Wonder Valley Ranch is a beautiful Fresno wedding venue!

Chris & Marlaena got married at Wonder Valley Ranch Resort on September 7, 2018. Their wedding day was not only filled with beautiful moments, but so much love! Their family and friends shared sweet stories about how much they’ve grown since kids on the soccer field. It was so fun hearing about their lives and how their love had grown so much over the years. All those moments lead to this day; their wedding day!

One of my favorite parts of any wedding day is the first look. Every groom has a different reaction; some shed tears, others just want to hug their brides and never let go. Chris was both and it was a beautiful moment to witness. And for the rest of the day all he wanted to do was look at Marlaena, twirl her around and tell her how beautiful she is. Those are the moments I live for.

On your wedding day, don’t forget to escape at sunset. Especially if you have a gorgeous wedding venue like this one. My job is to capture the beauty of your day, and a few minutes at sunset for romantic portraits can make all the difference in beautiful wedding photos.

Thank you so much to Chris & Marlaena for choosing me to capture your wedding day. It was an honor capturing all the love, the fun and joy between you both and your families. Marlaena even left me a review on The Knot!

“There isn’t possibly enough words to describe how passionate and professional this woman is about photography! She clearly has a love for capturing breathtaking moments, and throughout my whole experience from beginning to end, Megan has worked with me, was on top of everything the day of, and was so nice and professional. It was so hot on my wedding day, yet she still tried her hardest to make ALL of our shots look the best ever. Not only is she an amazingly talented photographer, with her crisp, yet warm style, but she is also a really positive, genuine person, and a real lucky charm to have around on your wedding day! My husband was really really nervous before our first look and Megan completely changed that with her warm personality. If you are looking for great photos and an even better photographer experience, look no further than Megan Helm Photography!”

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Farner!
