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

    Welcome! We are Cindy and Daniel and we are Orange Turtle Photography. We are based in San Diego but we shoot weddings throughout California.

    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 fresh.  Color helps you feel. So we have a choice to leave the turtle just a turtle... or to give the turtle color.  That's exactly how we see wedding photography.  Feel. In. Color.

Michelle & Merik * Rancho Bernardo Inn Wedding


Michelle and Merik got married at the beautiful ground of Rancho Bernardo Inn. I’m posting a few of their wedding day portraits here first because I am so in love with these images! A full wedding post will definitely come soon. In the mean time I want to share with you the warmth of their joy and happiness!

Bonnie & Edwin * San Juan Capistrano Franciscan Gardens Wedding

The most adorable couple + beautiful venue + super cute details + rainbow and sunshine = one magical day.

We walked over to the Mission for the bride and groom portraits and discovered an amazing coincidence – Bonnie and Edwin got married on Nov 1 and Mission San Juan Capistrano was founded on Nov 1, 1776!!

During the ceremony, it started drizzling a little bit. But then it stopped after a few minutes. The sun peeked out and a rainbow appeared! It was magical!
