#weddingphotography Planning the Ceremony | Wedding Tips
When planning the wedding ceremony, one big decision is, “What time should we start?” Because the ceremony time dictates the schedule for the rest of the day, there are several factors to consider.
1. Sunset. Sunset time is one of the most important things to consider! As a general rule, the ceremony should start well before sunset, and end at least one hour before the sun goes down. This ensures that you will still have quality light after the ceremony, which is important for romantic portraits together, as well as family photos.








































































2. Reception. Length of the reception is another thing to consider. An earlier ceremony start time gives room for a nice long party afterwards :) You’ll want to leave plenty of time to accommodate dinner, dancing, and any other traditions/event you want to include.
















































3. Venue Rules. Most venues have a mandatory end time. Your venue may also have a strict ceremony time. If your venue’s required ceremony window is less than one hour before sunset, you might want to consider doing a “first look.” This will allow the majority of the couple’s portraits and wedding party photos to be done before the ceremony, and ensure that you have beautiful photos in the best available light.






























If you have specific questions about your wedding ceremony, and how it will pertain to your photography timeline, please feel free to contact us!

#weddingphotography Rainy Wedding Day Photos
Although we can’t control the weather, we have learned to treat everything like an opportunity. Even when the forecast shifts in an unexpected direction, we choose to seize the day, whatever it may bring. If it does rain while we are photographing, we will take it and make sweet batch of lemonade :)
Especially on the wedding day, there’s something thrilling about running headfirst into the rain, and capturing the beauty of nature in unexpected ways. Once you see the potential a rainy day holds, you just might find yourself hoping for raindrops!








Kristin and Ryan possess a stunning image that few other couples have. This photograph was taken in Colorado at 5,500 elevation. Being that both our camera Kristin and Ryan's umbrella were both metal, it wasn't our brightest idea. But since we all survived, it sure made for an amazing picture. We photographed 100 frames in about 20 seconds to precisely capture this bolt of lightning.











Yang and Kaisu had shifting weather patterns on their big day, and took every photo op in stride. This resulted in a breathtaking collection of photos, like this candid shot. The beautiful, floral framing alone would have made a nice image, but the rain falling in the background really kicked it up a few notches :)























Jenn and Nick's' wedding started off with bright, golden rays of sun during their day at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club. However, an unexpected blanket of fog quickly set in. Working within these conditions, we backlit Jenn and Nick, and captured the ambience of the moment.









Want to “pour over” more images? Grab an umbrella, and check out our full gallery of beautiful rainy day wedding photos

#weddingphotography La Valencia

Highlights of La Valencia Hotel
La Valencia Hotel is the definition of vintage luxury in beautiful La Jolla, California. Also known as “The Pink Lady,” this Mediterranean style, oceanfront resort is romantic, playful and always enchanting. With it’s marble tiled hallways, hidden fire escapes, iconic pink walls and prime location above La Jolla Cove, La Valencia is one of our favorite wedding destinations to photograph, and we know its every nook and cranny.












Directly adjacent to the hotel is Cafe la Rue; a great spot for some fun photos with your wedding party.





We love to have fun with our couples before heading onto the lobby.











Shooting the same location at different times of the day results in drastically different images.





The marble floor lining the ground floor of the Cabrillo building make for some spectacular shots.





The hallway on the 9th floor of the Tower ends with a fire escape and incredible view of the Pacific.











This place is a gold mine of reflections and dramatic lighting.





The staircase leading to the upper floors of The Tower are adorned with ornate mirrors and lined with original wooden bannisters.











As soon as you step into the central courtyard you will be surrounded by lush vegetation, Spanish tiled stairwells and bright pink walls.

















Following the main path adjacent to the pool you'll arrive at a cozy landing that is lined with blue Spanish tile and signature pink walls. If you follow the stairs down you'll pass thru a gate that leads directly to La Jolla Cove.





There are several fire escapes on the outside of the hotel that offer sweeping views of La Jolla and the surrounding areas.

















We love to make use of the beautiful window light.























