Michelle and Joseph’s day of wedding photography began when I arrived at her parent’s house in Poway, California to capture some final getting ready shots before the excitement of the couple’s ceremony and reception for their Admiral Baker wedding photos. Along with her bridesmaids in their beautiful blue dresses, her father and brother in their suits, ties and boutonnieres, I also photographed Michelle with her two cute dogs. But of course it was Michelle in her lovely long-train wedding dress who looked especially wonderful.
Time soon had us driving to the Admiral Baker Clubhouse in the Mission Gorge area of San Diego, California for the couple’s ceremony and reception. Admiral Baker Clubhouse is one many nice U.S. Navy Region Southwest venues. I’ve photographed weddings and events at their other venues, too, particularly Admiral Kidd, which you can see more of by using the search tool at the top left of this webpage.
Admiral Baker Clubhouse offered panoramic views of the golf course and surrounding mountains, making for a lovely backdrop to Michelle and Joseph’s wedding. In this wedding photography article you can see some of my wedding photographer favorite shots of the couple from their Admiral Baker wedding photos, including images created at the clubhouse, golf course, and of the mountain views.
Michelle and Joseph’s wedding ceremony took place on the patio and was officiated wonderfully by their Navy Chaplain. Everyone of their 100 plus guests I’m sure enjoyed the sweet and fun wedding ceremony as much as I did. At the conclusion of their wedding ceremony, we spent a little time capturing some posed, creative and fun wedding photos outside the clubhouse and on part of the golf course.
The couple’s Admiral Baker wedding photos also captured their entire reception, which was held in the Presidio Ballroom. The reception, like the cocktails served after the ceremony, was catered to by the staff of Admiral Baker, who prepared an excellent meal and excellent service, too. Following the meal, toasts from their best man, maid of honor, Michelle’s father, brother, and several of their friends, wedding photography then captured other key moments like first dances, wedding bouquet and garter belt tosses, plenty of dancing, and cutting of their delicious wedding cake. And the master of ceremonies and DJ for the fun reception was All Around Mobile Sound.
Michelle and Joseph’s Admiral Baker wedding photos were a true delight to create, prepare and share here for the couple. With their online gallery of images, prints, and gorgeous wedding album, the couple will have timeless and beautiful keepsakes of their wedding that will last a lifetime.
