The Westgate Hotel

By, December 11, 2017

Highlights of the Westgate Hotel

This luxury hotel is a tribute to the anteroom in the Palace of Versailles. The Grand Lobby is noted for its magnificent antiques, crystal chandeliers, and Persian carpets. The hotel is located right in the heart of San Diego, and has plenty to offer in terms of wedding photography, as you will see below.

Both the lobby and the mezzanine level of the hotel are ornately decorated, and joined by a fancy winding staircase. They are the perfect setting for fairytale-like wedding photos. There is an abundance of natural light coming through the elegantly draped windows, and plenty of classic furniture to use as props.

Right next to the lobby and adjacent to the grand staircase is this beautiful hidden gem (below). It serves as a hospitality room for the hotel guests but also the ideal spot for few colorful portraits on your wedding day.

The 3rd floor of the hotel also has a lot to offer, including nice views of downtown San Diego. There is a large open outdoor space with beautiful plants and fountains that can be ideal for an outdoor wedding.

It also great to venture out onto the streets surounding the Hotel. Just a stone throw away are many great urban photo opportunities like the trolley tracks and the spreckles theater to name a few. Also, kitty corner to the Westgate is is the newly invigorated Horton Plaza Park which also has some unforgettable photo locales!

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

To the Moon and Back | Photo of the Week

By, November 17, 2017

During Anna Marie and Scott’s wedding reception, we noticed the full moon rise above San Diego. We knew we had to pull these two out for a couple photo, and they were more than happy to oblige! To achieve this shot, we used a telephoto lens and external lighting, and the result was this stunning image. Enjoy our Photo of the Week :)Moonlight night shot
