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!
Many compare love and relationships to a roller coaster ride—but believe me when I tell you, there are definitely no “lows” when it comes to Kira and Jeremy! We had SUCH a great time with them on their shoot! The weather gods were definitely smiling down on us that afternoon–it was just perfect! The kind of beautiful and sunny San Diego day that turns tourists into San Diegans. The shoot started at Belmont Park, the very historic amusement park that’s located right in Mission Beach. The Giant Dipper, the roller coaster making a cameo in our shoot, was built in 1925 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places–pretty cool, right?! We heart these photos, not only because they’re so much fun, but they truly showcase the infectious energy and love that you feel when you are around Kira and Jeremy!
The second location for our shoot was at Kate O. Session’s Park in Pacific Beach. The second you arrive, your mouth literally drops when you see the view! Absolutely gorgeous! From downtown to the beaches, you see EVERYTHING! And it was the perfect spot for shooting the beautiful couple! XOXO Wedding Photo is SO EXCITED for Kira and Jeremy, and we can’t wait to shoot their wedding this September!
Who thinks libraries can be romantic? We do! Part 1 of our engagement shoot “spectacular spectacular” begins with Christina and Felipe at the very retro library in Downtown San Diego. The reason why we have a part 1 and part 2 is because we had to postpone part of their first engagement shoot due to really wet weather. Luckily we were able to reschedule for part 2, and as you will shortly see, the weather was more than perfect!
Amongst the stacks of books was a lot of inspiration for a very fun afternoon we were really grateful and happy to be a part of. Enjoy and see you for part dos!
I did a short night time shoot Downtown for some friends of mine the other night. They’re not engaged. They did wants some cute shoots together though. We wanted to shoot at Sunset & during the day. But the day ended up being very unlike San Diego. Completely overcast. Matt’s the vocalist for a killer band from here, Lower Definition. Now they’re on tour. So the daytime shoot will have to wait until he returns. I had a lot of fun shooting with these two and can’t wait to finish it up!
Planning a wedding can undoubtedly be stressful, but like all things in life, you have the power to choose if the glass of wine is half full or half empty. Think of your wedding planning like a glass of your favorite wine–no matter what “challenges” appear, we want it to be full, right?!
One planning tool I found to be VERY helpful and fun to work on was the wedding storyboard. I’m a very visual person, so to just jot down a list of which flowers I liked, or what color combinations I loved was NOT going to work. In our case, Kevin and I weren’t sure on what theme or vibe we were going for until we had our venue booked–the gorgeous Don CeSar Resort and Hotel in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Now if you’re familiar with the hotel, it is PINK (see first pic below!). And fortunately for me, I love pink and was instantly inspired. Right away I knew I wanted a black and white wedding with touches of light pink. So thinking about your venue as the foundation for planning everything else is a good tip!
A friend of ours Kelly Schnorr had her art gallery opening the other night. We went & it was a ton of fun. Cool art, cool people, and Mexican bottled Coke! Our favorite Coke! Her art is amazing. Really gifted clay shaper. I guess thats what you would call part of what she does. She asked us to come back early the next day to shoot all her pieces. Here are my favorites!
