We first met Ken and Brenda on an editorial assignment for N2 Publishing. We had a 12-month contract with N2 Publishing, which involved photographing people for the cover and feature editorial for Meadowview Magazine.  It was a great 12 months. We met a lot of really great people and had some super fun assignments during that time.  One of the assignments was to photograph Ken Fuller and Brenda Morken for the feature story and magazine cover. The title was; “Meet the Fullers.”  Now, technically, Ken and Brenda weren’t married, so the title of Meet the Fullers wasn’t completely accurate, more on this in a moment.

We had a great photo shoot with them and we all just hit it off really well.  After the shoot was over, they invited us to stay for a bit and have a glass wine. One glass turned into two and we got to know more about them. We learned that Ken is a successful small business owner and avid golfer, and Brenda has a long history in gymnastics, the beauty industry and currently works for a popular wine club.

About a week or so after photographing them at their home, we invited them over to view their photos. During the viewing, Ken revealed that since the article was going to be called; Meet the Fullers, they decided to make it official and finally get married! Not only that, but they also wanted to have us photograph it! We couldn’t have been happier for them.

Since they announced the big news to us, we’ve gotten together with them many times socially and thoroughly enjoy spending time with them. John has even played golf with Ken several times! They’re both great people, and we weren’t the only ones to think so. Everyone we talked to at their wedding had nothing but wonderful things to say about them both.

The wedding was held in their backyard in the upscale Meadowview neighborhood in Temecula, CA, but this wasn’t your typical backyard wedding. They went all out to the point that it looked like an actual wedding venue!  I’m still amazed at the level of detail they incorporated and how beautiful everything looked.

We’re so happy to have met Ken and Brenda and become friends.  We felt warmly welcomed and appreciated.
Ken and Brenda, congratulations!  We love you guys!

    I always adore your detail shots. They just pull everything together so well, and the Fullers look like a beautiful couple. Their spirit is lovely. xo
