Ben Lomond Redwood Wedding | Christy and Matt Married

Saturday, December 26, 2015


Christy and Matt are two INCREDIBLE people!!! Not only do they have the biggest hearts, but they are so much fun to be around! I knew from C+M's engagement session (if you haven't seen if before, definitely go check it out) that being a part of their wedding day was going to be magical...and it definitely was! When you have your first look in a Redwood grove, I think its safe to say that the rest of the day will be pretty amazing! When talking with Christy about details of their day, I loved that she let the professionals go wild with their vision. I remember her telling me they would have family style picnic tables, and that Farmgirl Flowers was given the reins to do whatever they wanted with the florals as long as they were colorful! Ahh, how refreshing!
The stunning scenery, this incredibly in love couple, the amazing amounts of love that flowed throughout the day are so evident in these images. I'm tickled that I not only was asked to document their big day, but that I was able to witness these two coming together as one in front of their closest friends and family. It truly was a beautiful experience!
To Christy and Matt, I'm so honored to have captured your big day! You two are so wonderful!


Squaw Valley Lake Tahoe Wedding | Kat & Neil Wedding

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Private property wedding by the river in Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe. Bride and Groom Photo - Bride wearing a long white flowy, jersey dress and flower crown. Groom wearing a navy suit; couple is surrounded by trees with the golden sun peaking through the trees.

Kat & Neil's big day...lets just say, this is a day as a wedding photographer that you take with you. K+N had a day that honestly brought me back to why I do this as my sole job/career not only on their wedding day, but also revisiting it now, blogging it. As a wedding photographer, there are times when you get in ruts, times when it's hard to see with fresh eyes, and you go through the motions. This day never had an ounce of that. Maybe it was because it was in a new and vibrant location, Lake Tahoe. Maybe it was because I had Rob with me on a small vacation and we spent the day before and after exploring the incredible scenery. Or maybe it was that there were so many genuine and loving hands that made this day everything that it became; hands gathering flowers hundreds of miles away; hands of friends preparing and making food that was to nourish and liven their taste buds; hands that really and truly made this day more magical than can be put into words.

Its hard for me to put a finger on why this wedding revived me and really made me fall more in love with my passion; but one thing I can't negate is the fact that it happened and I'm beyond honored that Kat & Neil trusted me to capture this amazing day in their lives!
