Alessandra + Garek's Beachside Dream

Carrie Hoffman

These two bright, happy spirits tied the knot in an intimate Cardiff Reef State Beach ceremony followed by dinner and dancing alongside the waves!  It was so perfect for these two surfers!  Alessandra is one of my best friends in the world, so I was so happy I got to be with her for all of her special day, from the pre-makeup Buti yoga session to the many heartfelt toasts by family members.  Congratulations Alex and Garek!

So much HAPPINESS and my first ever drone video!

When I first met Lili + Devin I could immediately see how in love they were.  As Lili's MOH describes it, "You guys are best friends and you're so comfortable together."  This wedding highlights also features my first ever drone footage, giving us an epic aerial view of the ceremony!  (courtesy of ABI Photo)

The big day for Katie + Enzo!

Carrie Hoffman

My dear friends Katie and Enzo's big day finally happened!  I was thrilled to film a wedding with many of my close friends in attendance, and also super excited for the food!  Katie is a vegan chef so she meticulously designed the menu for the outstanding 5-course dinner reception.  As a vegan I'm used to eating salad and bread at weddings, so this was a refreshing change!  Here's their wedding highlights video premiere!


Amanda + Isaac: Intimate Beach Wedding

Carrie Hoffman

Amanda + Isaac, both California transplants, met in the Marine Corps and both served tours overseas.  Their beachy, intimate ceremony and restaurant reception included lots of fun vintage-inspired details!

Melissa + Brina: Torrey Pines Engagement

Carrie Hoffman

Mel and I go way back.  We met through a mutual friend one summer while galavanting around High Street in Columbus, Ohio.  Since then she's always been solid as a rock-- always there for adventures and heart-to-hearts.  Melissa visited us in San Diego earlier this year and promptly decided to move here!  Brina is obviously equally adventurous as she trusted Mel completely and was totally down to move to SoCal sight unseen!  I'm so happy to have these two as neighbors now and to photograph their upcoming wedding!

Sneak Peek: Amanda + Isaac's Wedding

Carrie Hoffman

Amanda and Isaac had a very sunny and cheerful wedding in Cuvier Park in La Jolla yesterday, with only a small, intimate group of family and friends at the ceremony and reception.  Just LOOK at that vintage dress!  It's amazing!  I was a short dress bride and I always LOVE to see short wedding dresses.  Short dress solidarity!

Welcome summer!

Carrie Hoffman

It's summer, finally!  San Diego's "June gloom" has lifted and the sun is blazing!  The time has come for sunbathing, surfing without wetsuits, and bonfires!  I love it.  To get you in the mood, here's a sweet beach wedding I shot in Corona del Mar last summer.  I just love seeing the waves crashing in the background as Gume and Jeremy get married!


Leather + Lace Style Shoot

Carrie Hoffman

In April I had the pleasure of shooting a Behind the Scenes video for a vendor-collaboration style shoot.  The amazing planner Andi from Now That's A Party set it up!  We had gorgeous models, luscious flowers, and a super unique concept!  The best part for me was getting to practice new cinematography without the pressure of an actual wedding!  Enjoy!
