Santa Margarita Ranch Wedding



ChristineBentleyPhotography_3224

Such a sweet couple and such a sweet wedding! Young love, what can I say? There is something very very magical about it. Driving a few hours to Santa Margarita Ranch also proved to be the perfect backdrop for this oh so country duo. Rylan had just gotten back from deployment to the open arms of his fiance and now wife! It was really so wonderful to witness them together. The first look, the aniticipation and the love! I loved every last detail that they put together for this wedding. It turned out amazing! As a photographer we really wish that we could photograph couples all day long, but we know that the day is not about a photoshoot. It’s a celebration, so I am always very thankful when couples do allow me plenty of time to play, and in playing I mean deliver the most amazing images! Thank you Kerri Hatter of LVL Weddings and Events for your referral, and seeing that Jennifer is your niece I am honored that you even considered me. Thank you for trusting me with your family! Also thank you Michelle Fairless Photography for being my second shooter and pal while we conquered the country! I had a blast shooting with you!

There is so much to say about this couple that it becomes so hard to write about them. Thankful that they came my way via LVL’s amazing wedding education series, and we booked for their October wedding. THRILLED….I am always so thrilled to be part of a couple that is so much in love. Kara and Jason, are that couple….they just truly melt into each others arms and they are so easy to work with! I mean, how about those puppies too? All around such fun couple. A couple that has had their struggles already, with life, and they for sure know that the person at their side, is the person they want, in good and bad and everything in between. But lets not also state the obvious, that these two are just both drop dead gorgeous! So inside and out, they are two of the most beautiful people I have ever met. Thank you SOOO much for allowing me to witness your adoration for each other….it was such a beautiful day and I was honored to be a part of it! An incredible location with the most amazing team! Emily (LVL EVENTS)….you are amazing and you made sure that this day went on without a hitch! Brian (Elevated Pulse), you are truly amazing at what you so, transforming that room with stunning lighting and of course keeping the dance floor full! My FAV video team to work with, Brian and Ryan of Perryfield Films….I’d swear that together we create the most stunning images. Thank you Kristine for being an incredible second shooter and again to the most amazing couple! Design Visage, Emily and Ella, the girls simple looked amazing!!!!

Palazzo Mansion  San Clemente



ChristineBentleyPhotography_2646

It happens, when you decide to be a doctor you know? You have to go to school, and you have to meet people, and sometimes you get to meet the person that you are going to marry. For Eric, it happened to be this Princess…yes a real Princess, in fact runner up for Miss PERU!!! Wow! I mean, we can all tell that the camera loves Jax, but she takes princess to a whole new level!

I think what I loved most about their ceremony, was seeing those dreamy blue eye of Eric’s when they first set them on his bride as she walked down the aisle with her father….he did his best to keep those tears in but but much can hide from our cameras. It was so delightful as they both released two doves, to symbolize their love, and dozens after their vows were complete.

After having a stunning ceremony on the grounds of the St. Regis, we finished the celebration at a private home in the San Clemente Hills, by Venues in Paradise. What a terrific celebration, amazing family and some pretty rad dancing! Congrats Jax and Eric your love is as beautiful as your wedding day! XXOO Thanks you Sanya from VIP Venues in Paradise for such a great event, and Amanda Hardest of the St. Regis as always for being so gracious!

New Orleans Wedding Royal Sonesta



ChristineBentleyPhotography_2573

My first few conversations about this wedding began last April. I was contacted by Terry Cambise and was told her client was interested in hiring me to photograph her wedding in New Orleans! Oh YES PLEASE! Of course I would be honored, and from the moment we booked I was very excited!! Fast forward a few months, and finally I was talking to my bride. You see how that happens? IF I shoot your wedding, you become a #ChristineBentleyBride, or groom….and I kind of take you on as my own! Ha ha, after all, I am telling the most important day of your life right? Well….so finally my crazy super busy executive for a bride, had to fly to Los Angeles to get her custom Michael Costello gown fitted, so, Southern Style, we HAD to do a formal bridal portrait for her escort table display….and a boudoir session, to which I would love to show you even ONE photo, but I wouldn’t dare….until maybe one day Malena gives me the green light! Anyways, we spent a lot of time together and like all my brides, I believe that we developed a trust. My client’s best interest are always my priority, especially when I can call them friends. In the end, I want them to always have the best photos possible….and I want them too also enjoy their day, after all it is pretty magical! So I enjoyed showing up in New Orleans with a warm heart, very much looking forward to shooting this wedding. There were a lot of moving parts and many things going on, from the humidity, to the heat, fireworks and lots of bling! I certainly could not have photographed this amazing wedding if it wasn’t without the help of the phenomenal team that accompanied me! Thank you Bob Davis and Diego Martirena for flying from Chicago, and of course Kristine Andrews for coming from the OC with me. We certainly had a blast, and I would do it all over again in a heart beat! Malena and Mathew, your wedding was amazing and I wish you both nothing but happiness! XXOO

Montage Laguna Beach Wedding



Christine Bentley Photography.

So Much…..LOVE! I mean fun, or wait, I do mean LOVE! Isn’t it the most incredible thing in the world to find your best friend, and fall so deeply in love that you marry each other? That is how I see these two! Not only are they incredibly beautiful and so much fun, but they truly love having fun together. I totally loved seeing them glance at each other, smile and even laugh at each other…..and ummm…speaking of laughing Alexa has to have one of the greatest laughs ever! I know what you were thinking, you were probably thinking I was going to say her eyes, and her hair, or her smile…or how about that incredible hair( I know I said it twice)! Well….then I’d have to agree she is one of the great ones, a bride that I loved to photograph…and yes we also had fun! They had an incredible beach wedding with amazing floral designs by Bloom Box….that arch! WOW! and her shoes! Hello! The view at the Montage is very hard to beat….but again, how fun was that Tribute to Louisiana’s Second Line and New Orleans! How FUN!…and can I just tell you that I LOVED their first dance! They totally nailed it and it was a pleasure to watch and photograph! I wish these two nothing but the BEST! I certainly hope that their wedding day was everything that they dreamed it would, as they were for sure the clients I thought they would be! Congratulations you guys! XXOO Thank you Melissa and Elsa for being so wonderful and creating a flawless event! XXOO
