Wedding: {cindy & Jeff}

Cindy & Jeff were married at the fabulous Grand Tradition in Fallbrook CA. The location is top notch and everything is in place to make this an extraordinary venue for weddings. I have to say, I absolutely love shooting weddings there. The staff is very professional and there was the sense they really love what they do there. During the ceremony Cindy & Jeff released butterflies which was very interesting and a challenge to photograph. Their ceremony started in the late afternoon and the reception went on late into the night. It was definitely one of my more memorable weddings indeed.


Cindy & Jeff wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other. Yet, they wanted something to remember the excitement and anticipation of the "moment" when Cindy walked down the aisle and Jeff saw her for the first time. Cindy had this neat idea to create this shot of the two of them behind the door. This turned out to be one of their favorite shots from the wedding.


I caught this moment of Cindy and her bridesmaids as they left the dressing room and headed outside for a pre-cermony portrait session.


One of the unique features at the Grand Tradition is the horse drawn carriage. Cindy rode around the lake and arrived at the ceremony. She stepped off the carriage and was really able to achieve that "fairy-tail" look to her grand entrance and walk down the aisle. We were able to utilize the carriage for some special moments following the ceremony. Here are a few shots


A gorgeous and dramatic shot of Cindy & Jeff as they made their entrance into the reception.


Amazing Cake display....


I created a series of shots like this using an off camera strobe fired with my Pocket Wizards and a slow shutter speed to burn in the ambient lights on the mansion. I asked Cindy & Jeff to remain perfectly still to get sharp crisp results.


A fabulous send off for what was an awesome ending to an amazing fun filled wedding. Thanks Cindy and Jeff for allowing me to be part of your special day! Love ya!!
