As wedding photographers, we get to work at a lot of beautiful venues, from private estates to gorgeous hotels to wonderful outdoor venues. One of our favorites is Los Willows Wedding Estates. Beautifully situated in a valley north of San Diego, it has so many great spots to do photos that it's almost overwhelming! Almost!
Los Willows is a very private venue, no strangers wandering around, wine glass in hand, as at may wineries, no onlookers as at many hotels. Easily accessed of the I-15 and with several hotels within easy distance, it's an ideal place to get married.
It makes our jobs easy when a bride isn't just beautiful, but enjoys being in front of a camera as much as she did. A pretty girl, beautiful dress, beautiful day, wonderful venue and easy posing go a long way to making beautifuly images.
Shot with a Canon 5D mkIII and 70-200 f2.8L IS lens, it shows the capability of the modern DSLR when paired with the right lens and in this case, flash. We used a little fill flash to balance the light, but allowed natural light to be the main source.
