed, but I'm obviously SO happy for them!

Probably within three weeks of their engagement the biggest parts of wedding planning were taken care of. She picked The Dana out of a magazine and she didn't spend too much time making decisions. She told me "when I know I like something, done, NEXT...this is fun," and so only the details were left for the next several months.

For their wedding we did photography, videography and a special surprise "I love you" voice over recording to her parents that Eric (Classy Event Group, DJ) played during her father/daughter dance song.

Thank you Whitney, Brian & family for letting Bob, Tara, Tom, Bryan, Jonathan and me (and Eric of course) play such an important and special role in your wedding day. We love you ;)

Amanda's sister was so cute. She was pretty much over picture taking before the wedding started, so Amanda had to trick her into "helping with her dress" so we could make sure to include her. I love this moment.

I think this picture is hilarious. So many emotions at once!

Wish Upon a Wedding | June 28, 2011 | Destination Events Center

Fri, Jul 15 2011 01:05 | Permalink We invited our intern, Erin, to join us for her first San Diego wedding industry event! It was a great party for a fantastic organization. Here's what she thought of it:

It is true that two people in love should not be deprived from the chance to unite and experience a marriage of a lifetime. This idea is the goal and practice of the non profit organization, Wish Upon A Wedding. Their heart-warming services lend a hand to couples facing tragedy, terminal illness, financial misfortunes, and other life altering circumstances.

On Tuesday evening the organization hosted a mingling event at the gorgeous Destination Events Center in downtown La Jolla. It was a classy atmosphere with captivating flower arrangements, great music, and delicious food, all topped off with a breathtaking sunset.

This occasion  displayed such a powerful message towards helping fulfill the hopes and dreams of soul mates facing unexpected setbacks in life. Throughout the event vendors, designers, florists, DJs, photographers, videographers, editors planners and other industry professionals all expressed their support by volunteering to be wish granters to Wish Upon a Wedding couples in need. The experience and their generosity was very admirable.

Michelle + Travis | The Bahia, William D. Evans

Tue, Jun 21 2011 10:02 | Permalink
Michelle & Travis are high school sweethearts and an adorable couple. Their wedding was held at the Bahia ponds and William D. Evans for the reception. Michelle & Travis met before their beautiful ceremony. For the reception, Michelle told us that she fell in love with the stained glass ceiling of the boat and Travis loved the bar, so we took extra care to incorporate both elements into their photos. The fireworks were a beautiful addition to a wonderful wedding. It was quite fairytale-like to watch them.
