Why You Should Hire a Wedding Coordinator for Your Wedding

There are a lot of vendors you need to hire for your wedding. There are some wedding vendors that are core to the process – a venue, catering, a florist, and photographer (of course!) – but some of them are more optional since not everyone can afford to rent furniture and fancy flatware. And today,…

{Twin Oaks Two Ways}

One of the interesting parts of our job as wedding photographers is getting to photograph different weddings at the same venue. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone but, we really enjoy getting to see wedding venues dressed up different ways! One of the wedding venues we get to photograph quite a bit…

First Look: Is it Right for You?

There are lots of decisions you have to make during the wedding planning process and (not to add one to your already long list) but deciding whether or not to do a first look is one of them. Making the decision to do a first look is a personal one and over the years, we…

{All in the Details :: Wedding at Spanish Village}

The details at a wedding are an opportunity to tell the couple’s story and show their personality. So when we arrived at this wedding at Spanish Village, designed by Francine Ribeau Events, we knew right away that this couple was bold, colorful, and loving life! Yessenia + Kelvin’s wedding details were a unique combination of the…

{Diana + Alvin :: The Crosby Club, Rancho Santa Fe}

We are so thankful to get to work with such amazing couples year after year but sometimes the weddings we photograph have years of friendship behind them. We met Alvin 7 years ago (before we had made the big leap into full time wedding photography) and before he had met and fell in love with…

{Christina + Tanner :: Rancho Valencia}

This love story starts an ocean away. Christina dreamed of sun, sand and brushing up on her Spanish and packed her bags for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. But when one of your best friends lives in San Diego, you make a quick stop for the sun, sand and meeting your future husband. Christina + Tanner met…

{Brittany + Dave :: Orfila Winery}

Brittany and Dave’s wedding from Orfila Vineyards & Winery in Escondido, CA was recently featured on Ruffled, click here to check out the feature and read all about their wedding day! Guys, take note of the most thoughtful gift in HISTORY! I can’t even accurately describe how amazing this gift was from Dave to his bride. He kept…

[Amanda + Ara :: Downtown San Diego Engagement}

Amanda was heading home to San Diego on the train from Los Angeles. She had her headphones in working on her laptop (all signals leading to not to be disturbed) when Ara boldly walked up to her and asked to sit in the seat next to her. She nodded at him giving him the okay,…

{Garden Inspired Reception Decor :: Twin Oaks Gardens}

Something a little fun and different we wanted to share. We had the opportunity to shoot a intimate vow renewal at Twin Oaks Garden Estate in San Marcos, CA this summer. The couple is very private so they asked that we don’t share any images from their actual vow renewal but we’re lucky enough to…

{Heather + Chris :: Del Mar Engagement}

Blogging this session has been on my mind for weeks and I’m so excited I had some extra time tonight to get it up! Heather and Chris’ engagement shoot is one of our favorites for the books! But its not very fair because they had a secret for their ridiculous cuteness. Chris was deployed for 8…

{Gareth + Marissa :: Los Penasquitos Canyon Engagement}

We were excited to meet Gareth and Marissa for the first time at their engagement shoot last month. They had suggested Los Penasquitos Canyon and we couldn’t wait to explore this new spot with them. They are getting ready to pick up and move to Colorado this summer as Gareth is pursuing school and a…

{Angela and Chris :: San Juan Capistrano Engagement}

We love it when our couples tell us about new awesome spots we’ve never heard of! Angela and Chris found this cute little winery called Hamilton Oaks Winery just down the street from The Mission in San Juan Capistrano. We were so excited to head up north and meet up with these two. We hit…

{Monica + Weston :: Elfin Forest Engagement}

I’ve known Monica my whole life, our families our best friends and she’s practically like  little sister to me. Her and Weston are an incredible people with the biggest hearts you’ve ever seen. We squeezed their engagement session before they took off to Haiti to serve at a orphanage for a couple of weeks. Their…

{April + Jared :: Santaluz Wedding}

We were honored to photograph April and Jared’s absolutely gorgeous 1920’s inspired wedding at Santaluz in Ranch Santa Fe designed and coordinated by the talented girls over at Before I Do Events. And can we talk about the florals by Hannah from Modern Boquet…AMAZING! I seriously get so giddy when their are beautiful florals to shoot…
