Hello, and welcome to the MFD Blog! I'm Nataly, and I'm a California Wedding Photographer. Grab some iced coffee (because iced coffee is better!) and enjoy viewing my latest work, helpful wedding education posts and getting a little peek into my life!

Brooke & Stanley | Temecula, CA Wedding Photographer

It’s a small world out there. When Brooke first inquired with me about her Secluded Garden Estate Temecula, CA Wedding she mentioned we went to the same High School. The more I spoke to her and got to know her I realized that not only did we attend the same High School but our main connection to each other and how she truly inquired with me was through one of our teacher’s we both dearly love! I actually photographed our teacher’s wedding a few years ago and Brooke has followed me since then.

When we met for our engagement session Stanley and Brooke were SO much fun. We laughed basically the entire time, mostly because Stanley’s sense of humor is just the best. Not only does he get the most beautiful smile out of Brooke but he gives everyone around him so much joy.

The week of their wedding California started to get random May showers… if you have ever lived in CA then you understand that rain in May is simply not something that happens. Apparently there are some storms rolling in and out of Southern California. It poured two days before the wedding and it cleared just in time for their big day! A couple days after the wedding and the rain is back with vengeance! Thankfully the rain was not a factor on their wedding day and the entire day was perfect. 

Brooke and Stanley’s day was so fun but I have to give it up to their bridal party which was SO helpful to myself and my second shooter. They really made the day easier with their attentiveness and help. They were bridal party goals for sure! 😉 They had a gorgeous outdoor reception surrounded by rolling hills, friends and family and you can truly see how much love they were surrounded by.

Brooke and Stanley, thank you SO stinking much for choosing me to part of your day. I loved capturing your beautiful day! I also got a great workout out of all of those gorgeous hills, ha! I can’t wait for y’all to enjoy your honeymoon really soon! 

XO, 

Nataly
