THE MIN FAMILY


I met the Min family out at one of my favorite venues to shoot at (also where Ryan and I were married!) The Humphrey's Estate. The landscaping and unique architecture was the perfect backdrop for this families' simple maternity session. 

Congratulations!! We can't wait to meet your baby girl soon!

We met the Hecht Family out in Old Town Temecula a few weekends ago and had a blast with these guys! This was my first time doing a morning session in Old Town and I forgot how crazy this little town can be. The Farmers Market was in full swing with vendors and booths set up everywhere, meanwhile an outdoor event was happening at the Theater (usually my go to spot!)

I always like to meet my clients at the Old Town Theater because it's a landmark everyone knows and is easy to find. Because of the event going on at the theater my favorite spots were not available. I think most photographers would be freaking out on the inside if they were in my shoes but I actually like when this happens. It forces me to get really creative and use new areas I may not have used otherwise.

Lisa mentioned that she wanted an urban/industrial look to her photos so after we took one set of photos on the side of the theater I went around the back to find an open area with no vendors...and I think I found the jackpot!

Thank you Lisa, Sean, Landon and Brooklyn for an awesome shoot, you guys rocked it! Can't wait to photograph your family again sometime soon!

 

XO,

Miranda + Taylor said "I do!" during an intimate ceremony at Hearts Home Farms in Hemet, Ca. We absolutely loved the pops of mint and coral and the bridesmaids dresses were so unique and gorgeous!

We caught a glimpse of the bride right before she walked down the aisle with her brother Forrest. I just love Miranda's face in these photos, you can see the pure joy and excitement. And of course, the grooms face as he sees his bride for the first time. Ugh...makes us tear up every. single. time.

I think this is one of the BEST first kisses we've seen. The Bride + Groom's oldest son Logan wanted to make sure he was right up there mom and dad for their first kiss. So sweet.

The wedding party piled into a stretch Cadillac limo and headed to the reception at RJ's Sizzling Steer where they enjoyed a mellow BBQ dinner and cake!

A Sweet Downtown Murrieta Engagement Session | Murrieta Wedding Photography | Stevie Dee Photography

I first met Rocky last year when I came to his auto shop in downtown Murrieta to take photos for a magazine I work for. He kept my information and after he proposed to his high school sweetheart Sarah, he gave me a call. We met a few months ago for their consultation I instantly fell in love with their story.

You see, this isn't your typical "high school sweetheart" story. Rocky and Sarah dated for 4 years when eventually (and unfortunately), it came to an end. Fast forward fifteen years or so and Rocky just couldn't stop thinking about Sarah. He finally decided to get in touch with "the one that got away" and the rest is history.

We had an absolute blast with you both and cannot wait for your wedding in October! Santa Ynez here we come!!

August 8, 2015

Pam + Kevin said "I Do" in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Ellis Ranch in Loveland, CO. We absolutely adored every element of their day but one of our favorites was the bridal bouquets, made by Pam's Aunt. The different hues of blues with pops of pink, complete with hand dyed orchids and peacock feathers took this bridal bouquet to a whole different level of awesome.

Pam and Kevin's ceremony was filled with so much love and laughter, especially when Kevin was concentrating too hard on putting the ring on Pam's finger and forgot to repeat his vows (haha!). They shard stories on how they met, where they went for their first date, the first kiss and lastly the proposal. Close friends and family shared special readings during the ceremony before the new Mr. & Mrs. sealed the deal with a kiss! 

Once the marriage certificates were signed we started the bridal party and family portraits. Ellis Ranch is located at the base of a rocky cliff which made the most perfect backdrop for the Pam and Kevin's portraits! Pam was even down for a little hike to get the best view of the cliff...seriously, a photographers dream!

The reception space was absolutely gorgeous! The multi colored and market lights completely transformed the space. We loved all the little details they included, especially the table honoring their loved ones who couldn't be with them on their special day.

Congratulations Pam + Kevin and thank you for sharing your special day with us. You are such a beautiful couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness with lots of beer!

{Styled} 1st Birthday Pie Smash | Award Winning Myrtle Berry Pie | Myrtle Creek Bontanical Gardens Fallbrook, Ca | Stevie Dee Photography Fallbrook, Ca Photographer


HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHYANNE


We met the Dittenber Family back in December of last year when Christina saw us out in the park during our Holiday MIni Sessions. She ran up to us and asked for a business card and scheduled her family photos in the new year when Shyanne was only 6 months old. We had a blast working with them so naturally we were so excited when they called and scheduled a photo session for Shyanne's 1st Birthday! It's amazing how much these kids grow in such a short amount of time. Shyanne is such a gorgeous little girl, the camera just loves those blue eyes of hers!

Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens is located in Fallbrook, Ca and is such a neat little place to visit on the weekends! We thought this would be the perfect setting for Shyanne's photo session. Rickety Swank Vintage Rentals came in and set up two different styled scenes for us, first this sweet little teepee. And seriously, that birthday hat though. Love!

Shyanne's birthday theme is "Country Fair" so instead of smashing a traditional birthday cake, we bought an award winning Myrtle Berry Pie from the Bloom Cafe and let her rip into it!

And of course the pie stand from Rickety Swank Vintage Rentals was just too darn cute!

Happy 1st Birthday Shyanne!

Lifestlye Newborn Session | The Rabinovich Family | Stevie Dee Photography


OLIVIA & EVELYN


We get so excited when families want to do an in home lifestyle newborn session. Don't get us wrong, we love the cute little baskets and baby bonnets, but we also love to document the family as if we are just a fly on the wall. This is why we mix our newborn sessions! We bring backdrops, baskets and props for the cute posed photos but we also incorporate a lifestyle style.

We have been photographing this sweet family since their oldest daughter, Olivia's, newborn session a few years ago, and were thrilled to hear about their new addition, Miss Evelyn.

Congratulations on your beautiful (& growing) family!

THE TAYLOR FAMILY


We met the Taylor Family back In November when we took their Holiday Photos and instantly fell in love with their son Nathan. He has the most vibrant blue eyes and a smile that can light up a room! They are such a sweet (and growing) family and we were thrilled when they called us up a few months ago and told us they were expecting baby #2!

We took them out to one of our favorite rustic venues in town, Two Sister's Farms, which is a real working farm in town.

I had a blast with you guys and can't wait to see you in September to photograph the new baby!

Justine + Allan | Beautiful Backyard Wedding | Temecula Valley Wine Country Wedding | Temecula Wedding Photographer | Stevie Dee Photography


Mr. + Mrs. Montgomery

May 16, 2015

Private Residence

Temecula, Ca


Justine + Allan were married on a beautiful day in May at their home in Temecula, Ca. A rainstorm rolled in the week leading up to their wedding but the morning of their big day the clouds parted ways, the rain let up and it was gorgeous! Justine rode her horse up to the ceremony site and her and Allan wrote their own vows (our fav!). It was super sweet and simple, and that's just the way we like it!

The new Mr. + Mrs. entered the reception dancing to "Red Solo Cup". It was so much fun to see a refreshing spin on the bridal party entrance and definitely a great way to get the party started! Shortly after, the couple began their first dance and then came the speeches. Dad's speech gets us every time! Justine's dad was so sweet and said one of the most heartfelt speeches we've ever heard, bring on the water works!

One of our favorite parts about a wedding day is the romantic portrait session. We love to whisk the bride and groom off for their portraits, it's a great time to take a breather and enjoy an intimate moment as Husband and Wife alone. Justine + Allan are such a perfect fit and their love and happiness is infectious, which made it so easy to capture their love on camera.

Congratulations Justine + Allan and thank you for letting us share your special day! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

XO,
