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!

Package me pretty – USB drives

Today I’m going to show off a little bit of the USB flash drives that we got for our clients! All of my clients receive digital photos from our packages so these USB drives are such an essential part of the delivery.  The natural wood finish is perfect for our brand.  I also love the laser engraving of our logo on the USB!  I love the texture that the engraving created.   In case you are wondering, I got these USB memory sticks from USB Memory Direct. They have a ton of different styles to choose from. I was wavering between this Tower design vs. the Scout Wood design. But in the end I opted for a simpler design of the ‘Tower’.

I get so excited every time I package up these USB drives for my clients.  Click here to see the product page of the Tower wooden drives if you are interested!

Northern California Los Altos United Methodist Church Wedding || Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Reception

A couple of weekends ago we had the pleasure of photographing Vicky and Jon’s wedding. They are such an adorable couple. They are so easy going and loving and it’s no wonder they are absolutely loved by so many people!  After shooting the wedding I am totally inspired by them to be more giving and generous and loving.  Congrats to this lovely couple again. So happy that they found each other.

I love the first look moments!

Love this moment of the father and daughter dance!

His and her drink. The bride loves IPA.

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.
