OMG is all I can say about this Temecula wedding. It was so much fun to photograph. When Jamie and Brett told me about their Longshadow Ranch Winery Wedding and all of the country and DIY details, I just had to be a part of their day. Everything about this rustic, ranch wedding was perfect. The girls in their pink dresses with cowboy boots, and the guys in jeans and boots made for the perfect look for a country wedding.

I knew with all of the Do it Yourself details that Jamie was planning that I would need my amazing team of photographer’s with me at Longshadow Ranch Winery. I like to always go above and beyond for my clients so bringing 2 extra photographer’s along for the day was a big surprise and treat for my clients. Mark, Morgan, Robby and I rocked this wedding.

We started the day with getting ready photos at Pechanga. It was nice to get to spend some time with both the bride and groom before the wedding.

Next we headed over to Longshadow Ranch Winery. We were greeted by beautiful horses, gorgeous landscapes, and the vines were just startting to bloom.

Jamie and Brett chose to do a First Look before the wedding ceremony. The wedding party and family and friends sat in the distance as Jamie and Brett saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
We used the porch of Longshadow Ranch as the first look spot and it was perfect.

Their ceremony was on the back lawn of the ranch and it was breathtaking. We had gorgeous light for the wedding party photos and romantics. While Mark, Morgan and I walked around the ranch property with the bride and groom. Robby was rocking the Do it Yourself Photo Booth that the Groom’s Dad had made. It was the coolest photo wall I have ever seen. What a great idea.

The reception was filled with homemade napkin holders, a sweet table that was over flowing with goodies, rustic DIY centerpieces and so much more. It really was the perfect day.

Sam from Longshadow Ranch Winery was amazing to work with. She helped us with everything we needed and even came along with use during the romantic photos to help with the bride. So thoughtful and appreciated!

Braven Carver and his team did an amazing job telling the story through video and I cannot wait to see their film they make for Jamie and Brett.

The rustic Chuppah was made by Happy Chuppah

The beautiful florals were by MFG Floral, the sweet treats were by Tasha, Hair and Make up by Tammy Greenwood.


This was the perfect Temecula wedding. I wish Jamie and Brett so much love and the happiest marriage. Enjoy this peak into their special day.
