Paradise Point Resort Wedding

Although this Paradise Point Resort Wedding was only a few miles outside of downtown San Diego, it feels as though you have arrived in an exotic, tropical destination.  Lush palm trees and flowering hibiscus line the path to private cabanas with verandas opening onto the water.  The sound of live, island style music floats in the air from the Barefoot Bar and Grill where you can enjoy views of the bay and fabulous food.  Many of Sara and Ed’s guest list traveled to attend the wedding, so it was very important to make it a memorable vacation!

The ceremony was scheduled for sunset, so we planned a First Look Session to take advantage of the gorgeous gardens.  I LOVE when we have plenty of time to focus on romantic portraits! It is such a treat to be able to capture that first moment when a couple sees each other all dolled up and full of anticipation.  Sarah was so elegant and sophisticated, and her train was to die for.

Another big highlight for us was working with Bliss Events!  They did a knockout job of coordinating all of the details so that the day went seamlessly.  Thank you, Staci and congratulations Sara and Ed!!!


“Above and beyond! Shane and Jen are an unbeatable team that captured the essence of our wedding and didn’t miss a single moment. They are both a pleasure to work with and extremely good at taking pictures.

Let me explain in more detail. They are great with light and focus. All the shots we got back looked amazing. However, even better, they are great at getting you to look good in your pictures. Nothing is worse than looking like a fool in a beautifully lit photo. They do a fabulous job avoiding this common pitfall. In addition they are great with direction so when something needs adjusting they guide you in very comfortable and organic way making for amazing pictures where you, the lighting and the scene look good.

I could tell by the end of the day that Shane and Jen KNOW weddings, and they know the moments that need attention, and the shots that can’t be missed in order to create a complete story. Being a good wedding photographer is a high pressure job, where performance and personality is essential. These moments only happen once, and they nailed it.

Highly, Highly recommended!”
