A few months ago, R&R Photography had the pleasure of meeting Fred and Sulema who were referred from past clients of ours. They remembered the professionalism and the great photos Ron Verba took at Fred's best man's wedding, Mark. With no doubt Fred knew who he wanted for his engagement and wedding photographers. So Ron sat down with the couple at a local coffee shop and collaborated on their engagement shoot and tentatively planning with their wedding. Many ideas come into play from the exact shooting location, day and time and the mood of the final result. At the end, R&R Photography created a beautiful outdoor engagement shoot in Carmel Valley which Fred and Sulema's family and friends enjoyed deeply.
At the day of the wedding, both Fred and Sulema were very nervous and excited. Family and friends traveled far and wide to share their very special day. Madonna Del Sasso church was decorated with flowers and had a solemn tone once you entered the church. As the wedding ceremony started, a sense of magic seemed to unfold. Church music filled the air and smiles upon smiles from guest and the wedding entourage as they entered the church. R&R Photography captured every moment in a calm and serene matter as there are limitation to shooting a church wedding in many cases. As experienced wedding photographers, R&R Photography knows how to get the right church wedding photographs at the right time. No flash, no close ups of the bride and groom at the alter, no problem! We still captured it all.
At the end of the wedding ceremony, that's when this young bride and groom got to really show off their excitement. They really wanted to party so after all the formal and traditional family wedding photographs in the church we headed out to a secluded part of a local park with beautiful willow trees and take amazing photos of the bride and groom along with their wedding entourage. The wedding group photos were fun and energetic so it was a bit challenging changing the tone of the moment, but we had to get some photos of the bride and groom alone. So we then asked the group to "take a walk", politely of course. The result was a moment of sigh and relief from Fred and Sulema and really soak in the freshness of being married.
Below are those remarkable wedding photographs that the bride and groom can enjoy for their lifetime. It's astonishing to see these two show their emotions and happiness in front of the camera as I know it may be difficult for some to just act as honest and natural as can be. Their reception was just as beautiful with more food and drink than one can imagine.
Thank you Fred and Sulema and we wish you all the best with your marriage and to beautiful life that is ahead of you.
