California Center for the Arts in Escondido and the Civic Center with Grape Day Park makes a great photo session venue. I love the open grass area, the old train station, this image with the metal design, and the walk ways are fantastic for photos. This images is one of my favorite. Taking a different look at photos and finding that unique perspective can make an image just jump at you. When I shot this, I was feeling it. I knew I got the shoot.
Night photography has always been a challenge. With wedding photography and long exposures, the couple can not always hold still for a long time. I just hd to make this shot happen. It did take a little bit of time but this Downtown San Diego landmark is such an icon. This couple was great. The ceremony was outside the El Cortez and the reception indoors in the Ballroom. This room has sooo much history. In between we took a limo ride to Balboa Park for some bride and groom portraits.
