A Gorgeous Day in Dana Point

I know I always mention that "we had gorgeous weather this day", but I really always mean it! The sun was out, the skies were deep blue, it wasn't too hot, and the ocean breeze just made it so nice to be outside. Simona and Octavian's wedding and ceremony both took place at Cannon's Seafood Grill in Dana Point overlooking the harbor. We had planned their "first meeting" at the San Juan Capistrano Train Station. This is when the couple would meet each other for the first time during their wedding day. It becomes a very special part of the day because it's dedicated to the bride and groom, there's no rush, the pictures come out natural and romantic, and the whole time is memorable. Simona and Octavian had a chance to be together in an intimate setting before all the day's events began, which created some great photographic moments. Be sure to click here to view their teaser slideshow!










Thank you Neil Rosales for coming out to shoot with me - it was a blast!

Here is the answer to your question about the silhouette shot...

Off camera flash (I used PW's)

Aperture set to F9

The room was dimly lit... not too dark, not overly light
