bernardo winery wedding // san diego wedding photographer

I have known Melissa for over half of our lives - she became one of my sister's best friends waaaay back in the day and she's been a really special person (along with her family) to my entire family.

She is one of the few people in the world whose wedding I would happily photograph three weeks after having a baby. ;) She's also one of the few people who would so happily let me wear my baby through the whole wedding and plan her schedule around when I needed nursing breaks. In short, she's wonderful, and in Taylor she found a man who recognizes how wonderful she is, and adores her for it.

This was not only a gorgeous and relaxed wedding with my favorite set of guests (my entire family and lifelong family friends!), it was a most wonderful union to witness, as these two are perfectly suited to one another. Taylor and Melissa, here's to many, many happy years together! You love each other so well.

Luce Loft Wedding // Downtown San Diego // Natalie + James

I'm so excited to finally be sharing some highlights from this November wedding with you all! From a bride and groom totally over the moon to be marrying one another, to a gorgeous gown and florals, a stunning sapphire ring, probably the best wedding food/beer/cocktails I've ever had (and I've had some pretty great stuff!), a super fun venue, great music, and family and friends more than ready to celebrate - this wedding was fantastic. Natalie and James, heres to many years of happiness ahead of you two. It was a joy to be part of such a special day!
