Wolf Lakes Park is an amazing Fresno wedding venue.
Sara and Ryan were married on March 20, 2021 at Wolf Lakes Park. Their family and friends gathered to celebrate this special union and MHP was honored to be a part of photographing their wedding day. 2021 has brought a massive flow of couples into the wedding industry looking to get married after basically an entire year without weddings. So when Sara reached out to me right before the end of 2020 for a March wedding, I was like HECK YES GIRL!
Ryan proposed to Sara on Christmas Tree Lane and Sara was on top of wedding planning from the get go! About a week later they had a venue and a date and she reached out to book me as her photographer. While on our consult call, her dad asked me what brand of camera I used and thankfully I had the right answer 😉 It was such a great call and Sara and I were both crying by the end of it. I think we all knew that we were a perfect fit to work together for their upcoming wedding.
And in case you’re reading this and wondering what my answer was…I shoot Canon ha ha!
I loved getting to hear the story of how they met during the ceremony and toast speeches at Wolf Lakes.
Of course Sara had told me, but it was so much funnier to hear it from their family and friends. I remember Sara’s mom describing at the reception how Sara had told them she met this guy online, and I know firsthand that the concept of meeting online doesn’t always go over well with the parents. And her mom was relieved when Sara said that Ryan lived in Japan!! Little did they know he’d be moving back to the states and they’d get the chance to go on a “real date”. The rest is a love story!
Sunset wedding portraits are some of my favorite things to photograph!
I also shot a bit of film on their wedding day! Above are a couple of my favorite sunset film photos! I just love how the light catches the film and gives that golden glow to their wedding photos.
