Take a look at this gorgeous Classic Wedding at Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens, 220 Grand Tradition Way, Fallbrook, CA 92028.  Hopefully if you’re considering this picturesque location, our wedding photos will help you decide if it’s the right venue for you.  Our experience shooting at Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens is a great one.  Besides having  eighteen acres of beautiful gardens, a stunning lake and so many great photography spots, their staff is just amazing to work with.  This is a very popular wedding venue in San Diego and we can clearly see why it’s in such high demand.  If you’re considering this location for your wedding we advice to schedule a walk-through sooner than later. 

This spectacular day began by meeting the bride and bridesmaids at a beauty salon in San Diego.  We took some preparation photos as they got their hair and make up done.  Once we had enough photos we made our way to the venue to for more preparation photos and of course some establishing shots of the decor at the venue.  Shortly after the bride and her bridesmaids made their arrival.  Into their lovely bridal suite they went to get dressed for the ceremony.  The bridal suite at Grand Tradition Estates & Gardens has a gorgeous Victorian look to it, perfect for pictures.  Of course the bride especially requested to take some portraits by the window and we just love how they turned out.

Once the couple got fully dressed we escorted them for some first look photos by the stairway.  It’s always so sweet to see how the couple react on their first look.  Moments later it was time for the ceremony and a gorgeous one it was.  The bride looked breathtaking as she walked down the aisle, it almost seemed like she was glowing. Once the ceremony was over we took some portraits by the willow tree and lake as the background.  Then we made our way back to capture the exciting grand entrance.  The groom and his groomsmen entered doing an epic Labanese Zaffe (Zaffah) Wedding Grand Entrance.  Time just went by so fast and before you know it, this glorious day came to an end with a Sparkler Exit by the newly weds.

Check out this gorgeous Dukes Malibu Wedding. Hopefully if you’re thinking about having a beach wedding or maybe you’re considering this location, it will help you decide. Our experience shooting at Dukes Malibu is a great one. Besides having such a great location with ocean views and blue skies, their staff is just amazing to work with. This is a very popular wedding venue so we do recommend booking with Dukes Malibu at least a year in advance to make sure you get your special date.

This particular wedding day was a memorable one, there was a 65% probability of rain at the beginning of the week but luckily it turned out a gorgeous day with clouds that would come and go. It was every wedding photographer’s dream come true. We got to take photos that looked romantic with the clouds giving us just enough shade and then as the sun would shine in giving us a new look for the photos.
This wedding was fun to plan and due to the couple’s busy schedule we ended up handling most of the wedding planning. We took care of the styling, flower arrangements, centerpieces, signs, and Chuppah decor. As much as we love to be trusted to handle all the decor and styling, we can’t help but to feel a bit nervous when the couple gets to see everything for the first time. But this is what we were born to do. Seeing the Bride and Groom’s smiles as they see their wedding set up for the first time is a feeling we can’t explain.

For this wedding Josh Ponder took care of all the preparation photos as Alex Diaz handled the full Day-of-Coordination and Styling along with the fabulous Cateraoke crew. Once all the decor was ready, Alex Diaz and Josh Ponder got back on their roles of capturing photos from all angles for every key moment. We love how the couple joined traditions and created a wedding for all to enjoy. Right after toast our in house Cateraoke Wedding DJ played an Irish Dance and then the very popular Jewish Hora Dance that got everyone on the dance floor. Later in the evening our photo booth was a total hit giving the guest another fun activity to do.

Fun Irvine Wedding Photo Ideas 

For the soon to be bride and groom planning their wedding in the near future that does not necessary like the more traditional posed wedding photography, these Real Wedding Photos by Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Alex Diaz and Josh Ponder are perfect for you! This wedding was shot in Irvine, California and as you can see the weather was just perfect as it normally is here in Southern California. The bride and groom were so happy to get married and wanted to capture their wedding day on a journalistic way, not so much posing photos.  They did want some group photos but they just did not want them to look like all the other serious shots, they wanted everyone’s personality to pop out and this is exactly what we delivered!  

The wedding photography began at the bride’s home in Irvine. She had two of her bridesmaids help her get ready for the big day and though we did not want to get in her way while she got ready, we certainly made ourselves available for the perfect moment. Once everyone was ready we got to capture some fun natural photos of her just having some fun with her girls before the ceremony. We always recommend doing Prep Photos because it is probably the only time the photographer has some one on one time with the bride and groom.


Paper Parasols were available for the guests to use for this outdoor wedding and of course they also came in handy when the time came to do some fun group photos. The goal was to allow everyone’s personally to come out naturally and stay away from the posed photos that the couple did not care for. The final product was exactly what the bride and groom wanted, beautiful, fun wedding photos shot in a journalistic way!
