Say "I DO" at the Downtown San Diego Courthouse

The downtown San Diego Courthouse is a favorite to document eloped couples saying, "I do." You have a choice of having an outdoor or private indoor ceremony. The historic 1938 San Diego County Administration Building (pictured) is located at 1600 Pacific Highway across the street from the City Harbor / Star of India. The Waterfront Park features fountains, urban walls, and a modern playground. Also serving Santee / Kearny Mesa and San Marcos locations.

Love is undoubtedly

in the air!

"Not only does Dennis Mock photographer have an eye for capturing the essence of the moment, but he also possesses the ability to find the perfect backgrounds and compositions"



Over the years, I have photographed more than 300+ Courthouse Weddings, so I can help be your guide, ensuring you enjoy your special day. Three days before the big day arrives, we will hop on a call to chat about the timeline, go over your family/friends list and cover any final questions.


When the big day has finally arrived, all you have to do is be entirely in the moment! Let's start with a first look, remember to bring the flowers!


I'll begin editing your images with our signature color and a few black-and-whites. One week after "I do," you'll receive your Gallery (downloadable); you'll be able to print, share, and enjoy every special moment. We do offer custom-designed albums that hold your Story.


Dennis is such a very wonderful, talented photographer. We enjoyed the session with him and he is very accommodating. He is very prompt and yet he never makes you feel like “time is ticking” and you need to hurry up. Very cool guy and very artistic. He would make you do poses you think are awkward but later on turns to be nice! Recommend this guy! - Lesly


holds your story

Printed on archival paper and handcrafted with great attention to detail, our high-end flush mounted albums lay flat and feature customization options. Starting at $450
