New Engagement Book Design!

Long story short this is easy reading, a book full of engagement photos! You can checkout the design at my client proofing site . I created the layouts in photoshop, by hand, so no templates or auto-robotic layouts. Yes, it takes more time this way but I have 100% creative control.

I will post some photos of the book once its fabricated. We are going with ebony distressed leather and a cameo window on the cover. My next photobook project will be for a wedding vow renewal I will be shooting this weekend. The bride would like me to these new photos and also incorporate her original wedding photos into the design as well. So there will be some scanning involved, since they didnt have digital cameras 15 years ago. If your interested inhaving me create a photobook for you all of that info can be found here at my Photobook Info page.

Brad+Julie at Villa De Amore

The Slideshow
One of the creative options for showcasing engagement photographs is with a slideshow. The bride and groom get to customize thier slideshow by selecting their favorite photographs and love song. The final product includes a DVD with full menu and a movie file for an iPhone, computer, and facebook (see sample below).
The DVD is often used at the rehearsal dinner or even for the guests to view during cocktail hour at the wedding. The opportunities are endless. Of course this product is also available for wedding photographs, and is quite nice since the dvd menu can organize the photographs into "Getting Ready," "The Ceremony," and "The Reception."

The Shoot
This sample features Brad and Julie's, great idea of having their engagement photos taken at the beautiful Temecula Vineyard known as The Villa De Amore Estate. Its a private vineyard in Temecula that is absolutely gorgeous. The place is a temecula wedding photographer's dream, hundreds of great backgrounds and the artistic features of the vineyard are endless. They include rows of grape vines, statues, sculptures, fountains, roses, archways... I could go on and on! Bottom line is that this engagement photography shoot in Temecula was a blast and I am very excited about their upcoming wedding this summer.
As a Temecula Wedding Photographer I love opportunities to shoot special events in my own community. Temecula Wedding Winery Photography is something that I am hoping I get to do a lot more in the future. So stay tuned, this summer I will have Brad and Julie's Wedding showcased here as well as my portfolio as evidence of how beautiful these events are!

Engagement Shoot in Encinitas, Ca

Its spring and the beaches are warming up, woohoo! This engagement shoot with Christan and Cor went great. The skies were blue, the sand was white, and that fresh spring feeling was in the air. We shot at Encinitas near Moonlight Beach (one of my favorites).

I am quite excited about the Engagement Signature Book I will be designing as their guestbook for the wedding. I have some great ideas for the page layouts and will create another post for it once complete. Without further ado, here are some of my favorite engagement photographs from the session in Encinitas. Heres a link so that you can check out the rest of the photos from this engagement session in Encinitas.

A Groomsmen's Perspective...

The insatiable urge to take pictures, maybe some of you can relate to my condition? When I witness something beautiful, whether a sunset, waterfall, or in this case wedding I just cant resist, and have to get my hands on a camera! I'm a passionate San Diego Wedding Photographer, what can I say!

I had the honor of being a groomsmen in Landon and Alyssa's Wedding, and man was it tough holding back. I got through the entire ceremony without a shot... whew!!! But before and after, I had to sneak a few candids in. Lots of people bring cameras to weddings, right? I think I actually blended in, somewhat, I hope!

VW Beetle Wedding GetawayBy the way this wedding took place in Escondido at the Escondido Country Club. It was a beautiful venue for a wedding and hope to shoot a wedding there in the future. Wedding Photography in San Diego accounts for about 50% of my gigs, so I imagine I will sometime in the future. The other 50% is Wedding Photography in Temecula, actually since I live in Temecula I would say Wedding Photography in Temecula is 51%!
