Maribel and James's Downtown San Diego Elopement

Maribel and James's San Diego Court House Elopement 2018 (5 of 25).jpg

This past Thursday I had the honor of capturing images for James and Maribel. These two love birds have some amazing children (ranging from 19 all the way down to 3) and a lifetime of love, so it was amazing being able to share this day with their sweet family. Maribel's original wedding plans were for something more traditional, but when her eldest babe went into the Navy she knew she might need to do something different to make sure her whole family was there for their special day.  

So to ensure James jr. made it to their big day, this sweet couple decided to move their wedding from Oklahoma, to San Diego, where James Jr. is currently stationed. Having a son in the military may have complicated this couples wedding day, but they wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Congratulations guys! I can't wait to share the rest of the images with you but hopefully you love these sneak peaks!

Cunningham Family Session in Presidio Park, San Diego


We are in the midst of full blown "June Gloom" here in San Diego, and while that's probably a disappointment for most people around town, I love it! It's like having a giant white reflector in the sky that produces some of the most beautiful light. And luckily for me I have great clients who decide to brave the cold and drizzle and get out there and take some family photos.

Meet the Cunningham's!  I was lucky enough to connect with this Boss Babe and her sweet family through fellow lady entrepreneurs (Suzette owns and operates Elephant Trunk Up) , and was so excited when Suzette asked if I would be able to do a family session with her family. This was such a fun session and it went by in a flash because they are all so photogenic! I loved being in the park early this morning because we had it all to ourselves.  

I hope you guys love these sneak peaks and I can't wait to share the rest with you! They are all so amazing. :)
