McCormick Home Ranch Wedding - Camarillo, CA: Stephanie + Rudy


A couple of weeks ago, I got to photograph Stephanie and Rudy’s magical McCormick Home Ranch wedding in Camarillo, California. Being able to be a part of their big day was especially meaningful to me, because I have known Stephanie, the beautiful bride, for most of my life! She and Rudy are high school sweethearts, who have two ridiculously adorable sons together, so their wedding day was certainly filled with tons of emotion and no shortage of fun! Stephanie’s mom, Karen, designed and put together the entire event - from a mariachi band, to custom mason jars, a photo booth, a bucket filled with flip-flops for dancing, and a beautiful sparkler send-off, there was no detail left behind! You’d never know it, but this was her first gig as a wedding planner… I think she definitely has a new career ahead of her!

To the new Mr. & Mrs. Ruiz, congratulations!!! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness together. Thank you for letting me capture your first day as husband and wife!

I was obsessed with Steph's dress. I always love lace!

Young love at it's finest! I later found out that they were cousins, whoops!

I always love to do first glance with the father of the Bride - the moment the father sees his little girl, is always something special.
