Santa Fe River Ranch Alachua Florida

If you live in Alachua Florida there is a high chance you have heard of, or visited, Santa Fe River Ranch. They have two stunning properties that serve as wedding venues: The Ranch and Valley View. All in all, this gorgeous property encompasses 2,000+ acres.

Chiefly, one of the main draws of these stunning venues is the lifetime access for the couples. The owners of the ranch generously offer their property to past clients for photos… FOR LIFE.

When Erika said it was time for family photos we knew exactly where we were heading! At the same time we both screamed SFRR. The stunning open fields, glowing giant oak trees and beautiful sunlight were the perfect back drop.

Santa Fe River Ranch Alachua Florida is the perfect backdrop for your family, maternity, engagement and wedding photos!

Even more, this property can be the setting to watch your family grow. Indeed seeing Erika and Kyle’s wedding photos on their wall next to these stunning family photos is so heartwarming.

When you are planning your family photos its important to know a few things:

  1. Coordinate, don’t match! This stunning family chose a denim and pink color palatte. By mixing textures and patterns they were able to add depth and interest to their photos. And they look AMAZING!
  2. Consider the use. Are you using these photos for your home? For seasonal cards? Just for fun. Knowing the use of these photos will help you choose your location and your outfits wisely.
  3. Melt downs happen… and that’s okay! With me, family sessions are a go-at-your-pace experience. Not everyone will smile in the first try! But by making the experience fun, and stopping for goldfish breaks, we are sure to get photos that are beautiful and full of personality.
