On Saturday, I had the honor and privilege of photographing Kris & Trina’s intimate backyard ceremony in San Diego, California. Their neighborhood is nestled in the adorable pocket of Normal Heights. It hits home to me because we’re practically neighbors! I loved EVERYTHING about this wedding day except I had to leave at the end of the day.

The ceremony was intimate with only a handful of their closest family and friends in attendance.  The two brides looked absolutely stunning as they walked in together, said their I do’s and sealed it with a kiss, a toast with champagne and a quick & happy dance! Yes, I teared up! Once the ceremony and portrait formalities concluded – we drove north to one of their friends homes in Encinitas, CA. It was lovely to see them greeted by a backyard full of their friends and family. Seriously – so much beauty and love all in one place melts my heart.

I am so excited to share the highlights from their day! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them! Cheers!

Congratulations Newlyweds!
