I had the honor of photographing the first event ever at South Coast's new barrel room. It was a very private 'Cocktail Hour' with Jim Carter (SC's owner) and his close friends. It was so new that they were literally putting in the finishing touches just hours before the party.
Following was South Coast's lavish WineMaker's Dinner. The night's special guest was a celebrity chef from Hollywood. I wish I knew his name but I don't have it. If you have never been part of a WineMaker's dinner then you're missing out. It is one of life's great meals!
This is my 11-11-11 wedding. I think every wedding venue across the country was booked on this particular Friday. It's one of those dates that gets snatched up two years in advance. I think it's VERY ironic that 7-7-7, 8-8-8, 9-9-9, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 all fell on weekends. I just checked for 12-12-12 of next year and, unfortunately, it falls on a Wednesday. Of course, these dates only come around once a century.
Cool date or not, I think Jenna and Brian's wedding was perfect.
This was the bride's idea... she brought the sparklers and wanted to capture the word 'Love.' I've seen it before but this is my first attempt at it. Next time I'd make sure to put the bride and groom in the middle. I have other ideas so if you are one of my clients and you'd like to experiment with light then let me know.
Julie and I enjoyed a perfect evening at Leonesse's Winemaker's Dinner on Friday. Food was prepared by Mike Cragg of Temecula Catering. What's cool is that Mike used to work at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel... the same hotel that I worked at when I was putting myself through college.
This is only the second wedding we have photographed in Palm Springs. Which is unfortunate since we live only 45 minutes from the area.
The Riviera Resort was recently remodeled and holy crap did they do a good job. It is a photographer's dream venue with lots of cool corners throughout the property. I wish I had an extrat 2 hours to get all the shots I wanted.
Jayme was amazingly photogenic and had total confidence in me (and in herself). I can't tell you how important this is if you want to get the best photos possible.
