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.

Azsa and Michael’s Engagement Session

I met Michael when I did a photo session with his family a few years ago and I simply adore his family!  I also captured his parent’s surprise wedding vow renewal to celebrate their 30th anniversary that Michael and his sister, Tiffanie arranged…it was awesome!

Needless to say, I was excited and honored when he contacted me to see if I would be available to do his wedding this October…and when I met his lovely bride to be, Azsa, that put the icing on the wedding cake!

I always encourage clients to choose a location that they truly want instead of what’s close and convenient so when Azsa suggested Rodeo Drive…I was all in!

We had a two part session with part one in Temecula/Murrieta which included one of their favorite spots and part 2 on Rodeo Drive.

Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session!

Michael is a drummer…and we know who has dibs on this handsome and talented drummer!

His beautiful fiancé has dibs on this drummer ;D

Luis and Jill ♥

When I first spoke to Jill on the phone I instantly loved her energy!   The love that she and Luis have for each other was evident as she shared their story of how they rose above a few odds to become one.

We decided to do a photo shoot at a location that has special meaning to her and Luis.  I always encourage people to choose a spot that is special to them and not on convenience, and since they love the beach that is exactly where we headed and it was worth it!!

Jill and Luis were recently married and will be celebrating with friends and family this July!

Here are a few of my favorites from our session.

Rhonda & Michal Engagement

Oh my goodness….I am soooo glad to have my blog back!!!  The site I previously had my blog with discontinued the service, so I finally had the chance to get a new blog back up again and I have a lot of catching up to do!!

What a JOY it was to photograph Rhonda and Michal’s engagement session earlier this year.  I had the honor of also photographing their wedding in August which I will share soon.  Rhonda and Michal were so fun to photograph and I am so glad that they trusted me to capture this special time in their lives!  Rhonda and Michal when I look at your images, they make me smile from the GREAT memories of our time together.  I have much love for both of you ♥.
