Falkner Winery Wedding - Temecula Wedding - Rainy Wedding Day

When you dream of your wedding you never dream that it will RAIN on your wedding day. I know, I said RAIN (the awful word every bride flinches at). This beautiful couple had the storm of all storms on their wedding day at Falkner Winery. They ended up getting married inside the barrel room and their wedding reception above in the Pinnacle Restaurant. You would never guess by the grace and pure joy that this couple showed that it was raining. They didn’t mind at all and we had the absolute best time stomping through the puddles and walking around in the rain capturing the most beautiful photos of this bride and groom. Please enjoy these amazing Falkner Winery wedding photos below.

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.

Kari's & Kyle's Wedding

First of all let me just say we love family estate weddings; they can be such a special bonus to get married to the person you love at a place that means the world to you. Well this beautiful couple chose to get married at the bride's family home. When we arrived at the family home we were in awe of the stunning location and the water front views. Such a beautiful setting for a perfect wedding day. 

Now this amazing bride had 3 of the cutest little sons that she had in a previous marriage. When we arrived at the bride's room we were expecting to see her boys with her, but they were in the grooms room. The groom had decided that soon they would be his sons too and that he should share some special alone time with just the boys before the wedding. To say this family was adorable would be a complete understatement. I have a soft spot for step-fathers that step up to be a father figure. We just couldn't help but fall in love with the amazing chemistry that these parents had for each other and their beautiful family. We couldn't of had more fun working this amazing wedding and are so glad we could capture their wedding photos that they can treasure forever.

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.

Temecula Creek Inn Wedding 

The amount of love and joy throughout this wedding day was astounding. We were so happy that we got to take part in this fun loving couples wedding at Temecula Creek Inn. 

When we arrived at this bride's hotel room she was blasting music with her girls and we knew at that moment this was going to be a really fun wedding to photograph. Our favorite weddings are when the bride and groom are just excited for the day with no stress. These two were nervous up until the first look; you could see the stress and tension disappear the moment they saw each other. The rest of the day was a dream between the gorgeous ceremony to the reception. The music was bumping at this reception and we couldn't help but boogey a little ourselves to the fun beats. 

This bride and groom picked the most beautiful venue; Temecula Creek Inn is just stunning and the staff is so awesome and easy to work with. In wedding photography your job is to make the wedding look as gorgeous as it was and let us just say Temecula Creek Inn made our lives easy! We honestly had the best vendor team at this wedding. We had the pleasure of once again working with my truly talented husband Brian with Love is Cinema; every wedding with him always goes just that much smoother. It really helps when your photographer and videographer have good chemistry together; it will make your wedding day go by even smoother. We also were lucky enough to work with Ian over at DJMC Ian B, talk about an awesome guy; he really made the reception a party....let's just say the dance floor was always full. We are so happy we were able to be a part of this fantastic wedding.

Nilza and Victors Maternity Shoot

We had such an amazing time with this beautiful couple at Aliso Creek Beach!

If you can believe it, this stunning woman was extremely nervous to be photographed....not that she would ever need to be nervous! The struggles of being a woman are enough to handle, but then add on pregnancy and sometimes it can be overwhelming for a woman. When you add a little bump you can tend to feel insecure.... We know taking photos can be so very intimidating anyway. But luckily we were able to get this beauty to feel comfortable enough to show her tummy off. :) So glad she decided to give us some awesome baby bump photos! These photographs turned out phenomenal I can't wait to meet this little bundle of joy and hopefully photograph the little munchkin. 

Being a lifestyle photographer can so often be so fulfilling. We love photographing weddings but it's always a good time taking photos of a beautiful mommy to be. We wish you two the best and just know that you will be the best parents ever!
