San Francisco is a very special place for Dylan + Cailey. The two of them began a tradition in 2015 of visiting San Francisco every year to attend the Outside Lands Music Festival. Over the years, their annual trip grew to include dozens of their closest friends. The music festival soon became an event that they would all look forward to each year — an entire weekend of music, dancing, and friends that just gets better every year. Each of their parents also had important moments in the city, making San Francisco an extremely special place in Dylan + Cailey’s hearts. So, when they made the announcement to their bridal party that they were flying to celebrate their bachelor and bachelorette parties in San Francisco, no one was surprised. However, they were soon to be very surprised to find out that they were in San Francisco for a little more than a party.
Karla + Gilbert’s Jamaican elopement was absolutely GORGEOUS! Their wedding took place at the Secrets Wild Orchid resort, a luxurious property located in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The sprawling outdoor space at this sophisticated, oceanfront resort had numerous spectacular photo backdrops.
I have a special connection to Taime + Hannah’s love story. A little over a year ago, I took maternity photos for them and then I asked them to model for a bridal shoot. They said, “Yes!,” then Hannah said, “Yes!” the same day. Taime messaged me the morning of the bridal shoot to tell me he was going to propose to Hannah. I cannot wait for their wedding in the spring. This couple holds a special place in my heart. ♥️
So excited to finally share this beautiful wedding shot at Home Place Farms. Christine and Christopher wanted nothing more for their special day than to be surrounded by their closest family and friends in the gorgeous woods of Oregon. Their day was filled with laughter, tears and pure happiness.
these two lovers running away to Catalina Island was a highlight of the
year for sure! Catalina Island is one of California’s Channel Islands
just southwest of Los Angeles; it is best known for its wildlife,
diving, and its highest peak, Mt. Orizaba. This intimate island is only
about 21 miles by 8 miles in size, but features breathtaking scenery
and beautiful spots to capture all the moments between these two — all
the sacred, sweet, and passion-filled moments.
Congratulations! You have a wedding to plan! This will be such a busy and exciting time in your life. Being a wedding photographer, I get to see a lot of behind-the-scenes action when it comes to wedding planning. I’ve compiled a list of things you need to know when planning your wedding. Hope it helps you to get things planned and enjoy the process!
Pj and Diana chose to have an intimate, Spring wedding at The Farm at South Mountain, and it could not have been more beautiful. They included a small group of very close friends and family ― no formal bridal party. I smiled as I captured the warm, joyful moments Diana shared with a group of close friends and family as she got ready. Her dress only added to her natural beauty; it was an amazing two-piece. The long skirt was perfect for the photos and the ceremony. Pj + Diana proved that having a small, warm wedding doesn’t mean skimping on the glamour or details. In addition to that dress, the florals were insane by @moelleux_events; they had tons of greenery and geometric candle holders.
Every little moment at AJ and Jessica’s wedding was fabulous. They chose a very unique venue, Tercero by Aldea, for their boho wedding. Honestly, Tercero by Aldea in Glendale, Arizona is a dream for anyone who loves bohemian styles (a personal favorite style of mine doing wedding photography for). As Jessica was getting ready, the room was filled with loving support from family and dear friends. The photos clearly show how happy she was the entire day! I loved the added details of the bridesmaids’ matching robes. The groom also had great support while getting ready; I loved capturing his groomsmen getting him pumped up for the big day! You could see how much they love and support him.
