West 12 Ranch Wedding | Jennefer + Mariano

September 7, 2023


We’re loving this West 12 Ranch Wedding session for our sweet couple’s anniversary photos.

Your wedding day is undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime event, a day filled with memories to cherish forever. Most people hold dear the timeless wedding photos that capture the essence of that special day. For Jennefer and Mariano, however, their love story had an unexpected twist. One that led them to value something a little more unique.

Jennefer and Mariano embarked on their journey as a married couple last year. Although we weren’t their original wedding photographers. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to create additional couple portraits and family photos. Celebrating their One Year Wedding Anniversary.

Their wedding week began with a challenging situation as Jennefer’s father had to undergo surgery. Which cause him to miss their big day. However, the good news is that he is now on the path to recovery. And we were honored to recreate these precious moments for Jennefer and Mariano in their original wedding attire.

Originally, our plan was to return to the picturesque Hanford Ranch, a venue we hold dear. However, with several logistical considerations. The couple decided that West 12 Ranch would be the perfect setting for this special occasion.

Leading up to their anniversary session, the weather had been somewhat gloomy and overcast all week. But just a few hours before the scheduled session time, the skies cleared, and the radiant sun emerged. Casting a warm and beautiful glow over the day.

As we spent time with Jennefer, Mariano, and their loving family. We couldn’t help but feel the joy and warmth that enveloped the entire gathering. It was a day filled with laughter, love, and cherished moments.

We feel incredibly grateful to have been a part of this unique celebration. Capturing the enduring love between Jennefer and Mariano as they marked their first year as husband and wife. It’s a reminder that even when life throws unexpected challenges our way, love and happiness can shine through. Just like the sun breaking through the clouds on a perfect day.
