Heres’s Sneak Peak at Scott & Sommers Haute Wedding album. This is one of our Signature Crystal Cover series albums custom designed for Scott and Sommer.  Sommer decided on a romantic spanish feel of El Adode Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano. The day and the setting was gorgeous. Being a fall wedding the skys were the perfect shade of blue with just the right amount of clouds.

Sommer had her bridal prep at her aunt Christie’s amazing private residence in the Villa Park Area of Orange Ca.  We hope you enjoy this album as much as we did.       Wedding Photography | Orange County Wedding Photographers

Zak & Melissa came to me from one of my favorite previous clients, Steven & Danielle Sanchez. Zak and his father are avid golfers. So when Zak & I were talking about their engagement photography session he mentioned he wanted to do it at the Hacienda Golf Course where Zak’s dad has been a member for years. The cool thing was, that they also brought to the engagement session their little boy Gavin. Gavin was all over the place trying to play golf and having a great time. After the Hacienda Golf Course we drove around the La Habra Heights and ran into an abandoned building/property. We decided the heck with it. Let’s do this. It kind of felt like we were on the property of the movie the “Last House on the Left”. Kinda erie! We opened up the old Garage shed to find this old 70′s model Mercury Car and began to photograph on and around it. Melissa was a trooper, down for anything! Zak & I kept our heads on a swivel in case some psycho came out of the woodwork!. Over all, fun times! Zak & Melissa will be having thier wedding at Rancho Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano. Be sure to let the 2nd to the last image load its pretty sweet! Don’t forget to Leave Zak and Melissa some Blog Love By Leaving them a comment.

Recently I ran into an article written by the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers or ISPWP.

What do Wedding Photographers Really Do?

It comes up a lot. Usually when I’m standing in the buffet line for dinner, or when there’s a slow time during the day when I’m not taking pictures.

“So you’re the photographer?”

“Yessir, I am, and I absolutely love it.”

“Well I don’t doubt it. You’re doing a great job out there. It must be great to work only one day a week!”

I hear similar stories from other wedding photographers. There seems to be a lot of misconceptions regarding what wedding photographers actually do all week. It’s perfectly understandable, after all, the only time most people see us working is at the wedding. So I thought it would be interesting to survey wedding photographers and discover what they really do besides take pictures every weekend. Hopefully it will help clear up some misconceptions and give some insight into what goes on behind the scenes after we leave the reception.

About 50 wedding photographers responded so it’s a fairly good sample size, and I’d be surprised if a larger response would yield a much different result.

The Perception

How some people think wedding photographers spend their time (and how some photographers WISHED they could spend their time):

The Reality

How wedding photographers REALLY spend their time:

We clearly spend more time in front of our computers than behind our cameras, which is a sign of these digital times.

…And people think all we do is push a button…
