A Perfect Fit…{Kristen + Derek, Bandy Canyon Ranch Wedding Photographer}

Kristen and Derek got married at the beautiful Bandy Canyon Ranch in Escondido, California.  We loved all of the little details that went into their big day from the vintage doors at the end of the ceremony aisle, the vintage trailer they used for a photobooth, and the farmhouse tables at the reception.

Kristen looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress and was so much fun to photograph.  We loved the way they laughed together and how the world seemed to melt away around them.  We loved the way they looked at each other and the way Derek held Kristen’s hand.

Their ceremony was nestled in the center of these beautiful rolling hills and was absolute perfect fit for them.  We could tell that they took the time to find a venue that truly represented who they were in every single way.

Thank you all SO much for choosing us to be a part of your wedding day.  We absolutely adore you all and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!!


That’s Amore…{Kathleen + Demery, Miramonte Winery Wedding Photographer}

Kathleen and Demery got married at Miramonte Winery in Temecula Wine Country.  Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful, whimsical, romantic and fun.  We loved all all of the soft hues of pink, purple and gray that were used to create her wedding.  Kathleen made for a stunning bride and Demery was looking pretty dapper himself.

Their ceremony was sweet and overlooked Miramonte’s beautiful vineyard.  To say these two are madly in love would be a tragic understatement.  Demery adores Kathleen and she adores him.  They are one of the sweetest, most loving couples we have ever gotten to know.  They truly enjoy each other and being around them is a breath of fresh air.

Kathleen and Demery, we admire the love and devotion that you share with one another.  We were so blessed by meeting you all and even more to share in your big day.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for choosing us to capture your journey.

Picture Perfect…{Cindy + Mike, Marbella Country Club}

Cindy and Mike’s wedding over at Marabella Country Club was absolutely beautiful.  We have been looking forward to their big day for quite some time.  Ever since their engagement session over at the railroad tracks…we couldn’t wait to photograph them on their wedding day.  They are one of the most fun and loving couples that we have had the pleasure of working with.

Our favorite part of their day was their wedding ceremony.  We love how the ceremony overlooked the golf course with the all of the tall trees and luscious landscape.  We seriously could not have asked for a better location…it was picture perfect!!

Thank you all SO much for having us be a part of your special day!!  Congrats!!


Happily Ever After {Cessa + Kyle, Vintage Elegant Temecula Winery Wedding}

We are SO in LOVE with the styled scene that our good friends over at Touched by Time Vintage Rentals came up with for one of our favorite couples, Cessia and Kyle.  From the burlap and lace bunting banner to the Mr. & Mrs. Pillow that adorned the vintage white sofa, to the fresh raspberries and vintage pearls…they really thought of every detail.

Cessia and Kyle were high school sweethearts and recently got married over at Villa De Amore.  They are one of those couples that are crazy about each other and being around them just makes you feel…happy.  Cessia had the most radiant smile and we could tell that Kyle was utterly and completely smitten with her from just the look in his eyes.  They truly loved one another and that is why we do what we do.  For couples like them that take us to a place of…happily ever after.

Thank you all so much for having us be a part of your wedding day.  We are SO happy for the two of you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you guys.

A Sweet Surprise…{Skyla + Tommy, Ranch Wedding Photographer}

When we first met Skyla and Tommy, they made two things very clear.  The first was that they wanted to get married in the fall and the second was that they wanted BOTH of us to be at their wedding.  But there was just one problem…we were booked solid in the fall and on any given Saturday/Sunday only one of us could be there.  So, Skyla and Tommy…changed their wedding date.  We were completely humbled by their willingness to accommodate our schedules and were incredibly blessed to share in their day.  Words cannot even begin to describe how beautiful everything was or how honored we felt to be capturing it all.

The wedding was held at this beautiful ranch estate out in La Cresta, CA.

The ceremony was nestled in the midst of all of these beautiful tree with an arbor that was adorned with flowers.

After their ceremony we took them around the estate for some amazing portraits out in the meadow.

Their reception was full of vintage burlap and lace  accents with pops of purple.  We loved how the table runners were monogramed with their last name initial.

But the best part of the night was when Tommy surprised Skyla.  Instead of a typical wedding video montage, Tommy and Skyla put together a video montage with two interviews that neither of them had seen describing their first date with a special message to each other.  Little did Skyla know that Tommy also included a secret video of him proposing to her that Skyla had no idea existed!!

Thank you all SO much for having us share in your day!! We LOVED getting to know you all and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you!! Congrats!!

Just Lovely…{Michelle + Emerson, Murrieta Wedding Photographer}

Michelle and Emerson are such a lovely couple.  They are playful, kind, sweet and so much fun to be around.  Our favorite part about their session was Michelle’s smile.  Her smile was radiant and it made us happy to see her so happy. Emerson just adores her and we can’t wait for their wedding day over at Callaway Winery.

Afterwards, we headed over to one of our favorite coffee shops to mix things up a bit.  We just LOVE the architecture on this building and had fun playing around with different angles.

Thank you all so much for having us be a part of your big day!! We are really looking forward to seeing your wedding plans come to life.  Congrats!!!
