The Hidden Castle Wedding | Roman and Zlatka

Beauty radiates from these two like warm sunshine. I’m serious – when you stand near Roman and Zlatka, there’s an infectious energy that will invade your heart. No matter what you’re doing or where you are with them, you’ll feel warmer, happier, and just plain joyful.

So you can imagine the insane energy these two radiated on their wedding day! Especially once Zlatka slipped on her downright stunning Ines de Santo gown. It made this already gorgeous girl simply angelic. And when Roman wrapped his arms around his once-in-a-lifetime love at their first look, the day went from happy to heart-bursting joyful!

Now, as you look through this wedding you might wonder if we were somehow transported from the hills of San Diego to the hills of France. But no, my friends. This very hidden estate called The Hidden Castle is modeled after a 15th century French chateau is right here in our beautiful city! Roman and Zlatka’s guests flew to San Diego from all over the world (Ukraine, Bulgaria, Russia, and even China were all represented!), and they didn’t tell their guests where the wedding would be. Instead, they had shuttles bring everyone to the mountaintop venue as a complete surprise! The 180 degree view alone from the terraces of the estate were enough to delight every single person – even the two of us!

Alex of Blush Botanicals simply outdid herself with the romantic floral design and Victoria Schroeder designed and coordinated a flawless day.


We’re a hubby & wifey wedding photography team that’s crazy about each other and obsessed with our #TYcouples.

About Us

We're Jeff & Erin

We believe your wedding day doesn’t have to fly by, and that you can remember so much more than you ever thought possible. You just need someone who’s been there before to help you savor. That’s where we come in.

Over our fifteen years of photographing weddings, we’ve learned how to walk with our couples, slow them down on their wedding days, and help them savor every last precious detail. 

But before we were photographers, we were just two kids in love – savoring our own love story that began with a crush in the college library. We got married, quit our corporate jobs, and never looked back. Ever since we’ve been traveling the world photographing weddings for couples we love. But no matter where our cameras take us, we’ll always be hand in hand, going on our forever-walk together.
