Kumar's Ranch Wedding - Corona

Southern California is known for its amazing weather, beautiful people, and stunning wedding venues... :) We as Southern Californians are so blessed with so many wedding locations to choose from. This hidden gem in Corona Ca. was the perfect spot for these two. What a wonderful day filled with so much love and beauty and of course dancing! The fun this bride and groom had during their first dance, father - daughter dance, and mother - son dance really set the stage for what the night had in store. The traditional “El Baile de la Vibora” or what many call the Mexican wedding dance or Mexican wedding snake dance was so fun! This dance had the entire room in an uproar watching as the ladies and then the gentleman weaved through the couple and around the ballroom. The band kept the night filled with men and women spinning around engrossing themselves into the salsa dance. We are so happy for this beautiful bride and groom. Their day was flawless and we are so glad that we could be their San Bernardino wedding photographers. Please enjoy some fun moments of this couple's beautiful Corona wedding day.

The Riviera Hotel Wedding - Palm Springs - Star Wars Wedding

It has been far too long since I have taken some time to continue our blog...so here it is! This wedding was actually May 4th, 2018; so many amazing things have changed for The Everlasting Photo since this wedding. I can't help but flash back. Since this wedding we have updated our cameras and equipment, we have a larger staff, now adding Dillon to our team, and we have just improved our style as a whole. Looking back on a wedding that we have had the honor of photographing is such a surreal experience and we are so elated to have the privilege to continue our dream of being wedding photographers. This Palm Springs wedding was the perfect day. These two clearly are hopelessly in love with each other and are obviously fabulous since they chose to get married on May 4th. This wedding was "Beauty and the Beast" themed for her and "May the 4th be with you" themed (Star Wars) for them both! We had the best time being this couple's wedding photographers. We know that their love will last a lifetime.

The Red Horse Barn Wedding - Huntington Beach, Ca

Being a wedding photographer has always been a dream of mine. Since I was 14 years old I loved taking photos. BEFORE cellphone selfies and before cameras that were so easily accessible as they are today, I loved photography. As I grew up and became an adult I have worked many different jobs from babysitting little ones, to helping set up weddings, to being a restaurant manager, and even working at a desk all day retrieving money for someone else’s company. During my last and final “job”, my husband (he was my fiancé at the time) looked at me and said, “honey why don’t you do what you love”. My amazing husband helped build me the confidence to quit my day to day job to start my own photography company and to be able to do what I love. I am one lucky lady (fyi if you're in need of a videographer my husband Brian is the BEST)! Check out his website - Love is Cinema :) Becoming a wedding photographer has given me such great joy. I LOVE all of my couples and am truly honored that I get to share a special part in their love story. This story leads me to this AMAZING couple! The love and laughter these two showed for each other was truly perfect. The Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach is just beautiful. Tucked into the heart of Huntington Beach this wedding venue is filled with trees and horses...a perfect spot for “romantics.” The venue is the perfect size and easily accessible to all guests. We truly had the best time at this wedding. You could tell this couple put in so much work to see to it that all those little wedding details were just right. Thank you to this couple for allowing us to be their Orange County wedding photographers.

Christ Community Church Elopement Wedding

Aren’t weddings magical? Most girls dream about their prince charming and of course the day they marry him. Some brides dream of puffy dresses, some of horse drawn carriages, and others of a Halloween wedding. This stunning bride found her prince charming in England. These two met at a friends wedding became best friends and eventually dated for several years. He proposed to her on Christmas in front of their closest family and friends. The true honest love these two share for one another is seen by all and purely beautiful. This brides dream wedding was at Christ Community Church where her father is the pastor. She had dreams of her father marrying her and their families surrounding them. The wedding was gorgeous and just the perfect amount of everything. We truly could not be happier for these two. Congratulations we are so honored that we got to be a part of your perfect day. Thank you for letting us be your Orange county wedding photographers.

