A Styled Vow Renewal

Last November I grabbed a few of my favorite wedding vendors and we created a beautiful styled vow renewal with the most incredible couple in love. It was so easy to get the shots we dreamed of when Keven and Kori are not only truly and deeply in love with each other, but they really like each other. I asked them to model because my times with them in the past always left me impressed with how much respect and love remained between them even after years of marriage and small kiddos. They are lovely in all the ways.

The idea was to style an event with a bit of a boho style while keeping it elegant and timeless at the same time. I’m so thankful for the incredible vendors that came together and made it happen with me. Here’s the team who contributed:

Kayla + Lance | Oyster Ridge Fall Wedding

So much love… so much laughing…. so much fun! These two, whenever I’m with them I giggle like a little kid and feel like I’m their oldest bestest friend! It was a joy to photograph their surprise engagement and especially their INCREDIBLE wedding. Styled perfectly according to Kayla’s impeccable taste and filled with wonderful people in the most beautiful setting… October 27th was a lovely day. Here is 203 (tooooo many!) images of one of my favorite weddings to date. Enjoy!

Seth + Alisha | Yosemite National Park Engagement Session

I strapped on my $8 yard sale baby carrier, put Ren inside and joined my new friends Seth and Alicia  in Yosemite last week. They asked me to shoot their engagement session in Yosemite and I gladly said, "Um yes!" It's the best place to spend a Sunday. Here's a few from our time at Tunnel View and our hike to Taft Point. I LOVE lovers in the mountains....
