RUFINA + RAY, AN INTIMATE RUSTIC SAN DIEGO SEASIDE WEDDING – PART 2, SAN DIEGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Rufina & Ray had one of the most beautiful intimate wedding’s I photographed in 2012. At a stunning private estate, overlooking a beach side lagoon surrounded by just close family and friends they said “I Do”.

Not to sound like a creepy stalker photographer – but if I were planning on a wedding re-do I would TOTALLY have copied everything Rufina planned. The lace dress, the succulents and rustic vintage decor, it was full of my kind of style and I was totally in love from the moment I walked through the door.

Rufina and Ray are also the kind of easy going couple that I love to photograph – so easy going in fact that we almost all ended up arrested. Wait .. what?! Rufina wanted photo’s on a very off limits private lagoon and the only way to get there was to hike across some train tracks ( also illegal) and down a steep mountain .. so of course we did what any photographer would do who loves your clients – I said “let’s go”! . Ray carried Rufina ( super hero hubby) so she did not need to ruin her shoes, and we did the hike until we ended up in the Lagoon. After 30 minutes of INCREDIBLE shots we started to head back and came face to face with a VERY unhappy cop – who escorted us off the property while contemplating how he was going to deal with us. Thankfully he decided that ruining a brides wedding day was bad luck so he let us go :)

Rufina & Ray – Thank you so much for sharing such a special day with me, it was an honor to capture something so special. I am so excited to see what exciting adventures you two take together!

Meet Baby Jack!

In case you have noticed I have taken a little blogging break for the last week, because on June 14th I gave birth to our son Jack.  In the last year I have been working on this very special personal project and as most of my clients know ( because really it is hard to hide a giant belly) I have been cooking up this little baby boy while hiking through weeds for engagement sessions, shooting weddings and attempting to show boudoir clients how to look sexy ( harder to demonstrate when sporting the baby bump).  I worked right up until the end of my pregnancy because I love what I do and I figured my son better know that sooner than later!  I will be back in the end of July in just a few short weeks because life has lots of moments that need to be captured!

So let me introduce you to my little guy, the hubby and I are very much in love with him. And for those of you who know me and my love for my fur babies – they are quite taken with him too 🙂
