Wedding photos at Spanish Hills Country Club:

Inna and Terry inquired about me photographing their wedding at Spanish Hills Country Club just a few months ago and after several emails, they decided to book me. They both work in aviation and met at a convention in New Orleans a few years back, sharing a love of hiking and the great outdoors. Terry popped the question while on a weekend getaway in Santa Ynez and they were planning an intimate celebration with Inna’s parents (who were flying in from Russia), Terry’s teenage children and their young son, Max.

Getting ready photos at Embassy Suites By Hilton Mandalay Beach Resort:

While my second photographer headed to Inna and Terry’s home to document the groom and his groomsmen getting ready, I went to the Embassy Suites By Hilton Mandalay Beach Resort where Inna was preparing with her bridesmaids. I photographed her having the final touches applied to her makeup and sharing in this special moment with her mom and friends, as well as grabbing a touching moment with her dad and Max.

After stepping into her gorgeous gown with the help of her bridesmaids, I photographed Inna’s mom helping to secure the bride’s necklace and the moment she offered gifts of jewelry to her bridesmaids. I also grabbed a candid black and white photo as Inna helped Max to get dressed in his cute suit before capturing some up-close portraits of the bride looking absolutely radiant.

Inna’s dad then arrived for the father-daughter first look and I used the opportunity to capture a special family moment with Inna, her parents, and Max. We then headed to the elegant lobby area of Embassy Suites By Hilton Mandalay Beach Resort for some portraits of the bride and her bridesmaids on the sweeping staircase.

Ceremony photos at Spanish Hills Country Club:

It was then time to make the drive over to Camarillo and the Spanish Hills Country Club where the couple’s garden ceremony was to take place. Inna and Terry wanted to keep things traditional and without a first look, so I made sure to capture the groom’s reaction as he watched his beautiful bride walk down the aisle and got his first glimpse!

In addition to documenting the couple’s reactions as they exchanged vows and rings in the late-afternoon light, I also captured those of their family and bridal party watching on. After being pronounced “husband and wife”, the couple sealed their marriage with a kiss and made their joyous recessional walk to be congratulated by family and friends.

Post-ceremony portraits at Spanish Hills Country Club:

With the light fading fast, we worked swiftly to capture family formals and bridal party portraits, including a playful one of Inna and her bridesmaids hiding behind their bouquets. I also grabbed some portraits of the newlyweds kissing in front of their bridal arch before heading to the front courtyard of Spanish Hills Country Club to incorporate the ornate fountain. In addition, Inna had specifically requested some shots including the elegant wooden door of Spanish Hills Country Club and we also got creative with a shot of the couple embracing beneath her veil.

Reception photos at Spanish Hills Country Club:

Inna and Terry’s intimate reception was being held in one of the Spanish Hills Country Club’s ballrooms, with proceedings kicking off with their first dance. Everyone then had the opportunity to hit the dance floor before speeches from one of Inna’s girlfriends and Terry’s son.

After capturing a fun photo of Max and his friend sharing fries, I documented the father-daughter dance and cake-cutting ceremony before grabbing an action shot of Inna’s bouquet toss and the garter removal. It was then open dancing for the rest of the evening, ending what had been an incredible day in Camarillo.
