Donna + Tom | Coronado Beach Elopement

Donna was a beautiful bride, and I was so excited to be there to see her tie the knot with her “Mr. Wonderful,” Tom. Donna and I have been friends for about ten years, since I stood her up for an interview with Marion’s Childcare. She was gracious and patient and quickly became one of the best caregivers EVER. She has been a huge blessing in my life, and I was thrilled that she asked me to photograph her “small elopement” with a few of her closest friends and family (read: massive mob of people). We headed across the way to the Bluewater Boathouse Restaurant afterward for the reception, and the evening was perfect all around.

Splashy Beach Session | Coronado Beach Photography

Sometimes the perfect light beckons me . . . all this glowing goodness, just calling to be immortalized before it slips away . . . and then a rogue wave comes and takes out the family I’m photographing. 😮
We may have gotten a *little* wet during that session, but this amazing family (with a senior heading off to college) took it in stride and I’m really excited about the way their session is turning out! Such a fun bunch of happy people!!

La Jolla Beach Photography | San Diego Photographer

I have to admit that the La Jolla shoreline is not my number one choice for a beach session, merely because the contingency plans for full sun or high tide conditions there are not as good as those elsewhere in the county (like my two favorite beaches!). HOWEVER, this client has a special place in her heart for La Jolla, and so it really needed to be there! When I showed up to Windansea and found the perfect tide AND the perfect cloud cover . . . and then the client showed up with kiddos dressed in these bold, fun colors, I was so glad we were at La Jolla! I got SO WET doing this session, and it was SO much fun!!

Back to the Beach! | Hotel del Coronado Photographer

I had an almost three-week break from beach sessions, so it was fun to get back out on the sand last week! I had the perfect clients to get me back into the swing of things, too, because they were fun, happy, and adventurous! Even though it was chilly (it WAS January, after all!), they were happy to put their toes in the water, and their clothing selections were spot on for the sunset on that clear evening. Looking forward to many more fun beach sessions in 2017!
