This week we had the pleasure of photographing Samantha and Freddie’s decadent wedding in Corona, CA at the Eagle Glen Golf Course. Just before attending the ceremony site for the blissfully, wedded couple, our team at TNK photos decided to pursue accordingly with a few exciting,” Getting Ready and A First Look,” photos to start beforehand.
By always communicating with our brides and grooms to allow some time in order to capture the small detailed moments that capture special and engaging photo opportunities, our team took the task at hand and put effort into creating a special gift of a photo session along the way.
On the bride’s side we had her lovely wedding dress, elegant jewelry, and a handful of excitement to cover for her photo session getting ready for her big day.
For the groom’s shoot, our team at TNK Photos incorporated captured moments with the special cuff links set he had with him for the,” Big Day,” as well as a few unique shots of what was to be worn throughout the day getting ready for the walk down the aisle.
Our team started off with what we call, ”A First Look,” which essentially is the placement of the groom in a specific location shoot.
By spotting a exquisite background for the photo-op, we also keep an eye out on the best lighting possible within the location. Eagle Glen Gold Course was the location that was best suited for our client’s photo wants and needs! Located within the city of Corona, our team positioned the groom and picturesque bride, Freddie and Samantha, to take a natural first look at each other. To do this, we tapped and surprised the groom whilst the bride walked towards him, and snapped the natural reaction of him in surprise! Happiness and joy at seeing the bride in her beautiful wedding dress was the special moment for the,” First look,” we entangled for the couple. What a serene moment for both of them being captured at astonishment!
Furthermore, it also allowed our team at TNK Photos to capture more of the wedding party (the bride, groom, maids of honors, and groomsmen, etc.) to take more photo-ops prior to their ceremony within the same beautiful, background!
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.
Wedding Reception at Eagle Glen Golf Course
Here’s a wonderful thing; after all the portraits are taken care of, every combination necessary is covered: it’s time to celebrate! And Samantha and Freddie came ready to celebrate! Their reception was so fun! Everyone was ready to let loose and celebrate with their friends and families!
