Crowne Plaza San Diego – Reggie and Diana’s Wedding

It was a little over 2 years ago when  a gentleman called me from Indiana and said he would like to do a photo session with his girlfriend when he came to San Diego to visit her.

Who would’ve guessed two years later I would be photographing Reggie and Diana’s wedding!

I absolutely  love  and appreciate this beautiful couple!  Whenever these two get in front of my camera, it is so much fun and we create beautiful images every time.

Reggie and Diana, I was very honored to be able to capture your wedding day!!  It was absolutely beautiful!  Here are a few of my favorites.
