DUH!! {Allie + Adam, Europa Village Winery Engagement Session, Temecula Photographer}

Allie never had any doubt that she would marry Adam all he had to do was ask… which he did.  Allie was in Nashville with her three friends to celebrate their birthdays. She had been there for a day or so and while out to dinner one night, in walks Adam much to her surprise!! Allie was so excited to see him that she immediately jumped up to hug and kiss him.  Adam then asked Allie to sit down and not expecting any more surprises, she did.  Then he got down on one knee and said, “You make me the happiest man in this world. Your my everything, will you marry me?” and of course Allie said, “DUH!” 

Their session was shot over at the amazing Europa Village!!  This winery is so cute and has the sweetest little wine room.

Better Together… {Annie + Esteban, Wilson Creek Winery Engagement Session}

We had the best time shooting Annie and Esteban’s engagement session over at Wilson Creek Winery.  Annie is outgoing, bubbly, fun and not to mention gorgeous!!  Esteban was such a gentleman and we could tell that he is madly in love with his girl.  Individually the were amazing but together they are phenomenal.

We love that their first date was to the Griffith Observatory.  Not that there is anything wrong with dinner and a movie…but what a fun way to get to know someone.

Parallel Lives… {Katiy + David, Bernardo Winery, San Diego Wedding Photographer}

Up until they met, David and Kaity lived shockingly parallel lives.  They both grew up in North County San Diego, played competitive volleyball, attended similar churches, went away to college, and then straight on to law school.  When they finished law school, they both moved to downtown San Diego to start practicing law.  They lived 5 minutes away from each other. Worked 3 blocks away from each other and she even attended his church for awhile, but at a different service time.  So, how did these two meet you ask… online, of course!!  

Fast forward almost two years and the two of them are having a spectacular wedding over at the beautiful Bernardo Winery.

Now the best part about our space is that since we specialize in professional styling we can actually walk our brides through TWO massive showrooms full of Madam Palooza’s furniture and props.   They can physically see all of the rentals that they can use for their photography scenes with us!!  It kind of feels like our wedding albums came to life!!

True Besties… {Caitlin + Joe, Wiens Family Cellars, Temecula Wedding Photographer}

Caitlin and Joe got married over at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula Wine Country.  Their day was filled with love, laughter and a lot of fun.  We loved getting to know Caitlin and Joe over the last few months and the thing that we will always remember about them is how they truly are best friends.  The two of them met in High School over 10 years ago and remained friends ever since.  They dated other people but then when they were both single, Joe asked Caitlin out on a date (to DISNEYLAND) and they have have been together ever since.  We can totally see the years of friendship rooted deeply in their relationship and are so excited for their future together.

Something’s Missing… {Kari + Derik, Wilson Creek Winery, Temecula Wedding Photographer}

Kari and Derik’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful!!  From their gorgeous outdoor ceremony overlooking the vineyards to the bridal party decor to her tablescapes. Everything was complete and nothing was missing unlike the day Derik proposed to Kari- where something was definitely missing.  Kari relates the story to us,

He asked me to pick him up after work at a friends house down in Sacramento. When I pulled up he was waiting outside with both of our suitcases packed. He told me we were going to get away for the night to celebrate our anniversary. After a few mysterious turns we ended up at a boutique hotel in Sacramento with views of the capitol called The Citizen. This was the first hotel we stayed at together when we were visiting our new city. He had a date night planned with me- beginning with shopping for a new outfit for dinner that night. He had done an excellent job packing my suitcase. We walked to a local mall, I bought a complete new outfit, we grabbed some drinks at happy hour and then headed back to the hotel to get ready for our dinner reservations at a fancy and delicious place specializing in Farm to Fork food called The Grange. Just as I finished getting ready, he looked at me and said, “You look beautiful, but somethings missing…” Next thing I knew he was down on his knees pulling out a beautiful ring.
