Jamie is orginially from San Diego, but life goals have taken her to Reno for the time being. Mike is a naval pilot, so unfortunately they have had to have a long distance relationship. Their love has made it so the distance did not matter. As Jamie is from San Diego and Mike has spent quite a bit of time here, they decided to have their wedding in America's finest city. We started the wedding day at the Westin in Downtown San Diego for some prep photos and portraits around the hotel. After shooting with the gals for a while, I met up with Mike and the guys for some fun portraits around the lobby. Next, we headed up to the University of San Diego for their catholic wedding service at the beautiful Immaculata. After a beautiful service, everyone welcomed some photos in the cool breeze and shade of this beautiful church as it was a hot San Diego day. Jamie and Mike love Balboa Park, so when putting the timeline together we left time to go to the park for bridal party portraits. After wandering around the park and getting some awesome imagery, we headed back to the Westin for the reception. I love when I have plenty of time for photographs, so when I see something that inspires me, we have time for spontaneous photos. We got to downtown a little bit early prior to the reception, so I was able to get some great urban style downtown photos of Jamie and Mike. The reception was a blast with plenty of entertainment. Jamie has both latin and asian decent, so they had a great mariachi band perform and a chinese dragon troupe perform as well. The whole evening culminated with lots of dancing and libations. We finished the night as I often like to with a few night time photos in the hotel and around downtown. Jamie and Mike are super awesome humans and it was a pleasure to photograph their wedding.
All The Best,
