1940’s Inspired Engagement | Emily and Rafael

By, November 28, 2017

Emily and Rafael are originally from San Diego, but currently live in North Carolina. Since Rafael is a commercial pilot, the couple flew to San Diego for a special engagement session. The shoot was held in Air Group One’s Hangar and WWII Museum in El Cajon, CA.

Emily and Rafael’s 1940’s attire, hair, and makeup made the photos feel like a step back in time. Also, the suitcases (pictured below) were gifted to Emily’s grandmother on her own wedding day… 60 years ago! Check out the amazing photos from this fun and glamorous engagement photo shoot :)

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

By, August 28, 2014

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!
