It was a cold wintery day in Riverside, Ca. I was losing light rapidly. I only had a few minutes while the wedding planner was tapping her foot right behind me. I went straight to my go-to shot on a golf course, and the result was gorgeous

Shooting the latest band

As I was telling the groom and his friends to look out over my shoulder, I had the feeling I was shooting an up-and-coming country band.

Oceanside Beach Wedding

Shooting at sunset on the beach is one of my favorite situations to shoot in. You really cant go wrong. I normally combine natural and off camera lighting, and shoot many different poses. In this series, I asked the bride and groom to run from the water to the camera several times. This frame was my favorite. This shot really shows the couple’s personality, and I love it.

Temecula Creek Inn Wedding

The Temecula Creek Inn is one of my favorite wedding venues. It has rolling green hills, and picturesque trees. This particular shot was done with off camera lighting so the ambient light was controlled and subdued. It is one of my favorite in my wedding portfolio.

Was this from a movie

This wedding was a lot of work. It started raining, and then it rained most of the day. Most shots were shot with strobes, and my talent was being punished, and tested. After the ceremony, there was a break in the weather, and we were able to get a few shots off outside. This one was my favorite. One of the guests later commented on Facebook, “This looks like it was from a movie”
