A Carmel Valley wedding is magical. The glowy light, stunning oak trees, sounds of the Carmel River, and the absolutely perfect weather. To capture a Gardener Ranch wedding nestled in the Carmel Valley hills, this 24-acre venue is a favorite! With its guest accommodations on site, weddings become an entire weekend event. The property offers a rustic charm in a beautiful natural setting, with spacious lawns and indoor spaces perfect for wedding ceremonies and receptions. You’ll never want to leave!
We arrived to Bailey and Evan’s wedding to the sounds of celebration. The ladies tucked away in the bridal suite, the clicking of champagne glasses and laughter. The guys playing cards and enjoying adult beverages, while getting fresh shaves and trims. We immediatly knew this was going to be a memorable day!
The day started with dress reviel with the bridemaids, a very sintamenal father-daughter first look, but the moment Evan laid eyes on his beautiful bride, there wasn’t a dry eye in sight. The emotion was unreal and all you could feel is the connection these two had for one another and we couldn’t wait to capture it!
A beautiful ceremony as the sun set behind the hills, portraits thoughout the goregous gardens, a cocktail hour surrounding the pool, and a lavish reception. This Gardener Ranch wedding was perfection!

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!
