A cozy winter day for these two lovebirds...
I have so much love for Karli and Kelly because of who they are and how they love each other. Karli and Kelly met in 2013 and their lives have never been the same. Being around them is intoxicating. Their energy, vibes, and warmth makes everyone in the room light up. They inspire others with their connection and respect for one another. On December 1st, Karli and Kelly said "I do" in front of their closest friends and family at this vintage mansion in Camarillo. As a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I was so pumped to be working at this beautiful venue with such an amazing couple and vendor team.
The Camarillo Ranch House is a historic mansion that has been preserved for hundreds of years that now functions as a wedding venue. Upon arriving to the venue, you're met with gorgeous landscaping, serene gardens, and towering trees. The mansion is beautifully preserved. The Victorian style mansion is jaw-dropping, making it the PERFECT backdrop for sharing personal vows. Karli and Kelly did their first look on the lawn of the Camarillo Ranch House. They had a private moment together as they tearfully shared their vows. We spent some time doing couple portraits in front of the house. Karli and Kelly are a super fun couple, so it was all giggles.
Due to last minute weather changes (rain), the wedding ceremony was moved inside. The incredible vendor team was able to convert the barn into a rustic, winter wonderland with natural touches. Surrounded by pine trees and twinkling lights, Karli and Kelly's close friend lead a beautiful ceremony in front of their closest family and friends. During the cocktail hour, the ceremony space was flipped into a cozy reception area. Multi-colored glass goblets, handwritten name cards, dried oranges, and pine garlands were perfectly placed on the tables for each guest. The rest of the night was absolutely incredible. The two lovebirds danced for the first time as a married couple to a couple of their friends performing a song. They even danced with each of their parents! It was so sweet.
This was such a beautiful wedding and I feel so honored to have captured it. Karli and Kelly are some of the most beautiful people I've had the chance to meet. If you're looking into having your wedding at this amazing venue, contact me! I'd love to be there.
Here's what Karli and Kelly had to say about their experience with me:
"I came across Breanna while searching instagram for wedding photographers. I instantly fell in love with her style of photography and the way she captured such beautiful and intimate moments with her clients! As a queer couple, it was of heightened importance for us to find a photographer that we would feel comfortable and safe with. After looking through her website, considering testimonials and reading her mission statement, we felt strongly she would be someone we could work well with! She only confirmed that feeling after our first call! I feel like we connected with ease and it became clear that we shared similar values and she would be a great fit for us! All of this was absolutely true! Though things were fairly wild on the day of the wedding (as they tend to be lol) Breanna made sure to capture all the moments we hoped for AND MORE! She is so incredibly talented and the photos were BEAUTIFUL! I really appreciated how they were so reflective of us as a couple. There were sweet moments, gorgeous moments, funny moments and moments we will surely hold close to out hearts for the rest of our lives! We cannot thank you enough for being an essential part of our big day!"
