Amanda and Michael: Lillie Biesinger- San Diego Wedding Photographer


I'm just going to warn you early on. These here photos-- they go on forever and ever. But I decided after staring and staring and trying to select some to delete to no avail... that since it is my PHOTO blog, I reserve the right to post an EXCESSIVE amount of photos .... especially when involving a GORGEOUS bride with the longest eyelashes you've ever seen.... and lots and lots of they-can't-help-themselves-cause-they're-not-married-yet kissing. I like kisses. Can you tell?


I grew up with Amanda in San Diego. When she asked me to shoot her wedding, I was ecstatic! until I read the rest of the email and realized it was during our Hawaii trip. So I pitched the idea of just doing a little pre or post bride and groom shoot. And they were all over it! We did it right before my trip, a few days before their wedding and I loved every second of it (accept when I let my 5D swing over my shoulder and whack the concrete. That was a bad moment. Turns out only the UV protector was cracked (thank heavens), but I couldn't get it off to see since the side was bent in too much. Luckily the the next day was kid-free which meant I had time to run around San Diego and make all the inconvenient errands necessary to fix it. Done. Hooray. Phew.)

Anyway-- doesn't it make you want to get married all over again? It does me.

Still Ross. Don't get any crazy ideas. Sometimes I just think every girl deserves to be a beautiful bride... LOTS of times. ;)

I love all of these! My favorite is the second to last set, the one on the right. The side view of her face makes her look so incredibly happy and alive. I really love it. Good job!

That brides hair is to die for! And I love that you got to finally shoot a temple wedding; even if it is just a pre-wedding shoot. Great job!

I wish I had such beautiful pictures of my wedding...lucky bride and groom. She totally looks like Amy Adams to me. What a beautiful couple and they look so incredibly happy! Your pictures are amazing!!

I was really hoping they were going to ask you to do their wedding, I was so excited to see that they did! But I didn't realize that you didn't get to do the actual wedding. I knew you would do a fabulous job with them and couldn't wait to see the pictures. I'm glad you posted a lot. Amanda is awesome and needed an equally as awesome photographer for her special day.

They look beautiful Lillie. I can see why you had a hard time choosing which ones to post. They look amazing.

Lillie- great job! These turned out so nice. I love the idea of doing pre-wedding shots. That way you can be up at the temple at a perfect time of the evening with the perfect sun etc. They are a great looking couple.

Hi Lillie! It's Bailey. I'm a blogstalker so I NEEDED to see these! Like my mom said, she looks so much like Amy Adams! Are they like sisters or something? Seirously - Great job, Lillie! You truly are like a life saver...even if you just take pictures!

PS ~ Did you cut your hair again or was it just the way it was done? It was cute. :)

Really beautiful pictures! Certainly no need to explain a rate change after a shoot like that one! You're totally worth it!

Either Kevin or Whitney, but lets be honest, it is probably Whitney said...

This is my favorite wedding photo shoot of yours. Great job!