Some couples choose to get ready in one of the hotel's beautiful guest rooms.











The Boardroom is located on the 4th floor and has enough space for you and your bridal party.

















You can also choose to get ready in one of La Valencia's Villa Suites.











The Ceremony at La Valencia is located on a cozy landing directly above the swimming pool, and is backdropped by the Pacific.

















While one photographer focuses on the close-up intimate moments, the 2nd photographer can get step away to grab an over-all shot of the ceremony.





The walkway directly behind and above the ceremony site is another great spot to capture the festivities while showing off the spectacular view.

















The Pacific Ocean makes for a spectacular backdrop for your family photos.





One of La Valencia's biggest draws is definitely its location, just a short walk away from La Jolla Cove and the Pacific Ocean.











The green covered rocks become accessible during low tide, and make for a dramatic backdrop for our subjects.











A bride and groom always grab all the attention.





After the sun goes down and the lights come on, La Valencia takes on a more dramatic and romantic mood.





These photos were taken just outside the ballroom, meaning the bride and groom won't have to be away from their reception for long to get some memorable images.





The fire escape above Cafe laRue is great for backlit night time photos.

#weddingphotography Scripps Seaside Forum

Highlights of Scripps Seaside Forum
Located on the Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus, the Scripps Seaside Forum offers a blend of modern architecture and style that celebrates Southern California’s unrivaled coastal environment. With an unparalleled beachfront location, modern facilities, and award-winning architecture, this stunning venue offers an ideal setting for you wedding and reception. The breathtaking view and multipurpose auditorium also makes the Scripps Seaside Forum a wonderful location, and one that is sure to impress.








The back of the building offers an opportunity to photograph our newlyweds while showcasing The Forum's award winning architecture.





By stepping in closer, we can use the natural lines of the hallway to pull the eye towards our subjects.





We can use the walls and complex architecture of the Forum to naturally frame our subjects











By simply turning our couple around we get a completely different look of the same hallway.











Throwing on a longer lens and staying close to the wall results in intimate portraits.





Continuing further down the hallway, we arrive at a wide balcony with a spectacular view.





From the upstairs patio, we can take the stairs right to the front lawn.





On your way to the lawn make sure to stop on the stairs to grab some fun shots of your newlyweds

















Once at the lawn you'll have lots of room for photos of the entire wedding party with the Pacific in the background.























The stairs located at the northernmost point of the lawn will lead you right to the beach.

















During low tide, Scripps beach is a great place to pose the bride and groom for some dramatic portraits.





The mood changes during higher tide, but the opportunity for spectacular photos is always there.

















Following the beach north, you'll arrive at what is probably the most photographed location at Scripps Beach; The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier.





























After getting extended coverage of the beach, it's usually time to get the newlyweds back to the Forum for their Grand Entrance.





When the timing is right, the reflection on the ballroom sliding doors is pretty epic.





Stepping outside during the first dance can result in some really memorable photos.





The market lights above the main lawn illuminate the bride and groom.





The slotted wooden panels that line the main courtyard offer lots of opportunity to play with off camera lights.





The Forum is not only perfect for wedding photography, but for engagement and lifestyle shoots as well.











The Rose Garden, located just north of the main lawn, is a lush and colorful spot for romantic portraits.











The blue tile on this building gives photos an instant pop.





Looking north from the pier, the cliffs above La Jolla make for a spectacular backdrop.





By positioning ourselves between the cliffs and the water, we can capture a different perspective of the same scene.





During low tide, the tide pools in front of the cliffs emerge, and offer great opportunities for complex reflection shots.





Don't worry, we wont make you get in the ocean. Only if you want to :)

As seasoned wedding photographers all throughout La Jolla and San Diego, we photograph weddings at Scripps Seaside Forum frequently :) If you are considering a wedding at this venue, we are happy to talk over specific photography questions.

