Kimberly Crest House and Gardens & The Mitten Building Wedding

Wedding Photography is a one of a kind job. We have the honor of seeing our couples fall in love all over again as the say "I do." This wedding was especially dreamy. The pure elegance of this venue makes this place one of our favorite places. This beautiful couple picked the perfect place to get married. Kimberly Crest House & Gardens is a one of a kind location filled with trees that could touch the sky and enchanting architecture all in one which makes for stunning wedding photos. 

Once these two became husband and wife everyone headed to the wedding reception which took place at The Mitten Building. The Mitten Building is filled with red brick that adds warmth to the room with the added touches of the couple this venue was the perfect reception site. We are so glad we could be their Riverside wedding photographers. We wish these two nothing but the best and a long happy marriage together.

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.

Krystal & Josh at Pearl Beach in Laguna Beach

What a fun couple! These two were a blast to work with! When they arrived on location these two had a large duffle bag. We weren't quite sure why until Krystal smiled and said we brought a ton of outfit changes. :) We were thrilled to hear this! It makes our job so much more fun to try different styles based on clothing. This obviously made our job of being a couples' photographer easier because they are a good looking couple! But the amount of giggling, smiling, and obviously love they showed for each other really show in these photographs.

Being an Orange County wedding photographer is such a rewarding job. Not only do we have the privilege of capturing the happiest moments of a couples life (their wedding day), but we also get to capture their love before the wedding while they are engaged. Being engaged is such an amazing, exciting, stressful (just because planning a wedding is overwhelming), and of course life changing time in a couple's life. We have the joy and privilege of capturing the giggles, smiles, and cuddles of our couples before they say "I do".

When our couples reserve our services for their engagement session and wedding day, our goal is to be a support system. We are proud to say we have experience in the wedding industry and we have AMAZING vendors that we work with. We are always available whether by text, phone call, or email for any questions or concerns. We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our brides and grooms because we love what we do. We believe our Orange County wedding photography speaks for its self.

 

Hayley & Spencer at Treasure Island Park

We had the best time photographing this couple at Treasure Island Park near The Montage in Laguna Beach. These two have been together for a long time and are clearly so in love. We had all smiles with this beautiful couple. It's always such a pleasure photographing someone else's love. To say that Nichole and I love our job would be a complete understatement! There is nothing better then loving what you do. We are so lucky to be wedding photographers and be able to capture lifestyle photography. Thank you both so much for allowing us to photograph you! You two are a beautiful couple and we loved working with you both. We hope to work with you both soon! 

Samantha & Brady Wedding

It's hard enough for two people to fall in love. When you add a child it can sometimes make things more challenging. I hold a special place in my heart for step parents. My mother and I were lucky enough to have my step dad. He helped raise me from when I was a young kid and I am so grateful to have him in my life. I realize now as an adult that it takes a special person to take someone else's child and take them in as your own, I was lucky enough to have that. So, I must admit this love story truly pulled at my heart strings. This stunning bride found the perfect man. He absolutely adores her and her precious daughter. This was the very first wedding that we actually cried at (we don't suggest taking photos while crying -lol-)! This bride and groom chose to deliver handwritten vows. OMG!!!! Let's just say there was not a dry eye in the audience. Her vows were filled with so much love, and he even added vows to her daughter. They brought the little girl up and the groom read them aloud to her, such a touching moment.

Once the mushy gushy stuff was done these three were ready for the party! They had tons of fun dancing their hearts out and of course enjoying all the fun laughs with their guests. These three are such a fabulous family and we just know they will be together forever! Thank you both for allowing us to be your Orange County wedding photographers on your wedding day, it was truly a perfect wedding and we just know you both will enjoy a lifetime of happiness. We can't wait to photograph your events in the future!

Orange County Couples Photography


This awesome couple was too much fun to work with! They wanted their couple photos be taken at a local park in Lake Forest. They felt that since they are both kids at heart that it was the perfect spot. I actually photographed the these two about two years ago! I can’t believe it’s been that long.... but I had to share this super fun photography shoot. We love capturing the fun raw emotion of our couples. During this couple’s photography session it started pouring rain!! But we rocked it out anyway and we think these photos were definitely a success. Thank you two so much for allowing us to be your Orange County photographer. We wish you guys both the best in everything you do!

Sierra & Brandon at O'Neill Regional Park

Christmas pictures is always a must this time of year. But we know finding the perfect photographer can be a journey. Just always remember that one of the most important parts to picking your photographer is that you feel comfortable with them. You have to be able to loosen up and have fun with each other, so that your photographer can capture those fun candid moments together. 

