Cassidy and Russell wanted some beautiful pictures done in California for their Agoura wedding portraits. Only a week prior, they were married in Utah before making the trip down for their reception. In addition, Cassidy’s family lives in Southern California. So we met up with these two before their open house reception to take some shots in the open fields hidden in the hills. You could forget your rock and roll, it was all country side. What was there not to love between the fields of gold and flower crown?
We decided to find these wonderful oak trees hidden in the back trails to get the perfect scenery for these Old Agoura wedding portraits. In addition, you cannot see the trails from the main road. The locals consider this a hidden gem. It was a perfectly sunny day in California with some gorgeous lighting. The California light peeked through the trees while it was setting behind the hills. The setting was a fantastic backdrop that really made Cassidy’s bouquet of red and yellow flowers pop.
Agoura Wedding Portraits in the Heart of Old Agoura
Cassidy is all about family, so when it came to her big day her sisters were right by her side ready to lend a helping hand. They did Cassidy’s hair and makeup by adding in a braid to compliment her flower crown and giving her makeup a more natural look that truly made this bride glow.
Real moments are always the ones that end up being our favorites. Nothing posed, just two people that love each other being who they are. As you can see, posing can never beat real emotion of a bride and groom.
Sometimes it requires a little extra work by our amazing couples to get the shots we are looking for. There are a million thistles in the fields of Old Agoura. While pretty, these thistles get into everything. Everyone had quite a few in their clothing by the end, but it was worth it.
