Chelsea & Mathew ~ Autumn Wedding at Flying Caballos Ranch

Chelsea & Mathew ~ Autumn Wedding at Flying Caballos Ranch

Hey guys, James here! Now that Chelsea & Mathew celebrated their autumn wedding like royalty at the quaint yet elegant Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo, I’ve decided that it’s high time for my annual blog post. Not really though, I just suck at keeping up with blog posts and tend to focus more on my photography itself. I digress!

These two lovebirds were incredible to work with on what has been a beautiful year-long journey to their wedding. We first met at their friend’s wedding that I was working last year, and once they saw their friend’s wedding photos they made the wise decision to book me ASAP. 😉 We soon met up again for a gorgeous engagement session up in San Francisco, where they showed me some cool local spots and treated me to my first authentic Korean restaurant experience! Then a few months & a pandemic later, we were finally reunited for their intimate, COVID-conscious wedding this fall, where all guests were tested beforehand to keep things safe enough to party. The result? Well, see for yourself! 🙂

Special shout-out to Laura Noele Photo for helping out on these photos, and Zach Ayers for his mad videography skills!

About the Author:

James Lester is a bit of a legend on Instagram ~ it was this reputation that initially caught our eye at SLOtography…that, and his incredible images! After a little time spent with James, you’ll find that this guy’s photos are just a sample of the excellence that is 'J Lest,' his gangsta rap alter-ego (not really). Coming up on the Central Coast, James has been captivated by the world's natural beauty from a young age, but it wasn't until he picked up a camera in 2015 that he did anything besides appreciate what his eyes presented him. Fast forward to today, and James has spent the past three years honing his craft: capturing magnificent landscapes & dozens of weddings, both as part of the team & solo. His talent & passion for photography continue to grow and we like that! Aside from taking photos, you can find James maintaining his musical chops, climbing rocks (usually fake ones in the gym), practicing yoga (keyword: practicing). & eating vegan food. Yeah, he's one of THOSE weirdos. You can get in touch directly with :)
