Highlights of The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina

The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is nestled between Downtown San Diego, Seaport Village and San Diego Bay. The Marriott itself is a tropical inspired venue, landscaped with palm trees, ferns and waterfalls, against the backdrop of an urban jungle. Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina combines luxury and modern elegance with professional hosts and excellent services. The chic interior design combined with the proximity of the outdoor landmarks will leave no shortage of interesting settings for portraits.

By moving closer to the edge of the rooftop, the trees and the pool of the Children's Garden are revealed, adding more to visual elements.
Bride looking out of large window
Lined with grand windows, the lobby is has a sophisticated feel. We made sure to showcase nice detail of the outside skyline/palms of downtown San Diego, as well indoors of Emilee as she admired the view.
Newlyweds sit seperately
On level 1 of the South Tower, is a snazzy lounge area. We used the area to shoot wide, allowing separation between the couple for a stylish portrait of the two of them in this image.
Groom downtown
Upon the entrance of the party tent, The Coronado Terrace gives access to a rooftop, which we used to isolate the the city buildings neighboringu00a0the Gaslamp Quarter and cloudy skies for a more urban feel.
Groom getting his jacket fixed
Along the parking lot entrance is a wall garnished with vines. We cropped for plenty of head room so show the grandness of the wall and the diamond design trimmed into the vines.
Groomsmen on cloudy day
The Coronado Terrace possess little traffic for distraction free backgrounds, big sky views and features beautiful reflections along the spectacular structure of the Marriott's south tower.
Bridal party wearing cobalt dress
By continuing up the path from the diamond vine wall to the side of the Convention Center, we reached a window to gather Aileen and Jerry with their wedding party.
Bride and groom in front of waterfall
Rather than showing off the cool architecture, in this image we used a long lens to soften the background. Our goal was showcase the couple in a more natural environment.
Newlyweds touch noses
The walls of the fitness center are made of a back lit, frost like glass giving evidence of activity behind them with contrast to the focus on what lies in front of the walls. We placed Marion and Geno in front of the walls to give the feeling that they are in a world of their own where time stands still.
Large group of groomsmen
With this large group of groomsmen, we used the broad windows and wide space that the North Tower offers.

We continued on in the lounge area for this bridal party of 19, using the furniture to stagger the height of the couples.

We used the awning of the entryway for the Coronado Terrace to hang the brides dress against the reflection of cloudy skies.
Neutral colors and modern elements play a theme throughout the interior of the hotel. We placed the happy couple in the lobby elevator of the South Tower and captured the moment as the doors were closing. We highlighted the groom with a solo portrait in front of the wall of lights that lead to the elevator.
The stairways, accessed in between the two towers, have a clean, high key design and are almost monochromatic.u00a0(image left) u00a0The stairs are also brightly lit, as they are directly against floor to ceiling windows. Just before entering the lobby doors, to the left is a shell colored, textured tile wall that contrasts the the black reflective pathway it stands on.

Bridal party have fun on carrousel
Settled in the north point of Seaport Village's shops is Looff Carousel, where we like to show a our subjects a good time, with our camera's ready to catch the action of course.
Couple standing on footbridge.
The Harbor House, a restaurant off of Kettner blvd., that sits upon a pond with a rustic footbridge. We photographed wide for this environment to create an image that appears to be a world away from the bay that is just on the other side.
Bride and groom eat sweets
We like to incorporate a couple's interests into their photos, so the Fudge Factory is the perfect place to lead a couple with a sweet tooth and adds vibrant color to their portfolio.
Couple holding hands on docks
The Tuna Harbor Dockside Market plays host to lobster cages. We love the idea of using this achieve an background that is different and interesting.
For Ruby and Shaun, we placed them so they are surrounded by the graphic pattern created by the steps of the Convention Center's north building.

Downtown is less than a hop, skip and jump away, offering an urban balance to the waterfront environment.
Downtown San Diego Engagement

For a lush green setting, such as in Hannah and Wesley's engagement photos, there is a community garden along the trolley tracks, just past Front Street.
