Danielle and Eddie’s Downtown San Diego Engagement

From the moment they met they had been planning their dream trip to visit Italy together and after months of planning, simply excited to travel together, Eddie decided this was the perfect opportunity to propose to the love of his life.  On the Spanish Steps in Rome, surrounding by strangers, Eddie got down on one knee and they began their new journey together as an engaged couple! What a way to celebrate in the middle of Italy, strangers applauded, someone came up and gave Danielle red roses, talk about an incredible moment.  And this same love and passion for one another was so evident while photographing them all around downtown San Diego.  Eddie, full of surprises, even made reservations for an amazing dinner after the engagement.  We are so honored to witness their love and can’t imagine how amazing their November wedding day will be.  Thanks D & E!  You two rock!

LeeAnna and Jake's Wedding Day

Ah, LeeAnna and Jake... where do we start with this fabulous down to earth fun-loving couple and their dream wedding day...

(and it seems serendipitous to us that their wedding is the first we have posted since the pandemic began in 2020.)


Words at this point don't necessarily have to be spoken anymore to share the emotions and patience that 2020 required from the world.

We very much recall all the conversations with couples as the news hit about shutdowns and specifically remember talking to LeeAnna and Jake 60 days out from their original June 2020 wedding date and all of us coming to terms with the fact that another year of waiting seemed inevitable. LeeAnna and Jake focused their energies together on enduring this journey with the hopes that one day their dream would come to fruition... in the words of the bride, there were a lot of lows with very little highs during the shifts and pivots of COVID-19.

Patience prevailed...

To witness them celebrating with their family and friends was like watching a dream come true.

What we would have taken for granted pre-pandemic magnified the fact that their wedding day was here.

This journey we have all been through is a personal one and left us feeling amiss and made it hard to share any "highs" we may have experienced through a global pandemic.

Jake and LeeAnna's wedding day meant as much to us as it meant to them!

A true symbol that love is the strongest bond and if you can hold on tight and never let go of your dreams, there is a rainbow on the other side.

Congrats Mr and Mrs Thompson, you are one of a kind and we will always remember the laughter, joy and DANCING that you never for a moment took for granted.
