Scottie and I (Breanna) have been photographers for quite awhile now.
…..and yet there was one type of photo shoot we’d never done and didn’t even know existed for that matter….
…animal head shots! So imagine our surprise when Lisa & Bob called us up to do that very thing!
Let me give you a little more background here! Lisa and Bob own one of our all time favorite wedding venues to shoot at…. The Condor’s Nest Ranch, in Pala, California. If you don’t believe me that it’s one of the best wedding venues around, here are some of our photos from weddings there to help prove it.
It’s this amazing ranch up in the mountains that is complete with Lisa and Bob’s amazing vintage collection of just about everything you could want, not to mention a gorgeous green house, old cars, a beautiful barn, and of course… the animals who live there!
So when it came time for Lisa and Bob to get some new family photos done they called us up and then mentioned, “oh yeah, and we’d really love some head shots of the animals if you don’t mind… and we promise we won’t make you do chickens!”
(No, she didn’t lie, there aren’t any official chicken head shots we had to do!)
So we were like, “Um, OK I guess we can do animal head shots?” Well it turns out that we could do it and I must say, Scottie was particularly talented at it!
Of course it helped that we both made a new BFF!
(That was literally the only way Scottie could shoot as long as his new bestie was hanging around… which was always!)
Lisa’s little friend was more on the subtle side… except for when he gave kisses!
But then again that MIGHT have just been a permanent condition!
Besides getting animal head shots, we also got some great photos of Lisa loving their property and all that it has to offer, as well as a few of Lisa and Bob enjoying it together (once he was done with multiple property tours that day since everyone and their mother wants to get married there!).
I could go on and on about how amazing The Condor’s Nest Ranch is, but I think it’s better if I let these pictures and the ones from the weddings we’ve shot there do the talking!
Lisa and Bob, Congratulations on creating one of the best wedding venues in Southern California and for being so amazing to work with that we can’t get enough of being a part of weddings with you!
Thanks for providing us with some of the most amazing photos of our career…. and now that we’ve done the animal head shots, with some of the most UNIQUE photos of our career!
We’ve loved spending time with the two of you, your staff, your many pets, and of course with your gorgeous patio view! Thanks for giving us the kind of chill, gorgeous, unique, fun, and all round perfect places to spend so much of our time at! We hope to see you there many more times in the coming years!
