Coronado Wedding Photographer

Tyler + Tinja

For people who just love the water, the Coronado Cays Yacht Club would be the perfect setting for a wedding. This is why I knew right from the start that Tyler and Tinja’s wedding was going to be amazing. As a Coronado wedding photographer, I knew I had to grab every opportunity to frame every memory.

I was right in the midst of the action. I ran back and forth from one room at the Coronado Marriot Hotel to another as they both got ready. The air was heavy with anticipation and excitement. But there was no stress here – it was all fun, love and laughter.

Tyler was watching football with his buddies, while Tinja hung out with her best friends. For a Coronado wedding photographer like me, I knew it was a good sign. They were both savoring the moments leading up to their wedding. There was no tension, no anxiety, no panic whatsoever. They both knew that this union was meant to be.

Their first look was amazing as they posed around the hotel stairs. It was evident in their eyes how happy they were to see each other. We continued the shoot at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club dock, where I witnessed how at ease Tinja was in her surroundings. This wasn’t surprising. Tinja is an avid sailor, and she frequented this place growing up.

Part of Tyler’s family came from Hawaii, and they were extremely happy to be here. I actually enjoyed working with both families. You can see that the happy and light aura runs in both bloodlines.

The ceremony was absolutely stunning. It was held at the Coronado CaysYacht Club’s lawn. 

After the wedding, we jumped straight to my car to hit the beach. It was perfect timing! We had a gorgeous sunset in the background as they posed along Imperial Beach. To make things even better, we passed a cool graffiti wall on the way back. I knew we just had to take advantage of it! We took some awesome shots there as well.

As expected, the night ended with loads of dancing and a lot of laughter. It was definitely a great group of people. In my stint as a Coronado wedding photographer, I recall what they say – you are who you hang out with. And seeing Tyler and Tinja’s family and friends, I’m not at all surprised why they turned out to be such amazing people.
