Memorial Day | Love and Valor

By, May 30, 2016

The military presence runs deep here in San Diego, and many of us come from families with military backgrounds. We greatly appreciate all the hard work and sacrifice made by the brave men and women who serve our country, and love photographing weddings for active and retired service members. To pay tribute to our local servicemen from the Army, Airforce, Navy and Marines, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite moments from military weddings throughout the year.

During Boo and Michael’s wedding at The Westin San Diego (above left), our photographers arrived early, and discovered this American flag mural on a nearby building. We were amazed by the striking visual of Michael’s clean white uniform set against the patriotic hues of the flag.

After Ayami and Bryan’s ceremony (above left), the new couple made their way through the Arch of Swords. As a comical “welcome to the military” gesture, officers gently swatted at Ayami’s behind. Her candid reaction to the moment speaks volumes! We love freezing moments like these filled with genuine emotion.

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. It is for their loyalty, dedication and commitment to this country, giving us the ability and freedom to do what we love. We all ‘True’-ly thank you for your service. It means so much.

Here are some highlights from the day…

We love the various styles and shades of these bridesmaids dresses, especially when paired with these elegant florals.

Celebrating a U.S. Military Tradition | The Arch of Swords | May 17, 2013

By, May 17, 2013

The Arch of Swords is a time-honored tradition for U.S. Military couples. It is a symbolic pledge of loyalty to the newly married couple. When Erin and Danny were recently married at The Immaculata, a Catholic chapel on the University of San Diego campus, it was perfectly fitting that a formal Arch of Swords be incorporated into the recessional.

We saw this image of our bride and groom, sharing a kiss under the arch, and knew it had to be our Photo of the Week. The bridal couple is simply stunning, as is the beauty and elegance of The Immaculata, pictured in the background. What a timeless moment!
