San Diego Wedding

July 9, 2009

A couple weeks ago I had the unusual pleasure of shooting the wedding of a couple I never met before.  Usually its just a little uncomfortable photographing a wedding when I never met the couple but Jamie, Marc, their friends and their family were so rad that it didn’t even matter.  We hit it off right off the bat.

My assistant, Jesse, and I started with Jamie and the girls getting ready at the Estancia Resort and Spa in San Diego. These girls are characters for sure! The coolest couple of bride’s maids ever!

After hanging out with Jamie and her bride’s maids for a while we headed over to the Martin Johnson House for the wedding ceremony. It was a very unusual and quaint venue with beautiful ocean views.

After the ceremony we went over to the Salk Institute on the vast UCSD campuses. If you have never seen this area let me tell you it is awesome for its architecture and awesome Southern California ocean views. We got some rad shots there in infrared as well as the standard uv capture.

Please take a moment to enjoy the pictures below and thanks for looking at my blog!

Brianne and Phil were married at a Catholic Church in Los Angeles and had their wedding reception at the Marina Del Rey Marriot. Brianne and Phil are friends of wedding photographer Holly Steen. Holly shot all the pictures of Brianne getting ready then she left it up to me as she wanted to join the party. I’m glad she did because I probably had just as much fun plus I got to get great shots during their wedding reception at the Marina Del Rey Marriott! Please have a look at the pictures below and don’t forget to view my website!

Also please take a look at their slide show for a more complete view of the day!  http://www.bluesilverphoto.com/data/web/brianneandphil/index.html

First engagement shoot of the year! Nicole and John were so fun to work with. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Strawberry Farms this summer! We spent about three hours at two locations. First we went down to a secluded part of Laguna Beach where we shot some infra red then we wrapped up at the Dana Point Harbor.

Today I got to shoot another wedding at the Montecito Country Club in Santa Barbara with my friend Andrew Van Gundy. As usual I am always stoked to shoot with Andrew if I am not booked on my own wedding. Check out Andrew’s site here: theweddingphotog.com
Tiffany and Brandon had a beautiful wedding inside but of course we did some shots around the grounds. I even did a few in infra red. Check out the pictures and slideshow! http://www.bluesilverphoto.com/data/web/tiffanyandbrandon/index.html
