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.














































































































































































































































































































Emma and Elias

Sharing some photos today from a recent shoot I did with Emma and her joyful son Elias on this Mother's Day. Emma's husband Michael was kind enough to gift her this session months back when Emma was still expecting Elias... low and behold the third trimester of business took over fate and we missed doing the photos while Emma was still pregnant. I'm actually so happy we ended up waiting to capture these because Elias at five and a half months was completely full of smiles and character! Loved this idea of taking time to make photos of just mom and baby; such a fun day of shooting and hanging with a very beautiful soul.