#weddingphotography Ultimate Skybox

Highlights of The Ultimate Skybox
Located high above the city on the top floor of East Village’s DiamondView Tower, the Ultimate Skybox (aka the Skybox at DiamondView Tower) is a stunning showcase for some of San Diego’s most breathtaking views. Overlooking Petco Park, the venue sits in the heart of Downtown, within walking distance to many of the area’s popular destinations. When planning your Ultimate Skybox wedding, we suggest reserving time for portraits during the wedding day. This way, we can take incorporate a blend of city and nature landscapes by visiting the Gaslamp District, or cross the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge for waterfront views of the San Diego Bay.
As the day transitions to night, guests can party late into the evening while admiring the venue’s mesmerizing 180-degree view of the glowing Downtown cityscape. The venue’s diverse range of unforgettable views, Metropolitan aesthetic, and proximity to the water make it a fun, unique location for any modern downtown wedding.








Known for its iconic view of Petco Park, the rooftop at the Ultimate Skybox is an intimate location that offers a wide variety of possibilities.





For a completely different look, we took Justine and Danny out during sunset to capture the beautiful city, and Point Loma in the distance.





Facing north provides a view of the Skybox itself.





When photographing, we love utilizing the modern design of the Skybox and often look for ways to incorporate the building itself into images.











The building's exterior also offers a dramatic option for photos. For the images above, we used the same location but created two completely different looks by switching focal lengths and shifting our angle.





Even on a rainy day, the Skybox has a number of locations to get creative with.





From the park, we like to head over to Petco Park on days without games. Within walking distance, the park provides lots of natural foliage as a contrast to the Downtown urban landscape in addition to an up close and personal view of Petco.

















For a classic dose of San Diego culture, Petco Park is a great location for incorporating your love of the Padres and Downtown. The park within the park also includes a a mix of local restaurants and bars with a cross between modern and classic architecture.





From the park, the streets surrounding the Ultimate Skybox offer a diverse range of colorful backgrounds with a metropolitan feel.

















While walking, we always keep our eyes out for new locations to add a more candid, casual look to things.





























With so much condensed into the area, Downtown provides an eclectic mix of classic and modern backdrops for different looks and styles.

















Just around the corner from the Ultimate Skybox is the iconic Gaslamp Quarter sign and nearby Hilton Gaslamp.























The nearby sculptures at the Convention Center also provide lots of open space and fun, natural props.





The Skybox's proximity to the water also makes it a great location for couples looking for a balance of city and waterfront views.











At night, the Skybox provides a completely different look with new colors and energy.





Beyond the city lights, the rooftop's balcony features a fireplace which acts asu00a0a fun prop with multiple ways of photographing creatively.

#weddingphotography Mt. Woodson Castle

Highlights of Mt. Woodson Castle
Nestled in the rolling hills of Ramona, and surrounded by giant oaks, Mt. Woodson Castle is a truly magical wedding venue. The castle fits in seamlessly into its surroundings thanks largely to the philosophy of the Craftsman Movement, which emphasized harmony between the individual and the environment. The entire building is constructed with materials found in the surrounding hills, including eucalyptus and redwood, and rocks hand-selected from the slopes of Mt. Woodson. The adobe bricks that form the second story walls were made at the site from the clay soils found along the drainage, and the roof tiles came from the San Gabriel Mission. With so much attention to detail, it’s no wonder that the entire property is a treasure trove of amazing photo spots.








Looking into the suite from the sun room, we see a more candid scene of our bride while she gets ready for the day.





Standing in the doorway, we get a beautifully lit view of the bridal suite.

















The sun room is adjacent to the bridal suite, and is perfect for soft window light portraits.





The sun room is big enough to fit the bride along with her entourage.

















The groom's room is also spacious and has great window light.







































































The windmill next to the castle is iconic of this venue.











Looking back at the castle from the pond w can capture a different perspective of the windmill





Just a short walk awayu00a0around the back of the castle is a tee-box overlooking the golf course. It is a perfect spot for sunset photos.

















Just down the hill from the castle, next to the pond, stands a giant oak.

















At night, the market lights above the main lawn provide great ambiance for romantic shots.

















There are several unique and stylized rooms that reflect the mood of the castle, and offer great opportunity for some cool portraits.

