Photographer San Diego

Josh + Christina

You’ve probably had your fair share of traditional weddings. As someone offering wedding photographer San Diego services however, I’ve also seen a few truly unique ones. Josh and Christina’s wedding definitely falls under the second category.

I’ve had my fair share of Chaldean weddings before. This is why I wasn’t as surprised as other people would be. The fact that I also did their engagement shoot was an advantage. I got to see a side of them then, and I knew they were not going to settle for the ordinary.

Josh and Christina each got ready in their own homes. They were both surrounded by family and friends. The mood was very upbeat and light. Josh even had time to watch soccer and drink some scotch.

The ceremony was held at St. Peter’s Church in El Cajon. The ceremony was beautiful! The couple was evidently blooming. It’s the kind of wedding that makes me feel grateful I offer wedding photographer San Diego services. You can really feel the love not only between the couple, but among everyone there.

We drove out to Coronado after the ceremony, but stopped at Logan Heights along the way. We took a few modern portraits there. The cool graffiti walls and old abandoned buildings proved to be amazing backdrops. 

When we got to Coronado, we went straight to the Del Coronado Hotel. We took some great shots at the lobby, then we went out for some ice cream.

After cooling off, we went back to San Diego. The reception was held at the Town and Country resort. As I expected, it was a lot more fun than other traditional weddings. There was so much dancing! Everybody was on the move.

This may have been longer than my usual wedding photographer San Diego gigs. But it was all worth it. It was an amazing experience seeing cultures blending together in events like these. It’s nothing but inspiring.
