It is no secret that shooting a Catalina Island Wedding is one of my all time favorite locations for a destination wedding. Catalina Island has a special place in my heart (I lived there for a summer) and is one of my all time favorite places to dive and photograph. Hillary
As a Carlsbad wedding photographer a lot of the time I am shooting and venues such as The Crossings Carlsbad, Cape Ray Carlsbad, and Grand Pacific Palisades, however I have also had the opportunity to shoot a lot of work overseas.
I would highly recommend a Big Bear wedding or elopement as Big Bear is absolutely stunning for any celebration. The people of this quaint mountain town are super friendly and from speaking with venues and other industry professionals this destination is both affordable and underrated. For this elopement I photographed
I was really excited to photograph the wedding of RJ and Marissa and I think they made a great choice going opting for The Pearl Hotel and having a Point Loma wedding. The day started with them getting ready at their house in Ocean Beach but they were smart and also grabbed a room at The Pearl.
I met Suzanne some years back when I was on assignment photographing a wedding in Montana for one of our mutual friends. I was flattered to hear that she has been following my work ever since, and that she was excited to know I was back in the country
Gretchen and Jim made an excellent choice with having a Humpgreys Half Moon Inn and Suites wedding, because the views of the marina are absolutely marvelous. I photograph about 5 or more weddings at this venue a year and I can say that not only is the staff delightful to work with,
I was super excited when Kathryn and Bill asked me to shoot their Moonlight Beach wedding. Kathryn is a diehard surfer and Bill works as an attorney for surf companies so we instantly had a lot in common. What can I say about these two, they are absolutely perfect for each other and I am super blessed
For Chris and Jenny’s special day I was happy to work in conjunction with Dream Beach Weddings, whom did an excellent job organizing an Imperial Beach wedding for these two.
Lainie and Austin’s wedding took place at Slate Barn and Gardens in Vista, California which is one of my new favorite wedding venues for celebrations around the 100 guests mark. The garden setting creates a very intimate atmosphere for the ceremony and the barn area is perfect for dinning and dancing. I’m really excited to share the photos of their special day, they are super in love and with all their friends and family hitting the dance floor it was a real blast with a lot of fun shots. A special thank you to Heidi Hartness for organizing the day of, and a thank you to the Slate Barn and Gardens
We did this epic engagement shoot for Melissa and RJ a few months back in Ocean Beach with their VW Van. They found me on TheKnott.com and with love for the ocean we were an instant match.
