A few months ago I 2nd shot for Arvin of Open Glass Studio and created these beauties that I couldn’t resist sharing.
Also, I just couldn’t decide, black & white or color. What do you think? I LOVE both!!!
Kristen and Tony married in October on a beautiful day which started at the Hilton Torrey Pines.
The florals were gorgeous!
She shared some sweet moments with her mom and two bridesmaids:
Kristen looked so gorgeous with her Grecian-inspired headpiece and dress:
Meanwhile Tony was getting all gussied up for the day:
Then it was off to his first look with Kristen:
This courtyard was the BEST spot for their portraits. No one was around, so we had total privacy and the light was AMAZING!
It’s so obvious that these two are perfect for each other. They constantly smiled while at each other’s side.
Again, I mean, come on, look at how perfect Kristen looked in her grecian gown.
LOVE! These leaves were the perfect backdrop for these two cuties:
After the portraits, it was time to get MARRIED, so we headed to Torrey Pines State Reserve.
Their ceremony site was gorgeous! Perched atop an outlook with views all around it was the best setting for a wedding.
These images of them in their ceremony area are some of my many many faves of the day:
Then it was time to party, so we headed to the San Diego Botanic Garden.
But before the party started we make good use of the last few minutes of golden light:
The food by Barley Mash was sooo pretty and tasty!
Again, the florals were perfect. Cherry Blossom Floral Design did a beautiful job.
Kristen & Tony met in Antarctica, so of course, they had to have an earth cake with Antarctica atop it.
Tony’s grandma was a hit on the dance floor.
Their grand exit was a blast!
CONGRATS you two!!!!

Chris & Tricia are friends of mine and I’m so excited that they’re expecting a little boy in January.
Tricia looks beautiful:
Thanks so much for having me document this special time. I can’t wait to meet the little guy.
Kassie & Barney tied the knot on a beautiful sunny day in La Jolla.
Kassie is such a gorgeous bride:
These two had a sweet first look:
Gorgeousness. . .
These two are such a cute couple!
These portraits against the cement are some of my faves.
The weather was so perfect with the few clouds in the sky.
Barney built this arbor for their ceremony:

When Priya contacted me about photographing her son’s naming ceremony I was pretty excited. It’s always fun to photograph new events and to be part of a family’s special day.
Rancho Valenica is a lovely place and was a great setting for their son’s special day.
Floral Design by Ari did a lovely job with the centerpieces:
We started off the day with portraits of their sweet family:
He is the most chill laid back baby EVER. Lucky parents
Salil narrated the ceremony to let everyone know what was happening.
First the women blessed Priya and her children:
Then the two grandmas passed a rock (I think) around the cradle to absorb all the bad luck.
Then all the women joined in and sang some songs. And his name was whispered to him.
The day ended with a magician for the kids. They LOVED his show.
