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.

Christine & Mike * San Diego Engagement Session


I absolutely adore this engagement session! Mike and Christine are a dream to photograph!

Karen & Calvin * Engagement Session

Karen and Calvin are like the most adorable couple you’ll ever meet! They are just so happy and cute together and it was a joy to photograph their engagement session. They drove all the way from San Francisco Bay Area to San Diego for their engagement session and we had such a fun time exploring downtown San Diego!

I love the layer of trees and shades in the following photo! The afternoon sun was absolutely perfect.

And we ended our engagement session at Ghirardelli Chocolate for some amazing ice-cream! Such a perfect ending!

Lauren & Marc * San Diego Hotel Del Wedding

When you have a gorgeous bride and handsome groom getting married at the most iconic venue that is Hotel Del, you know you’ll have an amazing wedding in store! Not to mention that there was also an incredible lion dance performance & a dessert table with all the sweets to die for! There was just so much love and energy in this wedding that made this celebration so unique and special. Congrats again, Lauren and Marc!

I love this moment right after they became husband and wife!
