Beautiful Wedding At Rancho Los Cerritos

“Hope guides me. It gets me through the day and especially the night. The hope that after you leave my sight it will not be the last time I look upon you.”

A Wedding At Rancho Los Cerritos

Earlier this year I was invited to be the videographer for this lovely couple, Zac & Kirra; a couple from my backyard right here in beautiful Southern California.

What’s not to love about a wedding of close friends and family who have strong roots in Long Beach, CA? The venue is perfect, the weather is sunny, the food is delicious, and at this wedding at Rancho Los Cerritos the guests were all in a wonderful joyous spirit as this was an event for a lifetime, the combining of multiple families having generations of history between them.

The venue has been a part of Kirra’s family history and ties in Long Beach for nearly 200 hundred years. The site is home to an old tree that has stood witness to several generations of the Bixby family. What a beautiful sentiment, really.

Thank you, Theresa

The opportunity to shoot this special occasion came through a short network I’m currently being plugged into. I was contacted by Blair Cohen, who serves on the board for Care Closet, a non-profit I work with and provide video coverage for. He asked me to send Theresa an email, offering my services for her eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding, so I did. Did I expect a response? Probably not, but I’m very glad she eventually reached back.

Thank you, Theresa, without you none of this would’ve been an opportunity for me. 

I hope you love the work and hope someday we can work together again.

Zac & Kirra

Your vibe was calming, spiritual, warm, and impassioned! It was incredible to experience the love that was shown between you two. Seasoned is how I’d explain it. Well Experienced is another. Your connection was not only emotional but also physical – lots of hugs, hand-holding, dancing together, and eating together. Having to document you two, I could see that it was a breeze getting through this one-of-a-kind day, because the chemistry is seasoned, well experienced, and tested on many seas. Perfect.

Thanks for the personal invitation to your after-party. Felt good to be invited by the cool kids 😉

Best wishes, you two.

What an honor it was to film at the Rancho Los Cerritos, to film these Two who are now One.

Hello, and welcome to my site. My name is Ricky and I am a full-time creative. I shoot wedding films, do photography, build websites, and all other kinds of creative stuff but weddings are by far my favorite bits to work. I am from Los Angeles and currently reside in Orange County, CA with my wife, Deelisa, and our beautiful daughter, Elia.

Ricky was the best surprise videographer hand-picked by our incredible photographer. We never met him nor did we tell him what we wanted or needed in our video. Truly, we didn’t know how good of hands we were in until we saw the 30 second teaser and I was in a puddle of tears of utter happiness.
To be able to tell a story that evokes such strong emotion in a wedding video is a gift. Most wedding videos are sweet and beautiful but Ricky’s video captured personal moments with sentimentality that is rare to find.
The video was never cheesy, never flashy, never wannabe “Vogue”, swoopy, nor trying to be too artsy or trendy. Also, I’m so glad my voice was not on that video and I’m so relieved Ricky took that risk to go a little off the usual script and was able to tell a compelling story.

Thank you Ricky for your editing and story-telling magic and professionalism.
Anyone interested in hiring this man, do not hesitate. Book him now! You won’t be disappointed.
