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!

Unconditional Surrender

The Unconditional Surrender statue in San Diego is the depiction of a famous photograph taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt in Times Square on V-J day – August 14, 1945. A sailor was running down the street grabbing and kissing any and every girl in sight… young & old. Alfred instinctively waited for him to approach this nurse and snapped 4 shots, one of which would appear later that week in Life magazine and become a cultural icon. The statue is extremely popular for military couples, we took at jab at it recently and am very happy with it! San Diego’s statue is appropriately located directly adjacent to the Midway Aircraft Museum on San Diego’s waterfront. After the statue we hit Sunset Cliffs as the light faded. It’s off to Miami in December for the wedding! unconditional surrender   sunset cliffs engagement picture   sunset cliffs engagement photo   sunset cliffs engagement  

In the thick of it.

Really no time to blog or do much else but power through Season 11. Another crazy year! So glad we cut back on the travel…. yeah right. Twice to Cabo, Miami, Dallas, North Carolina,¬†and the rest about 30 split between SD, LA, and LV. George Clooney I am catching up! So much to share, so little time. Will try to do some daily images for the next few weeks at least. Our new studio will launch in LV soon, keep you posted!

For now here’s a few from a classic SD venue and one of our favorites to work, enjoy!
