Andrea's Prom


our good friend Peggy at Perfect Gathering Events put together a sweet little pre-prom party for andrea and her friends at the super cool Icon Building in downtown San Diego.







we started up on the roof overlooking Petco Park. The view up there is beautiful. andrea fit right in.




andrea and her gorgeous friends didn't stay up on the roof long. peeking over the railing from that dizzying height was kinda scary, not to mention it was getting too chilly up there to be wearing nothing but a prom dress.






















after packing in the elevator like sardines for the long ride down, it was time for some shots in front of the shimmer wall. isn't that a song by oasis?




if it was a song it would be about how everyone standing near it looks amazing.

























thank you peggy for having april and i out to capture part of this night. i love taking non-traditional prom photos!
hope everyone had an awesome prom.
