Southern California Wedding Photography: Glass Woods Media

Hi, we are Jake and Tasha Austin from Glass Woods Media. We are a husband and wife photo and video team, working out of Huntington Beach, CA. Our work takes us all over beautiful Southern California and we love getting to travel around with our cameras to capture life’s special moments.

One of our favorite shoots of the past year brought us down to sunny San Diego for an elegant September wedding. Our day started with the bride and groom at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.

We always arrive a little early to our shoots to get a feel for the location and to scout out the best spots for photos. We couldn’t resist using the grand entryway and the palm tree studded front walk for our bridal party shots. It just seemed to capture the mixture of an elegant and a beach-y vibe that characterized the day.

We shoot in a natural, photojournalistic style, capturing candid moments throughout the day. However, we are always game to rearrange the furniture for the sake of an epic shot!

Our second location for the day (and an all time favorite) was Tom Ham’s Lighthouse. It is a fully functioning lighthouse that also houses a fantastic restaurant and bar. It’s sweeping views of the San Diego Skyline and Harbor left us speechless.

After an especially sweet and emotional ceremony, we stole the bride and groom away for a private portrait session, where San Diego gave them the best wedding present of all... an outrageously spectacular sunset!

We love playing with natural light in our photos, and this sunset had us in heaven. That brilliant orange painted an unreal backdrop for this gorgeous pair. We are all about capturing life’s most vibrant moments and preserving them in a way that is personal, timeless and elegant, in order to tell beautiful wedding stories in a way that does them justice.

This combination of capturing the beauty of nature, while getting to know amazing couples, is really what keeps us going as photographers. We love building connections with people, and capturing their unique personalities. Everyone has a different way of expressing themselves and expressing their love, and we love that we get to see that up close and personal!
