Ashlee and Jeff | Mission Beach Engagement Shoot

By

Recently, we photographed the engagement of Ashlee and Jeff in Belmont Park, and the Mission Bay Sportcenter. This fun-loving couple met during their time as undergrads at the University of Arizona, but didn’t go on their first date until much later. This past year, Jeff surprised Ashlee with a proposal at her 1920′s-themed birthday, with many of her closest friends in attendance.

Although Ashlee and Jeff are Arizona residents, they knew they wanted to venture out of the desert and onto the beach. Keeping in line with their nautical themed wedding, a sailboat dock seemed like the perfect backdrop for the engagement shoot. However, the weekend they arrived in San Diego for the shoot, it rained the entire time! In fact, it poured up until about 2 hours before the shoot, and then the sky cleared in time for a gorgeous sunset.

During the shoot, we got great photos of Ashlee and Jeff in and around Belmont Park, enjoying the sights and carnival games. Then, we ventured down to Mission Bay Sportscenter for the oceanfront views. We are excited to photograph their upcoming wedding (and wish them better weather)! Check out highlights below from the photo session :)

Comic-Con 2014 Exclusive Photos | Best Costumes Day 1

By

It’s finally happened. We’ve been invaded by swamp people. Steps from our studio is an endless parade of dashing heroes, buxom heroines, and brave parental types with kids in tow. Together, it makes for a gigantic, lanyard-brandishing mass of costumed crusaders, zombies, warriors, and wizards. All have the same objective, a shared critical mission… get inside those doors!

We’re talking of course about Comic-Con, the annual fête of upcoming Hollywood releases, TV shows, and comics. Now in its fifth decade, Comic-Con has become the zeitgeist of pop culture, a place where hype is in full effect, expectations are high, and even causal fans get swept up in the madness. Early this morning, we grabbed our super-cameras, and ventured into the epicenter to capture the anticipation, meet new super-friends, and appreciate the awesome spectacle that is Comic-Con 2014.

No longer confined to the Convention Center, Comic-Con now permeates San Diego during its run, with immersive experiences in the Gaslamp, hush-hush film screenings, and celebrity sightings. Everyone seems to be getting into the spirit, from the San Diego Symphony to local fave Searsucker to the San Diego Law Library. There’s even at least one Batman-themed burlesque show across town. Not to mention the late night after-parties, where bleary-eyed enthusiasts schvitzing through their masks and costumes will dance the night away.

But that is all to come; as of this writing, the fun is just beginning.

Enjoy the photos below!

Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield

By

Sandra and Craig had a gorgeous wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, the outdoor, rustic location chosen for their beautiful Colorado wedding. The natural outdoor venue is nestled along the banks of Deer Creek, with the Denver Foothills as the backdrop. The indoor rental facilities are historic buildings, providing classic reception opportunities.

As photographers, we wanted to take advantage of this natural outdoor setting, and create detailed images with a fashionable and timeless vibe. As you’ll see, Sandra and Craig’s charismatic personalities really shone through! :)

Downtown San Diego is a popular wedding spot for locals and destination seekers alike. The downtown area is full of awesome venues that are sure to please every dynamic duo. Many modern couples specifically favor The Gaslamp Quarter, which is a lively business and entertainment district. As photographers, we also enjoy the Gaslamp, with its chic hotels and historic landmarks. Around every corner are intriguing colors, textures, and scenery, which serve as cool backgrounds. We love taking it to the streets for fun urban wedding shots, day and night!

Check out our selection of recent Gaslamp Quarter weddings from America’s Finest City.
