I can't say enough about Dan and Tara. Obviously, they're a gorgeous couple (Ken and Barbie come to mind when I look at their photos). But more than that, they are kind, funny and genuine. Tara contacted me through my website about shooting her intimate backyard wedding and we scheduled our first meeting at the mall. We chatted on the patio of Starbucks and before we could decide on wedding announcements, we had already bonded over a 20 minute conversation about teeth and dental work. Sometimes it's the little things that connect two people :) It turns out we had more in common, like the vision for her wedding portraits; modern and romantic. I couldn't really fail with such beautiful people to work with. And they made me feel so welcomed. I felt like a part of the family at their ceremony and I thank them for that.
I hope Dan and Tara are having a fabulous time on their honeymoon. I am so jealous of you two! Bora Bora, really? Ugh. Someday!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the formal portraits at Temecula Creek Inn and the ceremony at their amazing Temecula home. Enjoy!
