We’re back with Melissa and Jason’s Leoness Cellars Wedding. Our lovely couple first met a few years ago while attending dentistry school in San Francisco where their relationship flourished. After dentistry school, Melissa and Jason started a rapidly growing dentistry practice in San Diego. During their engagement session, we got a chance to chat a bit over dinner. In a way Melissa and Jason are a lot like Karen and I in that they spend almost all their waking hours together: working and spending down time with each other. We all agreed that working together has its challenges, such as separating work from life, but we wouldn’t trade it in for anything.

One of things we love about Melissa and Jason is their love of travel, which they incorporated into the reception details. Not only do they love to travel, they are big foodies like us. Their Leoness Cellars Wedding was the perfect setting to celebrate their love of wine and food on their happiest day with family and friends, whom they love dearly. Jason and Melissa are very close to their families: her maid of honors were her sisters and his best men were his twin brother and father.

It’s always a treat for us to shoot at the beautiful wineries in nearby Temecula, such as Leoness Cellars. We’re thrilled we got to make some incredible portraits of Melissa and Jason in the vineyards right before sunset. We’re so happy and honored they chose to document their big celebration.

Big thanks to our crazy talented second shooter Mallory Ollenius.

We recently spent a fun summer afternoon in La Jolla with Stefanie and Frank. We were blessed with a warm golden sun and blue skies all afternoon, which gave us plenty of lovely light to work our magic. We can’t wait for their El Cortez wedding next year!

Life, laughter and libations were free flowing throughout the night at Hilary and Bob’s L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding.  The Pacific Ocean and L’Auberge in Del Mar provided a gorgeous backdrop for their Spring celebration. Hilary and Bob celebrated their wedding true to Spring’s meaning of rebirth and renewal. Two beautiful and fun-loving people, Hilary and Bob are playful, young at heart and embrace life with gusto. Congratulations and thank you for allowing us to document your big day.
