Timon loved this shot. I do too…so sweet, with the water feature and all. (Maybe it’s the kid in me…but now I can’t stop wondering… has anyone ever dropped their backpack in the water before? After all these years someone must have..!?)

The next 3 photos were the last 3 photos of the day and a bit of an experiment. I’m curious…out of pure preference, which one do you like best? Mona and Phil’s favorite was the first one… and also the last one. Mine was the 2nd one, for reasons of the graphic designer in me.

Liz Rice - I like the 2nd of the 3. The last one hurts my eyes, lol. And in the 1st one, my eyes are not immediately focusing on the couple, rather the background.

Liz Wang Photography via Facebook - Just posted! Have a chance at winning a free portrait session by telling us which photo you like most.

Camarillo Wedding Photographer | Spanish Hills Country Club Wedding | Paige and Jeremy

We had the privilege of photographing Paige and Jeremy’s wedding at the Spanish Hills Country Club back in January, which is located in Camarillo, Ca. Just days before the wedding, we were experiencing rain throughout the week, but as soon as it was showtime, the weather once again dried up and warmed up! We were so excited to blog and show them their wedding photos, first via their slideshow…

If you haven’t already checked out their slideshow, it’s worth it to watch that first!

I had a great time assisting Timon with this wedding, and loved getting to know Paige and Jeremy. This was the first time I teared up a little (but hiding it!) while photographing a wedding, as I heard testimonies about their lives from family during the ceremony toasts.

Here are some of our favorites from the day, more close-up.

One of my favorites…

I love this one in black and white from Timon’s camera.

As you can tell, I can’t get enough of these pictures of Paige.

These men were a little silly. And pretty-somewhat cooperative. They ended up making Jeremy do a split in mid-air which did not make for a flattering pose. So we’re glad we still have this one.

After a “first look”, where Paige and Jeremy had a moment together before we started portraits, we did some wedding-day portraits:

Their cake & mini desserts were from a Long Beach Dessert Studio- Sweet and Saucy Shop, who also did Miley Cyrus’s 18th bday cake. I snagged a look at the cake they did and it’s pretty cool with the sparklers. But…look at these neat carrot cake pops! I wanted to try one pretty bad.

Paige’s sweet mom walked out in the freezing night cold air, to send us home with a few of these delicious treats:

First dance- I never cease to be impressed by a couples’ ability to actually really dance for their wedding’s first dance song.

Camarillo Wedding | Paige and Jeremy’s Sneak Peek

2011 is shaping up to be an exciting year, with our calendars pretty much filled through June! In 2010, I got to concentrate on my passion of delivering our final vision to our clients through editing and blogging, as well as photograph some beautiful families. Timon has been able to concentrate on his passion, shooting weddings, and maximizing our client experience so that they feel comfortable and relaxed!

A few weeks ago, Paige and Jeremy had their beautiful January wedding at Spanish Hills Country Club. We have a ton of pictures from Paige and Jeremy’s wedding that we’re loving, but for now, here’s a little appetizer:


This peekaboo shot of course had to make it in to the sneak “peek”:

We’re excited to show you the rest soon…we loved their Camarillo venue, Spanish Hills Country Club, and the staff there. They were so organized, easy to work with, and super friendly.

March 31, 2011 - 1:08 pm

Clara Peterson - I am so sorry I couldn’t attend this wedding of my great niece and her new hubby. The pictures are amazing and will be wonderful memories to share for years to come. Good job and thank you for posting them!!
