Weddings

Welcome to Part Two of the Swanson Wedding! Shannon and Billy’s wedding was the epitome of elegance and fun. After finishing their Coors Lights at a quaint cottage B&B, the couple moved the party to The Wedgwood, a Spanish style clubhouse at the San Clemente Municipal Golf Course. We captured some wonderful moments as Billy and Shannon exchanged vows under an idyllic open-air gazebo. The golf course provided a perfectly lush, green backdrop. By the time they were done, there was not a dry eye to be found. And then it was time to celebrate.  The theme was Jack Daniels after all! By the time Shannon and Billy joined the reception, the dance floor was already packed.  It was clear everyone was  having the time of their lives. And yes, the whiskey flowed! We feel so lucky to have been a part of the Swanson’s incredibly unique day.  Everyone was so warm and helpful, we couldn’t help wondering if we were somewhere in Read More

Weddings

After meeting Shannon for the first time, we knew we were up for a grand ‘ole time at their wedding. She actually forewarned us about their upcoming Jack Daniels theme, but assured us it would be done in a classy way. Honestly, we just can’t say enough good things about these two. They’ve made working with them such a joy & a pleasure – so a big THANK YOU in advance! We shot all the prep content at this lush but quaint venue adorned with all kinds of details. From its garden mazes to its perfectly manicured lawns and robust succulents throughout the property, this is a true gem. It was the perfect setting for the Billy & Shannon, who are a fun,  laid-back couple that like to kick back and enjoy life.  They decided to get ready at The Cottage before the ceremony at the Wedgewood San Clemente because of its beauty and uniqueness. They also didn’t hold back their casual, upbeat natures and Read More

Engagements

One thing we really enjoy is taking engagement photos of couples in beautiful surroundings throughout the Southland and since there are so many to chose from, it’s always a photographer’s dream. We especially enjoyed accompanying Billy and Shannon to Santiago Parks Regional Park in Orange County for these fun shots. Lying peacefully in east Orange alongside the Santiago Creek, the 1,269-acre Santiago Oaks Regional park is a nature lover’s paradise. This secluded refuge offers hikers, bikers and equestrians the natural charm of mountain vistas, an orange grove, a meandering creek and a mature forest of many different species of trees. Wildlife abounds and a series of interconnecting trails leads through shady groves and to a lookout that features an awe-inspiring view of Orange and the surrounding foothills. Billy and Shannon were at ease when we took these photos of them having a good time whether it was showing off some “Mr. and Mrs.” beverage coozies, sharing an embrace, walking the trails Read More
