An Intimate Beach Wedding on Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, California


The beautiful couple, Will and Leslie, shared a spectacular beach wedding in San Diego on the legendary Sunset Cliffs. Before saying their vows, Will and Leslie held an intimate Tea Ceremony to celebrate their Chinese heritage. This day was just as special as the beautiful pictures captured. We were so happy to have helped capture these beautiful memories.

Getting Ready for the Tea Ceremony

Nothing but big smiles for Will and Leslie on their big day!



The Tea Ceremony

A Chinese Tea Ceremony is a cultural wedding tradition that can date back all the way to the Tang dynasty in China. The couple serves tea to their respective families as an act of welcoming and unifying. Everyone was filled with love and joy as their families united.



The First Look

Will and Leslie shared some beautiful first look memories before their big "I do's". They both looked absolutely incredible! Loving how they look into each other's eyes.



Saying "I do" with an Epic View

A beach wedding in beautiful San Diego? With Sunset Cliffs' dramatic coastal scenery? It doesn't get much better than this. Surrounded by their loved ones and an unforgettable ocean view, Will and Leslie exchange "I do's".



"As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love."

This is Love

Now, introducing, for the first time as husband and wife, Will and Leslie! After a romantic ceremony, the newly weds had a fun and magical photo shoot on Sunset Cliffs. These amazing pictures beautifully capture how deeply in love Will and Leslie are with one each other. Seeing these two so happy and head over heels is what makes photographing weddings that much more special. Their joy is contagious. Cheers to Will and Leslie!
