rancho bernardo inn WeddingI was ready for the worst.. outdoor wedding and backyard reception and it’s starting to rain right as we head out for bridals on the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn  – with no sign of letting up. It’s a San Diego brides worst nightmare! Emily made the most of it, swapping the schedule, and doing a first look in the rain that had the whole bridal part teared up.  Then off to the ceremony at Maderas Golf Club which made for an incredible backdrop with the dark clouds.  They even drove us around in a golf cart to find the perfect location for coupes shots.  The rain held back for a perfect evening at Christian’s family home.  These two are salt of the earth.

Remember this spectacularly AWESOME couple, really though, how could you not!?!?  Without question Janica and John brought their A GAME in the beauty and style department for their spring vineyard wedding at South Coast Winery in Temecula, California, and they are a RIDICULOUSLY GOOD TIME to boot.  To say that getting to know these two has been RAD would be a major understatement.  We don’t believe that two people could possibly make LOVE look as stylish as these two do.  Congratulations Janica and John!

ONE + ONE  = 4?  When  Ashley, Jeff, Esther and Jason approached us to shoot their engagement session, we were stoked.  When they asked that we shoot it on the same day at the same time, we accepted the challenge.  Oh and did we mention Jeff and Jason are IDENTICAL twins.  Double E-sessions were harder than I thought… double the ideas and half the time!   It was super windy the day of the shoot and our first location ended up being a “bust” so with props in tow (picture 4 beach cruisers strapped to a mini van driving at warp speed down the freeway) we all caravanned over to the Irvine Fields, it couldn’t have been a more AWESOME “plan B”.  We swapped every 10 minutes between couples (thank you to Sarah Rico who was a blessing to have help me on the shoot).  It feels like two different shoots although we wanted to get the best shots for both… Regardless of the challenge it really was a blast. I’m still laughing about this skipping double mint shot. Only wish we had more time to do the other 5 ideas we had!AJEJ414-Edit When we meet with couples, we always ask them to tell us a little bit about their “story”.  We have such RAD clients that it’s always super awesome to hear how they met and ultimately brought them to an epic Burnt Exposure shoot.

In Ashley’s words (and we tend to agree), as identical twins it was only fitting that Jeff and Jason would each find true love just two months apart. Esther and Ashley were already friends when Esther and Jason began dating so when Ashley started dating Jeff, it gave new meaning to the word double dates and before long they became the self proclaimed “Quad.”

Jeff and Jason are both musicians, so when it came time to propose they knew they not only had to do it at the same time but it had to be nothing short of amazing (as if a twin proposal wasn’t epic enough…clearly they are over achievers)!   So how does one…err we mean TWO go about pulling off the proposal of the century?  Why during a performance in front of 3,000 young single adults at a church conference in Arizona State University’s Gammage Auditorium OFCOURSE!  They were slotted to play on Saturday night after Mitt and Ann Romney would address the attendees, and would be followed by performances from Brooke White, of American Idol Fame, and Youtube star Alex Boye.  Talk about PRESSURE!  Needless to say, they pulled it off, even with Ashley running things behind the scenes!  You can check out their RAD proposal that was posted on KSL News in Salt Lake City, UT here  or on Jeff and Jason’s youtube channel

We had such an great time shooting these FANTASTIC FOUR skipping, biking, bubble blowing and even frog kissing!

Jeff and Ashley…

Meet Janica and John.  They are getting married and well, we love them.  Maybe not as much as they love each other, but it’s a pretty close race.  These two met in Utah where Janica was working at a tanning salon.  Hey, a lady’s got to do what a lady’s got to do to get some sun!  John fancies himself as somewhat of a “smooth operator” so when he went to get his “sun on” he flashed his pearly whites and boyish smile (as seen below) thinking small talk would do the trick.  Janica, being the polite lady she is, obliged and engaged but John wasn’t fooling anyone least of all his lovely muse.  He knew he was going to have to bring out the big guns if was going to leave an impression in hopes to take their tanning bed small talk to the next level.  One day after tanning and usual game of “how you doin’s”, Slick Rick err we mean John, left only to return about 30 mins later to look for his phone that he, A-HHHEMM “left”.  Clearly it was an attempt to spend quality time with Janica, after all, nothing sparks the “spark” like being on your hands and knees and rummaging through drawers looking around for a cell phone right?  Finally Janica offered to call his cell phone to hear it ring.  Alas, there was no ring because it ended up being in his car the whole time, and THERE ladies and gentlemen is the BIG GUNS to John’s master plan.  Long story short, he got the number and the girl.  Good on ya’ John…Good on ya!    

We all met up at one of our favorite spots to shoot, the Irvine Fields at Quail Creek Park.  The light and views here are EPIC and these two are amazingly fun!  Now on with images!JJ014-Edit-bw JJ041 JJ053Janica has some of the most piercing blue eyes we have ever seen.  Our camera’s obviously began an instant love affair.
JJ058JJ064 JJ084We were super stoked when they brought their two gorgeous pups out for a few shots.  Seriously, these dogs couldn’t be cooler and they totally hammed it up for the cameras.
JJ097 JJ102 JJ110 JJ115 JJ127After the more casual portion of the session, they wanted to spice things up a bit…and SPICE they did.  Taco Bell’s FIRE sauce ain’t got nothing on these two!

