san diego fashion show sneak peek


hello. my name is david and i've been an addict for a few months. it was earlier this year when i started. tempted and intrigued, i thought i'd just try it. "the first one's free" i was told. what i wasn't told is that "the first one" is all it takes to skew your mind and leave you helplessly craving more. needing more. forever.
today i admit to everyone that i am a fashion photography junkie. it's siren call has lured me away from wedding photography yet again. resistance is futile. it's too late for me now, i'm hooked, and i will not be stopping any time soon.
once again i had the pleasure of working with the beautiful and world famous irmina ragauskaite.





































kaeli and liz were both looking very avant garde
















i was also lucky enough to work with the lovely lauren henno.










k and b made this chilly san diego water look like a pool in palm springs back in the day with their super rad vintage swimwear.










yes, we had this much fun. a HUGE thanks to all the models for helping make every one of these sessions awesome.




although she is not pictured in this post, i would love to thank the uber talented laura latour for once again being the creative director / stylist / coolest person to work with.
i also have to give props to the fashion design students at the Art Institute of San Diego for making all the cool outfits, except mine :)



thank you for visiting our wedding photography blog
check out our portfolio.
