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.

Wileen & Jamie * Engagement Session



Clara + Russell * Dana Point Wedding

Clara and Russell. The cutest, sweetest couple you’ll ever meet. Their wedding day was full of pure happiness!

Family session {Madeline’s first birthday!}

I love this little family! We photographed Janice and Jonas’ wedding a few years ago, and then their maternity session, and their baby Madeline’s newborn session. Time flies and Madeline had just turned one so we had another family session with them to celebrate her first birthday! She is just the cutest!

And I love this series of ‘naked photos’!

Happy Birthday sweet Madeline!!

Meredith & Brendan * San Diego Wedding

Meredith and Brendan are one of the most adorable couples ever! Their wedding day couldn’t be more perfect – first look at sunset cliffs, ceremony at Harbor Island overlooking San Diego skyline and Coronado Bridge, and an intimate reception at Island Prime restaurant right by the water.  And oh their golden retriever also made an appearance at the wedding too!!  Every single detail was so well thought out and every moment of the day was full of so much love and joy.

I love the moment from their first look!

This is seriously the ultimate cake table!! :) All the amazing cakes are from extraordinary desserts!

Congrats again to Meredith and Brendan! :)

tor - beautiful wedding!

Lavender Farm at Sequim, Washington

Isn’t this lavender field amazing? I’ve been obsessed with lavender for awhile and it was a dream come true to visit a lavender field! This beautiful lavender field is called Purple Haze Lavender farm. It is located at a little town called Sequim, which is a 2 hour drive from Seattle.  The flowers were so fragrant!  It’s such a dreamy little place!

I hope someone will hire me to take their engagement or wedding photos there someday? :)