The original idea was to use only the white and blue balloons, but it was a bit windy that day so setting a world record in finishing a Rubik’s Cube would have been easier that untangling the strings so we just left it.  What a beautiful mistake it turned out to be, we absolutely LOVED the playfulness the pop of red brought.
JJ212 JJ222-Edit “ummm excuse me, I seemed to have lost my phone…would you mind helping me look for it?”JJ235“WHY YES…YES I CAN!”JJ240 JJ247 JJ255-Edit This must be the “Smooth Operator” look that John won Janica over with ;) JJ265-EditOr maybe it was this one…
JJ272 For serious though, could these two be ANY CUTER?JJ295 Despite the winter chill in the air, these two stuck in out in the name art  and stayed a bit longer so we could get some night shots against the dark sky and tall grass…and we CANNOT thank them enough.  Thanks to Sarah Rico for helping out and for bringing this SICK vintage television set too, we only wish we had more time to use it! JJ310 JJ300-Edit-2-stay-tunedThank you Janica and John for bringing the SUPER FUN to your engagement session.  We have such a great time trekking around the fields with chairs, balloons and even a television.  We cannot wait to capture your incredible wedding at the South Coast Winery!

We love us some Shane and Kissa!  They are fun, full of energy  and with Kissa’s infectious smile, Shane never stood a chance.  They both love volleyball so naturally it’s where they first met.   As opponents, their competitive sides got the better of them at this first chance meeting and it looked like this love was doomed to the penalty box…oh wait that’s hockey.   Volleyball, however, turned out to be their language of love and so began their story.  Kissa and Shane got married at the incredibly gorgeous Los Angeles Temple and we couldn’t be MORE THRILLED to share their images with you.333 KSSlideshow046 395 KSSlideshow059-EditBehold the infectious smile…
KSSlideshow047-EditThis could very well be the coolest wedding party we have ever worked with.  We fell instantly in love with some of the ladies incredible tattoo artwork!
KSSlideshow003 339 KSSlideshow010 032 KSSlideshow000 KSSlideshow035 349 If you don’t know what these are, then we just can’t talk to you…just kidding…but C’MON with the  T.M.N.T. throw back.  One word…RADKSSlideshow034 KSSlideshow019-Edit KSSlideshow021 066 263 Look carefully at these next two photo’s…can you spot the difference?  We will give you minute…289 KSSlideshow023 Give up???  Well… After 5 attempts at a cool jump shot with the groomsmen, the huge piece of granite broke in two.  Despite nailing the shot, as you can see, there is no definition for how HORRIBLE we felt.  I mean there really is NO WAY to feel except horrible when you break a picturesque stone that had been there since the 70′s.  Don’t worry we told some Los Angeles Temple workers immediately, I think we may have even cried a bit as we walked away, heads hanging in shame. KSSlideshow017 280We all looked a little something like this after “the jump”…
025 077 075 KSSlideshow006 081 KSSlideshow008 KSSlideshow009 This image speaks VOLUMES of the pure unadulterated JOY these two bring to each other.085 065 KSSlideshow011 089 088 105 110 116 093 299 KSSlideshow027 KSSlideshow024 249 377 368 365 358 331 329Remember that little “broken stone” moment… If there is a funny part to it, it’s that Shanes’ nickname is the Marvel Superhero THOR. Hmmm, could it have been his sheer brut superhero strength that broke it and not us after all…ummm yeah, we are going to go with that. KSSlideshow030 310 KSSlideshow038Let us take another moment to reflect on how RAD this party is!
325 252 KSSlideshow029 KSSlideshow013 The sunlight was just too perfect that day not to soak up every single second.  This is what happens when you combine a love beyond measure, two incredibly gorgeous humans and golden light so rich it would make a Swiss bank blush…seriously get a tissue!KSSlideshow058-Edit 379 413 411 426 450 432 425 448 463 456After our time at the Los Angeles Temple, we all headed over to Corona Del Mar to celebrate at the Oasis Community Center.421 KSSlideshow053We never tire of that look a new bride gives her man as she realizes he is hers and she is his forever…

774 We seriously died over how incredibly beautiful these rose gold rings are.  So classic and timeless it made us want to make some popcorn and watch old Audrey Hepburn movies.849 707 699 697 734 738 719 THOR’S hammer…maybe that should be a “stone” and not a football…790Could there be a cooler way to throw the garter?  WE.THINK.NOT.
830 837You know it’s a party when IRON MAN decides to show up in his helicopter.870 801 875It was such a wonderful day.  Kissa and Shane, you take our breath away.  Thank you for inviting BURNT EXPOSURE to be such an intimate part of your story and with that, let us leave you with this…
