At True Photography, we love it whenever we photograph a San Diego military wedding. This is because we have the utmost respect and appreciation for the brave men and women in our armed forces. We consider it to be an honor and privilege to be a military photographer of choice. This is how we have come to photograph so many wonderful San Diego couples. In fact, we have been photographing military weddings since our company began. Ever since our inception, many of our clients have been active or retired military. This being San Diego, a majority of these couples are associated with the Marines or Navy. Rest assured, though, that we also photograph for the Army, Coast Guard, Air Force, and all other types of military units.
San Diego Military Weddings Portfolio
As you will see in our portfolio, we are showcasing extensive collection of military weddings. Each gallery represents a recent military wedding photographed by our studio.While we have a defined style and approach, we tailor the photography to the specifics of the wedding day. You are welcome to browse through all these galleries! Also, we invite you to use them as inspiration for your own wedding photography.
If you like a particular shot, venue, or mood, be sure to let us know. This way, we can start planning the ideas for your own wedding. For example, let's say there is a specific series of photos of groomsmen before the ceremony, that resonates with you. Instead of looking to recreate those photos exactly, we'll talk about what you like most about them. This way, we can brainstorm from a creative perspective. The end result is that we will come up with something unique and specific to you.
How Military Wedding Couples Find Us
In getting to know our military couples, we always ask how they came across our studio. Many times, they saw an image or portfolio gallery online and decided to contact us. Other clients were referred by someone they are enlisted with, and who booked our studio for their own wedding. And in other cases, they were referred by their coordinator or wedding venue. Regardless of how couples find us, we are happy that the word is out! It means a lot to us that the San Diego military community refers us, in addition to vendors we work with.
Specifics of San Diego Military Weddings
Like civilian weddings, every military wedding is different. This is why we offer a wide range of customization within your photography and videography package. We also work to structure the day around the coverage that is most important to you. For example, let's say someone will be wearing a military dress uniform to the wedding. If this is the case, we make sure to capture artistic photographs of the uniform itself, on its own. This pays tribute to the symbolism and significance of the occasion. If there will be formal presentations throughout the day, such as a procession or saber arch, we'll want to know this in advance. This way, we can begin thinking through creative ways of photographing the moment. Of course, there will also be plenty of room for candids and "in the moment" photography during the military wedding day. You'll receive a nice mix!
Booking a Military Wedding Photographer
Let's say you are having a large wedding, as many military weddings are. Or, perhaps you would like more thorough coverage. If this is the case, you'll want to book two wedding photographers. This way, our photography specialists can work together as a team throughout the day. They can also split up when it makes the most sense, such as each photographer capturing one side of the wedding party. While one photographer is taking pictures of the groomsmen with their favorite cigars, the other can be setting up a stylized shot with the bridesmaids. Or vice versa! Or, if your wedding is small and intimate, you may require only one photographer, or less photography time.
We have created a lot of flexibility when booking a military wedding photographer. This way, you end up with a wedding package to suit your exact needs. For example, if you are interested in San Diego videography, we provide the option to book this at the same time. This allows you to cross two things off your list at the same time. Or, if you are wanting a custom wedding album to show off your military wedding, we make these available too. This is how we can be adaptive to all kinds of needs and military wedding budgets.
There is one more added benefit to booking your military wedding photography with our studio. We offer a nice built-in discount to military couples so they can save a bit on the wedding photography package. This way, the budget can stretch a little further, and everyone can accomplish what they set out to do!
