Solstice Canyon Engagement | Chandra and Joe

It was my first time and Solstice Canyon and I have to say that I was blown away! As an east coast girl who grew up going to a high school with its own farm animals, seeing rolling hills of green, tall trees, and the sound of a moving stream made me feel like I was in Maryland again. Chandra and Joe are were just so much fun to hang out with. They are high school sweethearts (I’ve had a lot of those lately which makes me so happy!), and I absolutely adored Chandra’s dress from Lulu’s. She had her hair and makeup done by the talented Dana of Cheek to Cheek Makeup Artistry and looked absolutely stunning for her photos! Her and Joe are such easy going people and it’s their love for each other is so obvious. I cannot wait for their wedding in July at Walnut Grove and I am sure it is going to be a fun and beautiful day!

Ojai Ranch Engagement | Marisa and Jason

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Marisa and Jason who are two high school sweethearts! They are both horse ranchers in Ojai who take care of over 50 horses, and it was only fitting to shoot their photos right there on the ranch. It was amazing to see what goes into ranching and learn about their barrel racing, roping, and how they provide horseback tours through Ojai (I hope I’m saying all of the correct terms!). I also got to meet mini-horses, a bull, Marisa’s cow, and a baby cow named Wiggles. It was a such a fun day and I am sure their wedding on the ranch is going to be absolutely gorgeous. The day we did their photos also just-so-happened to be their 9 year anniversary. How sentimental! Enjoy!
