Cristina and Patrick in Little Italy

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to be immersed in such diverse cultural experiences. Cristina and Patrick’s wedding had such a beautiful flavor or Italy – I will have a hard time forgetting this experience any time soon. From the pre-rehearsal dinner at the Mona Lisa to the amazing house where all the “getting ready” happened… to the Catholic Church in Little Italy… and the Sicilian Band at the reception. Thank you both so much for having me out to your amazing wedding.

Egyptian Coptic wedding = A very good time

Christopher Cooke Photography invited me up to help him out with a wedding in Los Angeles. When I had agreed I was unaware of what a cool experience it would be – I have never witnessed a Coptic Orthodox ceremony before… or partied with 200 Egyptians, Americans and a host of other cultures. It was a night I will certainly remember for a long time to come.

New albums arrived today

I whole shipment of albums arrived today so we were pretty excited. The first one out of the box was from Jodi and Torge’s wedding last October (its never to late to get your album…). This album came with the acrylic cover showing off a fantastic metallic print. This is one of my favorite album styles and this one combined with a beautiful black leather looks really amazing.

Fall Wedding in San Diego

SD Photo Studio’s newest assistant photographer (Dwayne Andrejczuk) joined up with Chris Wood to capture this fantastic little ceremony on the first day of fall in Pacific Beach, San Diego. There was no grand reception or exquisite decorations for this wedding – just a few close friends and family and a beautiful stretch of San Diego coastline.

Poway Engagement for Vince and Vanessa

To wrap up a solid weekend of work – I met up with Vanessa and Vince at Old Poway Park.  I had met them once several months ago and I had forgotten what a great looking couple they were.  After a slow and somewhat nervous start to the session – we were all having a great time by the end.  I’m already looking forward to the wedding next May

Del Mar Wedding

This was such a spectacular wedding – it was an absolute thrill and honor to be able to photograph this picture perfect wedding for Jon and Laura. The ceremony was held at the Catholic church in Del Mar (just up the street from Powerhouse Park) while the reception was held at the clubhouse on the lake in Fairbanks Ranch. Once again – both Jon Tiffin and Chris Wood were on hand to capture the events throughout the day

Immaculata + Karl Strauss = Awesome Wedding

Last weekend Catherine and Felix invited me out to photograph their wedding at the Immaculata with the reception at Karl Strauss.  These are 2 of the coolest places in San Diego to have wedding events so I was unbelievably excited to be part of their day.  And on top of that – languages are a really fun hobby for me, and at this wedding I got to learn a few Vietnamese greetings for some out of town guests… 1 – 2 – 3 – SMILE.

Mike and Jessica were not going to be able to get their whole family in town due to busy schedules… so they decided to just invite us to the beach at Coronado.  And it was an absolutely spectacular evening on the water 🙂
