judy and journee's bridal session in san diego


let me begin this post by saying thank you to everyone for their support last week. your kind words were a huge lift to our spirits. more on that soon.
getting back to judy and journee, we recently met up for a second time to do a fun bridal session. a practice round if you will. judy and journee got all dressed up and we headed to downtown san diego for starters, then took a short drive north to catch the days last light in la jolla. as we were walking downtown we bumped into michael at the red lotus society in san diego's original chinatown. he was super cool and let us inside to catch some of these shots. thank you so much michael.
we had loads of fun doing this bridal session. we can't wait until next month when judy and journee finally tie the knot. their wedding is going to be incredible. we're also super excited to see judy's real wedding dress (this one was just for the bridal session).
as we get into this session, you can see super fun round 1 with judy and journee at disneyland here.




i took this shot and april put on the magic sprinkles. me likey.




i'm so glad judy likes the color red. journee and her look amazing in front of it.




any guesses how this shot was done?
















shield your eyes kids.
hotness follows.
















judy was looking super fierce and then when i stopped shooting for a second kim said something funny and judy started laughing.
i love catching real emotion, especially smiles.































we love judy's fishy. her shoes were awesome too.






















journee was outside doing his best to make judy crack in front of our cameras. she was nearly uncrackable. nearly.







feelin hot hot hot.

That first shot... POW!!!

And regarding that shot where you ask how it was done. Was that a reflection in the vase or the table?

Amazing photos once again.

Armin de Fiesta said...

It's a real bonus to have clients that just love pictures enough to get some done before the wedding! I see a little avant garde here, really cool contrasts & light! Very nice!!!

Oh my goodness! Where do I start? So many great captures to choose from. I love 1 & 3 the best though. These seriously look like editorial layouts for a fashion magazine.

Such an awesome variety of shots here! Totally love the first image.

Miguel Mayo said...

Awesome pictures!!!

brenda hintze said...

This bridal session is the best I have ever seen!! 1,2,3,5 and 10 are amazing.
I would just die for photos of me and my husband like these. I agree with the guy above, you don't need to shoot the wedding with these and the engagement session at Disneyland. They have an amazing amount of awesome pictures already!! If we ever get to visit San Diego we are looking you guys up!

Holly Anne said...

I couldn't leave you out! I just love your photography so much, it is a constant inspiration to me. I feel like if I had not found the blogs that I listed in that article, I wouldn't be so obsessed with photography right now and it makes me so happy. So thank you for helping to inspire me to follow my dreams! :)

Ryel j Photography said...

This session looks so great! What a fun style and yummy light! You guys are the best.

ksenija said...

stop the madness!!! OUTTA CONTROL -- you guys rocked another one out & then some! way too many top fav's to even begin -- but the one of her laughing that you caught naturally, the one that you asked if anyone knew how it was shot, the blurred image of them walking away to the left & the little coy fishy on her foot with those bada$$ shoes are just to name a few!!! great job... hope you guys have a wonderful weekend ahead. :D

Tavis Johnson said...
