Hello! My name is Justin and I am so thrilled to have you here!
I am a wedding photographer based out of Southern California with a love for San Diego and Orange Country. As a wedding photographer it has been such a privilege and honor to make new friends, geek out over the same things, and turn moments into memories. I can't wait to take this journey with you! So make yourself at home and take a look around!
New year, new me! Aaaaand it’s already February and here I am blogging a gorgeous wedding from JUNE. 2018 was filled with SO many amazing weddings + couples. I am so blessed and honored to have captured their wedding days and I am SO excited to share more of them!
I’m starting with one of my favorites from last year!
Jane + Daniel are so stinkin cute and some of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. As a photographer, I make it a point to make my clients feel comfortable, but as soon as we met, I was the one put at ease but how kind, chill and funny they are.
Their wedding took place in La Canada Flintridge, California and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. Jane’s bridesmaids and Daniel’s groomsmen added to the chill and welcoming vibe as we all hung out and laughed while they were getting ready.
Alrighty. Can we just thank the Lord that Jane had two wedding dresses?! One for the ceremony and one for the reception. Right before her first look with Daniel, Jane’s gown completely ripped and she wasn’t able to zip up the dress. THIS is a perfect example of how chill and relaxed these two are. Jane didn’t seemed stressed at all and put on her second dress like a champ! Luckily she was able to be sewn into her original dress in time for the ceremony. How’s that for a feel good hallmark movie moment?
Not gonna lie, it was a little hot outside. But we were too distracted by how stunning Jane looked walking down that aisle.
After the newlyweds said their I Do’s, we stole them away for a bit to take more wedding photos of just the two of them.
I loved the deep rich tones they chose for their wedding color palette. Can we just talk about these stunning center pieces by The Loved Co.? I’m always left so in awe of Tiffany’s work.
So much joy and laughter. This was them all. night.I gotta say, I was definitely jealous of their friends’ dance moves. I just looked through my view finder in shame knowing that I didn’t (and still don’t) possess such moves.
Jane + Daniel. Thank you. I am so happy to have met you and made two new friends in the process. You are both so awesome and I’m so excited to see where life takes you next!
