We love creating beautiful light from darkness. There is something to be said about shooting in the evening, especially around twilight. Not only does Rob get to play around with flash gadgetry, but our clients love it because it's different. We love the drama and the contrast- but most importantly, the playfulness and interaction we see from our clients is a different quality than when we shoot during the day. You just can't help but feel a little more intimate and romantic in the dark. We have done many night portraits for our clients, but I'd like to dedicate this post to Carrie and Mark who are getting married later on this year in Newport Beach. We had such a stellar beach session with them. It was so much fun that we did a little session in Downtown Laguna after hours!
This weekend Rob and I attended an open house for one of the OC's newest wedding venues: The Villa San Juan Capistrano. For all you OC brides and grooms who dream of celebrating the sacrament of Marriage at the Mission San Juan Capistrano, then The Villa San Juan Capistrano is the place for you. The Villa is literally across the street from the mission.
The Villa which was built in 1920 has a rustic and very romantic feel. It has many fun little locations for great wedding photo ops. We probably could have posted tons more photos, but here's a few to share.
