Esther + Daniel [Orcutt Ranch Wedding]



Some things are just meant to be.

In this case, the wedding of Daniel and Esther at Orcutt Ranch in Canoga Park. A couple weeks before their nuptials, the three of us were scouting the ranch grounds, specifically a bamboo grove, and I happened to come across an interesting engraving on one of the stalks. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but it's little moments like these where life seems to "wink" and remind us of the larger magic at hand. (And if not, it's just a really wonderful coincidence!)

Orcutt Ranch tempts you to loose track of time and spend all day shooting on it's grounds. It's just that inspiring. Orange groves, rose mazes, and a classic white gazeboo presented itself as the perfect staging ground for a bride and groom locking eyes for the first time. And that's the real charm here. Daniel and Esther brought a wonderfully creative signature style to their wedding, and it was a true pleasure collaborating with them and sharing ideas to capture just the right photographs.

I'm so glad we had the chance to work together. From our first meeting to the delivery of images, it's been a real treat. Written in the stars perhaps.... and then some.
