Temecula Creek Inn Wedding

We are so thrilled for our feature in Pacific Weddings Magazine!  This incredibly stylish 1920’s Hollywood Vintage inspired Orcutt Ranch Wedding was so much fun to photograph!  Dax & Sarah are professional lindy hop swing dancers who have travelled the world teaching, performing, and competing.   So to say that it is actually their lifestyle to be vintage is a huge understatement.  Their wedding showcased lots of vintage DIY details contributed with love by many of their friends and family.  The wedding party also happened to be comprised of many of the best swing, tango, salsa, tap, and burlesque dancers and musicians in the world.  The highlight of the evening was when their friends put on an amazing Cabaret show for Dax & Sarah and all the guests.


“Jen and Shane are wonderful to work with and they are both remarkably talented!!  We really didn’t know where to begin with our engagement photos.  Jen and Shane patiently guided us through every step of the process, from location selection to styling and of course posing for the camera.  They really wanted to get to know us as a couple and make sure that the mood of the shoot and specifically the location fit our style.  We are so happy that they recommended Leo Carillo Ranch!  They nailed it with this rustic, picturesque location that we fell in love with right away.  We started off a bit shy at the beginning of the shoot, but Jen is so warm and fun to be around that you can’t help but feel at ease with her!!  She kept us laughing and smiling throughout the session, which helped our photos come out that much more authentic.  She also recommended specific poses and movements throughout,  which helped us to be less awkward than we would have been otherwise. :-)  We left the session feeling pretty confident that we were going to love our photos, but when we received the link to the edited files we were positively blown away.  The editing was phenomenal and the photos felt very genuine, despite our nerves in the beginning.  We are hugely thankful to Jen and Shane for bringing out and capturing our love and happiness during this amazing time in our lives!!  They have given us the gift of extraordinary photos and memories that we will cherish for years to come.  We highly recommend Aqua Photo to anyone and everyone and we can’t wait to work with them on our wedding day!!!

Writing an update to share that our wedding photos are amazing thanks to AcquaPhoto!!!  It’s so much fun recapping and re-living the memories from our big day with these images.  Jen and Shane did a phenomenal job of capturing all of the details, intimate moments, and emotions of our wedding just beautifully – all while seamlessly interacting and blending in with our guests.  They are true artists with incredible talent and they also know how to make the process fun and easy.  I received endless compliments on these two from my friends and family- everybody thought they were the nicest, most professional wedding photographers they’d ever worked with…and the compliments on our photos keep rolling in as we continue to share them with our loved ones.  The portraits, the candid shots, it’s all amazing.  I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with AcquaPhoto and how pleased we are with our photos.  Thank you, Jen and Shane!!