Sierra Lakes Golf Club Wedding

What a stunning bride and groom inside and out! These two were such a blast to work with. The entire day was perfect from the stunning Sierra Lakes Golf Club, to the endless dancing at the reception. Being a wedding photographer in the Temecula area is so much fun. We feel so honored that we get to document the most important day of someone’s life. Our images will be something the bride and groom will cherish forever. Check out the gorgeous photos below from the Sierra Lakes Golf Club. Congratulations to these two! Thank you for letting us be your wedding photographers!

Thee Olde Chapel Wedding, Riverside

Our bride got ready at her family home where we captured her and her bridesmaids having a blast getting ready for her big day. We loved capturing these girls in their matching outfits! After photographing these lovely ladies we headed over to photograph some awesome moments with the guys. This groom and his groomsmen were nothing but jokes and laughs. Good friends are hard to come by but it’s clear this bride and groom found them. :) After photographing some fun moments of this groom with his guys, it was time to head the to the chapel.

If you're in search of an old world enchanting chapel, check out Thee Olde Chapel in Riverside, California. This chapel gives off such a romantic warm feel that’s absolutely perfect for a wedding. While it’s just moments before the wedding it’s time for this gorgeous bride to put on her wedding dress. While her mom and maid of honor helped zip her up, all the bridesmaids had tears in their eyes. To say this bride was stunning in her dress would be an understatement. She was beautiful and glowing in her long fitted wedding gown. With the bride all dressed and ready it’s time for this couple to say "I do." The wedding was perfect and filled with laughs, tears, and special moments to treasure forever. After the wedding we photographed the family, bridal party together, and of course captured some romantic photos of just the bride and groom.

The wedding reception was held in the backyard of the bride’s family home. This backyard was gorgeous and the perfect size for this intimate wedding reception. One of the best parts about having a backyard wedding reception is that you can do whatever you want to your own backyard. You can have actual candles lit, you can bring your own cake and serve whatever food you would like, etc. We love backyard weddings and the special intimate feel that they bring to a wedding day. This wedding reception was filled with awesome dance moves, laughs, and really tasty food. This was one perfect night filled with the couple doing a grand exit through a tunnel of all their closest friends and family and driving off into the night in a limo. 

We are so happy for these two newlyweds and know that they will have a lifetime of happiness together and hopefully lots have adorable babies!! Congratulations to the bride and groom and thank you for choosing us us to be your Orange County Wedding Photographers.

Private Estate & Pomona Valley Mining Company Wedding

This striking outside of the box wedding took place at a private estate, what made it so touch is that it is the grooms parents house. The 360 degree views at their estate wedding were stunning. They captured the haunting beauty of desert life right down to the magnificent Joshua trees. The estate was decorated with lush and beautiful flowers, an area with vineyards, and a majestic Arabian stallion to photograph with after the wedding ceremony. We love the unique way of photographing a private estate wedding. The innovative decorations are exclusive to just this bride and groom. Such a romantic place to celebrate love and marriage. Following the ceremony the reception was held at the Pomona Valley Mining Company. This spectacular venue is nestled on a mountain cliff with beautiful views. The reception ballroom overlooks the city lights making for the perfect location to celebrate.

Our Southern California wedding photography services were not only at this couples wedding, we also were also honored to photograph their engagement session. We had an outstanding photography session, allowing us to capture so many sensational photos. It's always a good thing to plan an engagement session with your wedding photographer. Having that photo session allows you to get to know your photographer and them to get to know you.  You want to make sure you get along well together and that you love the photos that you receive. Kathryn and Christopher are so thoughtful and kind, we loved being their wedding photographers. These two made capturing their love for each other easy for us. See below for some of our favorite photos through out their wedding day. 

Congratulations to this beautiful couple we wish you both a life full of happiness and love.

Rancho El Toro Wedding - Elegancia Events - Corona

This wedding is why we became wedding photographers. The pure love that this bride and groom show for each other is what most people search a lifetime for. Rancho El Toro by Elegancia Events is a stunning wedding venue, snuggled in a beautifully secluded area of Corona. This was our first time photographing a wedding at this venue, we had an absolute blast finding interesting and fabulous location's to do romantic photos with this couple. At one point we ended up behind the reception venue in what looked like an enchanted field. An absolute beautiful location and couple. 

