Barona Casino Wedding

Nate and Jasmine {Married}

I helped second shoot this breathtaking wedding with Austin Chesser a little while back and wanted to post some of my favorites. Nate and Jasmine are an amazing couple and they had their wedding at the Barona Casino in San Diego. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect when I found out the wedding was at a casino but my initial assumptions were definitely wrong! The ceremony took place on a gorgeous golf course and the weather was my absolute favorite to shoot in. Wispy white cirrus clouds drifted overhead and, as the sun set, exploded into vibrant hues of gold and red. It was one of the most amazing portrait sessions I’ve photographed! Since I was second shooting I was only focusing on certain shots so this post doesn’t portray a complete wedding, just mostly the bride and portraits:

San Juan Capistrano Family Photography

I photographed the Smith family a couple weeks ago and had a blast running around the Los Rios Historical District in San Juan Capistrano. We had some beautiful golden afternoon light and got some fun candids and portraits. Here are my favorites:

Austin and Nao {Married}

I had the privilege of shooting my Uncles wedding a couple weekends ago. Austin and Nao first met a few years ago when she to visit Southern California from Japan. They developed a relationship and kept in touch every day and Skyped as much as possible. Austin flew out there to meet her family and travel around the country and she then came out here shortly after. Last summer, Austin popped the big question at one of Nao’s favorite places, Disneyland! She moved out here a couple weeks before the wedding and her family came out soon after to celebrate their big day. It was a bit cold and windy, being January, but we got some fun portraits in and had a fun night filled with family and friends.  They had their reception in Apple Valley, California.  Here are some of my photographs from the wedding day:
