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.

Coronado Engagement Photography | Hotel del Coronado Portrait Photographer

What a sweet engaged couple!! Rachel was visiting Coronado while Phil is stationed here, and they were game for whatever crazy beach photo ideas I had to throw at them. By the end of their session, we were completely drenched (and I was considering an underwater housing for my camera), and had visited the sunken ship way down the beach. A memorable session, indeed!

Dancing Through Life | San Diego Beach Engagement Photography

When I interviewed Amy last year and she joined the Marion’s Childcare team, I was enthralled with her stories of being a professional ballerina and also traveling to Europe to work as an au pair. Little did I know that her next exciting story would include wedding bells! Seven years ago on January 2, Amy began wearing a purity ring, and on January 2 of this year, during the fireworks at Disneyland, her fiance Jim replaced it with a beautiful diamond.   In preparation for their wedding coming up in August, we met on Coronado for their engagement session. It was great to meet Jim, and the Sandcastle Man’s Cinderella Castle was perfect for a ring shot!
