Rachel & Don’s rehearsal dinner on the farm

I think it’s so smart of our clients to hire us to photograph their rehearsal dinners. Not only will they have wonderful images to remember the night by, but most importantly, it gives everyone a chance to get to know each other.

More than any other vendor, the photographer will have the most one on one contact with not only the bride and groom but with their families and bridal party during the course of the wedding day. By having us all meet before hand in such a relaxed environment, all photo jitters are cast away. Also, for us photographers, it’s helpful to get a “lay of the land” and observe family dynamics. Plus, did I mention how much fun rehearsal dinners are to shoot?

This one was especially so. First of all, it was set in one of our all time favorite venues, Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse. This place makes for a stunning backdrop no matter what the occasion.

Of course, we couldn’t resist the urge to pull Rachel and Don aside for a few minutes to do some romantic shots. That gorgeous golden light was calling to us and we had to make the most of it.

Soon, they were back to their party enjoying a delicious meal and discovering everyone’s “Blues Name”. Have you heard of this game? Find the first letter of your first, middle and last name on the chart and ta-da, you too will have a really cool blues name. You can call me Happy Gumbo Jones!

I’ll be posting lots of images from Rachel and Don’s gorgeous wedding tomorrow so please come on back.
