Austin and Sam's wedding photographs were so much fun to capture. The smiles, tears, and special moments filled the day with opportunity. I have been a wedding photographer in Temecula for 11 years now and this has to be one of the most special weddings I have ever done. Ive known the couple for a long time. They were dating back when I captured Sam's Highschool Senior photos. She is such a sweet hearted person and comes from an amazing family. In fact, her brother Stone led the ceremony and her sister Saige sang a song at the reception that she wrote for the wedding! Talent runs in their family's veins.
Every detail at the wedding was gorgeous. Sam planned it beautifully. The table settings, signs, flowers, thank you gifts, etc. It all turned out perfect and you could tell it was heartfelt. There ceremony was in the shade under the tipu and oak trees next to this little pond. Stone did an awesome job. The ceremony was personal, funny, and heartfelt. Everyone had an amazing time. Dinner was authentic wood fired pizza. All kinds of artisan pizzas, and they were delicious.
One of the hardest things to capture as a wedding photographer, is the dancing photos. People are moving fast and its usually dark. With some off camera flashes setup I was able to get some great shots of Sam with her dad, and also Sam with her husband Austin. I hope you enjoy the teaser photos below.
