A Beautiful Landscape- Bella Collina Wedding

Yes, yes, I know, I haven't updated the blog in a while- but so much has been going on!

We're coming back from our hiatus strong. We've had a rather rainy fall-winter season in Southern California these past few years, and 2018 hasn't been different. After another stormy Friday, we awoke on a Saturday morning to rain again in San Diego. As we loaded up our gear and headed to Bella Collina in San Clemente, the weather magically cleared and we were welcomed to sunshine and a beautiful background, which allowed for drone shots and formals.

Details by Haleh covered the make up, sofreh, and wedding planning/day of coordination. She helped make the day move smoothly and allowed us to get our shots.

The bridal party was also energetic and animated and helped execute the fun shots flawlessly.

Here's is their trailer from the day, with entertainment provided by DJ Taraneh.

Maderas Golf Course Wedding- One of San Diego's best wedding venues

There's lots of amazing golf courses in San Diego. I even got married at one.

But our recent wedding at the Maderas Golf Resort made us fall in love with the entire venue and staff. Obviously we're a bit biased because we evaluate a venue based on the lighting and options for photography and filming. With Maderas, we had a beautiful bridge. Even though we had to get some shots midday, we were equipped for high speed sync so it just added to the mood. The wedding was a "fusion wedding," with the bride being Armenian and the groom being Persian. It was a great mixture as it brought certain traditions and customs from both to combine into one joyous celebration.

Just like any golf course, we had to work around the golfers, but there were enough places around to keep moving until another one opened up. We were also shooting at the last weekend of the year, which is one of their busiest days.

They have a huge ballroom and a wonderful outside area for the ceremony and cocktail hour. If you're thinking of a place to get married, definitely give this venue a chance!

2018 Wedding deals more crazy than bit coin madness- what Rugger is offering new for the year!

Happy New Year!

If you're reading this, you survived the crazy year of 2017. And if you were one of the lucky one to get engaged, or you're about to get engaged, or have a bestie who is having a wedding this year, make sure to have them check out what Rugger is offering!

Here's a short 1 minute commercial briefly touching upon the 5 main points, and we'll go over in more detail below.

San Diego Wedding Photography & Film- The best incentives in existence from Rugger Productions on Vimeo.

So what's all that mean? Are we really giving a 4K 65 inch LG Oled TV away? Have we gone nuts?
We haven't- and yes, our top cinematography package consists of 8K filming and 4K delivery, and what's the point of having the best quality video if you don't watch it on 2017 best reviewed 4K TV? Well, we're going to make sure we have you covered in that area.

We're also creating unique, 1 minute romantic black and white films with our upper tier packages, whether you go with a photo or video package. These are custom made, shot in 4K films graded in black and white by one of her expert colorists.

Our Elite Membership- you can purchase at any time during any photoshoot, and it includes 1 year of printed photos, in ANY size, delivered to you monthly, and 2 photoshoots for any occasion- birthday, anniversary, boudoir, party, or commercial. If you book this with your wedding package, you get 50% off. But imagine, getting a photo of your choosing delivered to you each month!

And how about an engagement with every shoot, photo or video? Why not? It gives you practice for the big day, and you'll have some photos/video prior to your big day!

Last but not least, it wasn't a typo- photos edits and delivered within 7 business day! Films delivered within 14 business days! Why do you have to wait? We have a dedicated preparer that prepares the raw files the night of the wedding so that I can begin editing the morning after.

What else is there that we didn't mention?

We also have the only 100 page photo book for our highest photography package option. Yes- 100 pages!
We retouch a select number of your images and also offer the black and white versions complimentary.
We have exclusive locations in San Diego available for engagements, pre-wedding, and trash the dress shoots.
