Mark and Ireland had their San Diego wedding on a private estate surrounded by beautiful hills and their incredible community. It’s honestly a wild story about how everything went leading up to this wedding day!
Mark and Ireland were originally supposed to get married at a coffee shop in San Diego (Mark is a kick-ass barista, so it felt right). Only a few months before their wedding, the coffee shop got an order from the city telling them not to host events in the space anymore due to noise complaints! We were all bummed, mostly because it’s hard to replan a wedding in a short period of time. BUT DANG. These two and their friends completely made it happen.
I’ve actually been photographing Mark and Ireland for years! They asked me to shoot their grad photos (turned cute couples session hehehe) at the Back Bay in Newport, then we did their engagement pictures over at Quail Hill in Irvine when the mustard was blooming in the spring! Most recently, I photographed their wedding (obviously), and it was the sweetest experience yet.
Mark and Ireland are sooo freaking cute together, and I just loved every second of being a part of this day. When they both came down the aisle, their friends and family grouped around them to pray before the ceremony started. It was such an intimate time really showing how these two are supported and LOVED by their community, and I was so honored to be a part of that moment.

What Mark + Ireland said about working together for their San Diego wedding on a private estate:
“Deciding to go with Erin for our wedding photos was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! She was incredibly professional, always on top of things, and extremely kind. Taking photos with her was so easy, she made the entire experience comfortable, natural and so much fun!
Erin was so prepared with our engagement and wedding photos! Her questionnaires, phone calls and updates before the photoshoots made her so easy to work with! She highlighted exactly what you wanted, made you feel so comfortable and was such a fun person to work with!!
We LOVED our engagement and wedding photos! I could not believe how beautifully she was able to capture the little and major moments of our wedding. There wasn’t a picture we didn’t love! She captured the most gorgeous photos with so much attention to detail! Seriously crying over some of these photos, I had no idea she was even there for some of them she just snuck in and took the perfect picture so many times!
I will always 100000% recommend Erin! I’m sad our wedding season is over because we don’t get any more photos taken, but ANY future event we have we will call her immediately! We loved her!!!”
