A delightful Summer’s day afternoon made brighter by the Western and Indian wedding of MJ and Rashid at The Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe. The couple’s ceremony and reception are captured in this sample of their lovely collection of The Crosby wedding photos. Surrounded by family and friends from across the globe for a wedding set at the exclusive resort, MJ and Rashid enjoyed a truly happy occasion that will be treasured for a lifetime, and preserved in a timeless collection of wedding photos and their exclusive wedding books.
The couple’s day of wedding photography began with both posed and natural photos of the bride and groom. Posed photos are often expected and will always be considered a must in wedding photography, but it’s often the natural-looking, candid photos that produce the most beautiful shots, like many of The Crosby wedding photos we made for MJ and Rashid and featured in this article. MJ and Rashid were also featured in another article for their engagement photography session that we captured a few months earlier.
The bride and groom pre-wedding photos, first look, and the shots we created after their ceremony, were captured around the nice architecture and grounds of The Crosby. But of course it was the moments of The Crosby wedding photos of MJ and Rashid’s ceremony that captured the attention and delight of their family and friends. Their wedding ceremony opened to a pair of bagpipers, which ushered the start of their wedding ceremony and procession.
The pre-wedding and ceremony portion of MJ and Rashid’s The Crosby wedding photos captured the couple in Western attire. With MJ looking lovely in her semi-sweetheart wedding dress, wedding updo hairstyle, very well-applied makeup, and holding a pink rose bouquet. Rashid looked very sharp in his black suit with white shirt and tie, cream-colored vest, with white handkerchief and white rose boutonniere. The attire contrasted nicely to the equally beautiful yet more traditional Indian bridal wear that MJ changed into for their reception, which of course we captured as a key part of The Crosby wedding photos.
The custom six-hour wedding photography package created for MJ and Rashid’s The Crosby wedding photos includes a private online gallery of photos for the couple to view and share (and so they too can also easily order professional prints of the special occasion), a collection of professional wedding prints, a DVD with all of their photos in high resolution and full print rights, and three wedding books (or albums). The albums include one main book of all their favorite images, plus two identical copies of that main book, one copy for each of their parents. Their wedding albums feature all edited, hand-laid images and layout, with final book production made in Italy.
