Wedding photos at Maravilla Gardens:

I had the pleasure of meeting wonderful couple J and R just before their e-session in Downtown Los Angeles. After capturing some urban styled shots there, we had done a sunset shoot at the Trump National Golf Club. They had been such an easy going couple and I was looking forward to reconnecting with them again as their Camarillo wedding photographer to capture this wedding at Maravilla Gardens.

Getting ready photos at the Courtyard Camarillo:

The day all started at the Courtyard Camarillo where they were getting ready. While my wife Charlene was with R as my second photographer, I was with J and her bridesmaids as they did their hair and make-up. I took some candid shots as they made their final preparations, sharing in this special moment, and had time to capture a few portraits of J by herself once she was in her gorgeous gown.

Ceremony photos at the Maravilla Gardens:

We then headed over to the beautiful Maravilla Gardens where the wedding ceremony was to be held. It was an outdoor occasion on the lawns, which was not only a relaxed backdrop for J and R to exchange vows, but the grass really made the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses pop.

Portraits at the Maravilla Gardens:

After becoming husband and wife beneath their stunning floral arch, we had time for a Maravilla Gardens wedding photo session around this beautiful venue. We utilized a wooden swing for a playful shot of the couple kissing, as well as staged a few photos on the ceremonial lawns themselves. I also wanted to incorporate R’s daughter into the shoot and document the union of this new family.

Reception photos at the Maravilla Gardens:

R carried J into their wedding reception, held outdoors at the Maravilla Gardens, with the early evening slowly turning into dusk before romantic fairy lights were lit above.
