Okay so the blog has been a bit neglected this Fall. But, we are back and ready to share all of the amazing sessions, weddings + photo adventures we’ve had over the last few months. A lot has happened- we finished our 2016 wedding season with an amazing celebration in Mexico and we are getting into some really awesome engagement sessions as 2016 comes to a close. Today, we are sharing a sweet session from a very sweet couple who will be getting married here in Santa Cruz next summer. Can’t wait- it’s going to be real good! Enough of my rambling- enjoy the pics + happy Friday!
Happily sharing this stunner of a summer day on this here rainy Friday afternoon in Santa Cruz. This was an extra special celebration for two of the sweetest! Haley + Dan gathered all of their family + friends and were married up at Radonich Ranch on a gorgeous summer day. We loved how they incorporated bright tropical details into their day and they even had one of our favorites- The Booth Bus for their photo booth! Haley from Rooster Ridge Organic Farm put together the gals bouquets and the brides flower crown. As we get ready to document another amazing celebration tomorrow out in the Redwoods we remind ourselves that a little rain on your wedding day means massive good luck and gorgeous lighting! More on that soon!
We revisited this shoot that we collaborated on with some favorite local vendors as it is now officially Fall and we are already feeling nostalgic for summer things- warm evenings, hammocks, barefoot adventures and it being light out until 8pm! We wanted to share a few more images from this magical day with E. Events Co., LOHO Bride, Kelly Jones Makeup and Hair, Christine Cater Floral and Event Design + Holman Ranch.
Wedding season 2016 is starting to wind down but not before a crazy September and October and we have had an awesome couple of weeks with weddings and shoots all over Northern California. We will be doing some traveling in November so we are starting to get excited about weddings in Cabo as well as the Russian River! But today we have a gem of a day to share from our own backyard- it’s not that often that we are shooting just a few minutes from our house but when we do we love it when it is at Nestldown– a seriously stunning redwood grove venue tucked away in the mountains. This Nestldown wedding was on a sunny beautiful day and we loved being a part of such a warm celebration. This lovely + sweet bride shone in her Lihi Hod dress and the redwood grove cathedral never disappoints!
Here it is the last week of August and we are back in the studio after a busy weekend of weddinging and engagement sessioning. We are getting ready to hit the road for a few days of family time in the Midwest just as it is starting to get sunny again here in Santa Cruz. We can’t believe that it is already almost September and have been thinking a lot about the beautiful wedding season we have already had (with so many more amazing days ahead)! Today we are sharing the images of a beautiful celebration that took place across the great city of San Francisco. These two took advantage of so much of SF and had their ceremony among the rotunda and delicate columns that make up the Palace of Fine Arts. Their reception followed just up the hill in the Presidio and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful SF day!
