Bahia Hotel Wedding | Alaina and Stephen

By, January 24, 2017

Alaina and Stephen recently held their wedding at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay. We loved Alaina and Stephen’s fun personalities, and had a blast scouting locations that complemented their playful spirits. We hope you enjoy our selection of images from their special day!

A Furry Best Man | Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding | Lydia and Olin

By, May 31, 2013

Here at True Photography, we love our pets as family. We even call one very special dachshund a member of our team. So when we saw this image of “Fuzz” the Goldendoodle, we knew it had to be our Photo of the Week!

Fuzz took part in the wedding of Lydia and Olin, who were recently married at the Scripps Seaside Forum. He had a huge responsibility on the wedding day, with a custom embroidered bandana to prove it.  What did it say? “Best Dog,” of course!

10 Wedding Trends We’ve Captured on Camera

By, May 13, 2011

There’s no doubt that weddings are becoming more personalized and detail-oriented than ever. We’ve recognized a number of awesome trends that have started to catch on, and we’ve rounded them up to share with you.

1. PET PARTICIPATION – When your pets are well behaved and can handle wearing even the smallest amount of wedding apparel, how can you not involve them in your ceremony? Here are a few photos of our brides and grooms including their “pups in the nups.”

2. FUN BRIDAL FOOTWEAR – Brides are choosing to wear a fun pair of shoes underneath the wedding dress to show off their personal styles. From flats, to bright colors and sparkles, to five-inch red-soled Christian Louboutin pumps, these eclectic shoe choices have sure made for great detail photos!

3. COMFORT FOOD IN TINY GLASSES – “Individual” is definitely a trendy word in food presentation. Delicious food items served in miniature mugs or votive holders are becoming fun additions to desert tables and cocktail hours.

4. MIX-MATCHED BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES  – Mixing it up can be exciting! As weddings are getting more personalized, some brides have their bridesmaids wear different colors and shapes that compliment them, while playing off each individual style.

5. PARASOL ACCESSORIES – Rain or shine, umbrellas are in. We’ve seen them used as decor along the aisle, as accessories for the bridesmaids, and of course, as weather protection for the guests!

6. CANDY TABLES – More and more brides and grooms are incorporating self-serve candy bars at the reception. Guests think it’s “pretty sweet.”

7. SHORT WEDDING GOWNS – Especially in beach-themed weddings, some brides are opting for short dresses that not only fit the occasion, but also show off their tans!

8. FASHIONABLE WEDDING PARTY JEWELRY – We’ve seen lots of bridesmaids incorporate less traditional pieces, such as bold and chunky jewelry, to compliment their dresses.

9. PERSONALIZED DETAILS – From stir sticks, to water bottles, to dance floor decals, those little personal touches are popping up everywhere.

10. STYLISH TRANSPORTATION – We’ve photographed newlyweds taking off  in some unique and classy rides after tying the knot.
