On the morning of Katie and Alex’s wedding at Rancho Diablo del Dormido, it rained. I happened to be outside right when the rain began to fall, and I immediately thought of Katie and Alex. I knew they were getting married outdoors with an amazing view and I hated the thought of them not being able to take advantage of such a gorgeous location because of rain. But, as I made my way up to the ranch, the clouds parted and the temperature grew warmer, and by the time the wedding day had officially begun, there was absolutely no sight of rain. It was perfect.
In fact, the entire day was beautiful, and it was lovely to witness Katie and Alex’s descent into wedded bliss. Katie and Alex, thanks for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day. It was an honor and a privilege! Here are a few of my favorites.
My second shooter, Harmony Ayala-Ruiz, pointed out this adorable red heart chair and I immediately knew it would play a part in detail shots of Katie’s shoes. Good spotting, Harmony! Thanks for all your help.
Katie and Alex chose to do a First Look. This new wedding tradition is often times one of the more special moments of a wedding day.
Katie’s father passed away just a couple of months before the wedding, but he was honored and very present the entire day. Katie’s uncle stepped in to walk her down the aisle and the ceremony.
Rancho Diable del Dormido is now one of my favorite venues ever. Every nook and cranny was just gorgeous and the views were breathtaking.
