A Carmel Valley wedding. Occasionally there are those weddings that leave our hearts aching for more! So much thought goes into the bridal details, the couple uses the timeline we create, they do a first look, nearly everything is outdoors during daylight, and chose their vendors using our preferred vendor list. Oh my word, that was this wedding! Everywhere we turned we held our hand to our chests, gasping at the gorgeousness of the day unfolding. Bella Belle shoes, Seascape Flowers (who always brings us the most amazing sprays for morning details), extra time for couples and bridal party portraits (all before the ceremony), live music to dance the night away, and Eileen of E Events orchestrating the entire day. This is what we call perfection!
We arrived to the girls of MUAH Makeup and Hair getting everyone ready, as laughter and excitement filled the room. We celebrated and popped champagne, toasting to new beginnings. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm, and the venue covered by the large oak trees that sheltered us from the heat. It had rained the night before, so the ground was saturated, as we waited for the sun to dry things out. They were just about to have to change the ceremony from the venue lawn, when the sun warmed and dried everything, making the brides dream come true!
Congratulations Harmony and Alex! We couldn’t have been more excited to celebrate with you!

MEET LAURA & RACHEL
Together, we have worked in the wedding industry for over a decade, and make up one incredibly unique mother-daughter fine art wedding photography team. We have documented weddings from the breathtaking West Coast, to the historic East, and have had our work published internationally both in print and online. Our wanderlust hearts have taken us all over the country, capturing love stories, and visiting quaint hometown coffee shops along the way, and even though we've spent most of our lives in a nautical California town, we now call South Carolina home, expanding to the low country of Charleston. We are photographers, directors, curators, and most of all, storytellers for your wedding.
And WE can't wait to get to know you!
This is absolutely gorgeous. I love everything about this from the gardens to the lighting to the details.
Wow – obsessed with all the gorgeous details, especially that bouquet! Absolutely beautiful wedding and photography!
