A San Diego Military Wedding with True Photography

By, June 20, 2020

We love to photograph weddings for our San Diego military couples and families! A military wedding often incorporates symbols like gold medallions, and traditions such as sword cake-cuttings, that make the occasion distinctive.  Also, there is something about a bride or groom in uniform that adds to the emotion of the day. 

In honor of our country’s military personnel, True Photography proudly offers a 10% military discount on wedding photography to brides and grooms who have served our country. This ongoing promotion is extended to veterans as well as active duty personnel. Please visit our pricing section for more information.

Here are a few of our favorite images from the military weddings we’ve recently photographed. We’d love to hear which image is your favorite!

Getting the Perfect Exposure | Boudoir Photography

By, December 23, 2019

In recent years, there has been a growing popularity for more innovative and stylized boudoir photography. We have found that many woman are doing boudoir photo shoots not just as a gift for their significant other, but for themselves. It is a great way to be able to look back and remember that time of life when you had that oh la la ;) We have many cool locations in mind to help inspire the background for the photograph.  As well, we can photograph in the comfort of your home, or even a cool hotel room that has nice staging to work with. We are open to shaking things up a bit, and can plan a shoot in an unexpected environment, like a forest or a warehouse.

Our photographers know how to pose individual body types in the most flattering ways. It is important that we look at you specifically to bring out your best angles. We also include professional post-production to give our clients a sophisticated and polished look. The result will be some of the best portraits of yourself that you will ever see!

Take a peek at some of our recent favorites ;)

Planning the Ceremony | Wedding Tips

By, December 31, 2017

When planning the wedding ceremony, one big decision is, “What time should we start?” Because the ceremony time dictates the schedule for the rest of the day, there are several factors to consider.

1. Sunset. Sunset time is one of the most important things to consider! As a general rule, the ceremony should start well before sunset, and end at least one hour before the sun goes down. This ensures that you will still have quality light after the ceremony, which is important for romantic portraits together, as well as family photos.

2. Reception. Length of the reception is another thing to consider. An earlier ceremony start time gives room for a nice long party afterwards :) You’ll want to leave plenty of time to accommodate dinner, dancing, and any other traditions/event you want to include.

3. Venue Rules. Most venues have a mandatory end time. Your venue may also have a strict ceremony time. If your venue’s required ceremony window is less than one hour before sunset, you might want to consider doing a “first look.” This will allow the majority of the couple’s portraits and wedding party photos to be done before the ceremony, and ensure that you have beautiful photos in the best available light.

If you have specific questions about your wedding ceremony, and how it will pertain to your photography timeline, please feel free to contact us!
