We had so much fun yesterday at Roya & JJ’s wedding at Del Mar Beach Resort in Camp Pendleton! What a beautiful evening for a wedding on the beach, and so many memorable highlights at the reception (just wait until you see the cake cutting!!). So excited to see these two married! : )

Nattaya & Zachary | Engagement Photos at Wilson Creek Winery and Windansea Beach | San Diego Wedding PhotographersAugust 27, 2013
Last weekend, we met up with Nattaya & Zachary for their engagement photos at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula! From the beginning, they were relaxed and snuggled and smooched and seemed to forget that we were even there! We watched them as they laughed together and flirted with each other among the vines. You can tell that whenever they are together, it’s always a fun time! We stuck around Temecula after their session for a little wine tasting, and then we parted for a few hours before meeting up with them again in the evening.
We shot the second part of their engagement photos at Windansea Beach! It was the first time we’ve split up an engagement session this way, and it was really cool because we got to look forward to seeing them again! Plus it was well worth the wait, because the beach that evening was weather was cool and breezy (a huge change from the hot desert conditions up in Temecula!). Nattaya & Zach dipped their toes in the sand and the water and playfully walked along the shore until the last trace of the sun disappeared from the sky. We’re excited to share more photos from their sweet photo sessions! : )
Sneak Peek: Nattaya & Zachary | Engagement Photos at Wilson Creek Winery and Windansea Beach | San Diego Wedding PhotographersAugust 25, 2013
Today we got to have twice the fun with Nattaya & Zachary, shooting their engagement session at two picturesque locations! First, we began the morning with their engagement photos at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula! They snuggled and smooched and giggled among the vines, which were full of fruit just about ready for the harvest!
Then we met up later in the day for sunset engagement photos at Windansea Beach. The sky was incredible tonight, and the beach was full of people enjoying the salty breeze, the surf, and the spectacular sunset! Here’s a sneak peek of this cute couple and some beautiful SoCal scenery!
Rachel & Jon | Wedding at NTC Liberty Station and Solare Restaurant | San Diego Wedding PhotographersAugust 12, 2013
Happy Monday! We hope everyone had a great weekend! We’re excited to start off the week with Rachel & Jon’s beautiful wedding at NTC Liberty Station! It was a gorgeous day for a wedding, and beneath a huppah with pretty pink and white flowers, Rachel & Jon said “I do!” with their closest friends and family there to witness and support them! If ever there were two people completely excited to marry each other, it’s these two! They were bursting with happiness throughout the ceremony, smiling and laughing and even shedding a few very happy tears.
After the ceremony, everyone gathered at the beautiful Solare Ristorante for dinner, drinks, and dancing! The long tables and soft lighting created an intimate setting, and having dessert on the patio allowed everyone to enjoy the perfect San Diego weather. One of my favorite moments of the day was when one of the other restaurants patrons was recruited to help lift the newlyweds into the air. Rachel & Jon’s happiness was shared with everyone who saw them. It’s hard not to smile when you see two people this much in love, and their photos always make me smile thinking of that day! : )

Happy Friday! We’re ending the week with Jennifer & William’s fun engagement photos at Castaic Lake. As you can see, we had a lot of fun at their e-session! Dirt roads, mountains, tall grass, a vintage Land Cruiser, a beautiful sunset and a hot couple – what more can you ask for?! We can’t wait to join Jennifer & William in Castaic again for their wedding this fall! Looking at their photos again inspires me to want to get out of the house this weekend and go enjoy the natural beauty of California! : )
Believe it or not, we are already thinking ahead about holiday orders over here at GTP! This fall, we are going to be spending several weeks in China for Matt’s brother’s wedding! We are very excited to travel half away across the world for such a special occasion, but it does require some planning ahead! Our usually holiday order deadline is November 1st, but since we will be out of the country at that time our cutoff for album orders is going to be October 1st. This deadline is only for those who want guaranteed arrival of their album for the holidays. To encourage you to think ahead about your holiday album orders, we are offering 25% off all albums and parent albums throughout the month of August!
All of our albums are available in 10×10 or 12×12 size and have the same exact design process. The layouts are all panoramic prints on archival photo paper. We begin with a draft of your album design to give you a place to start, and then you can make changes to ensure the layout is exactly the way you want.
The difference between the albums primarily comes down to two things – binding and page thickness. Our Coffee Table Book has thin pages while the Classic and Luxe albums have thick mounted pages. The Coffee Table Book has a photographic hard cover. The Classic Album includes your choice of high quality fabric or leather and a cameo image. The Luxe Album include two fabrics or leather and a cameo on the cover.
