San Diego Wedding Photographer

Recently, I was overjoyed to have been found by a wonderful couple from out of town. I knew as soon as I heard their voices over the phone that they would be awesome to work with! Destination Weddings are becoming more and more popular, especially here in San Diego and Southern California. For several years, soon-to-be newlyweds have been upping the game. Elopements are taking couples and wedding photographers to new locations and requiring adventurous journeys to get there.

The first time we met we both traveled to Palm Springs where we took beautiful engagement photos. A few months later, their wedding brought us back to the same location! Palm Springs is such an amazing place to be married and capture both engagement and wedding photos. Within a small area, you have desert, sand dunes, mountains, and meadows.

We started at a wonderful venue in a Catholic Church that was extremely accommodating. From there, I piled on some warm clothes, grabbed the Photography Permit for the top of Mt. San Jacinto and we headed towards the Aerial Tramway. We had quite a bit of snow and the largest crowd ever to deal with so we only managed to grab a few photos in our time frame, but I will say, they were perfection and I can’t wait to get back to the mountain! Here are some photos from their wonderful, blessed day!

...and as you’ll learn, I’m definitely obsessed with wedding cake! Tell me your favorite kind of cake in the comments section!? Mine is this vanilla soaked cake from Freed’s Bakery in Las Vegas!

San Diego Dance Portraits

San Diego Portrait Photographer

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with a beautiful young woman who wasn’t afraid to be herself and revisit a part of her childhood that she hadn’t visited in years. This is exactly what I want for my “Feel Beautiful” Portrait Sessions. I was determined to do something different for this Portrait Session and rather than have a typical portrait session for dancers on the beach here in San Diego, I wanted a unique location that required a bit of a travel journey and could provide a gorgeous backdrop! Styling was fairly simple as Valentines Day was coming up and since it involved ballet, a tutu of some sort seemed mandatory. Hair and makeup was natural and easy to accomplish. Here are a few dance pictures from the afternoon.

Initially, I had a vision of a beautiful mountaintop location with peaks and an amazing sunset in the background but after walking upon this field I knew that a hike to the top wasn’t going to be needed. When i first saw this field, I knew the dead bushes and grass would be a fascinating paradox to a beautiful, bold, and lively ballerina. The brown tones were the backdrop that I knew would enhance her outfit and not distract from her beautiful ballet moves. I was lucky enough to be able to use this location just northeast of San Diego in Poway, California. 

It was amazing that she hadn’t practiced or done any of these ballet moves in quite sometime and yet she managed to look like a pro and reconnect with that part of her past. It was so inspiring to see and imagine this grown young woman as a child dancing around on a stage with all the confidence and strength a young girl can have.

 

What other locations would you like to see me take ballet portraits at?

From The Beginning…

Hi! I’m so happy that you have found me and my beautiful Muses featured on my site. I started blogging back in 2007 while I was in fashion school in Italy. I wanted to share my journey of applying to a foreign school and how to do it to help others (it took over a year to do all of the paperwork!). The response was so great that I kept on writing and telling my story through my journey, and many adventures - along with the challenges of studying in a foreign language and completely changing my life. It helped me to get some Press when I was studying in London at Central Saint Martins and then after 9 years I gave it up to just focus on photography. Now I am back and ready to share your Story of Love in a complimentary format.

I want to fill in those gaps between the shots and help others know what to expect in their Photographic Journey. I literally wake up everyday because I want people to feel beautiful, (and also because espresso gets me going). Photography, isn't just about taking a photograph, it's about finding yourself as well - even though you may not realize it yet! It's a Journey...and it's like they say, a photograph can say a thousand words - and they will! I hope these Stories will inspire you and help you connect with other beautiful souls who have invited me into their lives. I am so happy that I get to create beautiful images and experiences every. single. day.


A little about me…

I have a shameful addiction to espresso and if I could do anything, it would be to travel and photograph the world -oh wait, I'm already doing that! ;) I love storytelling in any form and I can knit a blanket allllmost as fast as your Grandmother. I travel back and forth between San Diego and las vegas as i feel both are my home now. I wake up everyday to serve my couples and families because they become my extended family. Life is so beautiful and precious and I want you to feel that beauty and celebrate those connections. Location, planning, and lots of love - everything comes together and I live to create magic so that you everyone can celebrate their narratives for years to come!
