I am still on cloud nine after shooting Taylor & Chase’s summer wedding at La Cuesta Ranch. This amazing property sits on 1,400 acres in the hills of San Luis Obispo and is gorgeous all year round. Since they were moving across the country, buying a home, and graduating from the Air Force Academy. Many of the details were finalized by the mother of the bride and mother of the groom, and it couldn’t have come together more perfectly. Soft pinks, blues, succulents, and greenery made for the perfect decorations against the rustic backdrop this venue provides.

Taylor and Chase started the day with a first look!! It was a precious and quiet moment. And as soon as they saw each other for the first time, they did not leave each other’s side all night long!! You know those extra adorable couples who just love each other so much and can’t get enough of each other?? Well, that is Taylor and Chase in a nutshell. Such sweet and genuine love for one another and for their families made for a wonderful event!
