Hello friends!  Hope this finds you all doing well.  Sorry again for the delay between postings. As always so many things in the works that I’ve slacked on my blogging responsibilities.  So let’s get back into it and share some photos from a really great couple Wanda & Sihao.  These two lovebirds met while working […]

    Oh my goodness, what a beautiful surprise! How amazing that you got to capture this special moment for them!

  • Marie Monforte Photography - June 19, 2017 - 9:15 PM

    What a gorgeous Presidio Park engagement session! And a great story too – a San Diego work romance that turned into happily ever after! Beautiful photos!

As promised here’s a glimpse of Jen & Justin’s beautiful wedding held at the Darlington House.  Something I didn’t mention with last week’s posting is the amazing history of the Darlington House and how much they do for the community.  The start of this amazing location dates back to 1925 but the thing that stands out […]

    What a fun wedding at the beautiful Darlington House. I especially like the Flower toss! You captured so many sweet moments of this wedding. Congratulations to the couple!

  • Marie Monforte - May 12, 2017 - 5:55 AM

    Wow, I had no idea that Darlington House ha such a great cause behind it! All the more reason for San Diego brides to choose it as their wedding venue!
    (And these reception photos are gorgeous by the way)!

    What a beautiful wedding and venue. The couple is adorable! I love the shots of the bride with her dad (I’m guessing?) and also the one of the the guys twirling. 🙂 So cute!

  • Frank - June 23, 2017 - 11:12 PM

    Thank you so much! Lots of touching moments in this wedding

  • Jennifer L - June 25, 2017 - 7:27 AM

    Omg what a gorgeous wedding! Thank you for sharing this special moment with us. Just amazing!

Hello friends!  I wanted to bring back a past wedding that I never got around to blogging.  Going forward too I think I’m going to break these wedding posts into multiple parts.  They are just so gorgeous in their own way I didn’t want photos shared to be unappreciated.  So anyway…this blast from the past […]

    What a fun wedding at Darlington House! I love the intimate setting and how beautiful their courtyard looks. You captured everyone’s personality so well. This couple is stunning. I love the accent of blue everywhere too. Great job on this San Diego Wedding!

    Thank you! The Darlington House is always a pleasure to work at especially when I have a great couple with impeccable taste!

  • Tiffany Meiter - May 26, 2017 - 9:22 PM

    Those pictures look incredible! I love how that blue just pops out, amazing wedding,

Oh my gosh!  What a great engagement session I had with Bayli & Cortland!  Didn’t originally start that way in that there was a lot of people at beautiful Terramar Beach.  The sun was shining really bright, and there may have been a little bit of nerves by my couple.  In hindsight though it was good […]

    Beautiful setting and what a fun shoot! Cannot wait to see how their wedding is going to be! Love the stone numbers.

  • Marie Monforte - April 28, 2017 - 9:07 AM

    Oh I love Terramar! it’s hard dot shoot at because you have to coordinate low tide with sunset! I love what you did with this engagement session! I especially love how you didn’t just focus on the water and instead tucked the couple into the cliffs too! Lovely collection!

  • Merima - May 1, 2017 - 4:53 AM

    Sunset and low tide at terramar? Excellent north county location that you can’t beat for engagement photos – live all the fun clearly had!

  • Rachel M. - May 1, 2017 - 5:59 AM

    I have never heard of this Terramar beach before, but now that I’ve seen this beautiful engagement session I will have to check it out soon. I love the images with the couple tucked into the cliffs. And, of course, your images at the brewery are so fun and show what a fun photographer you are.

Alrighty friends!  Trying to be better at posting on here.  So for today I’d love to share with you a really fun engagement session with Christine & Travis.  They’re this really great couple I met over lunch discussing their wedding plans.  With their session Christine really had a clear vision for their engagement session.  One that […]

    Fun indeed! Balboa Park and Little Italy are two of San Diego’s best spots for an engagement session! Well done!

  • Kim - April 13, 2017 - 9:28 PM

    What a fun day filled with two of San Diego’s most beautiful spots. I like the idea of dressing up at Balboa Park and getting the urban feel of Little Italy. What a great engagement session!

  • Kaori D - April 14, 2017 - 1:24 AM

    Such fun engagement photos at Balboa Park and Little Italy! Love their energy and you captured their personalities so well. Cannot wait to see their wedding pictures!

  • Rachel - April 17, 2017 - 3:16 AM

    What a fun engagement session at Balboa Park and Little Italy. That image of them all dressed up and sitting on the steps is GOLD! Love them all, but that one is my favorite. Beautiful work, as always!

  • Merima - April 17, 2017 - 3:35 AM

    Classic San Diego through and through – from Balboa Park to Little Italy, it’s like I got a lively tour through the best that SD had to offer. Great idea for engagement photos!

  • kelly reci - May 24, 2017 - 4:25 AM

    Very nice pictures!! looks so perfect!

  • Ayana Pitterson - May 24, 2017 - 11:31 AM

    Ohhhh how I miss San Diego! Best military station ever. Love the photos in Balboa Park and then Little Italy. It captures the couple’s personalities, as you can tell that while they can be serious/formal, they are pretty laid back. Great shots.

  • Gennifer Rose - May 30, 2017 - 4:15 PM

    Gorgeous photos! I live in San Diego too and we just went to Little Italy last night for a photoshoot 🙂
