Temecula Wedding Photography at Wilson Creek Winery

Getting to capture Ray and Orio’s wedding was very special. There wedding day started at Wilson Creek Winery in the bridal suite with hair and makeup. Holly did a fantastic job on the hair and makeup.  I got to take a photojournalist approach during part of the day, which is always fun for me because I live for the natural process of shooting those candid real life emotions of love and excitement!

They say its always sunny in Temecula, well then they are wrong! While I was photographing the groom’s pictures we began seeing some dark clouds roll in. The father of the bride began storm chasing on his smart phone and trying to predict if the ceremony should be held outside or inside. Like I've said in the past, every wedding has at least one event that is unplanned, Orio’s unplanned event just happened to be rain. So the ceremony was moved inside and everything went on.

The wedding facilities at Wilson Creek are top-notch. I was really impressed with all of the open space they’ve got. It was very comfortable in the ballroom and photographing in their lighting was great. I think Orio had some say in the purple lighting, and I really like how colorful it made some of the photos.

As a passionate Temecula Wedding Photographer, every opportunity to capture someone's BIG day is special to me. One of my favorite moments at this wedding was when the groom brought Grandma out on the dance floor in her wheelchair. Her face lit up like a Christmas tree! And they started boogying to the music!

Oh yeah, and the Bride and Grooms first dance was the BEST I have ever seen, seriously. Well they are both professional dancers, so I thought they may be planning something special, and they didn’t disappoint. It was awesome, hopefully some of the photos I captured kind of tell the story. Overall it was a great wedding at Wilson Creek and I hope to have the opportunity to shoot there again, especially since it is like 8 minutes from my house!

Joyful Carter Bug

I am loving this whole being a dad thing! I feel like the luckiest guy in the world right now because I am so blessed to have such an amazing family!!!

My son Carter is almost 4 months old now. He loves taking baths, swinging in his jumper, and just being silly with his mom and dad! He might stink and barf every now and again but when he looks me in the eyes and then lights up the room with a smile and giggle it makes everything worth it!

My wife is also amazing and I thank God for her. She not only takes care of our little Carter but also me! Smile Yeah, Im not sure what I would do with out her. Im not one to brag but I really scored!!! Praise God!


”The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.” (Psalms 116:5 NIV)

Engagement Photography in Valley Center, Ca

What a fun idea Sarah had to have her engagement pictures taken at Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center, Ca.  The hay, old barn, and antique wood textures really gave her the country style engagement photos that she was going for.

We toured all over the farm looking for fun and creative photography opportunity's. One of my favorite’s was underneath the huge oak tree at the front of Bates. That tree has to be a hundred years old.

Fall is such a gorgeous time of year in Southern California too, the colors and warm crisp air really made it a comfortable experience. I love being outside and getting to photograph great people in God’s beautiful creation. Congrats to Sarah and Aaron as they get ready to tie the know in 2011!
