San Diego Wedding

San Diego Wedding Photography

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 during an Engagement Session in the desert. It was really hot but we managed to get quite a bit of the Session finished before we hit 100 degrees and called it a day. A few months later, their wedding brought us back to the same location and we were able to explore something a bit more rocky and cooler in Palm Springs. This city 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 the day at a wonderful venue in a Catholic Church that was extremely accommodating. It was gorgeous and had Old Spanish Mission vibes. It is such a unique little church in the middle of downtown Palm Springs. After that, we packed into some cars and headed a few blocks to the couples portrait session location. We piled on some warm clothes, grabbed the Photography Permit for the top of Mt. San Jacinto and headed towards the Palm Springs 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!

The reception was held a short drive away in a little town next Palm Springs. The Venue continued on with the old Spanish Vibes. If you’re looking for a great Wedding or Reception Venue, check out this beautiful spot in Indian Wells.

...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!

WIth Lots of Love and Good Vibes,
