  • Everything was PERFECT for the wedding photography at San Marino Presbyterian Church..!!! Architectural and Environmental settings were absolutely BEAUTIFUL for photography. I found many good photo spots for B&G, Group and Family portraits. This church became one of my favorite wedding ceremonial sites. The Bride's waiting room was pretty.
