Pescadero has become a favorite for engagement sessions. The rocky cliffs have a wild feel to them and the beaches are usually empty, beautiful and full of new hidden coves we’ve never explored before. Wedding season is here and we have been busy, busy meeting up with some really amazing folks up and down the coast for some rad engagement sessions over the past few months. Per usual the blog is behind but we’re back posting and will be catching it up here and there. The weather this Spring has been all over the place which isn’t always a bad thing for photography! Sunshine, rain, cloudy, foggy days- they all have their own amazing light and it’s all that different light that makes things interesting. Unfortunately these two had to reschedule three times due to those heavy rainstorms earlier this Spring. We managed to meet up during a sunny break and roamed the dunes and beaches South of San Francisco. They brought along their pup who was maybe the most well behaved dog we’ve seen. Anyways, enough of my rambling over here- please enjoy the break in the storms that was M+Q’s session and look for more posts coming up soon!
Carmel is a pretty magic place. White sand beaches mere miles away from redwood groves with classic California Oak Trees sprinkled in between. Elizabeth and Jeremy had an incredible celebration at the spectacular Santa Lucia Preserve nestled deep in the hills of Carmel Valley. These two were some of the sweetest people and they crushed the day with epic vows, a plethora of musicians taking to the stage, and solid late night snacks. Their dreamy redwood ceremony had everyone in tears and we have to admit- it was one emotional day. The sun shone bright for these two and we are so happy to finally share this wedding with you. Catching the blog up is an ongoing project- but we are on our way with more to come soon from this past wedding season (so much goodness to share!). We were able to collaborate with some great vendors on this particular day- Colette Cuccia Weddings, Burst + Bloom Flowers and of course The Santa Lucia Preserve. Thanks for checking in with us and we hope you enjoy this amazing celebration!
Okay, okay it’s been months since we blogged but today we are sharing a really special day. This beautiful Sand Rock Farm wedding was one for the books. C + D had so much of their personality incorporated through the day and we have to admit that the cellar at Sand Rock Farm is one of our favorite ceremony sites. Something about the ivy + cement is so moody. We got to work with some of our favorites on this one- The Booth Bus, E Events Co. and Chelsey Cueva.
We have been hunkering down here enjoying the Fall weather and getting ready to finish up our wedding season with one more wedding here in Santa Cruz. It’s been a busy, amazing season and as always we are feeling so blessed to be able to do what we do. Our couples are our friends and we are so glad that we were able to share in so much happiness this past season! Enjoy this lovely day and thanks for checking in!
So it had been weeks, months actually, since we had a weekend off from shooting and we got ourselves all rested up and refreshed and ready to go for the next weeks of weddings! River swims and some time at the beach was just what we needed to feel like our summer selves. Wedding season is busy and we do our best to take time to relax and refresh but it’s usually never on the weekends! We have some really sweet and amazing couples that we will be meeting up with soon and we can’t wait to continue the second half of our season. This week we have some images to share from a fun collab out in one of our favorite cities- New Orleans. If you haven’t been- you must go! So much music, amazing architecture + talented creatives out that way! We love dropping by the city as often as we can and had a beautiful time creating with Antigua Floral, Ashley Sievert Beauty + The Catahoula Hotel. The Catahoula has the perfect courtyard for an intimate ceremony and the exposed brick + black and white tiled floors make it a really stunning space. Hope you enjoy the pics and definitely make it out to New Orleans if you have the chance!
Today was the kind of day where I took boxes and boxes of USB drives to the post office and shipped off happy memories to couples from all over. One of those boxes happened to be the images from this pretty San Francisco City Hall Elopement. The USB got shipped to the lovely state of Michigan where these two traveled from to get married in SF! We loved meeting up with just the two of them to document their ceremony and go on a little photo adventure around City Hall and over to the coast. Shipping day is one of my favorite days and I’m happy to share these images with you all! Hope you enjoy!
