This week we had the pleasure of photographing Samantha and Freddie’s beautiful Golf Course Wedding at Eagle Glen Golf Course in Corona, CA. Before we went to the ceremony site we started with some last details and getting ready photos. We always tell our brides and grooms to allow us some time to capture all the small and large details they put so much time and effort into.
On the bride’s side we had her gorgeous wedding dress, her jewelry, and a whole lot of excitement to cover.
On the groom’s side it was a very fun time as well and he had his own special details. For example, Freddie had some very unique and special cuff links that he was going to wear throughout the day.
In case you don’t know what a first look is; essentially what we do is place the groom in a certain location. We look for a beautiful background while having the prettiest, best lighting on them as well. Eagle Glen Golf Course in Corona gives us exactly what we need for our weddings. Once our groom is in position, our beautiful bride Samantha walked up to Freddie, tapped him on the shoulder. At which point Freddie turned around and nearly lost it. He was so overwhelmed with happiness and joy seeing his bride in her wedding dress. It was such a beautiful and special moment to both of them. It also allowed us to capture more wedding party and bride and groom photos prior to their ceremony.
Of course we could only photograph for so long. Eventually, guests started to show up and we had to hide our bride and groom and get ready for their ceremony. The ceremony area was absolutely perfect. The scenery was gorgeous, the background was so amazing and once we had all their guests seated, it was time to get the ceremony going. Tears were flowing, emotions were high, and everyone looked extremely happy to see Samantha being walked down the aisle by her father.
Bride and Groom Portraits
After the ceremony, we took our bride and groom for additional portraits. Usually after the ceremony we like to do more photos since lighting is typically nicer at this time than earlier in the day. Of course we do family photos after the ceremony too, since that’s when we know all family we need will also be there. During this portion, our second photographers are taking photos of details and guests. We try to be as efficient as possible so our couples get the best coverage possible. Afterwards, it was just about time to head over to the Eagle Glen Golf Course Weddings reception.
