Oh Baby! | At Home with a Newborn

By, November 15, 2017

There’s nothing like having a newborn at home! During a newborn photo session, our goal is to capture the joy and emotions of your newly expanded family. We focus on capturing images that preserve intimate moments, such as the special way mom holds her baby, the pride in dad’s eyes, and the interaction between loving parents. Who knew such a small little person could impact your life so much?

Staring at Baby
We capture images from a unique perspective to add interest, and to engage the viewer in the photograph.
Tiny Feet
We use scale to show just how small your newborn is, for such an important person!
Royal Baby
Mom and Dad adore baby
Newborn Smile
Baby and parents in the nursery
To remain unobtrusive, and to show your daily life during this time period, we typically make use of natural light.

We photograph your newborn where they will be most comfortable, such as in a nursery or crib.

We book newborn photo shoots throughout San Diego! To see more, check out full galleries of newborn portrait photography or schedule a newborn photo session for your own family!

We’ve Got Dancing Covered! | Open Dance Photos

By, August 25, 2017

A lot can happen during the reception, especially on the dance floor! That’s why we advise having us stick around after the traditional stuff (aka speeches, cake cutting, etc) is finished. But how much open dancing coverage do you really need? Probably a lot less than you might think, when you hire the right photographer. By having us there for 20 minutes of open dancing, it will result in photos that make it look like we were there all night :)

The key to getting a lot of great dance photos, in a short period of time, is to get everyone on their feet right away. To accomplish this, ask the DJ to request that everyone hit the dance floor for a song or two. Maybe start with a big group photo, then immediately after the picture, ensure that the DJ puts on the perfect crowd pleaser song. Get that dance floor packed, and in 20 minutes, we will get the spirit of the room covered!

To illustrate our point, here are examples of photographs captured within the first 20 minutes of dance coverage:

Guests and couple having a great time dancing on the dance floor
At Jenn and Nick's wedding, we used a wide angle lens, showing the happy couple celebrating on the dance floor with their guests.

We always grab some shots of the VIPs having a blast!

This happy guy hitched a ride on his dad's shoulders to get a bird's eye view of the festivities.
Wide shot of a full dance floor
To show the full scope of the party, we raised the camera above the crowd, and made use of a wide angle lens. This provided an expanded view of the dance floor, and preserved all the action occurring in the moment.

At Ryann and Manuel's wedding, while most of the focus was on the center of the dance floor, we turned the camera around to capture the action on the perimeter. In doing so, we got this great shot of a groomsman dancing to amuse Manuel's mother.
Group of guests smile for the camera
By asking guests to get together and smile for the camera, we can get great group portraits during the open dancing. We even welcome the occasional photo bomber in the background.

As the party escalates, your dedicated vendors are working hard, and making sure that everything is awesome!
Group of guests having a great time dancing
By raising above the crowd, we were able to capture this unique perspective shot.

In some situations, off-camera lighting can give images a dynamic look, which goes perfectly with fun dancing photos.

As wedding photographers, one of our favorite moments occurs right after the ceremony ends. This is the point where months of planning have become reality, vows have been exchanged, and you are officially newlyweds! We make sure to capture the first few seconds of married life, so you can always look back and remember how you felt. Whether your style is to cheer, strut, or high-five, we say take your moment… you’ve earned it :)

Because it’s almost the weekend, we put together a collection of our favorite recent “moment of celebration” photos. Enjoy!
