Once you see it, it's obvious why so many brides and grooms choose to be married and photographed there! Each venue within Calamigos ranch has gorgeous gardens, as well as indoor and outdoor reception and ceremony sites. The bridal suites that Calamigos Ranch offers are a gorgeous place to start photographing at the beginning of the wedding day when the bride is getting ready and having fun with her bridal party. This particular summer wedding at Calamigos Ranch was so much fun to photograph. The bride and groom decided to do a first look before the ceremony, which allowed me to photograph the special moment between the couple when the groom saw his bride for the first time. Many brides are worried that by doing a first look, they will ruin the surprise when she walks down the aisle, but let me assure you that this groom cried when he first saw his bride, and again when she walked down the aisle. I was able to capture the moment right before this bride surprised her groom, and he saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. I wanted to capture this couple's fun personalities, as well as the joy and excitement they were feeling on their wedding day. I was able to shoot through the moment to capture every part of this couple's first look, and share with them the special momentsKeywords: calamigos ranch wedding (15), garden wedding venues los angeles (15), malibu wedding photo (63), malibu wedding veunes (63), wedding photos (63). 1/200; f/3.5; ISO 500; 85.0 mm.
