jess and christian…peek into wedding day with film portraits

A few weeks ago, I was so lucky to share in one of the most lovely wedding days in beautiful Temecula wine country.  The venue was so gorgeous…and the couple so intensely in love.  I witness love shared between all my wedding clients…but the love between Jessica and Christian is different.  They fit together on an emotional level that I dont see very often.  Their love is true, unconditional, and they define what I think of as soul mates…just so good together.  I love that they found each other and that they are now together to share this life side by side.  This day was a beautiful start to so many wonderful things that will come their way.  So much to share to tell the story of their day, but today I highlight the feel of the day with some film portraits I shot.

Hope you enjoy…

anderson fam…riverside family photo session

I have been taking this season at a pace that is designed to keep me happy as a balanced momma and as a photographer!  I have been so blessed to take part in stylized shoots, shoot gorgeous weddings, and even shoot a very limited number of family sessions.  Every photographer can tell you of the chaos of holiday photo season!  It is so bittersweet, as we love to get our hands on beautiful families, but the pace can be pretty grueling as well!  I am so lucky to take work here and there and SO excited that I got to spend a little time with my friends the Andersons.

The genetics in this family is pretty insane…gorgeous people and amazing athletes to boot.  Just all around good people…and I am grateful to know them.

We stole away an hour os so between the pace of soccer saturdays and everything else we are juggling, and I am so glad we did!  Such a fun photo shoot and ridiculously CUTE kiddos!  It was a win win!

I will let the images tell the rest…hope you enjoy!

alex and ryan…temecula wine country wedding

this last month I shot the beautiful wilson creeek winery for a gorgeous wedding of some beautiful people!  Such a pleasure to document this wedding day!  Portrait time was super slim, and so I only snuck in a few film images, but they will kick off this post.  Be sure to watch the slideshow of the digital captures that tell the story of the day! Alex and Ryan…you two are amazing and a perfect pair!  Hope you are loving married life! xoxo

(thank you so much Tegyn Friedman Photography for second shooting me!)
