I’ve been looking forward to Haley and Brandon’s Brookview Ranch wedding for a year! When I met them to do their engagement shoot, I totally developed a couples crush. How could I not fall in love with Haley’s glowing smile and bubbly laughter and Brandon’s sweet devotion and earnest love towards her? They are one of those couples you just know are going to be old and grey together. I gather that they first began as just friends— I think when friendship turns into romance, that’s a sure bet as relationships go. Who doesn’t want to marry their best friend?
Haley and Brandon wed at the gorgeous Brookview ranch in Augora Hills, just north of Los Angeles. It’s really an amazing place, with horse stables, old Spanish barns and glorious views of the surrounding mountains. We found a lot of incredible spots for photos, from getting ready through to the sunset pictures.
Haley and Brandon chose sweet light details for their reception, featuring pink crystal goblets, lace runners, gold calligraphy, delicate green and pink florals, and much more. Their wedding had a sense of light hearted fun to the decor with a cute lounge area and a darling donut wall. Brookview ranch is the perfect place for a late summer whimsical wedding.
Hopefully these two don’t stray far away from me in their journeys together. I’d like to be photographing them for years to come as their family grows and as they move through their life of love together. I’m happy to call them friends and so glad I got to be a part of their beautiful love filled day. I happen to know at this moment they are wrapping up their honeymoon in Bali and heading home, and they should get these pictures as they are on their airplane! Get home safe you two.
