Chantale + Anthony : Murrieta Wedding
On Saturday, December 3rd, I was close to home in Murrieta at the World Harvest Church to photograph our final wedding of the year, the beautiful winter wedding of Chantale Stamp and Anthony Ley! I had photographed Anthony’s High School senior portraits a couple of years ago. So, when it was time to plan his wedding, his mother contacted us right away. (Thank you, Elizabeth!)
Chantale and Anthony had a daytime wedding with their ceremony beneath a sea of white paper lanterns. The air was crisp and cool with just a slight breeze — a nice relief from the wind storm we had experienced just a day earlier. Since their wedding ceremony was to short, and followed only by a simple dessert reception, Chantale and Anthony were able to allocate an entire hour after the reception just for their romantic portraits. Usually, we are only allocated 10 to 15 minutes for the couple’s romantic portraits (after the family pictures are taken between the ceremony and reception). Having an entire hour dedicated to portraits of the couple was an awesome experience, and as you’ll see below, the result is a huge variety of beautiful pictures for Chantale and Anthony to choose from!
Annie, my second-shooter, and I had a blast with the new Mr. and Mrs. Ley, who were pretty much up for doing anything we wanted to do and let our creative juices flow. They also brought along an empty picture frame and had some ideas of their own for that, and Anthony had one special shot request for himself, as you’ll see below — one guess which shot that was!
