Southern California Wedding Photographer/ Husband/ Father/ Vegetarian/ Beer Drinker

Temecula wedding photographer that some people would describe as a mix between Channing Tatum and a honey badger, pound-for-pound one of the most ferocious animals on the planet. I enjoy writing sweet poetic love songs on my banjo for my lady, walking my dog Sinatra, sculpting my guns at the gymnasium (I'm not sure if you heard me counting, but I did over 1,000) and of course photographing weddings throughout Temecula, San Diego and Orange County. I’m truly blessed to do what I love and only hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. CHEERS! - Ryan

Engagement In Temecula, California

 

Mike and Crystal are a couple kids in love who will be getting married later this year. The couple planned on having their wedding ceremony last year but Mike had been busy touring as a backup dancer for Jennifer Lopez. That is correct, Mike is a professional dancer and he takes his occupation very serious. In fact, during the Temecula engagement session he talked about how he has a strict gluten-free diet and a rigorous training schedule that has him in his personal dance studio working on moves 12 hours per day. When I asked him what he does during his dance training, Mike said he, “basically puts on a N’Sync album and the moves just come to him like a shooting star in a Wintery night sky”. What makes this couple so unique is that Crystal hates J-Lo, but this is not that surprising considering most people hate their significant others’ boss. Especially, when you hear the real stories like how J-Lo makes Mike get her a diet Coke with exactly 3 cubes of ice during lunch or how she makes Mike dress up like Marc Anthony just so she can yell at him. However, Crystal understood Mike’s deep passion for dance and supported him and even though it delayed marriage plans things have finally come to fruition. Mike and Crystal will be getting married later this year at Mission Inn located in Riverside, California and below are the photos of their engagement session that were captured in Temecula, California. Enjoy!

Wedding Photos At Hidden Oaks In Ramona, California With Pieter & Rachel

Ramona Wedding: Hidden Oaks

 

What can I possibly say about this awesome September wedding in Southern California? Rachel looked amazing, Pieter was dressed like a true gent and the venue was absolutely stunning in its simplicity. I actually had never photographed a wedding at Hidden Oaks: Private Weddings & Events or even heard of the place until Rachel gave me all the details on our first meeting. This is probably because this gem of a venue is deep in Ramona, California, the venue does not even have a website and of course the property owner/wedding coordinator Deb only takes about 20 weddings per year. Hidden Oaks was a great change of pace from the Temecula wedding venues I am used to photographing but in all honesty a venue can only provide so much because at the end of the day weddings are about people not places, and I must say Pieter and Rachel are two amazing people. The intimate wedding ceremony was officiated by Rachel’s father, guests came from places all over the world like South Africa and the good times penetrated the evening air like the smoke from the fire pit (Seriously venues that offer fire pits and couples who provide free cigars to smoke near those fire pits rock). Below are the wedding photos I captured of Pieter & Rachel’s wedding day. Enjoy!

Courtney + Patrick In Escondido, California.

Escondido, California

 

Courtney has been a good friend to my wife for more years than I even know so it was quite the honor when she asked me if I would take photographs of her and her husband Patrick. Although my wife and I live in Temecula we made the short drive to Escondido and met Patrick and Courtney at their home so they could show us their Christmas tree, then we could hammer out the photos and finally get some post-photography margaritas for Taco Tuesday. Now I’m sure you are probably thinking it seems a little strange that I would include seeing a Christmas tree in the chain of events, well let me tell you it is because Courtney is a Christmas junkie. I am talking about going so nuts with decorations on her house that Clark Griswald himself would shake his head and say, “Damn!?” Let’s just say that the Christmas tree was so large it required a special motor vehicle for transportation and those little tree lots don’t even carry Douglas Firs this large. I mean it would not surprise me if a bear was actually still living inside the tree and brought some serious holiday fear one random night. So yeah, here are the photos we took at a little place called Rod Mcleod Park in Escondido, and THANK YOU again Patrick and Courtney for the food and drinks afterward. Cheers!
