California Ranch Wedding: Joanna & Justin

California Ranch Wedding

I met Joanna and Justin (and their adorable pup) a few months before their wedding for their Fort Baker engagement session. I was so excited when it was finally time for their wedding in the golden hills of Walnut Creek at Diablo Ranch. I am a huge fan of outdoor weddings, big old trees and lots of smiles. Here are some of my favorite images from their day!

If you’re on the fence about seeing each other before the ceremony–aka a first look–I’m here to recommend it! You’ll be able to take the day at a much slower pace and take care of portraits ahead of the ceremony. And no, it does not take away from the emotion or excitement of the ceremony!

I loved these gorgeous florals full of many different textures and colors. An absolutely beautiful job by Katharina Stuart.

I adore the picture above right of them walking away from the altar with the biggest grins! Then we did a few more wedding party, family pictures and couple pictures in the beautiful golden light before heading to the cocktail hour.

I’m so grateful I got to be a part of Joanna and Justin’s beautiful California wedding day! Nothing like those golden hills to remind me of just how luck I am to live here!
