Fawn Christiansen Photography on the COVER of San Diego Exquisite Weddings Magazine!

I pinch myself a lot.. This job of mine that I love is pretty amazing. When I think of the big steps I have taken, especially in the beginning.. it was SO scary.. More like the LEAPS I took... Announcing "I am a Photographer" then I remember my first PAYING gig.. oh. it was stressful.
But with practice, determination and not being afraid to go for it..
well.. it is pretty wonderful when a moment like this happens..
San Diego Exquisite Weddings Magazine hired me to shoot a 12 page editorial for their magazine with a POTENTIAL cover.
I got the cover and it is on newsstands now.
I mean??
Seeing your work in print is beyond fabulous and walking into Barnes and Noble and seeing it, MY cover sitting all pretty.. all glossy and bright..
it is beyond surreal..
Man. I am one lucky girl.

San Diego Exquisite Weddings Fall Issue | Fawn Christiansen Photography

I had the absolute HONOR of shooting a 12 page spread for the Fall issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine. It was SO incredible. I still am in shock and teary as I think about the whole experience. The trust, the confidence and the support I feel from my Brides and the Industry are overwhelming. I don't know what I did to deserve all this amazing-ness... Thank you to everyone involved.. The talent behind this shoot was unreal. The vision of the editor, interviewing models, a stylist who puts the word STYLE in stylist, hundreds of thousands of dollars in wardrobe, flowers overflowing and diamonds sparkling.. It was an amazing dream..
