Let me just say right off the bat, we LOVE Sylvia and Jimmy. They are two of the funniest, sweetest people ever and we are lucky to count them as two of our very wonderful friends. When Jimmy proposed to Sylvia, we were SUPER excited for them, so when they asked us to shoot their wedding our excitement only quadrupled (as if that were possible!). We set the first location of our shoot at the scene of the engagement, Buena Vista Park in the Vista/Carlsbad area. Their engagement story is quite sweet and it was awesome getting to see exactly where the big question was popped. Before the Summer sun set, we went over to Moonlight State Park, where romance was definitely in the air. We are so excited to share these photos with you all, and can’t wait for their wedding in April! Enjoy!!
It’s with great excitement that we present to you all, Jason and Crystal’s wedding photos and a little video Kevin managed to shoot too! When Crystal and Jason told us they were getting married, and in COSTA RICA (YESSS!!) we were incredibly excited for them. And when they told us they wanted XOXO Wedding Photo to be there, we were HONORED and THRILLED!
Crystal and Jason are two of the sweetest, most hilarious people you’ll ever meet! And if you ever do, there is a 100% chance you will be part of an adventure with them. Kevin definitely had an adventure, (or five), with the newlyweds while shooting them on the gorgeous tropical beaches of Tambor, Costa Rica. He was quite spoiled, as he got to stay with Jason, Crystal and their wedding parties at the gorgeous Villa Katino, a home nestled in the jungles with AMAZING ocean views. (see panorama below)
The touching ceremony was held on the rocky and beautifully pre-historic looking beaches near Playa Carmen. In front of God, their dearest friends, and the great Pacific, Crystal and Jason exchanged their vows. As Kevin’s trip came to a close, he made sure to get as much time with the newlyweds as he could! It was definitely hard to say good-bye but the memories he captured will let him, Jason, Crystal, all of the great people he met and befriended relive such a unforgettable time! Kevin’s alternate title for this wedding is “Manhunts, Mel Gibson and The Missing Newlyweds”. Lot’s of stories from this trip! Enjoy!
May 21st was a day of beautiful beginnings, as Sharon and Derek became wife and husband. Kevin and I had a wonderful time with the couple at their engagement shoot in Cabrillo National Park, and couldn’t wait for their big day at the gorgeous and luxurious L’Auberge Del Mar.
The ceremony was held at the lovely Seagrove Park, just a short walk away from the resort. Excited guests, some visiting from as far as Asia, all stood in awe as the beautiful bride made her way down the aisle. The party commenced shortly afterwards as loving toasts were made, delicious food and cake were served, and everyone danced the night away!
We are so EXCITED to share these photos with you all, and wish Sharon and Derek all the best!
This is definitely what comes to mind when I think of these two and their amazing wedding. Danielle and Chris are SO in love and it was a blast to be a part of their wedding day. The full length (this is just the trailer below) is almost FIFTY minutes! The couple is amazing, the weather was perfect, the guests were awesome, the Rabbi was kickass (I can say that, right?!)…… just watch the video, and let us know what you think!
“This video is amazing!!! I am so grateful to Kevin and his team for capturing the most special moments of my life and encapsulating them for us in this fantastic, fun and beautiful video. Thank you!! There are tears in my eyes right now and all I want to do is
watch this video again and again. – I can’t get enough of this!!”
“Wow. We have been anticipating an awesome video but Kevin and his team have outdone any expectations I had. This is going to be something we cherish and watch until digital videos are no longer cool. Thanks so much.”

On a beautiful and sunny San Diego Sunday, we had the honor of documenting Aimee and Anthony’s wedding. Kevin and I met the newlyweds last July, for their engagement shoot in Balboa Park and we couldn’t believe it was already their big day!
The ceremony and reception were held at the Bali Hai, a landmark Hawaiian restaurant that has been in San Diego for over fifty years. Aimee and Anthony only had us for a three hours, so we made our way into the reception room and ceremony site to get the photography party started! The centerpieces were these lovely white birdcages decorated with vibrant flowers. So pretty, right?
Once the bride arrived, you could just feel the excitement in the air! Before we knew it, it was time for the beautiful outdoor ceremony. I couldn’t help but get a little emotional when Aimee and her father walked down the aisle. With views of the bay and the downtown skyline, Aimee and Anthony exchanged their vows and became Mr. and Mrs. Wikum.
We wish we would have had more time with the bride and groom but like everyone who’s ever been part of a wedding day, time goes by so fast! Then it was on to the reception where we got to see the newlyweds dance for the first time as husband and wife. I’m so happy we got to capture some fun dancing before it was time for us to go. Aimee’s niece and nephew are just the cutest! Best wishes to Aimee and Anthony! Wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness!
San Diego is a city full of breathtaking views, and one of the views at the top of the list is definitely Cabrillo National Monument. We had a wonderful time meeting up here with Sharon and Derek. Aside from the amazing ocean and city views, Cabrillo was chosen as the location for the shoot because this is where Derek had originally intended to propose to Sharon. Since his plan didn’t turn out exactly as he has anticipated, we thought it would be fun to at least do their engagement shoot here. 2011 is sure to be a memorable year for them. Not only are they getting married soon, they’re expecting a baby later this year! So exciting! We wish them both nothing but the best, and look forward to shooting their wedding in May!
