Windansea - A true gem among many on the California coastline, and a great spot for portraits.

Windansea - A true gem among many on the California coastline, and a great spot for portraits.

We have so many great locations we get to take photos and Windansea is of course a big favorite.  Located just south of downtown La Jolla, it's one of those perfect beaches that has it all; rocky formations, tide pools, sunset-facing, gorgeous features, easy parking and easy access to the beach itself.

Grooms be weary of the blindfold

Grooms be weary of the blindfold

This was a moment I absolutely had to share, it had me in stitches and it's a miracle I captured all of this before buckling over.

As weddings go, there's often a bride and a groom and a garter and a search for the garter under the bride's dress. When you add a blindfold to the groom, things can suddenly become different than they seem.

Wedding Portraits @ Huntington Beach Pier with Jason & Ariel

On a hot summer day in July, the last place I would have thought to do couple portraits was the Huntington Beach Pier. But ambition was strong with this couple so I decided to throw caution to the wind and we found ourselves under the Pier on one of the busiest days of the year. There, we proceeded to capture beautiful images. And once again, I was proven wrong...it was AWESOME!

Check & Internet fraud is real. Please read if you sell Avon products. You may be targeted!!!

We are at a point where many of us know at least one person that was the target or victim of an internet scam. The problem is, they are getting harder to spot, so it is important to be aware of how these scams are evolving, which is unfortunately in many forms.

Ljubov & Alex - Part One - Love, Marriage and Laundry Baskets

Ljubov & Alex - Part One - Love, Marriage and Laundry Baskets

As most weddings go, you don't really know what is going to happen or how ultimately good the opportunity will be to capture beautiful photos as a result of all of the wedding photographer's planets aligning:  weather, decorations, venues, lighting, luck, absolutely beautiful couples, beautiful friends and family and so on.  And then there are days when it all comes easy and turns out purely magical and it happened on November 25th, 2015 in San Diego, California.  

I would like to introduce  Alex and Ljubov from Moscow and Estonia respetively.  They invited me to photograph their intimate wedding near the airport downtown.  And as a lesson to anyone feeling you have to spend a fortune to have a beautiful wedding, think again.  This was a day of simplicity, beauty, fun and relaxation (record screech)...yes...I'm not kidding.  And for this reason I am super excited to share the story of Alex and Ljubov.     

This is Part 1 of their wedding day story, and it involves a laundry basket in the coolest way.
