Congratulations Lorenzo & Sara

We have not been keeping up with our photography blog at all this year.  Forgive us -it’s been a very busy year!  We are making a lot of changes on our business -all of which are very exciting.  So blogging -something we were never good at keeping up with has been low down on our to-do list.  But we assure you we are still in business and going strong!  :) We are focusing on new products, new equipment, redefining our style and generally how to better embrace our artistic talents to best celebrate the love our wedding couples and families share.

We want to post some images and the slideshow from Sara & Lorenzo’s (our giveaway winners) wedding.   I am meeting them in just a few hours to see their images for the first time during a Preview Reception (contact us to learn more about Preview Receptions).

Lorenzo & Sara originally planned a local (Bakersfield) wedding.  When they called to say they decided to have it in San Diego -with the reception being at a new (and very posh) venue -The Loft @ UCSD (where Alex & I graduated) -we were THRILLED!  It was great working with Sara and Lorenzo to plan the timeline and photo events of the day.  (A part of why we decided to do this giveaway is because we wanted a day of full artistic documentation control -and they excitedly agreed!)

I have to say that the images from their wedding day are truly some of my absolute favorite from our portfolio (and that’s saying a lot -given we photographed our first wedding in May of 2005).  There was no shortage of beautiful backdrops that San Diego offers (we had a hard time narrowing down locations to shoot -San Diego is large and they did have guest to keep in mind).  The beautiful venues (ceremony at Balboa Park and reception at The Lof @ UCSD) and dedication and talent of their florist and coordinators -we feel like we won a giveaway!  The joy and excitement of Sara and Lorenzo just made the day all the more fun and inspiring.

Okay on to some pictures!!!  Oh and don’t forget to watch the slideshow.
















Time to dance!

Special Offer -wedding photography

There are so many reasons to chose Solorzano Photography to photograph your wedding.

NOW we’re giving you


In addition to our always complimentary engagement session, we are giving away our Signature Guest Book Albums through the end of January. When you book your wedding with us this month we will thank you with this awesome guest book that features your favorite images from your engagement session for your guests to sign and write in “yearbook style” on your wedding day! (Trust us when we say that these are really great guest books -you’ll cherish it almost as much as each other!) See the end of this post for some sample pictures of our Signature Guest Book Albums.

So, what are some of the other great reasons to book with us? Read on to find out more!

Top 5 Top 6 reasons to book Solorzano Photography for your wedding:

#1 What we do: We are amazing photographers! We know our portfolio speaks for itself -so you’ll just have to come in for a consultation to see more than what we have online and on our blog. We get asked to describe our wedding photography style and it’s hard to do, but here’s what I can say: -we take an artistic blend of contemporary and timeless images that celebrate and document a couples wedding day.

#2 Who we are: We are fun, personable, creative and really nice to work with from the first day we meet! Alex and I are a fun-photography-duo (we’ve been married for 8 years now and we’ve been photographing weddings together for 6 of them). We are on Facebook and Twitter with many of our couples developing friendships long before “the big day.” By the time you get your album there will be hugs and maybe even tears! But we are also maternity, newborn, child and family photographers so when we give our couples their album and are all done with their wedding it’s just a “See you soon!” and not a “good-bye.” We started as just wedding photographers, but when our couples began to start their families we grew our business to keep up! Roughly, 75% of our wedding bookings are based on referrals from past couples.

#3We are a boutique studio, we focus on quality; not quantity. We take a limited number of weddings per year so we can truly cater to the needs of our couples. We pride ourselves in customer service and strive to exceed all their (already high) expectations of us.

#4 We offer unique and fun services and products! We continually add products and services to keep up with the wants and needs of today’s couples. (Like our metallic canvases and our Preview Receptions.) Contact us for a no-obligation consultation to find out more!

#5 We offer album packages -all at an amazing value! We have packages to fit every budget and we offer no-interest payment plans. Additionally, you only have to put $400.00 down to reserve your wedding date with us (oh yeah, and we clear our ENTIRE day for just you! so you don’t have to have your wedding day’s time-line finalized to book with us -you just need to love us and be ready to sign on the dotted line!!!).

#6 We will give you a complimentary Signature Guest Book Album when you book with us at any time through January! So HURRY UP!!! Contact us TODAY!

In Memory of Nedie Garza

This breaks our hearts to write, but this was one entry we had to post.  We know we have not updated our blog in months, but earlier this week our hearts were broken with the tragic news that a beloved bride of ours, Nedie Garza, passed away.  Nedie had been battling a rare cancer (germ cell carcinoma).  She caught a blood infection earlier last week and her weakened body could not fight it off.

As photographers we’ve been blessed with many wonderful couples and families to photograph.  But Nedie and her husband, Jesse were a photographer’s dream!  They were not only photogenic and fun –they were the type of couple we could see ourselves becoming close friends with.

Sadly, not much time passed between Jesse and Nedie’s wedding and her diagnosis.  So many couples take their vows, fully intending to love and honor “for better or for worse” –but none ever imagine the worst would be just around the corner.  Jesse stayed by his bride’s side, loving and honoring her through each day.

Nedie was such an adventurous, fun, playful and loving person.  She was a joy to work with from the first day we met to the last email she wrote.  We are so honored to have worked so closely with Nedie on her wedding day.  On a day of such emotion and anticipation –she only had love for her new husband, care for family and uncontainable joy to express.

Jesse and Nedie’s photos have touched so many and we will always keep their dearly loved engagement photo (taken on the “Tea Cups” ride at Disneyland) on our website to honor the memory of Nedie and their joyous devotion to God and each other.

A special note to Jesse and  family: We are truly at a loss for words, but we wanted to honor her on our site.  Your loss is great, but we know the impact she has had (and will continue to have) on your lives is even greater!  We are praying for you all and we will never forget Nedie.

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

He heals the brokenhearted
and bandages their wounds.
He counts the stars
and calls them all by name.

How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!

His understanding is beyond comprehension!

Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

(Taken from Psalm 121; Psalm 147; and 1 Peter 5:7)
