Kara and Seth’s Wedding, Los Olivos CA

Kara and Seth put together an incredible barn wedding – one barn for cocktail hour, the other for the reception. They were married in a small grove of trees on Seth’s parents’ ranch. You might recognize the T-Rex in the first photo if you’ve ever driven between Santa Maria and Santa Barbara.:)

The band, Impact, was an amazing cover band. Every single song they performed sounded like the original. This was also my last wedding of the “season” – a stretch that saw weddings every weekend since mid-August. It was a great one to end on – a heartfelt, fun, absolutely beautiful event on an amazing ranch under a very starry sky.

Brooke Stevens-Patrick -

Ken, This has brought tears to my eyes. I don't think I have every seen such beauty in such a rustic place. The barn was so gorgeous and you have captured the very essence of this wedding! I'm sure they are just blessed! BRAVO!

danielle -

LOVE the ones of her upside down, the guys chatting in the barn (b&w) Kara, laughing (probably snorting, I can say that im her friend ha ha) and smiling so big. Seth's picture is awesome! Love how you always find the light and make these pictures like still movies, each telling something grand! She loves them, and I know why! :)

Sarah Hawkins -

Ken – your pics are so gorgeous! They make me want to get married all over again (to the same guy, of course!)

Kevin Ford -

What a beautiful wedding and amazing location, perfect for fall. What a special day. The size of the wedding party helped to keep things intimate I am sure and then the barns for the reception and cocktail hour, wow. Great job capturing their wedding day, I hope that you can soon find some rest.

BridalHood -

Wow – this wedding is amazing. I might even have to post some of your pictures on my blog to share this awesome rustic barn wedding. Great job with these shots – you can really tell you captured the essence of the day.

Susan Patton -

Ken, WOW. Your work stopped me in my tracks…absolutely stunning. What a wonderful job you did of capturing the joy that these two obviously share. You have a true gift. Thanks for sharing it!

geneoh -

Ken! this wedding is awesome! I'm pretty sure it's my favorite you've done

Poser -

Dude, you did an awesome job.
They are loving you.

:P

Mara -

wow this is a gorgeous wedding!! And the pictures are just phenomenal! Do you know how they found out about this private estate? I’m planning a California wedding and would love to use a barn but am at a loss of where to look. I’d so appreciate it if you knew :) Thanks!

San Luis Obispo Barn Wedding -

[…] Cameron and Sean were married at Cameron’s parents’ ranch in Los Alamos. If ever I were to call a place magical, this is it. It’s a gorgeous ranch set in a pristine valley, and every detail of the entire place was meticulously planned and executed. I first shot here back on 2009 at Kara and Seth’s wedding. […]

Nena wise -

Could you possibly find out the size of the bred barn for me? I am building a wedding venue on my property in Texas and this is exactly the barn we have designed but with windows on short sides in middle. I just saw this from my son who is also a wedding photographer and wanted my roof to have this same pitch. Thanks, you are an amazing photographer I’m sure your mom is proud!
