mindy + cameron engagement

Mindy and Cameron booked me for their wedding over the phone from Chicago so I never had a chance to meet them until today. Although I’ve always wanted to visit Chicago but never had a chance, I was fortunate that they flew out to San Diego to meet with all the vendors for their wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado later this year.

While they were both here, we managed to schedule an engagement portrait session in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego.

We had a great time taking advantage of the endless possibilities downtown.  Mindy and Cameron did great and I can’t wait until their wedding this fall.

vanessa + michelle

This was the first time I had the opportunity to photograph a commitment ceremony and I have to say it was amazing.

Vanessa and Michelle have been together for 15 years and decided to share their commitment ceremony with friends and family. The story of their lives together is very compelling. It was great to see how much their family has accepted them.

The event took place at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park. In spite of the stormy, rainy weather before the day of the ceremony, the weather that day was perfect. There was no shortage of beautiful locations in the Friendship Garden and the Organ Pavilion. We got lucky that it had been raining earlier since a graduation ceremony at the Organ Pavilion was canceled so we had the place almost to ourselves. How convenient!

Here’s a link to their slideshow.

cabo

Every year, our family takes a vacation down to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Although it can be tricky scheduling a vacation amongst all my weddings, we seem to manage to make it down there in May most years. It’s great going back to the same place each year at the same time since it’s something our whole family looks forward to each year.

So if you’re getting married in Cabo, schedule it for May and I can shoot it without any additional travel fees!

This was the first year with three kids so it was a little different. Surprisingly travel with three kids and two weeks worth of luggage was easier than expected.

We basically went swimming every day and spent many mornings building sand castles on the beach.

Fortunately I had wireless internet access so I was still able to do my e-mails and even make phone calls via Skype. As much as this is supposed to be a vacation, I can’t be away form my computer!

We always try to get a few family portraits done while we’re in Cabo. I just LOVE shooting photos at the Westin Regina Hotel:

Here’s our villa in Cabo:

Just kidding! The villa above is the owner’s house. They are the architects and owners of Club Cascadas. You can stay there for only $3500/night!

Hair braiding is a must in Cabo:

And so is swimming, even for Jackie (please excuse the point-and-shoot camera):

But at least the point-and-shoot camera is waterproof:

Although we won’t win any sand castle competitions, I think we did pretty good this year with our limited tools:

This sea serpent was our favorite:
