Life Imitates Art | Photo of the Week

By, April 29, 2016

Here in San Diego, we are fortunate to have a selection of world-class museums within driving distance. Many of these museums also double as eclectic and distinctive wedding venues. For example, the Contemporary Museum of Art in La Jolla is a standout wedding location, with its abundance of artistic backgrounds, modern aesthetic, and edgy design. Whenever we photograph here, we like to incorporate the museum’s vibrance into the wedding day photos as much as possible.

In preparation for Vanessa and Len’s wedding, we discovered this unique, modern wall of the Museum tucked away in a corner of the reception. As you’ll see in the photo below, we framed the lines around our couple, and added a single backlight of flash for contrast. This added drama and intensity to a quiet and intimate moment, and resulted in our Photo of the Week :)

Balboa Park Engagement Photo Shoot

By, December 27, 2014

Balboa Park, a beloved San Diego institution, is one of the nation’s oldest public parks. We love photographing engagement shoots there because everything is within walking distance. This means we are able to accomplish more pictures and greater variety within a shorter time period. We’ve been photographing in Balboa Park for years and know every nook and cranny that it has to offer. A Balboa Park engagement photo shoot always results in a nice mix of timeless shots and fun images.

Many of us are long time (or lifelong) San Diegans, and nothing says San Diego quite like Balboa Park. Some of our favorite landmarks to incorporate into engagement photo shoots are the stately Museum of Man entrance, the tranquil koi pond, and the classic organ pavilion. There is natural beauty all around too, with many diverse locations in walking distance. We even have our own secret spots to photograph :) For all of these reasons, Balboa Park is an ideal outdoor photo shoot location.

To arrange your own Balboa Park engagement shoot, feel free to contact us. For inspiration, please enjoy recent engagement photos we captured in and around the park.

A Priceless Collection of Museum Weddings

Looking for a unique location for your wedding? When used as a wedding venue, a museum can be even more exciting than a school field trip ever was :) And you don’t have to stand in a single file line! There are all kinds of museums that offer wedding packages, including art centers, aquariums, and sculpture gardens. For example, the San Diego area alone has venues as diverse as the Museum of Contemporary Art La Jolla, Birch Aquarium at Scripps, and the San Diego Museum of Art. Whether your taste is classic or contemporary, there is sure to be a museum to match :)
