Shauna & John's Happy Hideout Wedding

May and I pulled off of Highway 88 and made the right and turn that would take us two miles towards Shauna and John's wedding. The magic that we would find on the other end of the roadwas like no other. But first things first.. gunning my 02 Eurovan up a massive hill so freaking steep it would put San Francisco's finest slopes to shame. And then... we were there, chasing down a folk band, in a sea of axe throwing, lake lounging with the guests; giggling with mountain mamas radiating in their jewel toned gowns, sipping whiskey out of a shotgun barrel with some shady groomsmen, and getting high on the pine trees and crisp mountain air. I said it once and I may have said it a million more times that day; "Man o' Man! I wish I could get married all over and have a party here like this!"  
 
Highlights of this one were shooting Shauna and John at the private lake in front of their log cabin. I wanted the shot from the water so I walked my pregnant self right on into the lake chonies and all. Working with Katie Rebecca owner of Cotton & Oak Events who not only brought together so many of the beautiful details but also came with THE BEST and most fun attitude I have ever seen out of a wedding planner.

Anne and Chris Secret Garden Wedding

This is one of those weddings where the bride is everything. Sweet beautiful Anne graced me with an email over a year ago asking me to be her wedding photographer and the rest is history. She was a dream from the start with her huge glowing smile and thankful demeanor. As you can see Anne has a beautiful sense for paper goods and florals. Her artistic sensibility showed through from her lovely Kinsley Bridal gown to the menu cards and paper goods from Minted. Such a beautiful and romantic garden wedding. You can see their wedding featured today on Style Me Pretty, click here for more!

Jesse & Caito | Baja, MX

Our Sun is a second- or third-generation star. All of the rocky and metallic material we stand on, the iron in our blood, the calcium in our teeth, the carbon in our genes were produced billions of years ago in the interior of a red giant star. We are made of star-stuff.- Carl Sagan 
 
I am over the moon today to finally share photos from my favorite destination wedding last year. The wedding of Jesse Chapo and Caito O'Connor aka "Los Ochapos" at Pachamama in beautiful Todos Santos, MX. If you haven't yet checked it they are featured this weekend on Green Wedding Shoes Blog so head on over there too and check out the love.  
 
I was feeling so Inspired I filmed and put together this little vid of some favorite moments! 
 
Jesse and Caito wanted a simple wedding, with a small group of essential friends and family. The main priority? Hours in the surf and sun. I dragged Josh down the Baja coast with me to enjoy the magical union of these two star crossed lovers. We had a time, the kind of time that only grows fonder in memory as I look back at the trip and makes me wish I was right back in the moment.  
 
Josh and I knew we were off to a great start when we ditched our airbnb after wandering into the Todos Santos Inn, staying for a drink in their bar to watch the world series and then deciding to never leave. This hotel was a magical discovery, the old chipping brick walls were covered in vines and plants and layers of paint. The staff invited us in like family. Beautiful architecture and some of the most amazing and fresh sushi I have ever consumed at this spot! Truly a gem! 
 
We hit the dirt road the next afternoon for mid day surf for Josh and to meet with with Caito & Jesse (the bride and groom to be). I was still not allowed to go into the water since I was still recovering from being hit by a car a month and a half before. TORTURE! But we got out to the beach. The landscape was so flat and monochrome, it was beautiful like someone had taken a paint brush and painted 2 horizontal lives on a canvas. One the color of sand and one the color of the sea. 
 
Josh proceeded to mosh out too far up the beach, not heading my warnings of getting stuck in the sand. Well...we got stuck in the sand. Baja road trip checklist- CHECK. Oye! Well I do believe the photos speak for themselves. The journey was amazing and as you can see these two humans embody what I love and mean when I say "Photographer for Adventurous Souls." Jesse and Caito... here's to you! I love the way you do the things you do. You are creative, talented, deep living souls and I'm so happy I was chosen to capture your wedding week.














































































































































































































































































































Cheers to the Unexpected

When I rolled up to the forest for Tina and David's post wedding session of course we were greeted by no less than 500 goats and one herding dog. "This is going to be interesting!" I thought to myself. In true Melissa Fuller couple fashion my awesome bride and groom followed me without question, hopping over an electric fence to get the shot! Cheers to the unexpected which, time and time again, keeps becoming the spice of my life. May your week and love lives be filled with more thrills and unplanned amazing things! 
xo, 
Melissa
