It’s been a very busy wedding season. I’ve enjoyed the couples I’ve met and photographed this year. Really neat and special people like Dillon and Brittney. Super kind, easy going and genuine.  Dillon and Brittney’s wedding was celebrated at The Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club in Redondo Beach. I have photographed many weddings there and at the bottom of this post I’ll leave some links if you want to view some of the wedding blog posts for those weddings. Regardless Dillon and Brittney’s wedding was on a beautiful and warm day. Spectacular wedding weather! I photographed this wedding by myself. I arrived early to shoot the details. There are two really great spots I love to photograph the wedding dress in the lobby. The only issue is that both require a good sized latter. I asked the front desk if one could be brought in. They got on their walkie talkies and in a 15 minutes I had what I needed. Thank you Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club staff!

The Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club has a really beautiful lobby for taking wedding photographs. The only issue is that there is a lot of furniture that has to be moved around and positioned to take advantage of the features of the room as well as the lighting, particularly when photographing groups. The groomsmen and I were kept very busy moving things to get the shots I wanted. I’m so often moving furniture in hotel rooms, lobbies or wherever we are, I jokingly tell my clients that I am 3/4 wedding photographer and 1/4 furniture mover.  Whatever it takes to get the job done and get the needed photographs for my clients, that’s what I’ll gladly do!

Wonderful candid moments of the couple’s first dance, father-daughter dance and mother – son dance! Always some of my favorite moments of the day because the emotion seems to be so raw and full of life!

Lighting is always the key to wedding photography. However, the desired lighting does not always occur at the most practical times for any given wedding day.  For example, at Dillon and Brittney’s wedding the two different points in the evening that the evening lighting was optimal for wedding photos were both during the reception. Fortunately, for the first opportunity for night shots (sunset) we had coordinated the reception timeline so the guests would be eating dinner and we’d have a chance to slip outside for sunset photographs.  The second opportunity (when it was completely dark out) would be a time during the reception when there was open dancing, etc.  In both cases Dillon and Brittney had the opportunity to either stay inside and enjoy their reception or dash outside, get some photographs and quickly return to their guests and enjoy their reception. They chose to the later and I’m so glad they did!

True love waits! As the scripture reads, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Dillon and Brittney, as I photographed your beautiful wedding it was so clear that you both have patiently waited for the true love that God has given you for each other. You are now being rewarded for patient waiting. I’m so happy for you both and thank you for inviting me to be part of your wedding day. Thank you!

Kindly,

Trent

It was a spectacular day to be providing wedding photography for Matthew and Cheryl at The Apple Creek Ranch in Santa Rita Hills. I photographed the wedding by myself.  It was an exciting day filled with much celebration and joy.  There are few places as beautiful and perfect for weddings as the Solvang  –  Santa Ynez area.  The lovely couple got ready at the famed Hotel Corque in Solvang.  The wedding ceremony itself was performed at the Santa Ynez Mission also known as the Mission Santa Ines.  The the rich reception celebration took place at the above mentioned Apple Creek Ranch in Santa Rita Hills.  Matt and Cheryl were such a great couple and very photogenic as well!  I hope they, as well as you, will enjoy the samples below!

Absolutely stunning, unique and amazing flowers were provided by Laura Cogan with Passion Flowers Design out of Buellton.  I work with Laura many times each year and not only are her floral designs stunning, but she is a very kind and sweet person!

So cute. I’ve never had a flower girls cover her eyes while she walked down the aisle, until now!  I’m still not sure why a little girl would cover her eyes for this moment, but it sure was cute.

The Apple Creek Ranch is a really neat wedding venue, with all kinds of photo opportunities. I thought this wall covered with ivy growth was super cool.  If you are looking for a wedding venue that can accommodate a pretty large number, give them a look.  The owners are really nice too!

