{ Andrea + Taro | Prado Wedding Photography }

Andrea & Taro are the type of couple that makes me want to pinch myself to see if I really get to work with such amazing people – they are all kinds of sweet, fun, kind, and totally-and-madly-in-love! I loved getting to know them throughout their whole wedding experience, from our initial meeting, to their personalized & memorable engagement session, to the beautiful and heartfelt wedding. Their wedding day at The Prado in San Diego was my most very favorite kind – the kind that told their story and showcased their personalities at every turn. During the ceremony, they shared the most beautiful vows, blending little inside jokes, loving memories, and honest promises into phrases that reminded everyone how precious it is to be marrying your very best friend.

At the reception, they incorporated a travel theme and filled the room with details of their journey as a couple and the places where they created their fondest memories. And since we were already in San Diego the night before their wedding, Andrea & Taro kindly invited us to join them in their rehearsal dinner, which gave us the opportunity to share in even more of their wonderful wedding experience.

Andrea & Taro – thank you for inviting us to document your wedding and for treating us with warmth and kindness every step of the way. Your wedding day was the most beautiful celebration of love & joy and we are honored to have been a part of it!

Andrea & Taro had the sweetest first look:

I loved the light we had in the Alcazar Garden:

Their wedding was coordinated beautifully by Jenn & Kristie of Evenity, Inc who ensured all the details were taken care of. Like these AMAZING miniatures! I could have taken photos of these all day:

Each table had a different color arrangement and featured photos & a story from a location that they had visited together:

    Adrienne and Scott, it was truly an honor to have you photograph our wedding. Taro and I previewed all the pictures and it was definitely a treat looking back at the wedding and seeing what the other did prior to the group shots. The photographs made us relive the wedding and realize how special the entire day – and process – was. Thank you for EVERYTHING – from the engagement shoot to joining us for dinner (and taking shots there, too) to the ceremony and reception. You two are not just people who love their job as photographers, but two caring, heartfelt, and amazing individuals. We couldn’t have asked for more in photographers and we hope that we will have an opportunity to work with you again.
