Yosemite National Park Engagement Session

One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know my clients. I work with a huge variety of clientele from doctors to fellow photographers which gives me so many opportunities to learn new things. These two Austinites now live in San Diego working on their residency and fell in love with Yosemite on a recent trip and wanted to have their engagement session there. I had never been and while enticed by the idea upon the initial suggestion, I put my bar too low for the location. HOLY MOLY this place was breathtakingly beautiful. Like one of those spots you just can’t take a bad photo at; add the adorable Thao & Doug to the mix and I felt like the universe was handing me gold. I think my next stop should be Yellowstone, who wants to be photographed there? :)

I cannot say enough positive things about Chloe & Tim. 18 months before the wedding Chloe contacted me ending the story of her and Tim with “I am moved to tears and jealousy of your story and lives!” and with those words I was immediately moved by them. Their wedding was at the Pie Ranch, a cute venue in between San Francisco and Santa Cruz that reminds me of many of the beautiful weddings in the Hill Country area of Texas. They had a first look amongst the eucalyptus trees and a ceremony that lead many to shed tears of joy. Their love and commitment to each other as well as special needs kids is difficult not to be inspired by. Their reception was lead by a contra dance instructor who encouraged everyone at the wedding to get involved on the dance floor! Their genuine approach on life will continue to inspire me every time I see their photos.

You may recognize these lovely humans from 3 weddings we have photographed in the last year and a half! Sushma & Vivek have decided to embark on the adventure of celebrating their wedding anniversary every year with a photo session in a new place. This year, their 1st, lined up perfectly with our trip out to Southern California for Jaclyn & Justin’s wedding. In true bollywood style they were dressed to the nines for their session on the beach of Santa Monica.

Jaclyn & Justin are one of the many awesome couples we have been lucky enough to meet through Melissa & Dave. They started the wedding day at the modern hotel Casa 425 where the had their first look and took photos with their adorable son Noah. The rest of the wedding day took place at Justin’s parents home in the mountains of Clairemont, California. They had a Jewish ceremony complete with the signing of the Ketubah and breaking of the glass. The day could not have been more beautiful for an outdoor reception. While California nights can be a bit cooler everyone managed to stay warm with plenty of dancing. This group knows how to party right. We joined the group for the after party in which we managed to devour many pizzas.