Matt and Cheryl it was so fun to photograph your wedding day.  Many fond memories were to be had by all and it was a ton of fun just putting this blog wedding post together remembering all the little moments that I enjoyed capturing. Congrats to you and your great families and the love you have found for each other. May the love and peace of God accompany you and your marriage all your days, as you walk in both His Truth and Love!  Many blessings,

Congratulations to Travis and Heather on their sensational wedding at the Santa Ynez Inn and wedding reception at Lincourt Vineyards in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley!  What a beautiful and fun day it was to photograph all the important and exciting moments of their wedding!  I started with the detail and getting ready shots at the Santa Ynez Inn where all the guys and gals were getting ready for the big day!

The lighting and timing were just right, so I asked the dj if I could use the mic and ask the audience to rise to look at my camera as I raised it with my handy dandy 12 foot pole!  I think it’s a great shot to get when possible. I’m sure Travis and Heather will enjoy zooming in  at 400% to enjoy all their guests expressions.

I love it when kids can’t help but use their tongue to help them dance with their feet.  I took about 10 shots of this little girl dancing over the course of a minute and in every single one her tongue was helping her dance. Too cute!

 

48- Lincourt Vineyards Santa Ynez -48

 

Oh yes! There is always one in every crowd!  A person determined to get back at the wedding photographer by taking a picture of the wedding photographer!  I wonder how it turned out. I hope “she made me look good!”  Please send the photo and maybe I’ll post it!

 

49- Lincourt Vineyards Santa Ynez -49

 

This photo is fitting. The men have “smoke beards” the lady does not.  She just has a little “smoke eye”.  Note: The surgeon general advises that both smoking AND hookah may be dangerous for your health!

This year’s award for “Most Bubbly Mother of the Groom” will likely go to Travis’ mother shown here with wonderful outburst of joy!  Very fun to be around parents like her!

Sam and Tova’s wedding celebration took place at the famed Dana Powers House in Nipomo, California.  Dana Powers House is such a unique rustic barn setting and Sam and Tova couldn’t have been a better couple to serve! The weather was spectacular and family and friends along with the couple were excited at the arrival of this long planned day!  I must say, I was excited as well. Sam and Tova had picked me as their wedding photographer from seeing me in action at a previous wedding and seeing the wedding photographs from a very dear past couple, Mike and Jillian. You can see their blog from their wedding at The Cliff’s Resort in Pismo Beach here. So great to see everyone again. It was a pleasure to see Sam and Tova again too. We had a great engagement session a good number of months prior. I put together a little mini slide show from their engagement session just for fun.

If you are looking for a great rustic barn wedding venue on the Central Coast, Dana Power’s House in Nipomo is a great venue. As you can see from Tova and Mike’s decorations, the place can really be adorned quite nicely. Sam and Tova and their families really pulled out all stops and went for it. Awesome job.

Yep, those are real tears. That’s real love for the whole world to see! Real men do cry. Sam you are a real man in the love you have for Tova!  The love of God will melt any open heart!  I admit that as I photographed Sam and Tova’s wedding I had plenty of tears flowing as well as their ceremony was so beautiful in their proclamation of their love for each other, based in the sacrificial love of Jesus that overflows from Him, into their lives and to each other.  It’s so beautiful to see two people who live their faith, joined in marriage.  God was glorified in this day!

Ok, this wedding was a bit “off the hook” with stunningly cute kids running around everywhere.  I’m sure this photo will make this adorable boy’s high school graduation or future wedding slide show to try to embarrass him a little. But I’m sure his mom will cherish such a photo for the rest of her life. Is this kid adorable or what!

I photographed this wedding by myself. There are advantages and disadvantages to photographing a wedding with or with out a second photographer. Occasionally I do have a second photographer. However, I’ve become quite accustomed and efficient at photographing weddings by myself. For me, the absence of a second photographer is one less thing to concern myself with and I can concentrate on my craft and artistry.  I also feel, the only real way to make sure something is done properly is to do it myself, rather than wondering if the other photographer got it.  After all, if a couple contracts me for their wedding, it’s my photography they want.