#weddingphotography Grand Tradition

Highlights of Grand Tradition
One of our favorite spots just outside San Diego is the all-inclusive Grand Tradition. We have photographed many weddings at Grand Tradition over the years, and have likely covered every corner :) Located in Fallbrook, CA, the property’s 30 acres of rolling green hills and tropical gardens has something for everyone, including two main venue options onsite. Here are examples of each:
Arbor Terrace
For those seeking a more laid-back, paradise vibe to their day, we recommend the property’s Arbor Terrace and Pavilion. Inspired by the aesthetics of Hana, Hawaii, the Terrace is set against a gorgeous waterfall backdrop, and decorated with paths covered in beautiful flowers. The Pavilion, where receptions are held, offers features such as the Hospitality Fountain, which is great for photos. There is also a cozy outdoor fireplace, which is a nice comfortable spot to enjoy a relaxing moment with guests.


























Couples tying the knot at the Arbor Terrace have the option of exchanging vows in front of the property's main waterfall feature























Come nightfall, the waterfalls at Arbor Terrace take on a different appearance once illuminated by the area's uplighting.











During Tracy and Ryan's wedding, we wanted to showcase the abundance of greenery surrounding the couple and their bridal party. By placing everyone on a bridge across the waterfall and using a telephoto lens, we were able to zoom in on the bridal party while also showing the expanse of space.











The various bridges around Arbor Terrace not only offer great views of the site's multiple ponds and waterfalls but also serve as a unique prop. For Naomi and Luke's wedding (above), we let the guys have a little bit of fun pretending to throw Luke overboard for a hilarious, candid shot.





While navigating the many winding paths at Arbor Terrace, couples can get lost in their own private jungle along the way.





Following Silvia and Edwin's wedding ceremony, we wanted to capture the warm glow of Sunset coming in through the trees during Golden Hour. By placing the Bride and Groom in the midst of everything and using a zoom lens, we were able to focus on the intimacy of their embrace and create a romantic feeling.





Heading back to the wedding reception, we like to take couples by the Hospitality Fountain which can be used in a variety of creative ways.





With Jaclyn and Charlie, we had the couple sit on a bench in front of the fountain while photographing from behind. Shooting through the cascading water we were able to capture a creative bokeh effect and add to the emotion of the moment.





























Once ready to party the night away, guests will be invited to the tented reception at the Pavilion.























Directly behind the pavilion's tented reception lies an intimate brick fireplace where guests can relax and chat throughout the night.





















Beverly Mansion
If your style is a bit more traditional and classical, our suggestion is the Beverly Mansion, a classic Victorian estate that overlooks the property’s idyllic heart-shaped lake. Ceremonies at the Beverly Mansion are held outdoors by the gazebo, where couples have the option of being brought out by horse and carriage. It definitely has a storybook feel!
After exchanging vows, guests can dance the night away under massive Swarovski crystal chandeliers. And to end the evening, nothing beats a fun and impressive sparkler grand exit, which is sure to leave your guests in awe :)








The lawn behind the Beverly Mansion is a great way to feature both the mansion as well as a stunning sunset.











With so many nooks and crannies, we love finding new ways to highlight the classical architecture of the mansion into photos.











In this photo, we adjusted our lens towards the roof to accentuate the leading lines and draw your eye towards Gina and Brandon for a creative, stylized portrait.











The bridal suite at Beverly Mansion continues the venue's overall Victorian aesthetic with regal furniture and intricate windows.

















The groom's suite offers the guys a moment to kick back and relax before the ceremony with a good ol' fashioned game of pool.





One of the mansions most unique features is the horse-drawn carriage that couples can be transported in during their outdoor wedding ceremony, overlooking the property's serene heart-shaped lake.



































For a creative angle, we placed the carriage in our foreground and posed the bride and groom in the center as they leaned in for a kiss. To add an extra flair, we placed our flash just above the couple's shoulders to create a starburst effect.

















Just beyond the Beverly Mansion is the venue's picturesque heart-shaped pond which overlooks the ceremony site.











