Getting hitched alpaca style
When people come to visit our alpacas many of them get “smitten with the cute faces” or “can’t believe how clean they are” or comment “yours are so friendly”, Ashley fell in love with our surroundings! Yes, Ashley Williams, who is a fantastic professional wedding photographer in San Diego, wanted to do a bridal shoot in our backyard. She desired to use captivating alpacas, the native plants and the earth beneath their feet.
Two days before the planned shoot, we experienced heavy rains, cold temperatures and lots of fog. However, on March 9 the skies cleared, the grounds dried up and the alpacas fiber glistened in the sun, so we decided to go through with the staged wedding shoot. Ashley and a host of other professionals that accompanied her spent several hours getting just the perfect shots. And for the most part… the alpacas cooperated wearing their floral leas, bowties and standing patiently in front of the bride and groom.
