Monica + Steve : St Joseph’s Cathedral : Coronado : North Island Club

Anyone who had the chance to meet and/or work with Monica and Steve should be very lucky.  I consider myself very lucky. Monica, she is stunning. Absolutely stunning, not only on the outside but very much the inside as well. Heart of gold. And Steve… it was quite humorous to hear the priest pick on you, or was everyone else picking on you but it only shows how much Monica means to you. You two are meant to be, and are very lucky to have each other. I was smiling the entire wedding, that’s a lot of smiling… 12 hours of smiling! I really love you two. I love your whole family.

I always have such a hard time picking images for everyone to sneak a peek. Do I choose the ones that has me giggling, or smiling, or awing (awing, such a word?) or dang! that was fierce!! Here it is, your sneak a peek.

Hmmmm…. I think I went a bit camera happy with the girls. Don’t worry boys, you will soon get your spotlight.

The ceremony took place at the St Joseph’s Cathedral in Downtown San Diego.

Oh Steve, when you thought no one else noticed.

A favorite of mine. It was right after they sealed it with a kiss, now husband and wife…

Congratulations Monica and Steve. We love you!

The first dance and Steve is still gushing.

For you Mom and Dad. Congrats to both on your many years of marriage.

The photobooth was a success, I am glad your team of family and friends enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed them. I will post a few more in the next week or so.

It was the wedding I was very much looking forward to shooting, I had the pleasure of shooting with the very talented Sovanna & Seung of Nara Photography. They are the super couple (putting you in my pocket). Lea Eleccion of Celebrations By Design, coordinated the wedding and she made the wedding flow like lava off a chocolate cake (sorry I am craving chocolate). Plus she’s a sweetie and every time I see her, I want to hug her.  Mannie De Leon, the DJ of the night kept the guests entertained, the bride and groom entertained, I was entertained (smiling for 12 hours!!!).

The night was recorded by Gerald Labrador of GLVIDEOGRAPHY. He is extremely patient and moves where you move. No joke. He took my parking space, beat me to the parking space I was eyeing to get to the wedding party. He did not know I was 3 vehicles behind him waiting to make that u-turn to snag it. But I still approve of him.

    It was a pleasure to work with everyone that day.
    I posted a short video of that day on my blog here:

    Sorry I beat you to that space, I know I drove around there 2-3 times, then that spot appeared. I’m the glad the cars ahead of me did not make that u-turn either!

    • I am happy it was you and not someone else. Someone had to get to the wedding party and I am glad it was you.

      I love the video. Love it. Thanks for sharing =)

  4. You have such a great eye for the right moment. My favorite has to be the bride and bridesmaids posing in front of the red background. Looks very celebrity!
