Photographer’s Wedding | Hilton Bayfront / Ultimate Skybox | Billy & Adriana

By

This past weekend, we were delighted to celebrate the marriage of one of our own – our talented shooter Billy and his lovely wife Adriana. The ceremony took place downtown at the Hilton Bayfront, and our True team was well represented. Because Billy came to San Diego via Winnipeg, there were plenty of festive Canadians in attendance too. Adriana stunned onlookers in her mermaid-style gown, and Billy was no slouch in his dapper blue suit and bow tie.

Following the ceremony, guests walked across a footbridge near Petco Park to the evening’s final destination, The Ultimate Skybox. This swanky downtown venue was perfect for the occasion, with lounge areas, a sweeping city view, and delicious food stations. There was also a lively dance floor, where Billy and Adriana impressed us with their tango skills, and guests attempted traditional Greek dancing. There may have been Ouzo involved :)

Because Billy was too busy to photograph the day himself (we have no idea why), our True Team stepped in and took turns behind the camera. We hope you enjoy a selection of our favorite images below. It was a wonderful wedding and quite a party, and we wish Billy and Adriana a lifetime of happiness. Opa!

Splashy Ocean Beach Engagement Shoot | Charli and Tyler

By

Charli and Tyler attended Indiana University at the same time, and had mutual friends, but didn’t meet until years later. This fun couple now lives in Ocean Beach, and they absolutely love the area. So we all decided to focus the engagement shoot around their favorite part of town – the beach! The Sunset Cliffs area made for the perfect backdrop, and gave the entire shoot a natural, relaxed atmosphere.

Late in the day, we we got down really close to where the waves were crashing. Out of nowhere, a huge swell rolled in and soaked us all! It created an unforgettable moment, and ended the shoot with a splash :) We are looking forward to photographing Charli and Tyler’s upcoming Palm Springs Wedding, and wish them lots of luck with their preparation!

Balboa Park Engagement Shoot | Lauren and Ryan (and Charlie the Puppy)

By

Lauren and Ryan met while hard at work at a local biotechnology company. During one of the monthly all-company lunches, Lauren overheard Ryan talking about his brand new Vizsla puppy. Lauren, a fan of the little-known breed, immediately turned around and asked for details. Ryan, of course, was eager to share. A few weeks later, Lauren received a picture of “Charlie” in her inbox. The rest was history!

Both San Diego natives, Lauren and Ryan both grew up visiting Balboa Park as children. They each remember trying to catch “the ring” from the carousel, and were captivated by the overall beauty of the park. They decided to have their engagement shoot at the iconic San Diego landmark, and fondly chose the carousel as their starting destination. During the shoot, we made our way through many of the park’s picturesque locations (archways, flower fields, grassy lawns), for a variety of different moods and backgrounds.

When taking photos with Charlie, Charlie ended up giving Lauren a HUGE wet kiss – oops! Looks like he approves :) Enjoy the highlights below.

Ava and Joel | Downtown San Diego Central Library Wedding

By

Ava and Joel are happy residents of downtown San Diego, so it seemed fitting that their wedding be held within walking distance. On the wedding day, the couple got ready at the San Diego Hilton Bayfront, which boasts breathtaking views of the coast and downtown skyline. Both the ceremony and reception were held at the New Central Library @ Joan & Irwin Jacobs Common, which offers an abundance of fascinating backdrops and building features. The entire structure is an architectural marvel, and we loved photographing there. Together, the two venues provided a sleek and ultra modern-setting for this wedding day.

As you’ll see, Ava and Joel’s playful nature and attention to detail made for unforgettable photos :) Their coordinator (who also doubled as their officiant) helped everything come together in perfect harmony. Enjoy the highlights below!

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 :)
