Palm Springs Engagement Photos – Amanda & Ziyi

You never know when love will come, but when it does there is no mistaking it!  That’s how it was with these two! Amanda and Ziyi had the most adorable chemistry together, they fit like hand in glove. We met them a several years back at their cousin’s wedding, fast forward to last year and there we were again capturing the moments at another cousins Wedding! Love it in the air and we are so thankful they thought of us to be part of their wedding journey! Amanda is creative and fun, stunning and playful. We had such a great time capturing the essence of who she is, we are just in love with some of these images. Ziyi is quiet and kind and charming and crazy in love with Amanda! We LOVE that!

They chose downtown Palm Springs as the back drop for their romance photos. Wanting to incorporate some fun and art and romance! We think you will agree these are some fun images, romantic, timeless and whimsical!

Their spring wedding is going to be in Palm Springs as well. To keep with the modern and artistic style Amanda loves, they are getting ready at a Boutique hotel called The Wesley.  We look forward to capturing more fun images! We are sure this post might be a record of images it was so hard to select just a few. We started with their love for games and even learned about a few ourselves. Games can be a romantic way to spend an evening together! We then wandered on through some streets in Palm Springs, CA playfully capturing some of the architecture and vibe of the city!

Amanda & Ziyi loved the windmills in Palm Springs too!  It reminds many of our town and it’s always a fun place to play footsies in the sand too!

 

We think you would enjoy some of these previews from their engagement photo shoot!

There are so many images we love but this one below is just gorgeous and natural of Amanda!

Ziyi had to have his own moments too! We love these stair shots of him!

The boys went off to take some photos so Amanda and me had fun in these fabulous yellow flowers! I couldn’t just pick one favorite! We loved them all!!! (And this is only a few!)

Okay…… this one say’s MODEL all over it!!! Those eyes!

ADORABLE!!!

Cards in the sand….Love Letter….Picnic blanket…sun-kissed by sunset….ROMANTIC!

This was a crazy great ART Alley and we were so blessed to be able to go in and capture a few images!

Now who wants to do an engagement photo shoot without a little playful fun!!! When Amanda and Ziyi mentioned that they brought their animal pajamas we were totally excited. How fun would it be to play with a little hunt, Amanda was perfect for the part! We noticed Ziyi didn’t try to run away from this Tiger!

Turns out Love won out!!!

This happen to be one of my favorite photo’s so we just had to include it!

Desiree & Steve’s Romance Session

Idyllwild, CA Engagement Photo’s by Steven Wayne Photography

From the moment we spoke to Desiree & Steve on the phone about their upcoming Wedding, we knew there was something very special about this couple! Creating a three day destination wedding celebrating their marriage, cherishing it with close family and friends, was just the beginning. We were over the top excited when they chose us to be part of their wedding journey and celebrate their love story with them! It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to see these two were made for each other, you will see why as the story unfolds!

Their Love Story

Their love story began when Steve was living in Texas working as an Engineer creating advanced rockets and spaceships. How exciting is that! Well even more exciting was how these two just happen to connect, not in space but here on earth! Desiree who was living in Los Angeles at the time was sent on site at the same location just as Steve happened to be stationed in Texas. As they worked side by side with the dreams and goals of advancing our travel to other planets, more than just Rocket Sparks began to develop between them. It didn’t take long for their passion for traveling the galaxies to create their own ‘love star’! Soon after they began dating Steve relocated to Los Angeles to move their relationship forward to engagement and marriage!

We think you will enjoy a few of these images that just begin to tell their love story!

Ashley & Nathan’s La Quinta Country Club Wedding

There is something magical that happens when two people meet and fall in love… They may be living in different countries, but when their eyes meet, none of that matters. It didn’t for Steven and I, and clearly not for these two either!  Nothing can separate us. Nathan found out, not even London was not too far away to pursue his beautiful bride!!!

Ashley and Nathan’s marriage journey was nothing short of a romantic story and a privilage for us to be part of! From their Central Park picnic date, to the charming box of sentimental gifts specially selected for his bride to unwrap on her wedding day, right down to the tear filled intimate wedding vows spoken to each other. Every moment was filled with romance, love and the excitement of their future together!

A Perfect Destination Wedding Location Choice

Ashley and Nathan decided on a destination wedding here in the Coachella Valley and fell in love with the La Quinta Resort and Spa as well as the La Quinta Country Club for their ceremony. Both offering unparalleled photographic backgrounds. The Resort with it’s warmth, magical feel and appeal of the wood burning scent as you wander through the property, the other for it’s clean and stellar architectural style. The La Quinta Country Club boasts a pallet that any bride can create their own, with the combination of locations they were set.

The Resort with its truly romantic charm was perfect for their ‘get ready’ location for both them and their out of town wedding guest. With so many backdrops at the Resort to choose from, it was a great idea to have some of their wedding photographs taken there first. Ashely loved the idea of using Morgan’s famous wood door for their “First Look” location. We loved it too, it made their time special and unique!

Wedding Day Highlights

Ashley and Nathan had one of the most fun bridal parties, we struggled to keep the camera steady from all the laughter! Some of their images were just fabulous in front of the famous Sante Fe Doors at the Resort!

Celebrating with them we hold memories of the kindness and love that surrounded their wedding day. Memories of sweet little giggle Ashley has. I still remember as her Dad walked her down the isle hearing them sharing and then Ashley’s adorable laughter. During the reception we were able to get to know our couple even more. The toast is one of our favorite parts of the day. As each loved one shared their story and love and a funny moments of the couple, we fall more in love with them. We remember thinking that they were perfectly made for each other! It was a happy ending to an amazing day! Congratulations!

Ohhh yes, and we still remember the weather forecast on Ashely and Nathan’s romantic Wedding day, it was going to be ‘delightful‘ and delightful it was!

MorrisFamily Christmas Photos

We were excited when Shelly contacted us and we had the opportunity to spend more time with this great family in the same week, what a blessing and a privilege! It truly warms our hearts!

Their home is absolutely beautiful and what a perfect location for great photographs, their front entry way is stunning. As photographers we are always looking for great light… the lighting is fantastic with the mountain backdrop nestled in this cove. Combine that with the beauty of this homes entry and talk about fabulous.  Of course with Christmas coming, it was a great time to capture some nice Christmas card photos too! Love the color coordination, the Morris family wins a 10 on putting together great combinations! We think you will enjoy a few of these previews!
