If you scroll down just a bit you can also see Michelle + Jared’s San Diego engagement session (captured by Zelo Photography of course).  They brought their “A”-game to the session, and again to the wedding!  Michelle + Jared got dressed at the Torrey Pines Hilton‘s (they also hold weddings at Torrey Pines Hilton) and that’s where we did their first look and really got the party started.  Then we headed to Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla for a beautiful wedding ceremony overlooking the ocean.  It was classic So-Cal!  Check out the following photos to see all the awesomeness.

If you or someone you know is getting married in La Jolla, at Scripps Seaside Forum, or any other La Jolla California wedding venue, be sure to contact Zelo Photography and get the ball rolling!

What’s not to love about this set of photos?  Michelle & Jared are super fun, and you can’t beat the cuteness of the their shiba inu pup Bronx  🙂  Shooting around a couple popular San Diego hotspots gave us a great backdrop for this engagement session.  We love the mix of the various architecture and that early evening light to make the photos nice and crisp.  If you’re still on the search for a photographer to shoot your engagement session (and of course the wedding too) be sure to contact Zelo Photography.  All the cool kids are doing it, haha!  🙂   We look forward to hearing from you soon!  Enjoy the photos from Michelle & Jared’s San Diego engagement session.


Emily & John were sort of a last-minute booking this past wedding season, but we’re so happy they chose us to capture all their laughter and joy.  When they showed up with their bikes we knew we could have some fun with them, and there was plenty of space to mess around….and fall, just in case anybody lost their balance!  As the sun set we got some really nice evening light and John pulled out his vintage medium format camera for a little more fun  🙂

We hope you’ll enjoy these engagement session photos, and as the upcoming wedding season is just around the corner and you find yourself on the hunt for a wedding photographer that’s just the right fit, we hope you won’t hesitate to contact Zelo Photography.  We look forward to hearing from you!  Also, be sure to check us out on Instagram and give us a follow: Zelo Photography on Instagram.


We visited Sedona Arizona for the first time back in 2013.  We rented an itty bitty teardrop trailer from Little Guy Trailers in San Diego and headed out, checking out a little bit of Historic Route 66 along the way.


We’ve upgraded our rolling hotel a couple times since that trip and have found that we really enjoy visiting Sedona Arizona.  Sometimes we head over there for a little getaway (and to hit the Bell Rock bike trail) and sometimes we pack a computer and just keep working!  On our most recent trip to Sedona we tried a little bit of long exposure photography.  We headed up to a spot that overlooked Hangover Trail and did a couple photos.  This first photo was a shorter exposure and the light coming in from the right side was the moonlight.  If you’re interested in the technical specs you can see them below the image:


Technical Specs:
Camera: Canon 5DMKII
ISO: 800
Focal Length: 50mm
Aperture: f5.0
Shutter: 25 seconds

We also shot a 2nd photo that was more time consuming because we wanted to do a star trail photo.  The brightness of the moon would fill our photo with too much light so we came back at 4:00am when the moon was no longer visible.  How dark is it at 4:00am out on a trail in Sedona?  Very dark…..for a few minutes anyway.  Then your eyes start to adjust and the small amount of light the stars give off slowly becomes brighter and you can actually see the ground in front of you.  It’s amazing.  But just because you can kinda see now, doesn’t make it any less spooky out there!  Every rustling leaf makes you think the dreaded javelina is coming to get you  🙂  Anyway, here’s the other photo we took.  The light coming in from the left side is actually from a couple particularly bright stars.  If you’re interested in the technical specs you can see them below the image:


Technical Specs:
Camera: Canon 5DMKII
ISO: 200
Focal Length: 50mm
Aperture: f5.0
Shutter: 1 hour

When it comes to star trail photography, a lot of people do image stacking rather than 1 exposure.  Image stacking is the process of taking multiple exposures (5-20 minutes long) and merging them together in Photoshop.  We may try that for a future photo but for the Sedona star trail photo above, we opted for one solid photo.

It’s so interesting to be out in the dark away from city noise, and city lights.  It’s amazing how many stars are out there and we can’t help but be in awe of God’s creation.

“He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.”
Psalm 147:4
