Thomas F Riley Wilderness Park Engagement Session

Such a dreamy engagement session at Thomas F Riley Wilderness Park!! These two have so much love for each other…we can’t wait to watch them say “I do” next weekend!! As I say in EVERY engagement post, I LOVE engagement sessions!! Two people completely in love with each other announcing to the world they will be spending their lives together ……. what’s not to love? We could not be more proud of this session! Check out our work below as 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.

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.  

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! 

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!
