Humphreys Concerts

humphreys san diego   When planning a wedding location is everything. We travel a lot, and something I can often be heard saying when visiting a new museum, concert, restaurant or beach is.. Man, this would be a sick wedding venue. At Humphrey’s, it’s all possible! Nestled on Shelter Island, smack in the middle of the marina. Pretty hard to beat. Assuming you can find your favorite date amidst their hectic concert schedule. If you’re thinking waterfront and outside you absolutely must click the link below, it’s a 360 virtual view of Humphrey’s:

Comic Con

Aww another Comic Con in the books, on to next year! This year lacked a healthy amount of huge announcements, but made up for it in overall fun. D’s personal favorite was the Arrow Trailer for next season. She did that girly scream when Oliver asked Felicity out on a date. Can’t these two get together already, cmon!!! And of course it’s not as good as the actual show but hearing panels and mingling with actors from shows like Game of Thrones does help to pass the time until next season does it not? Tentative dates for Comic Con 2015 in San Diego are July 9-12. You can also pass the time with yearly holiday releases like Halo 5, Call of Duty, & Battlefield too…


San Diego Military Programs

Now that we back in the habit of blogging again I wanted to continue my tradition of mentioning our military programs at least once a month. Both programs are awesome and while they are becoming more well known every year there is still a lot of people that don’t realize they are out there. We’re also working on a more thorough list of all resources for San Diego Military Programs. It’s quite the undertaking but we hope to make it easier to have a go to place where you can find out and explore benefits and well deserved extras for military. For the photography side of things we are heavily involved in Operation Love Reunited and we encourage you to spread the word!

Operation Love Reunited is for families who will experience a deployment. They can sign up for a free family/couples session prior to deployment, during, or at the homecoming. All you have to do is visit their site and do a little paperwork and request our studio. We offer coverage in Southern California covering military bases including but not limited Camp Pendleton, MCAS Miramar, Point Loma, MCRD San Diego, March ARB, Twentynine Palms, and North Island. We try to do as many as we can, but with all the travel we can’t work with everyone. There are a handful of other great photographers available as well.

Please share this info with your circles and if you know any military families please let know so they can spread the word!
