Let's just whittle it down to what this whole wedding thing is all about. It's about slowing down and taking a day to reflect on where you've come with someone else and where you are headed to next. It's about appreciation and family and friends, and hosting them for a day to say, "You know what.. thanks! Thanks for coloring my life and this journey. Thanks for supporting my decisions and helping me navigate." It about looking at your partner and thanking them for being a witness to all of the small things that go unnoticed in life, the little things that fall in sequence and compose the bigger picture of life.
As you will notice here Freddie and Tan-ya had a beautiful wedding day and pretty much nailed all of the things I just mentioned. The winding steam train ride up through the Santa Cruz mountains was nothing short of magic. When guests disembarked from the train they walked into a redwood grove where the ceremony took place under the sun filtered by sparkling dust and towering trees!
I am VERY excited to share a collection from David and Cora's wedding with you! Little pictures have been leaking out here and there but here are the highlights in their full glory. As you can see Cora and David made creativity a flat out fun the top priority; the result of which was an artful wedding with one hell of a party. I will let the photos speak for the event. It was such a dream shooting this wedding for these people who I am lucky to call my friends!

Yeay! It's almost the weekend and I am so happy to be taking some time to sit down and share a session with you. I photographed Tor and Cass earlier this month and did a sort of home-town engagement session around long beach. These girls embody a sense of comfort and love for each other that definitely showed through while doing the session. I feel so grateful to continually be introduced to people doing what I do. Huge kudos to the babes for being such great sports and climbing on top of dirty train cars when I asked them without a single hesitation. I am excited about the wedding!
Have fun in the sun out there!
