A LITTLE WINE & CORNHOLE

Part one of Doug and Kendall’s engagement session was wine filled! I didn’t know too much about them prior to their shoot other than the fact that they had attended a wedding I second shot. My friend Alexa sent them my way because she was booked on their wedding date. I quickly learned these two love to end a day with a glass of wine and Doug grew up in Temecula, so it only made sense to meet up at a winery. Wilson Creek has a pretty strict closing time, which meant shooting a lot earlier than I normally would like to. We didn’t get much of that golden light, but thankfully we were able to find the little bit of shade.

I got to photograph one of my favorite families, the Holmes! It takes a lot to get this many people together and all in sync, but they did it and nailed their outfits! The thing they learned is to pick a color scheme, which allows everyone to wear the same color, but also mix and match patterns and shades. Enjoy some of our favorites!

The Huis: Terranea Resort Family Session

A TERRANEA FAMILY SESSION

The Hui family was so so sweet and total troopers for waking up to meet at 6AM! So dang early, but man that morning light is GOLD!! It was so dreamy! We wandered around a bit and were able to get some beautiful images with the morning light right behind them.

It was such a pleasure second shooting for Cassia. Cameron and Priscilla were one of the nicest couples ever. They're so sweet and quiet, but their love shines through it all. Cameron was raised by his grandfather, so as a surprise to his grandpa, he and his new bride took on his grandfather's last name, Maxson. Enjoy these special moments from their beautiful wedding day!
