Pretty in Red

25 September 2017



As a bride-to-be, it's natural to feel overwhelmed by the countless decisions that need to be made for your big day. From choosing the perfect dress to selecting a venue that captures your vision, every detail matters. But, there's one aspect that can make or break your wedding day, and that's the photography. After all, your wedding photos will serve as cherished memories that you'll look back on for years to come.


That's why I was so excited to shoot this beautiful wedding in Valencia, CA. Not only was the weather perfect, but the love between the bride and groom was palpable, making my job as a photographer a true joy.


The Venue


One of the most important decisions a bride and groom make is choosing the perfect venue for their big day. And this wedding was no exception. The couple selected a stunning outdoor location in Valencia, CA, surrounded by towering trees and lush greenery.


As I arrived at the venue, I was struck by the natural beauty of the surroundings. The sun was shining, casting a soft glow over the entire area. I could hear birds singing in the distance, and a gentle breeze carried the scent of blooming flowers.


The ceremony took place beneath a beautiful archway adorned with delicate flowers in shades of blush and cream. As the bride and groom exchanged their vows, the natural beauty of the venue served as the perfect backdrop.


The Little Details


One thing I particularly loved about this wedding was the attention to detail. From the carefully selected flowers to the personalized wedding favors, every aspect of the day was thoughtfully planned.


The bride's dress was a stunning lace creation with a delicate train that trailed behind her as she walked. Her hair was styled in loose curls that framed her face, and she carried a bouquet of white roses and greenery that perfectly complemented the natural surroundings.

The groom and his groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos with sleek black shoes. They looked sharp and sophisticated, the perfect complement to the beauty of the bride and the natural surroundings.


As the reception got underway, the guests were treated to a stunning display of lights that illuminated the entire area. The tables were adorned with elegant centerpieces that incorporated the same flowers used in the ceremony archway, creating a cohesive and beautiful look throughout the entire day.


The Photography


Of course, no wedding is complete without beautiful photography to capture the memories of the day. As a photographer, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to capture the love and beauty of this wedding.


Throughout the day, I worked to capture candid moments between the bride and groom, as well as their family and friends. From the joyous first kiss to the emotional speeches given by loved ones, every moment was carefully documented.


But, one of my favorite moments of the day was during the golden hour, just before sunset. The bride and groom stole away for a few moments alone, and I was able to capture some truly stunning photos of them together. The golden light cast a warm glow over the entire scene, creating a truly magical moment that will be cherished for years to come.




Overall, this beautiful wedding in Valencia, CA was a true joy to shoot. From the stunning natural surroundings to the carefully selected details, every aspect of the day was thoughtfully planned and executed.


As a bride-to-be, it's important to remember that your wedding day is a reflection of your love and your unique vision. By selecting the perfect venue, choosing thoughtful details, and working with a skilled photographer, your wedding day can be a magical and unforgettable experience.
