San Diego wedding vows

Gorgeous. Lovely.

Amidst the beauty of a wedding day I often ponder the poignant nature of life, filled with joy, happiness, sadness, success, failure, beauty, life and death. Usually the tougher experiences of life remain in the background of our minds when in the presence of such joy.

On this day, the realism of these thoughts were more present and relevant. The wedding crowd was filled with Dress Whites and the word of the loss of brave soldiers abroad was a personal reality in this tight knit community of people. I just wanted to give a word of honor and respect to all of them.

That being said, Love and Joy ruled the day as we celebrated every single moment that we have to live and be. The sun shone brightly on this couple, their family, their friends and their church. It was an amazing experience! Enjoy the photos.

Happy grandma’s keeping things on time and going in the right direction!

    It was so enjoyable working with you, Larry, and your pleasant daughter over the wedding event. While being unobtrusive, it seemed you were always at hand when a photo opportunity presented itself.Thank you for that gift to our family, as well as creative, well-shot photos! Mother-of-the-Bride
