Sunrise Yosemite Elopement

So somehow I got to be close friends with some of the most amazing people in the world. Not to mention some of the most talented people in the world as well. In July I was given the opportunity to shoot another unforgettable elopement with my lady, Anni Graham.

This little elopement in Yosemite turned out to be one of the most breathtaking experiences I have ever had, when really we were all very worried it was going to be ruined from the incredible heavy smoke that had filled the valley. So much so, it closed down the entire park. So on a whim, and with Anni’s years of expertise in Yosemite, we made the last minute decisions to head to Tuolumne Pines at 4am to catch the sunrise for Christina and Greg’s first look.

There were definitely tears while we all took in the sunrise over the water like we had never seen the sun rise before. The rest of the weekend was filled with mariachi bands, german lederhosen, unicorn masks, and so much more. To say the least, the smoke didn’t even have a chance on making this wedding anything less than what it was, dang special.

Bodega California Engagement

Two Los Angeles love birds traveled up the California coast to find the perfect spot to vow to each other forever. Lucky for me they chose a spot very near and dear to my heart, Bodega Bay CA (the coastal town I grew up going to every weekend).

It only made sense we meet up and celebrate their engagement in the same spot they would be getting married at months later. We chatted and snort-laughed in a little sea-shack while devouring some bbq oysters, and then set out to the hills covered in ocean succulents to play a little. 

We interrupted a family of deer, laughed at all of Chris’ jokes, and finished off the night with some good beer and a little “flash dancing”. 

You could say Cole and I are more than stoked for April to capture these two tying the knot.

California Coast 30 Year Anniversary

The most fiery and everlasting love I have ever witnessed, and I get to call these two people my soon-to-be parents-in-law. Woah.

For starters, my parents have been divorced my entire life. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I have never really had a strong example of what love between two people could look like. Until I met Cole’s parents.

After 30 crazy and beautiful years of marriage and 3 one-of-a-kind kids later, these two treat each other everyday as if they just met, and their “honeymoon phase” just started. To now have such an incredible example of a successful and loving marriage right at my fingertips, I cannot tell you how much I truly appreciate this strong, strong, love they share.

Denise and Laurence, I cannot wait to call you mom and dad. Your love inspires Cole and I every. single. day.

Cheers to 30 years. xoxo.

California Sandy Dunes Engagement

I don’t really think it can get much better than to get to roll around in the sand for your engagement session. Katie and Tanner were our meant to be friends from the get go. They love kittens, in-n-out, and being just as adventurous as our crazy souls are. There sure is never a dull moment with these two with Katie snort laughing and scrunching her forehead or Tanner stealthily licking Katie’s face, you could say we had a good time. After playing capture-your-fiancé in the dunes we headed to the beach for some bubbly and a sweet sunset.

Even though we are all still attempting to get all the sand out of our ears, hair, and cracks, we love you both to the ends of the earth.

Wowee what a sweet day.
