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.

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!

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.

Katherine's & Christopher's Engagement Shoot

True love..

These two are so deeply in love and so excited to finally become husband and wife! I had the best time photographing these two. But the love that these two have for each other is absolutely adorable. For those of you that don't know when you first get engaged all of these mixed emotions occur and can become overwhelming at times....but for this power couple they weren't stressed at all. They had planned out a majority of their wedding and they were still about 10 months away. I was truly impressed....I won't lie my husband and I were quite stressed during those engagement months. The pressure of having "THE PERFECT WEDDING" can make even the perfect couple a little dingy. But at the end of the day every wedding is perfect in their own special way. We can not wait to watch these two say "I do" on the best day of their lives. 

P.s. If your ever in search of a gorgeous place to take family photos, engagement photos, etc. O'Neill Regional Park in Trabuco Canyon is so gorgeous and a true treasure.
