Michael & Sierra | San Diego Wedding Photography

I love being a San Diego wedding photographer.  I love the fact that I can have a beach wedding one week and then a mountain wedding the next.  Michael and Sierras wedding took place in Lakeside at their home church and then we drove up into Alpine to Sierra’s home for the reception.  I’ll admit I’ve never driven that far east before and the roads got pretty narrow and windy.  Their home was pretty much surrounded by mountains and was absolutely breathtaking.  It was hard to narrow down my favorites for this blog – so here’s many of my favorites from their gorgeous day.


Michael and Sierra chose not to see each other before the ceremony.  However, they did take a few minutes to pray with each other beforehand with Michael blindfolded.  Sierra had those nervous-excited jitters before getting to see her groom.


They got married at the church they had grown up at together.  Their prayer happened on the playground where many years before they had held a pretend wedding with each other.  I think this might be one of the sweetest romances I have ever heard!


The image below on the left was taken by my wonderful assistant Wendy.  She was a huge help throughout the day and even snagged a few photos off the balcony for me during the ceremony.  Her amazing photography can be seen here!


Michael gave all his groomsmen watches with their name inscribed on them for their gift.  20212223242526

It’s a tradition in the Butcher family to make up a song for the bride and groom when someone says “I do”.  They had everyone laughing 🙂454647
