Elegant Temecula Winery Wedding Styled Shoot with 3 Couples is Rich in Black Tie Style

This gorgeous shoot styled by Katie Hammond Photography was a photographer's dream! Three amazing and very different couples, an elegant bridal party, over-the-top florals, beautiful roses, and even tablescapes with kale...every detail was bold and classically elegant. Each area of this expansive property gave a different feel to the shoot, yet managed to weave together to create one glorious finished product. From the pond with waterfall, to the Mediterranean inspired alfresco dining area, to the low hanging trees that feel as though you've been transported to Savannah Georgia, this day had everything! 

Couple #1 Black Tie Wedding Style; black tie all the way with beautiful wedding cake, bold invitation portfolio, kale centerpieces, and stunning bridesmaids dresses.

Couple #2 Black Tie Wedding Style; clean and simple bridal gown, a classic tux and some pretty nice moves!

Couple #3 Black Tie Wedding Style; a dreamy gown, a gorgeous full bouquet of ivory roses and sweet love.

These Wedding Photos show why Black and White should always be part of Your Wedding Album

San Diego wedding Photographer Tim Otto Photography does it again.  Capturing real people and real emotion at a wedding is a gift and a talent; things Tim clearly possesses.  And there’s always something about black-and-white when it comes to photographing people - it’s strips away all the distractions and allows you to see the energy and connection and the emotions.  Another bonus? A Bride's skin is flawless in black and white and her look transcends current day trends to become timeless. So take a tip from Tim and make sure to add some black-and-white images to your wedding album!
