May gray has never looked so good!  Adam, Ashley and I made an early morning go at shooting their engagement session at Sunset Cliffs hoping that the light would be bomb…. of course it was about as gloomy as it could have possibly been, San Diego’s May gray at it’s finest!  Ain’t no gloom gonna slow them down… they were incredibly happy and excited about everything and I think it shows in their photos.  After we’d had enough of the gloom we bounced over to Balboa Park to enjoy a bit of sunshine.    san diego sunset cliffs engagement sessionrelaxing at the tidal pools their engagement session at Sunset Cliffs San Diegowalking on the rocksrelaxed black and white image of couple kissing at their engagement session at Sunset Cliffs San Diegothe couple on the rocks their engagement session at Sunset Cliffsa tender moment with the couplesan diego candid engagement photocouple posing between balloons at their engagement session at Sunset Cliffs San Diegothe couple holding balloons at their engagement session at Sunset Cliffs San Diegoballoons at sunset cliffs engagement sessionblack and white images from sunset cliffs engagement photo shootcouple on the rocks at sunset cliffs for their engagement sessionsunset cliffs san diego engagement shoothuge tree with giant roots and the couple engagement sessiona candid photograph at sunset cliffs engagement sessionthe bride hugging her groom tightly during their photo shootthe couple relaxing off the trails at Sunset Cliffs engagement sessionthe couple holding pink balloons and laughingthe couple laughing in between pink balloons at engagement session

A few weeks ago I hooked up with Rob and Maressa down in La Jolla near the Scripps pier for their engagement session.  We did the typical Anika London exploring job and found some cool little nooks to shoot in before heading down to the beach.  Their wedding is coming up quick and I’d venture to say that it’s going to be a good one 🙂  La Jolla engagement photoLa-Jolla-Engagement-02La-Jolla-Engagement-03La-Jolla-Engagement-04La-Jolla-Engagement-05La-Jolla-Engagement-06La-Jolla-Engagement-07La-Jolla-Engagement-08La-Jolla-Engagement-09La-Jolla-Engagement-10La-Jolla-Engagement-11La-Jolla-Engagement-12

We photographed Vince and Cheryl’s wedding on a gorgeous San Diego day at the unbelievable Hotel Del Coronado.  The weather was perfect and the day was a blast to be a part of!  Originally the couple had somewhat of an unconventional more customized reception planned for their guests and didn’t include a first dance.  Vince (one of the coolest most genuine guys I’ve ever met) ended up completely surprising Cheryl with a flash mob where he joined in and brought her out to enjoy a dance together as newly husband and wife.  Everyone loved it!  What a moment, it was so fun to photograph.the groom's custom cuff linksthe pink bow tie the groom wore to his wedding at the Hotel Del Coronadotiger shirt groomsmen funnydresses hangingmakeupthe groom wearing his j crew suit and bow tiethe bride at Hotel Del Coronadothe groom and his J crew suit for his wedding
