Founders Chapel is a house of worship located on the University of San Diego campus. Dating back to 1953, the chapel was built for what was then the San Diego College for Women. Today, it is a popular ceremony location, and is exclusive to USD students, alumni and staff. We love photographing at this classical and traditional site, and incorporating the venue’s details into memorable ceremony photographs.
Having two photographers means being able to document ceremony moments from multiple perspectives, as in the photos above.
The broad and open space of the venue allows us to capture unique vantage points, like the one below.
To capture unexpected point-of-view images, we look for opportunities such as the balcony, which has railings and gates that can be photographed through.
The interior and exterior archways add drama and symmetry, which helps to create elegantly composed images, like the ones below.
For creative couple portraits, we love making use of the surrounding campus areas, in addition to the ceremony space.
Whenever weather permits, the lush green campus lends itself to a nice variety of outdoor photo backdrops.
