Family Photography Session at the UCR Gardens

I love getting to go to new places and capture photos of cute toddlers! So this day was a good day! We went to the University of California Riverside Botanical Gardens for some family photography! It was my first time their and I really enjoyed it. My wife and I got their early to walk around and then we stayed late to hang out at the turtle pond!

The photo session went great and Cambria was all smiles. And her smile is so contagious, seriously look at the cute photos below of her laughing and try not to smile… It just cant be done! :) She loves when mom and dad toss her into the air, as you can see!

The location is perfect for families that live in that Corona and Riverside area and don’t want to drive all the way to Temecula for a family photography session with Anibaldi Studio. Overall it was a great family photography session and I cant wait to go back to the gardens at UCR.

Beach Engagement Photography Shoot in Oceanside, Ca

This beach engagement photography session in San Diego was a lot of fun. Kurra and Rich are a fun-loving couple with huge hearts. It wasn’t hard to capture the obvious love that they have for each other!

Their main request I got was for some good "black and white" engagement photos. So as the session progressed, I kept that in mind. I capture all photographs in color digitally. However, since I process them on the computer I am able to convert them later into black and white. In fact, I have found that this gives me the most control, because in Adobe Lightroom I can control the level of each color channel, thereby allowing me to easily make tonal adjustments to specific areas of the image.

It was a fun time at the Oceanside Pier. At one point I decided to capture some photos of them just walking along the beach, just some simple candid shots of them being themselves. After about 5 or so shots, I think Rich and I realized at the same time that he was holding Kurra's purse! He's a nice guy, and its just second nature to help Kurra in anyway he can. But as you can imagine, the photos might look sorta funny with a dude walking down the beach with a purse! Guys I think we are all guilty of this at some point, I know I am!!! ;)

Engagement Photography at the Temecula Duck Pond

What a fun easy-going couple, Marcela and Mason are absolutely perfect for each other! I cant put my finger on it but they just match… like laughter and a smile. I captured their engagement photos here in Temecula, first at the Temecula Duck Pond Park and the rest at the South Coast Winery. Hanging out and getting to know them was a lot of fun, I love making new friends! :)

They are getting married this month and I am honored to get to also capture their wedding photographs. So you will see more photos of these two soon. The venue they chose is the cat’s pajamas in the eyes of a Temecula Wedding Photographer like myself. The lush landscaping, beautiful waterfalls, and convenient bridal suites make the Grand Tradition one of my top-top favs!

Family Photography in Temecula, Ca

While photographing this family session at the Temecula duck pond, the family dog decided to lift his leg on the toddler’s jeans. It was sad at first and then a little funny, but hey what’s a little pee between best friends? The tough little guy shrugged it off and the family session went on!

It was a cloudy day, so the light was soft and perfect for family portraits in temecula. We hung out on the grass for a while and I even climbed a tree to get a better angle. Whatever it takes for the best photo, its totally worth it in my book! Then we chased ducks around the Temecula Duck Pond and then finally we got to bust out the Tricycle for one last ride!!! Overall, it was great getting to hangout with such great parents, a very cute kid, and my camera… good times!