Photographing across the pond from the gazebo provides a more wide angle perspective of the water that features the waterfall and garden in the background.











Just feet away from the Beverly Mansion is the Compass Garden which can be used to host cocktail hours or wedding ceremonies, as well as being a beautiful background for portraits.

















Conveniently located between the Beverly Mansion and Arbor Terrace, the Compass Garden offers a variety of textured doors and backgrounds to offset the rest of the property's tropical and classic aesthetic.

















As night approaches, the lights of the Beverly Mansion illuminate the sky, and add a beautiful glow to balance the evening sunset.





We love taking couples around the mansion at night for a different look that what the daytime provides.

















Grand Tradition is also one of the few venues in San Diego that allows couples the option of a Sparkler Grand Exit to wrap up their day of celebration.

#weddingphotography Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina

Highlights of The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
The Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is nestled between Downtown San Diego, Seaport Village and San Diego Bay. The Marriott itself is a tropical inspired venue, landscaped with palm trees, ferns and waterfalls, against the backdrop of an urban jungle. Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina combines luxury and modern elegance with professional hosts and excellent services. The chic interior design combined with the proximity of the outdoor landmarks will leave no shortage of interesting settings for portraits.




















By moving closer to the edge of the rooftop, the trees and the pool of the Children's Garden are revealed, adding more to visual elements.





Lined with grand windows, the lobby is has a sophisticated feel. We made sure to showcase nice detail of the outside skyline/palms of downtown San Diego, as well indoors of Emilee as she admired the view.





On level 1 of the South Tower, is a snazzy lounge area. We used the area to shoot wide, allowing separation between the couple for a stylish portrait of the two of them in this image.





Upon the entrance of the party tent, The Coronado Terrace gives access to a rooftop, which we used to isolate the the city buildings neighboringu00a0the Gaslamp Quarter and cloudy skies for a more urban feel.





Along the parking lot entrance is a wall garnished with vines. We cropped for plenty of head room so show the grandness of the wall and the diamond design trimmed into the vines.





The Coronado Terrace possess little traffic for distraction free backgrounds, big sky views and features beautiful reflections along the spectacular structure of the Marriott's south tower.





By continuing up the path from the diamond vine wall to the side of the Convention Center, we reached a window to gather Aileen and Jerry with their wedding party.





Rather than showing off the cool architecture, in this image we used a long lens to soften the background. Our goal was showcase the couple in a more natural environment.





The walls of the fitness center are made of a back lit, frost like glass giving evidence of activity behind them with contrast to the focus on what lies in front of the walls. We placed Marion and Geno in front of the walls to give the feeling that they are in a world of their own where time stands still.





With this large group of groomsmen, we used the broad windows and wide space that the North Tower offers.



























We continued on in the lounge area for this bridal party of 19, using the furniture to stagger the height of the couples.























We used the awning of the entryway for the Coronado Terrace to hang the brides dress against the reflection of cloudy skies.





Neutral colors and modern elements play a theme throughout the interior of the hotel. We placed the happy couple in the lobby elevator of the South Tower and captured the moment as the doors were closing. We highlighted the groom with a solo portrait in front of the wall of lights that lead to the elevator.





The stairways, accessed in between the two towers, have a clean, high key design and are almost monochromatic.u00a0(image left) u00a0The stairs are also brightly lit, as they are directly against floor to ceiling windows. Just before entering the lobby doors, to the left is a shell colored, textured tile wall that contrasts the the black reflective pathway it stands on.













































































We used one of the spotting scopes stationed along the walking path to create a story with Yvette and Daniel's engagement session.c





















































Seaport Village is just a stones throw from the hotel and can be accessed by exiting through the back property.





Settled in the north point of Seaport Village's shops is Looff Carousel, where we like to show a our subjects a good time, with our camera's ready to catch the action of course.





The Harbor House, a restaurant off of Kettner blvd., that sits upon a pond with a rustic footbridge. We photographed wide for this environment to create an image that appears to be a world away from the bay that is just on the other side.





