Encinitas, Ca

When I was asked to photograph in San Diego I was thrilled. Having lived there a few years ago, it is always nice to have a reason to visit again! I never had the opportunity to visit the San Diego Botanic Garden when I lived there, so it was awesome to be able to photograph for this couple! This venue is by far one of my favorites. It is absolutely gorgeous! Minutes from the ocean, the San Diego Botanic Garden is definitely a prime spot for couples looking to get married in the San Diego area.

I am honored that Vanessa and John's wedding was featured on the inspiration board for real weddings on WeddingWire!

It is difficult to put into words how happy we are with Shaunte’s photos of our wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden. Her creativity and artistic perspective made for breathtaking photos. She scouted the venue beforehand and found gorgeous settings for our first look photos. She captured emotion during our ceremony and humor during speeches. The hundreds of photos she took from the bridal party getting ready to the last dance songs beautifully tell the story of our wedding. Plus, Shaunte’ was a joy to deal with throughout. We can’t thank her enough for what she has given us!
