1. Starbucks Coffee. 2. Weddings! 3. Traveling to new and unexpected places (the more spontaneous the trip, the better!). 4. Really good stories. Could be in a book or in a movie, or even in a song. If the story has depth, is clever, and keeps us intrigued, we love it! 5. Making new friends. 6. Sleeping in, when we can. 7. The ‘WOW’ moment when we look at a picture we just took or an album we just created, and we actually wow ourselves because it’s just so awesome. And then the client sees it and is wowed by it, and we get a second dose of ‘WOW’, and its just one of the best feelings in the world! 8. Our cats and dogs. 9. Our families. 10. Each other.
We are Loren and Rachel Scott of Murrieta, California near Temecula Wine Country. Our focus is on modern wedding photojournalism and creative custom portrait photography, including boudoir and dramatic headshots. We love photographing weddings! We are available for events throughout the Temecula Valley and Southern California. We have the best clients! They allow us to express our creativity by inviting us to take part in some of the most profound and celebratory moments of their lives. In exchange, they enjoy a photography experience with personal attention, professionalism, reliable service, and beautiful upscale products in the form of custom-designed albums, fine art wall canvases, and archival-quality heirloom prints.
Loren is our principal photographer. He has a formal education in photography and actually photographed his first wedding way back in 1982 when he was just 19 — you do the math. For those who are interested in learning photography themselves, Loren also teaches photography at Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) at the Menifee campus.
Rachel is formally educated in graphic design and handles all of the post-editing of images as well as designing all custom albums for our clients. She also wears the hat of studio manager and occasionally second shoots alongside Loren at weddings. Rachel’s love is in creation of the wedding album, your wedding story and our ultimate end product and goal in photographing weddings in the way that we do.
We were married December 4th, 2009. By having recently experienced the whole (crazy!) wedding planning process from start to finish, we have an entirely new appreciation for wedding day photography, and are more dedicated than ever about giving our clients a “quick and painless” and most enjoyable photography experience possible.
