San Diego's Rising Tide Collaborate Shoot | Coronado Beach

San Diego's Rising Tide Collaborate Shoot in Coronado

Coronado Beach Photo Session

I’m excited to share the images from this wonderful shoot that was put together by such lovely creative in San Diego!  Over the course of a year, I have gotten to know so many wonderful ladies through the Rising Tide Society.  This group has been a huge encouragement for myself, and my business.  Each month there is a meeting to go over certain topics relating our small businesses.  All around the country and some parts of the world, small groups gather to do the same thing and this shoot was part of that!

Each group around the country/world had different vendors come together to create a shoot that represented their town and group of people.  Since we are based out of San Diego, our group went with a Mexican/Boho theme on the beach (Because when you think of San Diego the Beach most likely comes to mind)!  This Beach (Coronado) also happens to be my favorite San Diego beach!

Not only did this collaborative shoot give us all an opportunity to display our work for others to see our creativity and what we have to offer to the industry, we we’re able to get to know others even more, and connect with each other.  I’m so thankful for all the people I have met and most importantly, am able to connect with people in a non-competitive environment.  This is the motivation behind what the Rising Tide Society stands for, and if you haven’t seen the popular hashtag “CommunityOverCompetition yet, be on the lookout because this mindset is growing continually and you should definitely jump on board!  “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats”

My Bridal Shower!

Last weekend, my family and friends put together a bridal shower for me before I move to California.  I had such a great time and am so grateful for all of the people who came and helped make me feel loved on this day.  I'm also thankful for all of the hard work that helped make the shower fun and unforgettable.  My maid of honor is quite the crafty one and made beautiful decorations to decorate the church fellowship hall where we had the shower.  My favorite decoration of the shower definitely had to be the cake though!  All credit goes to Sweet Sues  bakeshop and coffee bar in North Beach, MD.

After my shower I am looking forward to my wedding day in 59 days even more!  If you didn't read about my blog post on my big move to California, you can read about that here!


Custom Layflat Albums

I love these layflat albums.  I can't get over the quality and sturdiness of them.  These thick paged albums are a different approach to a traditional wedding or portrait album.  Below I have samples of a 12x12 album and a 10x10 album.  With their ability to lay flat across a table, they can be used as a fun and new wedding (or portrait) album, or be used as a wedding guest book!

Relocating and New Adventures!

San Diego Wedding Photographer

So the news is out!  Erin Christine Photography is moving to San Diego, California! Sometime in the beginning of May I will be traveling across the country to get ready to begin a new life.  This move brings a lot of new changes and adventures for me.  The first, and the biggest change is that I will be a wife!!  I am so excited to be a wife and be married to my wonderful fiancé` Michael.  We are tying the knot at Michael’s church on May 22 with a reception to follow.  This will be the first time that most of my family has been out to the West Coast so we are all going to be experiencing something new!  After working with so many brides as a photographer, I can say those times have helped me in my own wedding planning but it is definitely a big difference being on the other side!  Lots of people have been asking me and making comments like, "Since you're the one getting married, who will shoot your wedding?!"  I am happy to say that the amazing Sposto Photography will be gracing us with her skills and photographing Michael and I's wedding day :)  We were able to meet with her while i was last in California and had our engagement pictures taken by her.  (Photos below)

The next thing I am excited about in making the move to California is restarting my business there.  For the last half a year I've held back on marketing my business here on the East Coast since I knew I was about to make the big move to San Diego.  Now that it’s getting closer to the date (136 to be exact, not that I'm counting or anything ;), I have been working on things to change my business and reach a new client base in California, so if you know anyone in Southern California, send them my way! 

I also want to mention that I am still booking weddings for the 2015 year, so if you're still looking for a photographer for your wedding, do not hesitate to go to the top of the page and click the contact tab :)
