Just like a Dream | Photo of the Week

By, November 24, 2017

Assuming the wedding day timeline allows, it’s nice to set aside time for sunset photos! Whether your wedding is in the mountains, the city, or the coast (as below), the quality of light can be very nice as the sun goes down. Here’s an epic sunset shot from Amanda and Kyle’s big day, and our Photo of the Week.Candid photo of a wedding couple at sunset

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! | Bridesmaid Inspiration

By, May 03, 2016

Ladies, let’s be honest – the wedding day is a great excuse to hang out with your BFFs. With champagne flowing, music playing, and your girls decked out in their finest, there is nothing left to do but celebrate. It’s a perfect occasion to let loose, share a laugh, and enjoy the results of your planning.

As a bonus, there’s also that whole “getting married” thing :) Right now, though, it’s all about the ladies.

On the wedding day, we suggest starting the photography coverage early, before you change into your wedding dress. It’s fun to have images captured while you are relaxing with your bridal party, with the final touches of make-up being applied. This is a time for us to get creative, shoot details and candids, and capture the excitement in the room. Whether your crew is sophisticated, boisterous, or all-out silly, we’ll be there to create unforgettable images.

We hope you enjoy these recent bride and bridesmaid inspiration photos :)

Bridesmaids and Bride toss wedding bouquets up in air

While getting ready, Courtney’s bridesmaids surprised her with impromptu pillow fight (below), and we captured her priceless reaction.

Before getting dressed up, Jaclyn and her ladies couldn’t resist a little taste of Del Taco (below). Still in her pre-bridal wardrobe, Jaclyn made sure to not get any hot sauce on her dress for her wedding day at Longshadow Ranch Vineyard and Winery.

During Brooke and Matt’s wedding at Rancho Valencia, we noticed an empty golf cart near Brooke’s room, and had the ladies hop in for a fun cruise around the venue (below). We are constantly keeping an eye out for unique photo opportunities, and ways to to transform everyday items into creative props.

Another great benefit to having your ladies helping out before the ceremony are fun moments like the one above, taken during Katie and Gene’s wedding at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club. As Katie stepped into her dress, we had her bridesmaids hold up a mirror for a grand reveal. We love the ecstatic, candid smiles of Katie and her girls, and the genuine reactions all around.

Let guests know who your bridesmaids are!  At Mariam and Farhad’s Wedding at Maderas Golf Club, Mariam’s bridesmaids rocked yellow sunglasses, which were gifted to them to match their wedding attire (below). By gifting your ladies with colorful robes or matching glasses, your squad will rule the day in style.

For their grand entrance during Shannan and Mathias’ wedding at Beverly Mansion (above left), the bridesmaids had a little surprise up their sleeves. Serenading the crowd with air guitar skills, the ladies brought out their inner rock stars, and kicked off the party in high gear.

Thursday Club Wedding | Christina and Donald

By, April 20, 2016

Christina and Donald tied the knot at The Thursday Club, a Spanish-style clubhouse located in Point Loma. This venue, originally built in 1927, features historic details inside, such as stained glass windows and immaculate hardwood floors. Outside, there are rolling green lawns, immaculate gardens, and pristine ocean views. The location was made even more amazing by Seven Stems, who filled the day with greens, blues, succulents, and splashes of pink flowers. It was a beautiful wedding for this fun couple, who planned the entire event from out of town.

As you can tell from the photos below, Donald is a Military man. For our clients serving in the armed forces, our studio offers a special discount. It is important to know why we are offering this discount. It is 100% to show our thanks and support for the sacrifices that they make to ensure our safety.
