Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding | Angela & Kyle

By, May 27, 2016

Angela and Kyle were married at the Scripps Seaside Forum, a beautiful venue that hugs the shores of La Jolla, California. They chose this location because they are die-hard San Diego fans, and wanted to give their guests (especially the out-of-towners) a great feel for ‘America’s Finest City’. As you can imagine, there were some pretty amazing backdrops throughout the wedding day.

While photographing, we captured a nice variety of photos with Scripps Seaside Forum in the composition, helping to tell the story of the day. We always make sure to incorporate the venue in an artistic way, like the photo above.

In the photo below, we placed Angela’s Jimmy Choo shoes in the bright sun, which brought out their maximum brilliance. The blue sky and leading lines in the background gave extra attention to these amazing kicks :)

Kyle has a fun-loving personality and a great smile. It was important for us to bring out these qualities in the photos… as well as his love for the San Diego Padres (below).

Before the ceremony, the couple got ready at the nearby Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, an upscale resort overlooking the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course. Scouting this location beforehand allowed us to find this epic spot for the first look. We photographed from a distance so Angela and Kyle could have a quiet moment together.

Angela and Kyle had a huge bridal party, which is not surprising, considering how fun-loving and inviting they are. It was very important for them to have ALL of their closest friends stand by them on their big day. We were more than ready to direct traffic and come up with many configurations for this large group!

Angela and Kyle’s ceremony was officiated by their Pastor, Shawn Kennedy of Existence Church.

For the photo below, we placed our camera on an extended tripod, resulting in this cool angle.

We know how much thought and effort goes into the wedding details, and look for ways to incorporate them into the photos.

When he and Angela first started talking about getting married, Kyle mentioned that he envisioned a full-on sports themed wedding. Angela pretended to be ok with it until they got engaged, when she extinguished those plans…or so Kyle thought! As a surprise, Angela managed to sneak in fun baseball touches throughout the day.

Dreamy Seaside Wedding at Windansea Beach

By, February 25, 2015

Windansea Beach is a popular coastal location in La Jolla, and is also the place that Kimberly and Matthew call home. So for their wedding, the couple decided to share this special spot with those closest to them. The event featured a toes-in-the-sand ceremony, lush organic décor, and a naturally beautiful setting. With rolling waves behind the couple as they exchanged vows, it was pretty much heaven on earth!

We can’t get enough of Kimberly’s beautifully laid-back bridal style. Her flowing gown was the epitome of a beach wedding dress, and her loose wavy hair and floral crown were just gorgeous. Check out the images we captured from their special day, and prepare to be whisked away to cloud nine!Kimberly1Kimberly2Kimberly5Kimberly23Kimberly8Kimberly6Kimberly7Kimberly11Kimberly10Kimberly24Kimberly27Kimberly26Kimberly25Kimberly18Kimberly12Kimberly13Kimberly16Kimberly19Kimberly14Kimberly2Kimberly20Kimberly22 Kimberly15 Kimberly17
