San Diego Fashion Shoot - The Traveling Dress Collective by Carol Merriman

The Traveling Dress Collective was born last year when myself and several other photographers passed around a dress. Each photographing it with our own vision. It was such an incredible process that this year we did it again. Only this time each of us formed new groups of photographers. Kristen Kaiser, Mari Trancoso, Coleen Hodges, Abbie Rose, Emilie Iggiotti  and Randi Kreckman are the amazing group I was lucky to work with. Please take some time to go look at all of their work, you wont be disappointed.


My gorgeous friend, Kelley, was gracious enough to model for me. We decided to include her son, because as you can see he is the coolest. I tried to go with a little more fashion/editorial vibe, but of coarse I'm always drawn to the yummy light. Elena Creazzo of Elena T Beauty did Kelley's makeup. It was a dream team.

Melissa and Lem - San Diego Engagement Session by Carol Merriman

The SoCal weather has been unpredictable but luckily we had a break and it was gorgeous day at Sunset Cliffs. The first time I met Melissa and Lem I could tell they were not only very much in love, but the best of friends too. This was even more apparent during our session. Can't wait for their big day.

Paris and Nathan - San Diego Engagement by Carol Merriman

What a gorgeous morning it was at Bella Terrace Estate for these two love birds engagement session. I don't often do early morning sessions, but the light was stunning. A new favorite for sure. This will be the backdrop for their wedding later this year. Cannot wait for that. Enjoy.


Mr and Mrs M - San Diego Wedding by Carol Merriman

I was honored and over the moon to document this special day. Its not every day one of your dear friends gets married. 

There are so many things I want to say about this couple and this wedding, but I can't quite put it into words. So I will keep it short and let the photographs do the talking.
