Cielo Farms, with its private, exclusive, and mostly inclusive atmosphere, is undeniably one of our favorite venues. Who wouldn’t love capturing moments against a backdrop of stunning vistas and a Mediterranean climate? It provides an unobstructed canvas to shoot our couples with a cinematic approach, steering clear of the overly shot areas that often saturate wedding photography. We understand the importance of a venue’s schedule. What sets this location apart is its commitment to ensuring a seamless wedding experience. With its inherent beauty and versatility, we’re provided many options to really produce an exceptional gallery.
