Los Coyotes Country Club Wedding

The sun was going down, and we were on the golf course. The bride wanted something special in the middle on the green. I took my small lightstand with one strobe on it, and placed it strategically behind the couple. I had done this many times in the past, so I knew what I was going to get. When I pulled the trigger, and showed the bride, her eyes lit up.

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.

First Look No Look

This was a fun wedding to shoot at Wedgewood Indian Hills. Both the bride, and groom helped create a bunch of fun photos. Here is one where neither the bride or groom wanted to see each other, but they still wanted a “first look” photo. We solved the problem by allowing them to hold hands around a corner with the entire bridal party looking on. The shot took an extremely wide lens to get what I needed, but of course I got it done.

Mission Inn Wedding

In Riverside, Ca. all the local brides want a Mission Inn Wedding. They have a beautiful well lit, bridal get-ready room, and a chapel that is second to none. It was hard for me to take a bad shot. The Mission Inn is one of my favorite local venues. This particular wedding was one of my favorite. The bride and all her bridesmaids were all gorgeous. That made it hard for me to take a bad shot. The only downer that day was the fact that it rained much of the day, and I had to shoot mostly indoors.

The Thursday Club San Diego Wedding

The Thursday Club in San Diego is a nice venue for wedding photography. It offers great sunset shooting, as well as a reception space with white ceilings for easy bounce flash. This particular shot was done with one strobe on a small light stand right in front of the bride. The strobe was triggered remotely and in manual mode.
