Whitney Family Lifestyle Photo Session….

We have watched this precious family over the last 4+ years as they not only grow up but it’s been beautiful to watch them grow together as well.

What a gift and a privilege it was to capture their first family picture in many years! We know from our own family photos’ that these images we are so blessed to be able to capture will be enjoyed by the family for generations to come!

We think their kids are gorgeous and we loved capturing them individually as well, we think you will agree they are stunning! Because the Whitney’s spent most of their lives in the Idyllwild area, we were excited to find an area that would be true to who they are! Finding this crazy great fence just a 10 minute drive from Idyllwild, was a perfect backdrop! We wanted the photos for their family to include absolute nature, be a bit rustic and mostly as natural as possible! We just had to start their session with their fabulous outfits, however,  as soon as we were able to capture those forever images, we were excited to have some fun with this family! We know from being involved with them in the youth group, they had a lot of ‘spunk’ in them! We have to apologize now Dad that you had to date a few hits for these fun photo’s of your family!! We trust you will think they are worth it after this!!!

We think you will enjoy this preview of some of their family photo session!!  Be sure to scroll down for the slideshow preview of more of their session!!

Morris Family Photos

We could not begin to tell you what a joy it is for us to grow with our couples as they become a family!

When we met our beautiful bride, Summer together with her soon to be Mother in law over 5 years ago, we could only dream of what the future might hold for them. Being part of their lives as they journey through marriage and start their family is the highest privilege we have as photographers.  Here their precious Bradly is now four years old and we remember taking his ‘one year old’ photos, it feels like just yesterday. And now we have baby brother Parker! How exciting!

Well when Shelly recently contacted us about doing some multi family, mini sessions while they were all visiting up on the Idyllwild area, we were thrilled! What a great time to celebrate and to photograph  some of their same friends we photographed in Summer and Billy’s wedding party too!

What a perfect setting in the beautiful pines, the weather was perfect for photos and everyone was having a great time! Idyllwild Inn is a charming place to say right in the heart of Idyllwild’s quaint town, we were super excited Shelly had decorated the front of one of the cabins with this charming fall colors and pumpkins to match. These are just a few of the previews from their session! Be sure to scroll down for the slideshow preview of more from their mini family photo shoot!

Josh – Idyllwild, CA

We have all heard the cliche that, it’s better to give than receive. And when we have the experience of truly giving from our heart for a purpose other than ourselves, we can truly experience the blessings on both sides. It’s a gift.

Sometimes in life you have the opportunity to use your gifts in someones life to make a difference. As photographers we often take for granted what power our cameras can have, the difference capturing the essence of who someone is or  sometimes the art of capturing images of someone in a way that helps them to see  themselves in new light, maybe for the first time or sometimes just using the gift as an act of love.  In hopes sometimes when investing in someone you might just have the chance of changing the trajectory of ones life. We never know until we reach out.

Steven and I fell in love with this family years ago when we finally made the leap and moved ‘up the hill’, as they call it. Watching this young boy grow into a man, we were blessed to be just a small part of his life! So when we had the opportunity to photograph him, we were over the top thrilled! We could have shot for hours more, taken a full day! The camera loved him! These are just a few more sneak peaks from his session! We think you are going to love them!

We loved them all and as you can see had a hard time taking any out even of the preview! Yikes! He sure is one handsome guy!! That is for sure!

Be sure to scroll down for more from his session in our slideshow preview!!!

Indian Wells Country Club Wedding by Steven Wayne Photography


Rayla & Rodney’s forever….

Sweet, tender, filled with excitement and joy…that is how we would describe our adorable bride Rayla!! Rodney is kind, considerate full of zeal and just a joy to be around…it was the perfect day! They were super excited about photographs and were playful and fun to capture! Their day was simple and relaxed and filled with love an intimate wedding can provide. They chose the gorgeous Indian Wells Country Club for their wedding, not just because Rayla happens to be a Golf Pro there, but because it was a wonderful back drop and the perfect setting for their guests. We think you will enjoy these previews from their day…


Blessings Rayla & Rodney!
