Graduation Photos - Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park

Congratulations to this beautiful graduate!! We had so much fun with this graduation session at Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park. This beauty wanted an outdoor feel for her graduation photos so we suggested Thomas F. Riley, a hidden gem in South Orange County. This park is filled with tons of rustic locations and golden fields. Since she was nervous (never having worked with a professional photographer) and didn't know what to expect, her mom was thrilled when we had her laughing for some beautiful candid photo moments. We truly had a wonderful time photographing this lovely lady. Graduation photos are so much fun and such a beautiful memory for the family to cherish.

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!

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.

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.

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.  

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!
