Old Town Temecula Engagement Photographers + Mt Palomar Winery Wedding Photography

These cuties trekked through 3+ hours of traffic to meet me out in Temecula, and somehow still arrived smiling and happy. We suggested we hop through Old Town before heading over to their venue because I love having two totally different backdrops for engagement sessions. I always suggest two outfits for engagement pictures, and I love having a more urban setting too, to give a bit more diversity to your images! I consider engagement pictures such a treat, so I like to take full advantage!

But seriously, with all the stress of wedding planning- getting pulled in so many different directions – either from family and friends, or even just trying to nail down your vibe for the event! Engagement pictures are a time where you get to just. focus. on your fiance. Sounds so simple, but it’s a luxury in madness of all the planning!  So, we take it slow, hit a few nearby locations, and even grab a glass of wine where we can.

These two are getting married at Mt Palomar winery, and wanted to explore the venue and have their engagement pictures there before the big day. So much fun adventuring around Temecula with you two! Congrats you guys!

Alta Vista Country Club Wedding. Rachel + Eric. Fullerton Wedding Photographers

I loved this wedding. A perfect summer party, a endlessly kind and considerate bride and groom, welcoming families, perfect dance party and beautiful backdrop. Alta Vista Country Club has an almost secret garden vibe. The ceremony site is set off to the side, with tall lush trees that give that perfect shade, even in the height of summer. The golf course is spread out, and there are so many beautiful locations to shoot! Thankful to have such kind clients, and such beautiful places to make some magic! Congrats you two!!

First look with dad! Alllllways a special moment!! 

LA aventure Engagement Session – Los Angeles Wedding + Engagement Photography

Edith and John made this session a breeze. They stopped by Urth Cafe on their commute home from work, we trekked through the Arts District together and then somehow made it over to the Observatory all before the sun went down. They embraced a little wind, a chilly afternoon, and an unexpected uber ride to the top of the mountain when the observatory’s parking lot was inexplicably closed off. As wedding photographers, we’re well accustomed to rolling with the punches and “make it work” is our slogan. I feel so lucky to have clients that also embrace adventures, speed bumps, and uber rides with ease. Thanks you two for being so kind and so FUN! Capturing your love and adventurous spirit was a pleasure!

Riverside Family Pictures. Sunny Winter Family Portraits Riverside CA

We chased the last little bit of light ands battled maybe the first chilly wind of Fall for these pictures, and it was so SO worth it. Let’s be real, that chilly wind probably brought it down to 60 degrees, but hey, it was sudden and we were underprepared! I love how that warm California sunset was showing off for us though, these hills were the perfect backdrop for this beautiful family!

I’m so lucky to have an excuse to see so many old friends around the holiday season so we can capture some updated family photos – Brooke coordinated my wedding and I literally would not have made it through that day without her! She now has THE cutest etsy shop The Painted Birch.

The Collins Family. Family Photographers Riverside CA

I can’t believe I’ve lived in southern California all of my life and never ventured out to Forest Falls. I mean come one, there’s a waterfall (flowing most of the year!) so. close. by! And it’s the mountains, like, without driving in the mountains. It’s kind of like you teleport. And for this mountain lover that somehow can get carsick while driving, it’s a wonderfully welcome surprise.  Luckily for me, this beautiful family wanted to take this year’s portraits there, because it’s one of their favorite local adventure day spots. I love getting to photograph families in locations special to them. And now I’ve got a new favorite adventure spot, and a great spot to see more fall color than we get down here at (basically) sea level!
