0001 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticJessica and Rick’s Summer wedding started with some unexpected San Diego Summer rain, which can only mean good luck!  And we were in luck because the rain stopped just in time for photos and gave us beautiful light to work with over in Old Town.  Old Town was the perfect backdrop for these photos because Jessica and Rick’s wedding reception decor was Mexican and Moroccan themed.  The best part of the shoot was when we were headed back to the limo and saw this guitar player on the red bench (above).  He played a special Spanish serenade for Jessica and Rick and inspired some tears.  It was an amazing moment.  The whole day was filled with so many amazing moments, as you will see below.  Enjoy!0002 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticRick checking out the rain.0003 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticRick had a Go-Pro setup in the perfect spot to capture the day from a unique perspective.0004 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticVows.0041Married!0007 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticExiting the Church0008 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticMaricahi’s greeted the guests as they exited the church.0009 San Diego Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticKissing under the umbrella…

0001 San Diego Maternity PhotographerJust three years ago, we photographed Paige and Ernie’s Engagement and Wedding.  We were so happy to hear from them this year when they contacted to document another milestone in their lives together. It was fitting that they chose to have the photos taken by the ocean, since their engagement session and wedding both included different beaches in San Diego.  They were both radiating a peaceful joy over this baby, and she’s wasn’t even here yet!  We are so looking forward to meeting her in a few days to document her first few weeks at home.  More photos to come then…0002 San Diego Maternity Photographer0003 San Diego Maternity Photographer0004 San Diego Maternity Photographer0005 San Diego Maternity Photographer0006 San Diego Maternity Photographer0007 San Diego Maternity Photographer0008 San Diego Maternity Photographer0009 San Diego Maternity Photographer0010 San Diego Maternity Photographer0011 San Diego Maternity Photographer

It was so fun to photograph this amazing couple in Rick’s hometown of Montclair New Jersey.  Being based in San Diego, it’s such a treat to shoot in a place that is so green!  Yes, we paid for it with some New Jersey heat and humidity, but Jordan and Riz were troopers. Their fun-loving nature made this such a fun outing. There were lots of laughs and beautiful moments where (as you can see) Jordan and Riz were just glowing with happiness and joy.  We started off in Brookdale Park… check out those amazing elm trees and beautiful rose garden!  Then we headed over to Kips Castle, which rests on the highest point in Montclair and offers a beautiful view of New York City as well as incredible architecture that replicates a medieval Norman castle.  Jordan and Riz are both from Montclair and have many childhood memories at these spots.  The evening ended with a shoot on the rooftop of Jordan’s old apartment in Montclair. This was where Jordan lived when he met his future wife.  It was fun to hear them reminisce about the parties they used to have on that roof back when they were dating. We’re so happy that we were able to capture this special time for Riz and Jordan.  These guys are bound to make each other happy for the rest of their lives!
