Allyson & Shane | Wedding Album

Allyson and Shane's gorgeous wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle is officially printed in the most gorgeous blush wedding album! You can see more of their wedding here. I love, love, love these full-grain leather books. The images print directly over the center seam and bleed clear to the edges and the lay-flat design makes it easy to share around the coffee table with friends and family! I'm so excited to have this album delivered to these lovely clients just in time for the holidays!

Elly & Aaron | Shelter Island Engagement Session

Holy cuteness! Elly and Aaron are as sweet as can be, and their engagement session proves it!

Elly and Aaron are incredible musicians and I've had the pleasure of singing with both of them on many occasions. In fact, it was their mutual love of music that brought these two together! Elly and Aaron got to know each other while singing in San Diego's professional choir, SACRA/PROFANA. It has been such a joy to watch these two amazing people fall in love, and now, to get to share in the telling of their story!

Because San Diego has been such an integral part of their story, they wanted to include the skyline of America's Finest City in their engagement photos. So, we headed to Shelter Island for what would be one of my very favorite engagement sessions to date! Elly and Aaron are affection, kind, funny, and an absolute joy to spend time with. This made photographing their engagement session all kinds of fun!

Elly asked me if I had a favorite image from their session, and I honestly can't pick one! They're just too stinking cute! Maybe you can pick a favorite! Enjoy!

Allyson & Shane | Mt. Woodson Castle

I knew I was going to have a blast photographing Allyson and Shane's wedding when I asked what they were most looking forward to about the wedding and they responded, "the food and the dancing". Yes, please!!!

Allyson and Shane met in the freshman dorms at UCSD, and although she instantly thought Shane was cute, it would be a year and a half before they started dating. Allyson's deep love of Disney quickly squeezed its way into the relationship as she convinced Shane to buy an annual pass to Disneyland, where he would later propose on their second anniversary!

During the wedding day, these two were all smiles! Their love for each other is so apparent. As we were photographing portraits after the first look, I asked Shane to look toward the camera. His response? "But want to look at Allyson. She's so beautiful!"

After a beautiful ceremony, officiated by their freshman resident assistant, we went for a stroll under the oak trees where we photographed some seriously swoon-worthy portraits. And, of course, the dinner and dancing that followed did not disappoint!