We like to incorporate a couple's interests into their photos, so the Fudge Factory is the perfect place to lead a couple with a sweet tooth and adds vibrant color to their portfolio.





The Tuna Harbor Dockside Market plays host to lobster cages. We love the idea of using this achieve an background that is different and interesting.





For Ruby and Shaun, we placed them so they are surrounded by the graphic pattern created by the steps of the Convention Center's north building.





Downtown is less than a hop, skip and jump away, offering an urban balance to the waterfront environment.











For a lush green setting, such as in Hannah and Wesley's engagement photos, there is a community garden along the trolley tracks, just past Front Street.





The Gaslamp Quarter and Convention Center Trolley stations are also a short distance from the hotel if you choose to venture out a little further.

#weddingphotography U.S. Grant

Highlights of the U.S. Grant
The U.S. Grant is a San Diego icon that ties together the aesthetics of past and future. A national landmark located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, the hotel was built in 1910 by the son of Ulysses S. Grant. The venue’s architecture possesses a Gatsby-esque, Art Deco-style rejuvenated with a modern charm. For weddings, the U.S. Grant offers many options, with couples being able to tie the knot in the venue’s most requested ceremony venue, the Crystal Ballroom. From there, the reception is often held in the Bivouac Ballroom, a known speakeasy during the time of Prohibition.
The building’s interior also exudes a larger-than-life presence with its luxurious crystal chandeliers, empire-style furnishings and regal marble floors decorating the property throughout. With its ornate architecture and bold facade, the US Grant building offers a number of different backgrounds for a classic look.














During Kamisha and Cecil's wedding day (above left) we used the iconic corner of the building to feature the hotel's sign. Framed in between the signs and the lamp posts, we loved the symmetry at play for a fun, stylized portraitu00a0of this duo.









































































































































Noticing an empty boardroom near the ceremony site, we wanted to take advantage of the US Grant's interior architecture on Janna and Nika's wedding day. To separate the couple from the dark walls and create a pop of contrast, we placed a light placed behind them and pointed it upwards to illuminate the rest of the room.















































Outside, the Downtown area has plenty to offer those wanting au00a0more complete metropolitan look to their day.





Adjacent to the US Grant sits Horton Plaza which offers a number of fun, playful backgrounds to offset the urban appeal of Downtown. On Bethlene and Brent's wedding day, we placed the couple at the center of the plaza'su00a0water park and framed our composition to give the illusion of water falling all around them for an artistic portrait.

















Once the sun sets,u00a0the streets areu00a0transformed into a display of neon as the lights illuminate the cityscape. During this time, the U.S. Grant takes on a completely unique look thanu00a0the daytime with its artistic display of color on the building's facade at night.

#weddingphotography Green Gables Wedding Estate

Highlights of Green Gables Wedding Estate
Tucked away in the hills of San Marcos, this English garden inspired wedding venue is a treasure trove of interesting backdrops and romantic settings. This turn-of-the-century historic landmark estate is set in total seclusion, nestled among a towering forest that dates back well over 100 years.
A day at Green Gables typically begins in the bridal suite inside of the 1890’s schoolhouse. Here, the bride can apply her finishing touches, put on her gown, and relax for a moment before walking down the aisle. Enjoy this gallery of recent photos captured by our studio at Green Gables Wedding Estate.




















The big windows in the suite are a great source of soft light in the room.































































































If you continue to walk around the schoolhouse you will find a large shaded lawn that features a rope swing and enough room to photograph even the largest wedding party.







































































One of the more iconic locations at Green Gables is the 1951 Ford Truck. This vintage piece of Americana is a perfect backdrop for bridal parties and fun photos of the newlyweds.



































Just past the truck, following a winding road away from the main venue, youu2019ll come to a more secluded area of the property that is perfect for some intimate portrait of the bride and groom.

















The gazebo that is used as the altar during the ceremony can also be used as the backdrop for formal wedding parties or romantic coupleu2019s photos of the new Bride and Groom.























After sunset the entire venue comes alive with large market lights and tiny twinkling lights. These make for a magical backdrop for some awesome night photos.
