There are so many wonderful places to create photographs on this property it is like you will get your own styled wedding shoot on the big day.

Popular Photography Spots

The big yellow frame is one of my favorite spots at Saddlerock Ranch to put the bride, groom or whole bridal party in, on, and around. It is a little precarious getting a bride past the wall of shrubs, and up onto the giant frame, but well worth the challenge when you can make a photograph like this. I love to shoot this spot around mid-day so we can get the big blue sky that compliments the bright yellow frame.
