Christian and Elizabeth's Historic California Desert Wedding – San Diego, CA

You know those people, they come around every so often, and it’s like they have a lamp lit on the inside? They just sort of glow from the inside out? That is Elizabeth, or “Liz.” I have known her since 2013 and I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a day where she wasn’t smiling from ear to ear. Her joy is infectious and she’s just one of those people who you feel good simply being around them. I know anyone reading this who knows her, knows this to be true. So in 2016, before I moved away from San Diego, I was so excited when she asked me to do her engagements. We had an amazing time on the beach in Oceanside with her fiance’ Christian. When they contacted me and let me know they hadn’t found another photographer who was right for them, it was meant to be that I flew back for their wedding. It’s such an honor to do a destination wedding because that couple decided it was worth it to bring me to them, thank you Liz and Christian, your wedding day was an absolute pleasure!
