It was so much fun working with Rehana and Mark on their Belmont Park Engagement Photos.  This is the kind of engagement shoot you just never want to end.  We went from fun event to fun event, from riding beach cruiser bikes down the mission beach board walk to screaming our lungs out on the roller coaster.  The day was like a carnival.  Rehana and Mark waited in line surrounded by kiddos to hop on the carousel, which never seems to go as fast as it did when you were a kid.  After choosing the perfect carousel animals and a few dizzying circles around we followed them over to a baseball pitching carnival game.  And no day is complete without some arcade time.  Rehana and Mark really know how to have a good time and it was a blast to tag along with them for the day.  It would be hard to choose a favorite moment from Rehana and Mark’s Belmont Park engagement photos but I’d have to say the roller coaster might take the cake.  Our beach segment of the day was also a lot of fun.

Evan and Meagan had a beautiful Playa Del Carmen Destination Wedding.  They traveled down to Mexico with their family from Tucson and spent two phenomenal weeks at an all inclusive resort in Playa Del Carmen called Barcelo Riviera Maya .  A lot of  Meagan’s  family was traveling in for the wedding from the east coast so part of their reasoning for a destination wedding was that it would give all of their guests a memorable vacation somewhere spectacular.  By having their wedding at an all inclusive resort allowed Meagan and Evan to spend a lot more quality time with their family and guests.  Meagan did a great job preplanning everything from afar so that on the day of their wedding she and Evan could relax and enjoy the day.

Their ceremony was laid out beautifully on one of the resorts private beaches.  With a fun indoor reception to follow.

Our Julian Engagement Shoot with Kevin and Elyssa was so  much fun.  They chose Julian for their engagement photos because it holds a special place in Kevin and Elyssa’s hearts.  The open fields and mountainous landscape remind Elyssa of her home town in the bay area.  Every fall this sweet couple makes the two hour drive from San Diego up to Julian for a long weekend of relaxation, apple picking and delicious pies.  Kevin and Elyssa did a wonderful job of mapping out some of their favorite spots in Julian for us to shoot at.  The Old Julian School House was a must stop with it’s rustic charm.  The leaves on the trees all over were changing colors making for a lovely fall engagement shoot.  We stopped for some cute photos in grassy fields and took a stroll under big beautiful old trees.  The day ended with all of us at the Orchard Hill Country Inn where Kevin and Elyssa were staying for the weekend.  The luxury B&B has rustic old wagons, cute adirondack chairs all over the property, and a relaxing hammock tucked away in a private corner.  We had a truly wonderful afternoon laughing and joking with Kevin and Elyssa on their Julian engagement shoot.  We can’t wait for their wedding this fall.

We had a blast taking Kris and Ted’s Coronado Beach Portraits.  We started their photo session over at the Coronado Ferry Landing and then as the sun was close to setting headed over to the beach.
