Donagh + Deborah | Ensenada Wedding Photography | Las Rosas Resort

I’ve known Deborah and Donagh for a few years. Even before I moved to Thailand, Deborah and I were talking about her plans for their wedding. Well the time finally came and I flew all the way from Austin to see my good friends back in San Diego. What was even more fun was partaking in the Irish Stag Party a couple nights before with all the boys.

When Meg first called me to photograph their wedding, her and Don were still living in Okinawa, Japan (stationed with the Marines).

Rocio + Aaron | San Diego Wedding | Museum of Photographic Arts

Rocio is a good friend of mine who has modeled for some fine art photography for me. And when she told me she was getting married, I was of course over-joyed for her and her fiancée  Aaron. But I also wanted to get into wedding photography, so I asked her if she’d consider having me shoot it. When she told me that it was going to be at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA), I insisted that I photograph it. I practically grew up at MOPA. During high school I would take the trolly from Imperial Beach to the City College stop […]
