Courthouse Wedding in San Diego

This Courthouse Marriage turned Intimate Wedding is definitely the way to go to celebrate an easy and fun Wedding Day!

All you need is love is so true! I’m constantly reminded how important Love is with each and every couple that I meet. Somehow I have managed to meet the most beautiful and loving couples that are truly the best people. You know, those people you are referring to whenever you say there are still good people out there? Not only did this couple show me what true love is but so did their amazing group of close family and friends!

These newlyweds met me over coffee and thats when their story unfolded. Having been through so much in their lives, the found each other and knew pretty quickly it was the real deal.

There are so many different ways to celebrate non-traditional marriages these days. How do you know which is right for you? The main thing that I believe it comes down to, is asking yourself, what is the most important to you on your Wedding Day? I’ll go more into that here.

Just because you may be having a quick wedding, doesn’t mean that you have to go solo at it, or should i say as a duet. An outdoor marriage for your San Diego Civil Marriage Ceremony at the San Diego County Administration Center with a Harbor front view is a beautiful location that is perfect for your family and friends to join in on. You have two options: indoor or outdoor wedding. If I can stress one thing, do the outdoor ceremony. I don’t care if there is rain, June Gloom, snow, wind, or white walkers are on their way. The indoor location is so sad, there is no question that crazy weather would be worth it. Your friends and family can stand together and watch the two of you start your lives together, the photographer is able to get some beautiful photos, and then you have time to have your first photoshoot together as a married couple in a beautiful and historical location!

Check out the photo story of their intimate elopement here:

Wreck The Dress

My San Diego Wreck The Dress Sessions have come to be my favorite part as a Wedding Photographer!

They take place well after all the stress of the Wedding Day is over but just before the Honeymoon Glow has faded. It gives you, the still excited former bride, the chance to throw that beautiful dress back on and have some fun with it! These Wreck The Dress Sessions are pure fun and excitement. By now, you are a pro in front of the lens and you are fully enjoying the moment, feeling silly in your wedding gown and dancing around like one of those music box ballerinas you had as a little child.

Being a photographer on the Coast in San Diego, tends to attract former brides to beach locations where we can slowly get that dress wet and jump around in the water like a 4 year-old! As the sun sets, we get some more creative shots and are able to roll around in the shallow water. During the Spring, we get lots of flowers in the area and during the Winter, we are able to head out to Mt. Laguna and get some fun pictures in the snow. 

This San Diego Wedding / Wreck The Dress was the very first one I did upon moving to San Diego. Actually, it was my very first professional beach session ever. I was slightly nervous at first but realized, its one of the easiest locations and best spent not using an on camera flash. Natural lighting in these following portraits, along with her rad-self of course, is what made each and every part of this golden hour magical! This is now my favorite shoot of all time! Have a look!