This awesome couple is our cousin and his beautiful girlfriend. We had a ton of fun photographing these two. As photographers we are constantly offering to photograph our families, it always helps to practice and try new poses with our non paying clients. We are so lucky to have such an awesome family. Thank you both so much for allowing us to be your Orange County photographers. :)

 

Valerie & Kurt Idyllwild Wedding

When we are chosen to be someone's wedding photographer, we consider it to be the ultimate compliment. We know that we have a lot of competition in the wedding photography industry (especially in the Orange County area) and we know there are a ton of amazing photographers. We feel it comes down to, obviously our photos, but also the connection that we are able to form with our clients. These two were like our long lost friends. This bride and groom were way too much fun to work with and we couldn't be happier to be a part of their wedding day. 

When we arrived at the venue we immediately fell in LOVE. To say we had a million locations to take romantic pictures would be an understatement. Once we looked around for a bit, we met up with our beautiful bride Valerie, in a quant cabin in the woods. We had a blast photographing her getting all done up and taking her into the field to photograph her by herself. :)

Then it was time for the first look. The bride and groom were both a ball of nerves but both felt that they would calm down once they could see each other. The first look was a complete success; he was emotional seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time and we had a wonderful time capturing that serene moment.

Capturing romantics before the actual ceremony is always a good idea. It gives the bride and groom an opportunity to calm their nerves and just have a moment together. This couple was game for any and all of our photo ideas. We had this awesome bride traipsing around in her wedding dress and sandals all over the forest. But the results were totally worth it. So many awesome nature photos for this couple which was exactly what they were hoping to have. They are both avid hikers and really enjoy the outdoors. 

The ceremony was intimate and romantic. You could just feel their love for one another...there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to be their Orange County wedding photographers. We know that this couple will last a lifetime and then some. Congratulations!!  

 

Daisy & Jose Eagle Glen Golf Club Wedding

If you haven't had the pleasure of attending a wedding at Eagle Glen Golf Club, you should at least try a round of golf there sometime. This venue is simply gorgeous and full of awesome photography spots. Such an awesome venue! 

This gorgeous bride had two wedding dresses which is always fun for us! Having two dresses on your wedding day never used to be a "thing". But I think it's super fun and gives the bride a chance to have that classical timeless look her family may desire while still being able to have that fun "dance party" look she may want. We say "thumbs up"! 

We loved working with this bride and groom. Photographing weddings is always fun but when you have an awesome bride and groom like Daisy and Jose, it honestly makes the day that much better. Thank you both so much for letting us be your wedding photographers. We know you two will have an amazing marriage together.

Shantei & Sean Ayres Hotel Wedding

We love photographing people in love! These two are so in love and we couldn't be any happier for them. This fantastic bride doesn't live in California so she had to plan her entire wedding from another state (that is some tough stuff to do). But everything was so gorgeous and perfect.

This was a "Beauty and The Beast" theme wedding (who doesn't like Beauty and The Beast...)! Such a fun theme. We couldn't help but tease Sean the entire day that we knew who must be the beast. :) The wedding took place at The Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa. The ceremony was next to this lovely fountain and the entire wedding was so dreamy and intimate, just the perfect setting! The staff at The Ayres was AWESOME to work with and the coordinator Rolanda with Vision into Reality Events is AMAZING! She is definitely the best and if you don't already have a coordinator, you need to hire her! She will give you the most beautiful wedding day and keep you happy and laughing the entire day. For a wedding photographer it is always more fun when we have a coordinator that keeps you up to date and is there if we need anything, and she WAS! 

Overall this wedding was absolutely perfect we are so happy for this beautiful couple and wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world! Thank you again for letting us capture your fabulous wedding day.

Josie & Gunnar Just Because Shoot

As some of you may know The Everlasting Photo is a small family run business made up with two sisters (Amber & Nichole). Well this photo shoot is particularly special to us because this is our handsome brother and his gorgeous girlfriend (who the entire family adores). As his sisters, we felt that we could bribe him into letting us photograph the two of them...it worked :). We ended up deciding that Laguna Niguel Regional Park was the best pick for the style they were hoping to capture. What a gorgeous park! We had the absolute best time laughing and photographing this amazing couple. After spending more time with these two together I must write, when two people just click everyone around them sees it too. Well I think I speak for everyone that knows this awesome couple that THEY CLICK and we are so happy you two are happy. Thank you both for letting us use you as guinea pigs and for practice (photographers constantly should be striving to improve...right?!) You two were the best!
