A Tranquil Summertime Engagement Photo Shoot at Sunset Cliffs | Lacy and Phil

By, July 11, 2013

Lacy and Phil are planning a very intimate wedding in front of the Hotel Del in Coronado, on the sand. In anticipation of their fall wedding, they opted for a beach engagement session at Sunset Cliffs, near Point Loma. We love Sunset Cliffs because of the variety of environments nearby. From lush woody pathways, to patches of desert succulents, to golden fields and rugged coastal cliffs — you can find it all!

During the shoot, we stumbled across a colorfully tagged wall. There was an old bottle of spray paint nearby, which we couldn’t resist using as an impromptu prop. Found objects like these are always fun to work with!

Also, the soon-to-be-weds had a chance to show off their muscles. First, Phil attempted to climb the cliff in his sandals, while hanging onto a rope. So Lacy upped the ante and pulled off the acrobatic “flag” move against a gnarled tree. Pretty impressive!

This Southern California couple was the epitome of relaxed, and we had a blast capturing them during their date at the beach. Take a look below at some of our favorite images from this tranquil engagement shoot. We look forward to photographing this happy couple come October!



Walking Down the Aisle | Military Inspired Wedding in San Diego | May 3, 2013

By, May 03, 2013

This Friday, our Photo of the Week comes from Chandler and Bradford’s wedding, held at the Ultimate Skybox in downtown San Diego. As troops were lining up for Air Force Recognition Day at PETCO Park, they also took part in our photo shoot! Because of Bradford’s status as a Submarine Officer in the US Navy, the military presence held special significance for our wedding couple.

Getting dozens of people to line up while keeping a straight face is no easy feat, but everyone involved pulled it off without hesitation. It was a beautiful moment, capturing the newlyweds as they walked through the formation of Air Force troops. We absolutely love this shot!

A View of San Diego | Wedding at The University Club | February 22, 2013

By, February 22, 2013

For our Photo of the Week, we bring you this gorgeous overhead image of San Diego. It was captured at Lindsey and Case’s wedding at The Univeristy Club. Fun fact: The University Club sits in the penthouse of San Diego’s second-tallest skyscraper, Symphony Towers, which is just a foot shorter than the One America Plaza building!

This photo captures many iconic San Diego landmarks, including the Bay, the Coronado Bridge and the white “sails” of the Convention Center.  If you look closely, you can see the hills of Tijuana, Mexico along the horizon, and the dome of the future (currently under construction) new Central Library.

Down the center of the photo is 8th Avenue, which takes your eye straight to home plate at Petco Park. And directly in front of the Symphony Towers, you can see the CHASE Bank building, home to San Diego’s Exquisite Weddings Magazine! What other San Diego landmarks can you spot in this photo?
