Spring Ranch Barn is a wonderful place to spend the weekend celebrating your wedding. Between the grand victorian which houses at least 12 people (maybe more if you get real cozy 😉 and the guest loft (where my bride’s always get ready & where the couple stays) AND the wedding barn (where all the partying happens!) you’ve basically come to the best all inclusive location in the Mendocino area! When I get an email or phone call from a potential client who just so happens to be using SRB as their venue this girl does a happy dance (literally and figuratively speaking!).
So when Peter and Laura gave me a call and let me know this was their venue and I had their wedding day open, I JUMPED at the opportunity to be their wedding photographer. I have a solid eight years in now and it’s very easy for me to say I know exactly who my ‘ideal’ clients are – They value photography, they know good professional wedding photography is not going to be cheap and they trust the professionals to do their job without needing to micromanage their every move. Aesthetics of the day is important to them, it just isn’t something thrown together without thought or meaning or because they saw it on Pinterest. Love between the couple is foremost the MOST important feature in my ideal client (hence why I shoot so many elopements and very few big weddings anymore). And with that said, Peter & Laura were truly my ideal clients. Yay!!
A few weeks later and the three of us are knee deep in planning out the timeline, knowing what is important to them (yes, Peter’s mama teaching two-stepping to the group is #1 on his list!) and what isn’t (a cake didn’t make the ‘cut’ but ice cream did!) …
The day was fantastic and even with all the changes that were made, there were smiles to the end 🙂
Thank you Pete & Laura for having faith in me, including me in all the special moments of your rehearsal & wedding and being oh so patient for the images to hit your mailbox. You two are wonderfully sweet people and I’m still over the moon happy to have been the wedding photographer you hired to photograph such a milestone in your lives .
