Ashley and Brandon's Sonora Wedding at Gee Family Farm

Ashley and Brandon's Gee Family Farm Sonora Wedding-23.jpg

Ashley and Brandon’s wedding this Sunday in Ashley’s home town of Sonora was stunning. SOOOO many gorgeous details from their life in California and New Mexico, and such an amazing day full of love. I was fortunate enough to meet the bride and groom in New Mexico when I worked with a team there for a wedding style shoot. We got to run through an entire wedding day once before so I knew that Ashley and Brandon’s real wedding day would be just as beautiful as the love between them. :)

I was so inspired by how the bride and groom brought their family and friends all together and really made it an event to celebrate not only their love, but the love that everyone felt for them. The venue was Ashley’s mothers home, Mama Gee, and it was truly spectacular. Every moment and detail felt so intimate and personal.There was style and thought put into every corner, but still had a real feeling of wildness, with chickens, Turkeys, and dogs running around the entire day.

I am so luck that I was chosen to be there for Ashley and Brandon’s big day, and I loved the hospitality and warmth that surrounded their day. So a big warm congratulations to the sweetest couple. I hope these pictures help you remember the warmth and love of your wedding for years to come!

Hugs,

Taryn

Jordan and Alex's Ramona Wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle

Jordan and Alex's Mt. Woodson Ramona Wedding Great Woodland Photography 8-31-19-28.jpg

This Saturday in Ramona was a perfect summer day! It was so so hot, but Jordan and Alex, and their whole wedding party handled the heat like champs. They really took advantage of the gorgeous outdoor space at Mt. woodson, surrounded by giant old oak trees and beautiful purple and plum florals. I was absolutely gaga over the brides BHLDN dress, which had a pink tint to it and glowed in the sunlight.

It was such a great day, really focused on the bride and groom and their sweet families. The brides brother, Matthew, performed the ceremony that was full of personal details, jokes and sweet emotion. The brides mother, designed the stunning invitation sweet. I think my favorite moment of the night was the mother son dance to American Girl (Tom Petty) where the grooms mother just danced her heart out and Alex (the groom), dancing next to his mom just bursting with laughter and love.

Thank you Alex and Jordan, for choosing me to be with you on your big day! I hope you love all these sneak peaks and I can’t wait to show you more!

Hugs!

Modern Romance Site Santa Fe New Mexico

This was an amazing opportunity right from the start, and being able to capture this talent on film and digital really took this styled shoot to another level, of soft but structured. The venue, Site Santa Fe, one of the most unique and influential contemporary art spaces in the United States was the perfect backdrop for this shoot. It had the modern , minimalist features and decor we had in mind.

Any bride who comes to Santa Fe to get married appreciates the art and history behind this land of enchantment. We utilized many areas, including the sky terrace and courtyard. This space is one of few rooftop views in Santa Fe, ideal for a cocktail hour or rehearsal party. They have an impeccable event inventory, we were able to showcase their modern all white bar.

It's neighbor, Paloma Restaurant and catering, provided handmade cocktails, a salsa bar, and dessert. Pastry Chef Owen Laurion featured dessert was an Autumn lime tart, grapefruit meringue, candied chile dust, and blue corn tuile. With a fresh interpretation of Mexican cuisine, everything in their kitchen is made from scratch. Paloma creates dishes with ingredients that are carefully sourced and seasonal.

Julia Walley of Letterpress Made provided the invitation suite and other paper-goods. She incorporated design elements and colors of the southwest, the paper food rake on a contemporary feel that reflect the clean lines and modern atmosphere of Site Santa Fe. Reigned in design evokes a meditative simplicity, but unexpected surprises are to be found - this suite included a unique tear-apart reply card where guests mail back just one half.

Local artist, Isabel Hees showcased her beautiful fine art prints as the ceremony backdrop. Again, Site Santa Fe is a mecca for local artistry so we were so excited to have this installation as the focal point of the design. Isabel's handmade prints were the perfect combination of feminine and minimalistic.

Melissa Paquin from Renegade Floral blew it out of the park with her modern cascade bouquet! She incorporated creams, whites, local foliage, and pops of yellow in her pieces. Yellow and gold were the true inspiration behind the flowers we chose for this shoot. She wanted something crisp, modern and bold to stand amongst the cool grey and white tones of the space. Unexpected white Japanese ferns, flowering eucalyptus and onsidium orchids were mixed along foraged aspen branches that were in the perfect transition from green to gold. Melissa honed in on the color blocking aspect of the shoot. She was able to bring in the earthiness into this art space with her terra cotta pottery and local Aspen leaves for the ceremony florals.
