Private Estate | Ojai Wedding

Emily and Nathan first met while attending Berkeley. They immediately bonded over their mutual love of music and found each other as members of the Jewish A Capella choir group. I first met them for their engagement photos the year before, which we took at Torrey Pines National Park in San Diego. They got married at Emily’s family home in Ojai, California. The ladies got ready at her home while the guys got ready at the Ojai Valley Inn, conveniently located right across the street! Once Emily was ready, we went over to the Inn for her first look with Nathan. The moment was filled with joy and excitement.

After the first look, the couple decided to take portraits at the Inn, as well as Emily’s home. Emily’s backyard is filled with stunning Oak trees as well as a little vineyard, so it was a great spot to strike a pose! The short ceremony was held at the Jewish Community Center in Ojai, followed by another photo session with their getaway car, a vintage mustang owned by Emily’s father! We found the perfect spot for these photos down a secluded street just around the corner. The twinkling lights overhead really set the mood for their reception and their guests quickly joined in on the dance floor after the first dance. Emily and Nathan are such a happy and fun couple, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them!
