We had a beautiful afternoon with this gorgeous couple in the back roads of Jamul. As we strolled down the Sweetwater River Bridge, Derek reminisced on his childhood memories driving down this bridge, which no longer has access to cars. Then, we headed to Derek’s childhood home, where he and Cecily met for this first time at his sister’s wedding. The session ended with a sweet ride in the car that Derek and Cecily drove on their first date. So many sweet memories! How cool that these guys were able to create new ones that they can now look back on for years to come. Congrats Derek and Cecily!
Here are a few of our favorites from a recent shoot in two of our favorite spots in San Diego: Mission Trails and La Jolla Cove…two very different expressions of beautiful San Diego landscapes. It was so nice to photograph Katie and Jason in their element, in nature. Even their pups felt at home on the trails! We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous day and sweeter couple. We hope you enjoy that sweetness as it shines through in these images…
Just like Katelyn and Andrew did for their engagement session at Lake Cuyamaca, they chose another picture perfect backdrop filled with natural beauty to celebrate their love on their wedding day. The coastal scene in Del Mar reflected the beautiful love that was beaming from this gorgeous couple. The ceremony and reception took place at the stunning L’Auberge Del Mar Spa and Resort. Everything was gorgeous and Katelyn and Andrew were grounded and relaxed as they prepared to share their vows in front of their family and closest friends. Below are some of our favorite moments from the day.Over the months before the wedding day, Andrew and his father built the gazebo that Katelyn and Andrew would be married under. They assembled it the morning of the wedding, with the sun beaming down, and it will find it’s permanent home in Andrew and Katelyn’s back yard.

Enjoy these images from Sara and Eric’s shoot at Belmont Park in Mission Beach. These guys were up to have a good time! In going on rides, playing games, riding their bikes, and watching the sunset, their love shown so bright! The shoot was effortless fun, and if this is any indication of how their marriage will be, they’re in for a sweet ride!
Here are some of our favorites from Katelyn and Andrew’s engagement session in Julian at Lake Cuyamaca. Katelyn and Andrew enjoy all things outdoors; camping, hiking, fishing…so, this was a perfect location to document this time in their lives. This session was full of laughter and felt more like hanging out than working for us…especially the last part when we got to watch the sun go down to the sound of a crackling fire and the crunching of smores.
We are so excited to celebrate and document their wedding day! Congratulations Katelyn and Andrew.
