Mount Palomar Winery Wedding–Victoria & Phi!2:29 PM
Wine countries are among my favorite locations to shoot. Naturally rustic open-air landscapes transition to glowing, beautifully moonlit, summer receptions.
Today I’m excited; excited to finally share Victoria and Phi’s wedding at Mount Palomar Winery. Fun, free, and full of whimsy, the day unfolded perfectly as we explored the winery space to knock out set after set of creative pictures. One notable series of photos came right after sunset; we ventured out into the vineyards and discovered a small hill that overlooked the Temecula Valley. With the sun well below horizon, we were graced with one of the most magenta saturated skies I’ve ever photographed. Too good not to get. Coulda stayed out there forever.
Victoria and Phi, thanks for having me out there. Enjoy the photos! =)
Victoria & Phi’s Review!
John Yao is more than just a guy who takes your photos. He is an artist who can work in any situation. Working with John, his philosophy seemed to be that the happier we were, the more fun we were having, the better the pictures will look - and the pictures look great! During your most stressful, chaotic times, John is a calming presence, reliable, fun, and professional. A few hours with John and he becomes one of your buddies. So many of our guests have complimented John's personable qualities and photos. He knows how to achieve the "wow" effect, which is pretty much everyone's reaction when seeing his photos. He is great at navigating through different personalities and difficult situations in order to make you feel comfortable and happy with your special day. When you go with Simply Two, you're going to have a good time, you're going to look good doing it, and when it's all said and done you'll have your most cherished memories captured by its full beauty
Thank you to all my stellar vendors!
