This recent engagement session was done at Knapp’s Castle. However, Knapp’s Castle is not much of a castle anymore. Knapp’s Castle is a landmark ruined mansion in the Santa Ynez Mountains near Santa Barbara, California. This is an awesome place to take photographs, located in the Los Padres National Forest, the ridge-top site has a panoramic view of Lake Cachuma and the Santa Ynez Valley. It maybe a little hard to find, but once you get there the walk is short and not very difficult. We spent a couple hours there getting some great shots with the ruins and an a cool old swing that could be a little problematic to maneuver but once we got the hang of it the photos came together smoothly.

Kristine and Christopher were married at the historic and very cool Motte Museum in Menifee one of the most unique locations in California. Barn weddings have never been more popular and the Motte Museum is full of the rustic country charm that brides love. Surrounded by their family and friends the ceremony was touching and very personal.  Kristine and Christopher and their guests then enjoyed the reception seated under the barn roof filled with beautiful classic cars from every decade.

Kristin and Eric were married at one of Southern California’s hidden gems. Whispering Oaks in Temecula, California is an out of the way treasure that’s filled with tons of rustic charm. There are multiple areas for your use, including an awesome barn that we used later on for a cool nighttime shot. This place is easily one of the best kept secrets in Temecula. With an awesome rustic venue like this it only makes sense to have an award winning barbecue restaurant cater the event.  Later on that evening Kristin, Eric and their guests enjoyed the reception seated under the large sycamore trees and dancing into the night.

These images are from an awesome wedding that we recently did with a holiday theme. The event was held at the historic Vibiana’s. Vibiana’s, is a former Catholic church building located in Downtown Los Angeles. The building opened in 1876 and remained the official cathedral of Los Angeles for over 100 years. The cathedral was heavily damaged during the 1994 Northridge earthquake and went through intensive renovations. Now it’s one one the most premier wedding and event venues in Los Angeles. Vibiana is a beautiful venue, the architecture on the exterior and interior of the building is stunning. The inside space is imposing, grand, and just perfect to photograph. Danielle and Ryan and their guests then enjoyed the reception seated under the spectacular architecture. The flowers were spectacular and prepared by Nina’s Floral Design and Events. The remaining of the evening was filled with dancing and lots of laughter

Rosanna and Hany were married at an Orange County classic institution last Saturday at the historic and beautiful Tivoli Hacienda in Santa Ana one of the most time-honored locations in California.  The Hacienda, a historic ranch estate built in 1901, is the perfect location for your dream wedding and reception. Surrounded by their children, family and friends (many in from the Northwest and as far as New Zealand) the ceremony was touching and very personal. There was even an appearance by a close friend who happens to be an incredible belly dancer. This was very special to them because she was instrumental in them becoming a happily married couple. Rosanna and Hany and their guests then enjoyed the reception seated under the stars and dancing into the night.

Gregg and Stephanie tied the knot on a very hot Southern California day!  We started the day at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Chino Hills, with it’s gorgeous ‘A’ frame architecture, where Gregg and Stephanie said their vows and walked out as husband and wife.  Then it was off to a very unique venue for their reception at the Cal Aero Events in Chino.  It’s an airplane hangar that’s been converted into a large event space. The place was absolutely beautiful!  The old planes set up in and around the venue were an amazing touch to the Hangar. The high point of the afternoon is when the newlyweds made their grand entrance in one of the vintage aircrafts from days gone by. The plane taxied down up the runway and delivered them directly in front of their cheering guest. Now that’s a grand entrance! Later on that evening their family surprised them with a giant choreographed flash mob that got everyone up and dancing. Congratulations on your new lives together as husband and wife! Thanks for allowing us to share your day.

What a beautiful day it was when Rayna and Marlon said their nuptials.  I was excited about the wedding since Rayna and Marlon were both very familiar with my work after I photographed Marlon’s sister’s wedding last year. They were having their wedding at the very cool Rancho Sol del Pacifico, overlooking Malibu. What a fantastic place to have a wedding!  Our biggest challenge that day was the bright early sun but the sunlight soon changed as the bright day turned into beautiful afternoon light.  The reception kicked off with an authentic hula lesson given by an incredible trio of dancers. All of the guest joined in and it was soon turned into party central. I love the woodsy feel of the romantic images as well as those by the water.  Just a great day overall and I wish them the best!

Carissa and Tyler were married in one of the most beautiful and natural surroundings in the Southern California area. The 1909 Topanga Canyon is an out of the way hidden gem. The natural amphitheater allows couples to have their ceremony beneath an ancient oak tree. I can’t even begin to describe the incredible people that we were surrounded by on the day of the wedding. Carissa and Tyler are originally from the Mid-West and they had family and friends that made the trek out from Missouri for the big day. The onsite building is gorgeous, with Irish knot inlaid on the stone and wood, high ceilings and a built-in bar that made for a perfect hangout for their guests later on at the reception. One thing is for sure, Carissa and Tyler have some of the best family and friends anybody could ask for! Carissa and Tyler, we are so happy we got to share your special day with you and wish you many years of happiness!

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about a wedding. So without further ado, I am so happy to share some images from Mariel and Zach’s wedding from a few weeks ago. They were married at Tivoli Too in Laguna Beach, California. Tivoli Too is a stunning location surrounded by picturesque hills. The ceremony was beautiful and it incorporated some cool touches, like having the bride’s brother serenade them with his rendition of “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You”. Prior to the ceremony, the bride and groom wanted to do a “first look”. We moved on to Heisler Park for the first look and some formals with the couple and bridal party. I have to say that I had so much fun doing the formals! Mariel, Zach and their friends were just crazy and silly. They were just a joy to hang out with the entire day!

Kristin and Eric’s engagement photos at Malibu Creek Wilderness Park were filled with love and affection. Malibu Creek is famous for being the location for the old M.A.S.H television series. Malibu Creek State Park sits in 10,000 acres of rugged terrain near the Malibu coast, protecting flowing creeks, man-made lakes, historic structures, and prominent cliffs. Kristin and Eric were feeling adventurous, so they braved the rugged terrain for a few photos and I’m so glad they did. I can’t wait to photograph them again on their big day in December!
