Wedding at the Estate on 2nd
Temecula Wedding Photographers take on the Estate on 2nd!!
Ok, Just going to come out and say it right now before this one gets going… I have had this one in the cue for a while. I dunno what my problem is when it comes to dropping kick ass weddings up on the blog!? I mean thats like the easiest part, right!? Photograph a kick ass party, edit the amazing moments and make em look great, post online and admire!! Cause otherwise they live in this in between place, never to be seen. I guess for me there is definitely a certain pressure in posting up weddings cause Im not usually one to be like “Ok, great wedding, awesome people, check it” . Its all to normal and although when Im not in the writing mood I have taken the easy way out and let the pics speak for themselves. But thats not my style. at all. and to do that here would be a sin.
Soooooo if you are here… and looking at this right now…. I want to apologize for the excessive amount of pics that made the cut. Its an overwhelmingly ridiculous amount, well over 200.. but I couldn’t do it any other way cause to be honest, shit got WILD! Smiling the whole time I’m scrolling through pics of the day trying to decide what to keep. Im a wedding photographer that takes a lot of pics through out the day in order to land the moments in between moments. Yet redundancy kills me… In the end I try n keep it concise annnnnd this was my best attempt. lol
We photographed this amazing wedding at the estate on 2nd st. located in beautiful Santa Ana. That was a joke, I dont think anyone ever refers to Santa Ana as beautiful… HOWEVER, this place [estate on 2nd] , is stunning with tons of character and happens to play the setting to one of my favorite weddings ever. Starting with one of the best first looks ever. Im pretty much forced into creating a write up on WHY TO DO A FIRST LOOK based upon this one alone. For all my future couples on the fence, Im just going to grab this sequence and make em watch. Its beautiful. Tears of joy all around! annnnnnd thats before it all even got going. Pure glory! I’ve got ear to ear grins for days, confetti bombs, money tossed across the dance floor… hell, people were thrown across the dance floor! shirts came off, ties went on the heads and they went out with sparks. If you make it all the way through you will see it all. If you dont? Your loss. lol.
And so here I am… burning the midnight oil, warm glow of my computer just sizzling into my retinas… I should blink more often but its’ 2:42 on a sunday… errr wait, monday morning and writing this with booze in my veins [and spell check working over time] makes me want to resort to using the loads of “bad words” in the best way possible when recalling the day we spent with Sally and Tam… yeah, it was F*#king crazzzzy! I love it. I live for it. MORE PLEASE! cause if I could shoot this one all over again, I totally would <3
OK, so I usually dont break these things up in the middle with text… but ya know what!? THIS is what a first look is all about. I find myself pitching [traditional] couples from time to time on why a first look is the way to go… I think Im just going to send em here from now on. These are some of my favorite parts of a wedding. A private moment , just the two of them and the emotions… damn I just love it when my guys can be in the moment and show emotions. After couples see eachother and are all sorts of giddy, we take that energy into a little shoot together and it makes for truly awesome moments… the kind of stuff that cant be repeated.
ALRIGHT!! Enough with the pleasantries. I told you shit was gonna get wild… and this was when the party got going. Is that a bottle of booze in her hand and dollar bills being thrown??? You bet your a$$ it is. Confetti bombs, dollar bills raining down and shirts coming off in the next segment.
GAhhhhhh!! you made it to the end!?! I dont believe!! lol .
Sally & Tam! Thanks for being awesome and entrusting in us to capture the big day!! annnnnd huge CONGRATS on the little one on the way! We look forward to seeing the Vo family grow :) You guys are fabulous and we love ya!
