Nautical stylized shoot | San Diego wedding photographer

While I focus on newborns and families, I find myself drawn to the excitement and energy of weddings as well. I also love to socialize with other photographers. So when Karen Stott offered a  Pursuit 31 photography workshop with a stylized wedding shoot here in San Diego, I was so excited to get involved!We started off in a basic workshop going over our goals, passions and fears. This group of women were so supportive and encouraging, I’m sure many of us will stay in touch as we grow in our business and personal lives. With several yummy meals provided by Keary Cheney (another local photographer and great vegan cook) we were off to the Oceanside Marina to capture some great wedding shots with some talented models.

Lukas and Suzy VanDyke were not only our great models for the day, but also wonderfully talented photographers who were super willing and helpful to us as we posed and set up our shots. After shooting all the details, and capturing some great shots in the honeymoon suite at the Oceanside marina Inn, we trekked through the dirt, over a wall, through stinky sand under the overpass to find the perfect light in a fun location. To our surprise our models jumped into the cold water and we got some fun unique images!

Make sure to check out the fabulous vendors who made the session possible, I listed them at the bottom of this post! Enjoy!

And of course a fun behind the scenes shot for Lukas, as he gets “the shot” of his gorgeous wife on the rocks!
