Lydia & Clay – San Diego Engagement Photography

Meet Lydia and Clay! What a sweet couple! We used downtown San Diego as the backdrop for their engagement photos and had a great time hitting up a few locations in a short period of time. As you will see, they are so sweet with each other! Lots of love and smiles : ) Stay tuned for their wedding photos!

The garage doors we were shooting in front of belonged to the San Diego Fire Department downtown. All of a sudden one of the door started opening and I thought we were going to be asked to move to a different location for safety reasons. Then we saw one of the firetrucks roll out to go save the day! Go SDFD!

Thanks Lydia and Clay! You guys did great! I know it is hard work being a “model”!

Dave & Syl Get Married – San Diego Wedding Photography

Meet Dave and Syl! They were an awesome laid back San Diego couple that I had the pleasure of photographing after I got a call from my friends at Goodnickels Photography. Someone was sick and they needed some assistance. I was happy to jump on board and help out. Here are some of the images from the lovely beach-side day.

Dave relaxed with his groomsmen just a short walk from the ceremony site.

Their ceremony was so sweet and personal! Bethel was an amazing officiant!

During the ceremony as  I crouched down in the aisle to take pictures of the bride and groom, I looked over and this little cutie wanted to play!

Mother and Father of the bride as they walked down the aisle of the ceremony to cocktail hour. So happy!

A few lovely details…

Syl and Dave taking a casual formal with Syl’s parents and sisters. I love how happy they all look!

Because I couldn’t decide on one bridal party pictures to post (they are all so fun!), here is a series!

Pretty sure these are their Zoolander faces!

Nothin’ like a pat on the tush from your sister! (I love how Dave and Syl are just watching them!)

Love Dave’s smile here…

I caught this moment of  Syl checking out her new rings.Thanks to Dave and Syl for allowing me to join them on their special day at the last moment! It was a lovely day!

Kristen – San Diego Headshots

Meet Kristen! She is one of my beautiful cousins and a very talented yoga instructor in New Jersey. During a visit to San Diego, she and I went out for a little shoot.

Joe-Joe & Family – San Diego Kids Photography

Meet Joe-Joe, what a cutie! He is exactly the same age as my nephew, so I always know how old he is : ) This is the second time photographing him and his parents. I love that I get to see kids as they get older every year!

Look at those eyelashes!

Joe-Joe’s name is actually Joseph, but that is his dad’s name. So to avoid confusion at home, Dad goes by Joe and the baby goes by Joe-Joe. Super cute!

Mom and dad steal a quick smooch…

We moved to the backyard for a change of scenery and had a little fun!

This is my favorite, I just had to throw it in :)

Kimberly & Beau – Engagement Session, La Jolla

Meet Kimberly and Beau! We did their engagement session in La Jolla, CA. It was a windy day, which made it hard on Kimberly’s hair! It was also a pretty cloudy, which contrary to popular belief, usually makes BETTER photos : )

We had a fun session exploring around La Jolla Cove and taking in the awesome scenery!

How cute are they?

Beau did this move all on his own. You go Beau! Kimberly is a lucky woman ; )

Thanks for being such sports in the chilly weather!

Jen at the Beach – San Diego Portrait Photography

Meet Jen! Jen has been a friend of mine for many years and I was happy to come to the rescue when she wanted her pictures taken at the beach. We decided to use her stomping grounds, Ocean Beach, CA, for our backdrop. And what a great backdrop it was! We had a great time looking for places to shoot! She was a great sport and a great model! Thanks Jen, enjoy!

Jen was a champ that day, the sun was super bright!

Vroom Vroom! Go girl!

I just love how the grass made a nice backdrop! Look at those eyes! Green on green!

She’s the queen of the wooooorld!

Jen is #1…at #1 lifeguard tower in Ocean Beach, CA!

The OB Pier had lots of places to work with!

I love how the sun is hitting her here.

Thanks Jen! I had an awesome time! I hope you did too!
