We were so thrilled when Rachel and Jeff contacted us through A Practical Wedding about photographing their wedding at Condor’s Nest Ranch in Pala. (You know, right outside San Diego, in Jamie’s backyard.) You have seen the place, right? Pretty epic; farm animals, a swimming pool, a rad and rambling old house, and crazy beautiful rolling green hills as far as we could see. Oh, and then there was Rachel and Jeff. They had the most beautiful wedding, you guys. The outpouring of love from family and friends throughout the whole day was so moving. Their ceremony was incredibly thoughtful, funny, and clearly so fitting of their relationship. And then of course there was the dance party, during which everyone busted out their best moves! As usual, we shot on a bit of film (mmm, film), and in general, had a blast. Thank you so much Rachel and Jeff, and congratulations!
Hi friends. Jamie here. I have recently returned from the most amazing vacation at the most beautiful home on the most perfect beach in all of Mexico. (Well, one of them anyways.) Need proof? Photos in parts one, two, and three. But mostly I am here to tell you, Casa Ninamu and Teitiare Estates would be the most excellent location for a laid back beach wedding. (Or even a fussy one.) And we would be the most excellent choices for laid back photographers at said wedding. (Obviously.) (But sorry, we are not fussy. Though we don’t mind if you and your wedding are.) Carry on.
Last month Jamie and I had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of my friends Kelly & Ken. They rented a ginormous house in Palm Springs, less than a mile from the Ace Hotel where the after party (or shall I say parties) took place. DJ Brian Waters kept it going late into the night spinning records with the help of young Lilly who is like 12, going on 29. There was a lot of life at this party and a ton of love.
We are so honored to be sharing these photographs with you today! Ashley + Minh were 1 of our 3 100 layer cake contest winners. They had an amazingly beautiful wedding ceremony and celebration on a private working ranch in the Santa Ynez valley. Check out the signs that ASHLEY MADE HERSELF!
Thank you Ashley + Minh for letting us share this day with you!
