The Vineyards in Simi Valley: Pretty Inside and Out

The Vineyards in Simi Valley was a picturesque location for Katherine & Weston’s elegant wedding. The striking hot pink accents and Charmaine’s stunning flowers combined with the dramatic backdrop to create some pretty memorable images.

Katherine & Weston are a romantic, fun-loving couple. It was such a special moment when Katherine read her groom’s touching words as she was getting ready to see him for the first time that day.

What a fun, beautiful day for this special couple.

Placerita Nature Center Family Portrait Fun with the Mortensen Family

We were fortunate to photograph Morgan & Dan Mortensen’s wedding several years ago at Robinson Ranch Country Club- it was actually the VERY FIRST wedding at the venue.  We have stayed in touch with them over the years and have had the pleasure of photographing the children as they have grown up, along with the entire family’s portraits.  The kids have gotten to know us and just love hamming it up for the camera.  We always look forward to seeing this wonderful family and watching them grow.  Thanks for the memories!

Legendary Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles Sets the Stage for Jessica & Brandon’s Wedding As The Perfect Blend of Glamour, Romance & Tradition With Ceremony at Holy Family Church in Pasadena

It was a happy accident that Jessica & Brandon found us…they had visited a venue that referred us, and although they didn’t choose that venue for their wedding reception, once we met, they did choose us to capture their day.

Park Plaza Hotel-Wedding-Black & White

Jessica is one of the most organized brides we have ever met, her work for university fundraising and event planning (yes, this Trojan must admit she works for UCLA) really showed in her attention to detail.  The beautiful program you see here was not only made by hand by Jessica and her bridesmaids-they were done over the summer-well in advance of her January 25, 2014 wedding date.

Brandon is an Apple guy, currently working in our own Valencia Apple Store- we hope the irony of the timeline of human evolution shot of all the groomsmen in front of the church isn’t lost…the top of the evolutionary chain is the iPhone!  We just couldn’t resist.

Holy Family Church in Pasadena is just spectacular!

Jessica's personal touches were evident everywhere- don't miss the elegant table settings in the magnificent ballroom at the legendary Park Plaza Hotel, which by the way, is adjacent to MacArthur Park-where we actually got a shot with the downtown skyline and vibrant blue evening sky before the party began.  The architecture was amazing and we just could not be more thrilled with the results.Brandon is an Apple guy, currently working in our own Valencia Apple Store- we hope the irony of the timeline of human evolution shot of all the groomsmen in front of the church isn't lost...the top of the evolutionary chain is the iPhone!

The Bridal Party was so much fun to work with!

Rave Review: Jayme & James

Another rave review for R & R Creative Photography on Wedding Wire:

Now that our wedding is over, I wanted to follow up with my review for R & R Photography… they were just as fantastic for our wedding as they were for our engagement pictures.

They were so efficient and extremely professional.  They knew every photo to take and what shots would look good.  Even our wedding guests were making comments the whole night about how awesome they were! From capturing our first kiss, to catching everyone’s moves on the dance floor, Dave and Jody were dedicated to documenting every moment of our big day.

They made our big day stress free and were quite professional the whole time.  It was spectacular to have the ease of knowing they were doing a great job.  I would strongly recommend them to anyone!!

Thank you as always Dave and Jody for being a part of a huge milestone… your works of art are breathtaking!!

Missy & Greg’s Wedding at Valencia Country Club: Vintage Shabby Chic Lights up the Night

You would think that if you went to kiss a girl at the end of a first date, and completely missed her mouth and had your tongue land on her nose, you might give up and never see her again. Luckily, Greg was not ever giving up on Missy. Persistence and love paid off—the relationship blossomed, and their June wedding was the culmination of many years of perfect kisses, planning, and romance.

Hours and hours of meticulous care were taken to transform Valencia Country Club into a pink & white, vintage, shabby chic wonderland. Charmaine filled Missy’s vision with fabulous flowers, Rusty and A V Party Rentals provided all the rental items, Sharon Stanman of Painted Joy contributed hand-lettered signs, Missy’s own father actually created and manufactured the doors they entered through, and J & M Entertainment‘s Jorge Lopez was the MC to the partying and fun, which was nonstop and even included one of the Backstreet Boys (!) dancing with his new wife out on the dance floor. We felt fortunate to be there to capture it all—check out our smiling faces at the end!
