Quail Ranch Wedding Photos | Simi Valley, California
Full transparency, I am getting married this year and I loved this venue so much that I inquired about it. It checks all the boxes in being affordable, all-inclusive, intimate, and stunning views. When I say this is one of the best venues in Los Angeles and Simi Valley, I am not lying.
The bride (Marjorie) and groom (Jose) were some of the most enjoyable couples to work with. We got to work together previously at a Malibu Creek State Park engagement session, so we were very comfortable with each other going in. Our team arrived early, starting off the day with detail shots such as wedding dress, rings, wedding invitations, etc. These photography details are so important when documenting a wedding and look great for your blog.
When the wedding party arrived we started with photos of the bride in the bridal suite. The women poured some champagne to loosen the nerves and got to relax before starting to put on the dress. The groomsmen did the complete opposite and poured some whiskey while playing pool. This groomsmen suite was probably one of the manliest rooms out of any wedding venue I have photographed at. The photos turned out great!
Wedding guests arrived at the site really early, so we had to hide the wedding party. The ceremony location is one of the dreamiest places to photographs. Watching the bride walk down the steps with her veil spread out is a breathtaking sight. We did not do a first look, so the groom’s first time seeing her was a memorable moment for him. The ceremony was beautiful and left all the guests in awe.
This venue is so great because there are so many locations to choose from for the photographer. Any place you go will result in a great photo. Out of all the weddings I shot this year, this couple’s wedding photos were my favorite. The reception showed a lot of love, energy, and fun. The dancing shots, pizza eating, and groomsmen doing a piggyback with the groom made this one of the best weddings in the year. Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your wedding!
