Matilija Poppy Field Ojai Engagement Photography: Kate + Danny
Kate + Danny wanted to shoot in the Ojai Valley and asked me to find a location with beautiful views of the mountains. Picking the exact spot for them enabled me to find the prettiest light in some olive groves and a stunning patch of Matilija Poppies! Knowing the poppies were in bloom, I went on the hunt for a small field we could shoot in. After driving around for three hours and almost giving up the hunt, I ended up finding this magical spot with both poppies AND mountains! I can't wait for their ranch wedding in Ventura this fall, even though we can't bring the poppies with us, I'm sure it'll be a beautiful day!
