San Diego Wedding Photographer // Jay + Sara

As evidenced by their e-session, Jay + Sara are pretty awesome and from the moment I met then, I was excited for their wedding.  So I knew I was in for a treat when I showed up at Sara’s parents’ home to start the day.  Throughout the day, I traveled from Lakeside to South Park to Balboa Park to the Admiral Kidd Club, but the miles were totally worth it as I shot some of my favorite images I’ve ever created.  The day was filled with so much love from the bride and groom, their families and their friends.  As a special surprise, I discovered that Sara’s “Favorite Aunt Maggie” was actually my 3rd grade teacher!  Everyone was so sweet, that by the time the reception was underway, I felt like I was one of the family.

Venue: Admiral Kidd Club

Music: Vince “DJ Phreek” Pham

Sara + Jay’s wedding was an amazing way to start the new year.  It set the bar high as far as weddings go, from the beautiful weather (in January, even!!), to the gorgeous locations we took photos, to the giddy happiness everyone felt just watching the bride and groom together.  I can’t wait to show the rest of the wedding, but in the meantime, here is a teaser I just couldn’t resist posting!  And three cheers to my second shooter, Helene!  She is awesome and I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun without her. :)

Happy New Year to You and Yours!

I’m doing my favorite thing ever and ringing in the new year with my nieces and nephews.  Even better, we are at a cabin in the snow!  Hope you are enjoying this special time as much as I am. :)

Happy New Year!  2010 is going to be the best year ever!
