Vanessa and Luis: A Glorious Church Wedding and a Family-Focused Celebration


February 7, 2020

I can still hear families laughing and church bells ringing.

I don’t mean to brag, but I had the best time photographing the ultra-sweet and fun soul mate couple, Vanessa and Luis, for their wedding at the glorious Our Lady of Guadalupe church and their family-focused reception at the 60’s-themed-gem known as Kings Inn. Their love story is nearly fairy tale, and their wedding day was the essence of a perfect event!

Vanessa and Luis first met through a mutual friend during their college years. As the spark between them caught fire, they discovered how much they loved to simply be together, whether it was spending time with one another, being foodies together, or catching flicks together. They especially loved outdoorsy activities, with their first date under golden rays at the beach. And later on, when they both knew that they had found their soul mate, they were engaged during a romantic trip in Cabo San Lucas.

In mid-January of this year, I photographed Vanessa and Luis as they were wedded at the prestigious and holy Our Lady of Guadalupe church, after a first look and a few portraits in Balboa Park. The church’s historic architecture and stained glass windows brought out the smiles on Luis’ and Vanessa’s faces, along with their warm, romantic and inviting wedding colors of burgandy, blush, and white. The fun continued with their reception at Kings Inn, where family was the focus of a laid back, relaxed, and comfortable atmosphere. I couldn’t take a bad picture if I tried – Vanessa and Luis made the entire day about having fun, about being with family, and of course, about the love they share for each other and everyone that celebrated with them. Congratulations to you both, may your life together be filled with outdoorsy fun, beach days, delicious foods, movies, and of course, being together!

P.S. Vanessa and Luis, thank you both for the amazing review. People like you two make me absolutely love what I do, and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude. I can’t wait to see what comes next for you both, and I can’t wait to capture the next chapters of your life on camera very soon!
