On Saturday, June 30th, I was back Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula Wine Country to photograph the wedding of Jill Kovalcin and John Petrizzi. When I photographed them previously on March 31st at Laguna Beach for their Engagement Portraits, I immediately got a sense of John’s natural sense of humor and of Jill’s appreciation for it, as well as their natural chemistry together. I recall making a comment to them on that day that I couldn’t wait for their wedding, because I new it would be a fun one. And, I was right!
As expected for a Summer wedding in Southern California, the weather on the day of the wedding was hot, hot, hot! Shade is a rare commodity at Wiens. So, once the ceremony was done, I brought everyone out of the heat and under the covered patio alongside the reception area for their formal family portraits.

On Sunday, March 31st, we were in Laguna Beach at one of my favorite spots just behind the Montage Resort, to photograph engagement portraits for Jill Kovalcin and John Petrizzi. Their wedding will be held June 30th of this year at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula.
As with many of my wedding clients, Jill and John told me that they are not particularly fond of posing for pictures. Fortunately for them, that fits my preferred style of primarily candid shooting just fine. And, fortunately for me, Jill and John were unbelievably photogenic and relaxed and completely into each other during the whole shoot. John has a tremendous sense of humor and was having a great time getting Jill to crack up the whole time.
Here are just some of our personal favorites from their session:
