Cassidy and Russell wanted some beautiful pictures done in California for their Agoura wedding portraits. Only a week prior, they were married in Utah before making the trip down for their reception. In addition, Cassidy’s family lives in Southern California. So we met up with these two before their open house reception to take some shots in the open fields hidden in the hills. You could forget your rock and roll, it was all country side. What was there not to love between the fields of gold and flower crown?
We decided to find these wonderful oak trees hidden in the back trails to get the perfect scenery for these Old Agoura wedding portraits. In addition, you cannot see the trails from the main road. The locals consider this a hidden gem. It was a perfectly sunny day in California with some gorgeous lighting. The California light peeked through the trees while it was setting behind the hills. The setting was a fantastic backdrop that really made Cassidy’s bouquet of red and yellow flowers pop.
Cassidy is all about family, so when it came to her big day her sisters were right by her side ready to lend a helping hand. They did Cassidy’s hair and makeup by adding in a braid to compliment her flower crown and giving her makeup a more natural look that truly made this bride glow.
Real moments are always the ones that end up being our favorites. Nothing posed, just two people that love each other being who they are. As you can see, posing can never beat real emotion of a bride and groom.
Sometimes it requires a little extra work by our amazing couples to get the shots we are looking for. There are a million thistles in the fields of Old Agoura. While pretty, these thistles get into everything. Everyone had quite a few in their clothing by the end, but it was worth it.
This Las Vegas Country Club Wedding was full of love, friends, family, fun, and you can’t forget the beautiful backdrop of the Vegas strip. It was definitely a wonderful and unique scene that made this wedding extra special. As much as we love our Southern California weddings, it is always a fun experience for us to shoot somewhere different, especially when our bride and groom have fallen head or heels for their wedding venue.
At the Las Vegas Country Club Wedding Danielle and Chris wanted to make sure their guest were entertained in true Vegas fashion with a surprise dance performance by professional dancers to the song Despetico, as well as a dance performance by the bride herself with her backup dancer bridesmaids. Although this wedding was full of an array of brightly colored florals from the center pieces to bridesmaids bouquets as you can see Danielle wanted to make sure she stood out on her big day and boy did she with the gorgeous ball gown and all white bouquet.
We absolutely love how these bright and boldly color flowers pop on their black invitations. It’s not everyday that you come across black invitations, so we definitely had to give them center of attention in this photo.
We all know how brides love to accessorize, but we can’t forget about the groom. Check out Chris sporting this awesome watch for his big day.
Such a sweet moment that was shared between the bride and her bridesmaids after seeing their beloved friend in her dress for the first time.
This was such a great idea Danielle had to keep her dress a surprise from her bridesmaid until the big day. It was is much fun the be able to be apart of the awesome moment to capture it all. Their faces were priceless.
Shannon and Gregory had such a beautiful San Ysidro Ranch wedding. This luxury Inn is tucked away in the Hills of Santa Barbara. You will find the scenery to be both beautiful and relaxing. So many brides dream of a wedding at the ranch. Especially with their famous lavender garden which comes complete with olive trees.
