Applemoon Photography and the Wedding Experience

Applemoon Photography loves the opportunity of sharing the wedding experience. Shooting someone else's wedding reminds us of our own wedding, and in a sense, the experience of this shared reality renews us time and again. We cannot recommend a better decision than to marry the one you love and remain newly wed each and every year. We have such a feeling of gratitude and humility for being welcomed into the emotional wedding preparations.

Special Moments, A Sigh of Relief

There are so many favorite moments of ours during a wedding, especially since there are so many changes that occur during each part. Perhaps the best of all is seeing the bride and groom share an exhalation of relief after the ceremony. The feelings of pride, joy, and peace are utterly palpable. In this moment, it is the only time the couple will be alone during the festivities, so it's a cathartic point in time that we know is all too important. We love the sense of sharing this private moment with the couple.

Our Natural Style

We love shooting weddings with couples who have used us as engagement photographers, though it's not a prerequisite for our services. We find that it works so well when a couple works with us for their engagement shoot, because it is during that time that we establish a warm and productive rapport, making the wedding shoot all the more natural. You'll find that our photographic style is always natural and classic, never posed. We aim for a style as fresh and timeless as a couple's love.

Applemoon Photography on Location

Applemoon Photography shoots wedding photography not only in San Luis Obispo, but also Paso Robles weddings, Santa Margarita weddings, Edna Valley weddings, Arroyo Grande weddings, Avila Beach weddings, Shell Beach weddings, and Santa Barbara. Their cameras get especially happy capturing barn weddings, vineyard weddings, winery weddings, private estate weddings, and beach weddings. Each location is made as unique as the couple who is getting married there. No matter what location a couple chooses, indoors or outdoors, the setting is a reflection of your personalities and your love for each other.
