TAP Ranch: Nicole & Jesse

I am excited to share Nicole and Jesse’s rustic wedding at TAP Ranch near Santa Clarita on the blog today! These two are the nicest people and so easy going.

They started off their wedding day getting ready at the Sweetwater Movieland Ranch. This is also where they had their First Look and took some portraits together and with their bridal party. It was an overcast day which was perfect for having some nice even light in their photos!

After they we finished at Sweetwater we headed over to TAP Ranch for the wedding ceremony and reception. The best part about TAP Ranch is that it’s a horse ranch and who doesn’t love horses? The guests were seated on hay bales and the ceremony took place at the top of a small hill by one of the barns. It did start raining a little towards the end of the ceremony and got pretty chilly but everyone still kept smiling!

The reception took place under the stars with pretty patio lights. Their first dance was so beautiful to watch. As the music played in the background they both were beaming and even tearing up over how happy they were to be married.

I think my favorite part from Nicole and Jesse’s day was the look on Jesse’s face when he saw Nicole for the first time. Jesse covered his mouth with his hand as tears began to well up in his eyes. It was perfect!

Congrats Nicole and Jesse! I am so happy for the two of you! Thank you for having be capture your beautiful day. Your love for one another, kind demeanors and easy going personalities were what I loved about working with the two of you. All the best to you both in your future together…Megan

Ashley & James: Horse Ranch Engagement

I had an amazing time with these two durning their engagement session at the Tyler Horse Ranch in Lake Hughes, California owned by James’ family. I seriously could have spent the entire day walking around the property taking pictures. As a little girl I dreamed of having my own horse and although I never ended up getting one I did have a good friend that lived near a horse ranch and we often spent our summer afternoons with the horses. The old barn, farm equipment, horses and dirt roads reminded me of home. Loved it!

We walked around the property stopping here and there when we found spots we liked. Ashley’s dress was what she also wore for their first serious date to see a horse race at Los Alamitos. During the session Ashley had fun getting a running start when she jumped on James and he twirled her around in the old barn. It was so fun to capture these two laughing and having fun with each other. James totally had thing for the tractors so we made sure to get the tractors in the pictures too. 🙂

These two are so in love and it’s all over their faces! I could tell from the time we first met that they both thought the world of one another.  James is so sweet on Ashley and she couldn’t be more happy to be his girl. These two are the sweetest people and I could not be more excited for their wedding next year at the Tyler Ranch! Congrats on getting engaged you two!
