    Mouthwatering. Always such a pleasure, thank you for taking such gorgeous photos.

  2. Pavlos Karalis

    All of these are amazing, but that lead in image is especially iconic.

  3. Chloe

    I feel like you might have the Midas touch & turn all things into photographic gold! I love the styling here & how you’ve captured the luminescence of the light on her skin. Magic.

    As usual a really beautiful wedding with beautiful photos! Great job!

  2. Azhar Aris

    Hi Jose.. you always inspired other peoples with your photo! Great job !

  3. Another Stunner from Jose Villa | Taylor'd Events

    […] Jose Villa, is by far, the very best wedding photographer, in my opinion.  And as per usual he has delivered another stunner wedding set in the woods by Lake Tahoe.   Of course the subjects and event, he was able to photograph, are equally stunning.  Hats off to the planners on this one, such a beautiful wedding in the middle of the woods, is not an easy feat. And I cannot fail to mention that amazing aisle, I am obsessed with it! […]
