A simply perfect Paradise Point wedding with lush gardens and a waterfront ceremony

By, April 29, 2011

This active and fun-loving couple chose San Diego’s Paradise Point resort for their destination wedding. Chrissy and Tanr’s wedding was a great example of how simplicity can be overwhelmingly stunning. By replacing traditional wedding decor and bouquets was a bay view, palm trees, and a lush garden, their celebration became a natural, intimate and romantic occasion. The photos captured the vibe of their wedding day, which was a complete reflection of their cool and collected attitudes.

We asked Chrissy how she would describe her relationship with Tan’r in only five words.  She responded with the following:

SIMPLE. Passionate. True. Committed. Positive.

Our wedding was incredibly simple, therefore giving a very relaxed, easy going vibe. It was a destination wedding with only family members as guests. We wanted everyone to be able to relax and have a vacation. There wasn’t really a single moment that stood out because each and every moment was truly amazing. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted… a beautiful location with all of our family, good food and good drinks!

Our favorite photo is the one where I am in warrior pose and Tan’r is really doing a flying kick through the air! It is brilliant! We always get asked if it is fake.

Our experience with True Photography was absolutely AMAZING!! You guys truly captured our personalities and let us be creative with our photos. Aaron took the most incredible shots and helped us take our ideas to the next level. He helped bring out our personalities so the photos are REAL… (no stiff awkward ones!) I never dreamt that our wedding photos would turn out to be so amazing. The experience was simple and fun, yet our photos turned out extraordinary. I’m so grateful for the time and effort True Photography put in to capturing our wedding.

Romantic Wedding Celebration at the Seaside Forum

By, April 19, 2011

We caught up with Emily to recap her wedding to Paul at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in downtown San Diego. They followed  up the ceremony with a contemporary reception at the Scripps Forum. Check out a few of the images we captured of the gorgeous couple, and see what Emily had to say about their big day:

Meghan of True Photography: Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions about your wedding for our blog! I’m interested to know what was most important to you and Paul when planning your wedding?

Emily (Bride): We didn’t want our wedding to feel “typical” or manufactured. We wanted the focus to remain on marriage, the whole purpose of the day, and not to get lost on all the things that become insignificant once the event is over, like party favors and material things.

San Diego Wedding Photographer: True Photography captures beautiful bride and groom after ceremony


Meghan of True Photography: If you had to choose, what would you say was your most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Emily (Bride): Being at the altar. Ironically, that was when were all alone, just the two of us, up there with the priest. It was really surreal and special. All the hand squeezes and sideways glances that no one else could see or know about. That is special and still stands out to me.



Meghan of True Photography: You were such a beautiful bride and we absolutely loved photographing you and Paul. Can you tell us what your experience was like working with True Photography?

Emily (Bride): True Photography was great. If I could describe the experience I would say “easy and efficient”. We wanted to be able to enjoy a little bit of the cocktail hour with our guests, and Mike made that happen, without sacrificing photos we wanted. The pictures truly captured the essence of the event.
