Fun Wedding Action Shots

By, August 04, 2017

Action shots are a great addition to the romantic, stylized, and candid photos captured throughout the wedding day. We accomplish action shots by creating a sense of movement within the image. By playing off our environment, and the personalities of our wedding couple, there are tons of opportunities for fun and creative photos! Here are a few of our recent favorites :)

Nautical Nuptials

By, July 27, 2017

There’s nothing more distinctly San Diego than our iconic coasts and bays! For the seafaring couple, there are many options available to get close to the water. Whether it’s a ceremony overlooking San Diego’s gorgeous waterfront, or a floating reception under the nighttime skyline, a nautical wedding is classic and romantic. Here are a few examples of couples who celebrated by (or on) the water:

There are many options to charter a boat for the ceremony or reception. This beautiful boat ceremony on the San Diego bay was chartered by Flagship Cruises and Events.

Getting Emotional About Candid Wedding Photography

By, July 20, 2017

At the risk of sounding sentimental, we love candids! When subjects don’t know they’re being photographed, we are able to capture fleeting glances, unabashed joy, and pure heartfelt emotion. Whether it’s a reaction during a First Look, or a smile during a particularly bawdy toast, we enjoy documenting those magical moments that make your wedding so uniquely yours.

We photograph candids all throughout the wedding day, to show glimpses of the ‘true’ feelings of the occasion. The resulting candids often wind up being among the most treasured photos :) Here are a few of our recent favorite candid wedding photos showcasing the big day!

hile photographing Efren and his groomsmen at Leo Carrillo Ranch, one of the locals decided to stop by and steal a little limelight. As the peacock began to flaunt its feathers, we were quick to capture the groomsmens' unfiltered reactions to the moment.

We spend a lot of time getting to know our clients' personalities before the big day. During Christina and Matty's wedding (above) at Santiago Canyon Estate, a groomsmen may have shared a bit too much when it was his turn on the mic. Focusing on the Christina and Matty, we were able to capture their priceless reactions!
