Mt. Palomar Wedding In Temecula, California
When I captured Chantelle and Kurt’s Carlsbad engagement photos earlier in the year I knew their wedding was going to be pretty freaking rad. First of all, Kurt loves drinking IPAs and when we were at Pizza Port in Carlsbad during the engagement session we crushed a few beers while discussing our love for the tasty cold beverage of the Gods. Needless to say, I was a big fan of Kurt pretty quickly. Chantelle on the other hand is more quiet and reserved. She brought her small puppy Lapoo for the engagement session and as a father to two small puppies I also felt that instant connection with her. I believe Bill Murray said it best, “I am suspicious of people who do not like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn’t like a person”. I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Murray. But enough about their engagement session because these two got married at the beginning of October and I was lucky enough to photograph the love!
The venue Kurt an Chantelle chose was Mt. Palomar Winery in Temecula, California. This was my first time shooting at the Temecula winery and overall I thought it was a good spot. I do wish their were more areas with shade coverage though as it felt like I was front lighting everything earlier in the day. But I need to stop bitching about the small stuff and focus on the good shizz. We took photos in the vine, got some cool negative space shots with the bride/groom and wedding party then partied until 11:00p.m. As a father to a 17-month old daughter being out that late is now abnormal for me. I have become an old man. My face is weathered and I constantly smell like elderly human (body odor+dirty laundry). But f*** it! Here is to drinking Jameson early, IPAs all night and kicking ass! Cheers Kurt & Chantelle on a AMAZING wedding!

I speak in third person as if I am an athlete because it makes me feel powerful. I feel like Donald Trump. So if you want to use any of Ryan Horban’s wedding photos then hit the contact tab and ask him (me). If you steal them I will egg your house and when I say egg your house I mean I am going to throw poop at your front door like a wild chimpanzee in mating season. Thank you!
