Spanish Hills Wedding Photography, Ventura County | Rachel & Liam

A high school romance that blossomed into a life-long journey is not something that all of us get to experience.  But for Rachel, she found her true love at the age of 14!  And ever since then, their lives intertwined and is filled with so much joy, love, and adventures!!  And speaking of adventures, these two love-birds share a passion for traveling and have traveled the world together!!  When we were over at their place, they have a map of the world, and it was filled with pins representing all the places they’ve been to… together!  In fact, Gavin and I are so inspired by their travels that we hope to do the same one day.  (We even bought a map of the world and started pinning!! Hahaha!!).  So read on for our day of Spanish Hills wedding photography in Camarillo, Ventura County.

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rachel’s family.  Last year, Gavin and I had the pleasure of working with Jess & Dan (Rachel’s sister & now bro-in-law) and doing wedding photography in Semi-Valley.  It was an honor when Rachel and Liam contacted us to capture their day (as well).  And of course… we were delighted to see and work with their family again!!

Don’t forget to check out their wedding video by yours truly… Gavin Holt!! 😉

Wedding Preparation at the Hampton Inn

Our bride and groom got ready at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Camarillo, which is less than a couple miles away from the Spanish Hills Country Club. This made it an ideal staging point for the wedding preparation.

First Look at Spanish Hills Country Club

Rachel and Liam decided to do a first look.  But instead of Liam facing away, they decided to face each other as Rachel walks down the empty aisle towards her awaiting groom!!  This was great because Liam got to see Rachel’s initial reaction as well.  So romantic!!
