San Juan Capistrano Wedding | Intimate Orange County Backyard Wedding | California Wedding Photographer

September 3, 2019

Rachel & Sandro’s intimate Italian themed backyard wedding in San Juan Capistrano was one of my favorite weddings that I have photographed to this day. These two beautiful humans put so much work into their day. They had so many unique details that was so well thought out. I would step away and think wait, am I actually in Italy? They had so many beautiful details that were all Italian themed such as their table settings, the gelato at their reception (YUM), and soooooo much more. Their love for one another was so visible throughout their day and I just loved being apart of their day with them. The day was filled with so much love, so much family, and amazing food! Rachel and Sandro did a choreographed first dance and it was so romantic and had the crowd so incredible impressed. Their family speeches had myself and my second shooter crying happy tears. All around this wedding was just beautiful! Congrats to the happy couple!

“Nicole KILLED it for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She’ll find a way to pull out the amazing shots from both you and your significant other, and meanwhile manage to not miss capturing any special moments from your big day.

Ultimately, hiring a photographer is about many different things (style, price, etc.) but to me, more than anything, it’s about trust. Trust that they’ll do their job flawlessly and you’ll have a set of photos to look back on and perfectly recapture everything about your wedding. Thankfully, I can say Nicole delivered on that trust, and so it’s easy for me to confidently recommend her to anyone else… 5/5, A+, hire her as she’s worth every penny!” – Rachel & Sandro
