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.

Pam + Kevin Wayman

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!

GEORGE + IVANA + ALEX + COSTA


Earlier this week we met this adorable family at Owl Creek Farms and had an absolute blast! Our session was full of running, swinging, riding bikes, investigating bugs and basically anything that could help keep our little man Costa occupied. He did so well and did a fantastic job of keeping us all on our toes!

We absolutely love our vendors and love a good ol' fashioned styled scene. Nancy and Kelly from Touched by Time Vintage Rentals go above and beyond every time for our clients and we absolutely loved the pieces they brought for us!

Thank you Ivana + George for choosing us to capture your family photos, we can't wait to work with you again!

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!

temeculanewbornphotographer-6When we arrived at the McCarthy's new home we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of natural light filtering through their windows, truly a photographers dream! We set up a small work space in their living room and nursery and captured some of the sweetest images of this new family.

 Complete with pink striped walls, white distressed furniture and incredible detail, this Alice in Wonderland nursery by far is one of the best I've ever seen! We may or may not be just a little bit jealous...

temeculanewbornphotographer-4temeculanewbornphotographer-5temeculanewbornphotographer-7temeculanewbornphotographer-2temeculanewbornphotographer-8temeculanewbornphotographer-9Isla was such a sweet girl and definitely has some of her own personality already. She preferred to stretch her arms and legs out of the wraps and the sound of mom washing dishes in the kitchen sink over my acoustic lullaby soundtrack. The "kitchen sink" white noise was definitely a first for me!

Richard and Jessica, thank you for letting me into your home, your family and your hearts! It truly is a blessing to capture these precious moments in time for you to enjoy forever. Wishing you all the best in your new journey together as a family and am looking forward to working with you again in the future!

With Love,

Shooting My Passion | Amanda- Studio 31 Dance | Temecula, Ca

I think most of you know by now my passion for photography, but what most don't know is my passion for dance! I started dancing as a Tiny Tot a local dance studio at the young age of 2 years old. Growing up I was involved in many other sports including T ball, soccer, golf and beauty pageants but nothing ever compared to the adrenaline rush of performing on stage. I no longer compete or perform on stage but dance is still a big part of my life. These days I am thrilled to hold title of "Miss Stevie"- a teacher at Studio 31 Dance in Murrieta, Ca. This is where I met this talented young lady, Amanda. She is a student and an assistant teacher for the Tiny Tot classes.

We went to Old Town Temecula and had so much fun!  Here are just some of our favorites from her session!

Boomer Class of 2015 | Murrieta Senior Photography | Outdoor Senior Photographer | Stevie Dee Photography

We had a blast with Boomer and his mom during his Senior session a few weekends ago, which he rocked by the way! They live right next to this awesome park so we decided to shoot his session there. It was pretty cool (probably my new fave)  plus I had never been there before and I'm always looking for new places to shoot! Here are just a FEW of our favorites from his session...

Baby Finley | 6 Month Portrait | Glen Arbor Park Murrieta, Ca | Murrieta Family Photographer | Stevie Dee Photography

We met Finley back in November during our Styled Holiday Mini Sessions and I can't believe he is already 6 months old! Time sure does fly! He has the cutest cheeks and the best facial expressions (especially when dad fake sneezes...that really gets him going!). Here are some of our favorites from their session last weekend in the park. SDP_2404SDP_2490SDP_2389SDP_2554SDP_2530-2

And there it is my friends...the teething stage! Finley was such a trooper and made some pretty awesome facial expressions (the kind he probably won't have in 6 more months).  This is my second time photographing Finley and I look forward to the next session with this handsome dude.
