Romance at Twilight

When my girlfriend Sherry asked if I would shoot her line of Vintage hand dyed slips I instantly knew I wanted to share this opportunity with fellow photogs in my area and turn it into a mock wedding shooting event!
I have not yet had the pleasure of shooting an outdoor wedding in the Temecula wine country, so this was my opportunity to recreate one! ( still dying to do one, if you know anyone)! lol....there is something about an outdoor wedding that I just totally am in love with. Shooting into the sun, getting that warm glow in the photos, how a gentle breeze blows through the brides hair,...I could go on and on!
The shoot took place on the gorgeous property of another girlfriend Linda Carpenter.
Linda has a beautiful barn on her property in Temecula and opens it up once a month for a spectacular vintage sale of wares! Linda generously offered us to use many of her pieces in our shoot. It wouldn't have been as amazingly styled without you Linda! Please check out her blog for sale dates and sneak peeks of what will be offered!
Here are some of the pretty details......

Ive had a ton of emails from photogs asking if I'm planning another group shoot soon, and I don't have any plans to do another until after the first of the yr! I'm thrilled you all had so much fun and want to get together again for some more shooting Vintage style!


  1. Oh T, love love love these shots! You are such a pro! Amanda is a doll and you captured her perfectly...so proud of you girl! Way to go! Now YOU my dear are a PHOTOGRAPHER...not just a girl with a camera.

  2. Thanks Tracy for putting this shoot together! You put a lot of thought into this and it was so much fun. The location was gorgeous as were the models and all the details, I look forward to other shoots with you in the IE! :)
