Annie and Tommy have the coolest jobs ever. They own and run a wedding venue property in Malibu! And the coolest part of it all (in our opinion), they actually LIVE on this amazing property! Their venue is called Brookview Ranch, and we were able to do our full portrait session with them on different areas of the property.
What you can’t tell from the photos is that their property was threatened and damaged by the Woosley fire last fall. They lost a few structures as well as some landscaping, forcing them to shut down for this year while they repair the damages. But what is even more amazing is that they were evacuated from their home just a few weeks before Harper’s due date! So not only were they having to pack up all their valuables and memories, unsure if they would lose their home, property, and livelihoods, but they were also unsure if they would ever be able to use the nursery they had prepared for their baby girl. By God’s grace, their home was spared and they were able to move back onto their property and get their electricity, heat, and water hooked back up just days before meeting baby Harper.
4-month-old Harper made our job a breeze! She continued to smile and laugh for the camera, and loved hanging out with Beau while I grabbed a few photos of her parents. Isn’t she just precious in these photos?!
Annie and Tommy, thank you for allowing us to capture your joy with your sweet baby girl, as well as the beauty of your incredible ranch! You are both examples to us of persevering and maintaining faith through trials and tribulation, and we are so excited to see all the weddings you will host on your property in the coming years.
