Berlin in Temecula

Last Friday I had the chance to photograph a concert by the famed 70’s-80’s group Berlin. If you’ve seen the movie Top Gun then you know the song that (I think) they are most famous for, “Take My Breath Away”.

A special thanks to Wiens Family Cellars for giving me this opportunity; to the Forty Nineteens for being such a wonderful support act; to sponsors such as Paradise of Temecula and Golden Crown Productions for making it all possible!

Finally, let us not forget what we were really there for – to support the charity Hospice of the Valleys.  It was a successful evening of entertainment!

I love Night Time Wedding Shots!

There is something so glamorous and slightly mysterious about night time wedding pictures. There are a couple of challenges in getting it done right. The first is inter-personal. You usually have to extract the couple from the dance floor in the heat of the reception frenzy. That can be fun!!DSC_6555

The second is technical. Balancing your artificial lights with the ambient light takes work, practice, and experience. The results can be so worthwhile though! What do you think?

This was such fun. Who wouldn’t want to have a cigar and a scotch in the grounds of a lovely winery such as Callaway?
