San Diego Wedding Photographer | Orange Turtle Blog bio picture
  • Orange Turtle Wedding Photography Blog

    Welcome to the blog of Orange Turtle Photography!

    I am Cindy and I am the main photographer behind Orange Turtle Photography. I travel throughout California for weddings and portrait sessions.

    A turtle is just a turtle until you give it color.  Once you give it color, all of a sudden the turtle has personality, emotion and life.  The turtle is now sun loving, ocean swimming, happy fun and chill.  Color helps you feel. So we have a choice to leave the turtle just a turtle... or to give the turtle color.  If you want to get in contact with me, email me at Thank you for stopping by!

Burlingame Fairview Crystal Springs Wedding

Tracy and Wally are the sweetest couple ever. We are really so blessed that we get to work with them.  Our day started off at their wedding venue, Fairview Crystal Springs Golf Course.

They have the cutest corgi puppy, Chad! You can follow him in instagram @chad_thecorgi.

In addition to the first look, Tracy and Wally also had a private vow exchange. It was the sweetest thing ever.

First family photo!

Reception venue – Koi Palace Daly City

I love this following moment – the DJ was singing his lungs out and grandma was having a blast!

Popping the champagne bottle together should always be this much fun.

You know the couple is loved by their friends when they won’t leave them alone on the dance floor! haha!

Yay! A picture of us with Tracy and Wally. Fun fact – we shot their wedding on our own wedding anniversary! So now we have the same wedding anniversary! Tracy and Wally – congrats again! You guys are a dream to work with!

Sindra + Tim >>> Berkeley Botanical Garden Wedding

I’m so very excited to be sharing this lovely wedding with you! Sindra and Tim got married at Redwood grove inside the Berkeley Botanical Garden.  It was absolutely enchanting!! Even though the entire week leading up to the wedding day had been rainy and gloomy, the sun broke out and it was a gorgeous sunny day. The redwoods, the sunshine, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. And the celebration couldn’t have been more perfect.  I am so very thankful that I get to photograph their special day.

Congrats again to the beautiful, happy couple! God Bless! Much love from Orange Turtle.

Victor and Shawna // Treasure Island Wedding

You guys! I love this wedding and this adorable couple! They got married on a rainy day. They had an outdoor wedding but during the entire ceremony there was not a drop of rain.  It was really amazing. When it was time to venture out to take the bride and groom portraits, it started to rain but nothing could dampen their excitement of being a newly wed.  Victor and Shawna – thank you for having me as your photographer, and being such troopers and let me photograph you in the rain!

Venue: Aracely Cafe at Treasure Island, San Francisco

Congrats again Victor and Shawna!

I am absolutely in love with this session! Grace and Leon are one of the happiest couple ever.  They couldn’t contain their joy of being together – they are absolutely the cutest.  We totally lucked out with the sunset light and sky! Everything in this session turned out to be exactly how I had envisioned it in my head and more.  I couldn’t be more grateful. High five to this lovely couple!
