Once Upon a Time @ Bakers Ranch

Once Upon a Time..... was the theme for this gorgeous styled shoot we got to be a part of at Bakers Ranch.  Their team wanted to show off all the elements of their brand new Simply Incredible all inclusive wedding collection they are now offering.  Everything about it is freaking gorgeous.  We did this shoot around dusk so you still get the natural light but also can see the chandelier and twinkle lights in the trees.  I LOVE the X table setup that is lined with greenery, candles, and gold flatware.  Um, yes, that is a floral tree behind the head table that was then transformed into the cake table.  The x back chairs, linens and long benches add in a earth toned element and the white draping and chandeliers add in the elegant feel.  I love using models who are real couples because it brings the relationship and authenticity to what we are doing.  Sebastian looked James Bond like in this Michael Kors ultra slim tux, and Josie looked stunning in this just released Martina Liana gown.  One of unique ideas they have for the couple exchanging letters or gifts is having the groom drop it down from the balcony room where they guys get ready.  All 3 outside ceremony spaces were covered in ferns, crystals, lights and greenery.  I could write so much but I'm just going to let you look for yourselves:-)

Bakers Ranch

The same day we got to be a part of the Bakers Ranch Grand Opening we also got to be the first ones to photograph couples in some of the beautiful spots on the property.  The prettiness is worthy of it's own blog posting:-) Our models were actually Alla and Boris' son Alex and his wife Erin (which is extra special in itself) and Nolia (who works for Alla) and her husband Sam.  Kandice and I each took a couple and had some fun with the 3 gorgeous ceremony sites. This outdoor setting is really a photographer's dream! Here's some of our favorites:-) We are beyond excited to work with Bakers Ranch and their couples!!
