Little Italy

Brianna and Peter's San Diego Elopement in Little Italy

I am soo thankful for Instagram and Hashtags. It led these two amazing people my way and I could not be more grateful.  Meet Brianna and Peter!  They are not from San Diego, so it must have been a bit unnerving to come to a city, invite a stranger to witness and document their elopement. But I am so glad they did!

We had a great morning in Little Italy. I was a little worried cause when I arrived there was plenty of fog since we were right up against the water but the sun came out and warmed us all up. We had the first appointment of the day, and it was quiet and peaceful at the San Diego County Administration Center. Peter is such a jokester, he woke us all up and kept us all energized the whole time! And Brianna was sweet and loving, and just so excited to be marrying the man of her dreams. They were a perfect balance of each other and you can see that in all these sweet images. 

We had a tasty breakfast over at Lofty Coffee (seriously go check their new spot out so cool) in little Italy. And then they set off to start the new day as husband and wife! I am so excited for you both and I hope you love this teaser! I had the best time, as you could tell from all my bouncing around that day! 

Congratulations and love to you both!

Claudia and Stephen's San Diego Elopement

It is so amazing how clients find you sometimes. Luckily for me my mom was keeping track of local events on Nextdoor and responded to a post looking for a photographer. And next thing you know I get to meet these two darling people. Meet Claudia and Stephen and they had the sweetest elopement downtown at the San Diego Recorder Office. 

I seriously love this building with the soft pink art deco architecture, and the golden elevator doors. And it looks even better next to a beautiful couple deeply in love. Claudia and Stephen, Thank you! For trusting me and for being so fun and wonderful. I loved being with you on your big day, and I wish you all the best. You have each other, so I know you'll have a wonderful life. 

Much love,

Taryn

Festival Style at Stroll in Little Italy

There were some seriously good vibes at the Stroll a few weeks ago when Katie (the owner) hosted a Pre-Coachella Sale. From the stunning festival attire, Crazy beautiful flower crowns by La Belle Bloom , Awesome polish changes by Girl on the Go! Night Spa , not to mention champs and tasty treats! It was out of control, amazing! Check out some of the fun images of the night below.

 

Did I mention the seriously tasty snacks? I am now obsessed with Rock Candy as decor on cupcakes and cakes <3! Plus I can't pass up a tasty cheese board with fig crackers....like ever.  And there was pink Champange! Ahhh! too much goodness.

 The incredibly talented Claudia Cruz of La Belle Bloom was making stunning Flower crowns. I mean the pictures below barely do them justice. If you follow me on instragam then you saw one of the stunning flower crowns I purchased.  I bought a few and depleted her stock but she hoped right up and started making more with some of the beautiful blooms she brought with her. I can't wait till the next time I need flowers, or a flower crown because I will be heading straight to this Little Italy gem.I am so excited I get to work with these inspirational San Diego Lady Bosses, and hopefully we have another event together soon. :)