This wedding was perfect from the moment we arrived until we left. The bride was slightly nervous but you saw those nerves flow away as she glided  down the aisle to the man of her dreams. She has loved her groom since she was 15, they were high school sweethearts. The ceremony was beautiful and sentimental there were plenty of happy tears. The reception was filled fun and laughter as everyone danced the night away.
We are so happy for this adorable couple and truly think their love will last forever. Thank you for choosing us to be your Southern California wedding photographers.

Melissa & Billy's Wedding - Wilson Creek

We LOVE when we have the privilege of photographing a wedding at Wilson Creek Winery. This wedding venue is absolutely stunning. We always have nothing but the best experience here. The staff is so helpful and organized. This wedding venue and their staff truly make being a wedding photographer a blast.

Most often then not our engaged couples have already chosen their wedding venue, before reserving our wedding photography services. Brides have been dreaming about this day for years and the grooms generally don't care all that much where the wedding is located, as long as their bride is happy. :) This lovely couple seemed to of chosen everything together. The bride and groom found the venue together, picked the flowers together, the wedding cake, the food that would be served, etc. She did find her own wedding dress along with a beautiful cover up all at Davids Bridal. This bride also had some amazing "something blue" shoes by Steve Madden. We are loving the idea of a bride’s “something blue” being her fun and funky shoes. It truly is so much fun seeing what all of our bridal couples decide to use for decorations, venue. Even the look of the wedding can vary based on the style and personalities of a couple. We are so pleased to congratulate this beautiful couple and wish them nothing but the best in all of their life adventures. Thank you for letting us be your wedding photographer.

 

 

Susan & Jonathan's Elopement Wedding

Weddings are so expensive nowadays. Why have a huge wedding? 9 out of 10 times couples choose a large wedding because their family wants to celebrate with friends and family. Obviously some brides and grooms choose to have a large wedding because it’s that special fairytale they always imagined. However what if you could have that fairytale wedding without all the cost?

So many couples are choosing to save their money and celebrate their love in a smaller way with a wedding elopement. For so many years eloping was almost frowned upon...it was how you got married when you weren't supported by family or maybe a Romeo and Juliet situation was taking place. Times have changed and elopement weddings are now filled with excitement and adventure. Brides and grooms are traveling all over the world, with a smaller budget getting married over a cliff or next to a waterfall. An elopement wedding allows the sky to be the limit as far as location. 

We are so excited to add to our packages an elopement wedding section. Our Elopement Wedding Package starts at just $1000, and this package includes two photographers. We are in love with this new wedding elopement trend and can’t wait to work with our future brides and grooms. We are available for any location whether it be in California or Ireland....we are traveling photographers excited to be able to photograph your dream wedding. 

Congratulations to this beautiful couple. We know you will find all the love and happiness in the world.  

Julie & Josh's Wedding - The Mitten Building

Never having had the opportunity to photograph at The Mitten Building, Nichole and I were so eager and excited to work at this fabulous wedding venue. Our first impression upon arriving at The Mitten Building, we were immersed by a strong red brick building. This romantic building exceeded our expectations. The upstairs wedding venue is a sight to behold, with elegant wooden floors, deep cardinal brick walls all being gently lit making this ceremony fill with ardent.

After enjoying the vast wedding venue it was time to meet our blushing bride. She of course was glowing and filled with excitement of the day. Many of our brides are often nervous about the ceremony, but Julie never once appeared to be nervous. She seemed truly confident in the love that her and Josh share and couldn't wait for the moment to say "I do" to Josh. 

The ceremony was brisk and suitable to their love. Our favorite part was the romantics we got to capture of the smitten couple. We had so much fun bringing this bride and groom onto the train tracks and capturing all their giggles and kisses. Being a wedding photographer our soul purpose is to allow our couples to relive their wedding day through pictures. Well, we also like to add in some added bonus romantic shots of just the two of them expressing their true honest love. This couple made that easy and we love the way their wedding photographs came out. 

Wedding photography in Redlands is a lot of fun and we truly enjoyed The Mitten and can not wait to capture more weddings in April at this venue. Congratulations to our bride and groom! We know your love for each other will last a lifetime!
