Downtown San Diego is almost completely empty on every street. It’s Monday afternoon as we finally find parking and walk past a few business people on our way to the beautifully minimal Luce Loft. Heading into the shoot, I’m instantly in awe over the gorgeous and simple wedding details that surround me.
I don’t know about you, but it’s always been on my bucket list to live downtown in a loft! It just seems so intriguing! As much as I’ve wanted to live there, shooting in Luce Loft was a dream come true. The delicately modern cake by Autumn Deanda and the intricate florals and bouquets by Fox and Flora were the ideal accent for the cement walls and antique lighting.
I’m definitely a sucker for anything white, grey, and mint … that simply elegant style gets me every time! The bride and groom stand out like a glowing light because nothing steals your attention away from them. The details can’t don’t compete with their genuine smiles.
Genuinely in love. Such a perfect way to describe Darcy and Josh feel toward each other! This sweet bride and groom smiled, laughed, and joked the entire day away. As he whispers in her ear, she erupts into a graceful giggle and elegantly leans toward the camera. When a couple is this in love, it makes my job too easy!
Darcy and Josh, thank you so much for spending your day in front of my camera. What a privilege it was to be able to give you photos that you didn’t get on your actual wedding day! This shoot was incredible because of the way you look at each other, laugh with each other, and love each other. And I love that you were so free to be yourselves! Your joy is apparent to anyone who sees you.
Tilly and Janita, thank you for putting together this elegant, classy, timeless styled shoot at Luce Loft. You styled everything so beautifully and I can’t wait to work with you again!

P.s. if you’re looking for a cake that looks amazing AND tastes amazing, I’d recommend Autumn Deanda 100%! I don’t even like frosting, but tasting the frosting on the cake she made…love at first bite.
