Firehouse Restaurant Wedding | Ana and George

I had the honor of photographing this sweet couple’s wedding not too long ago and boy, was it amazing! Ana and George were made for one another. Their love was so evident the moment that I met them. George is a music teacher, but they’re both very musically gifted. The DJ played all vinyl, and their dear friends performed a sax quartet before the wedding in the loft. As an experienced wedding photographer, I know personal touches like these make all the difference for a couple. They expressed to me that the most exciting part of the wedding was getting to start their lives together, and celebrating great day with friends and family!

They had a gorgeous catholic ceremony full of tradition and beautiful symbolism. One tradition that took place was the Coins Crystal Lasso Flowers to Mary. The “lassoing” act is a symbol of unifying the couple together in marriage for their entire lives. What a beautiful symbol of the bond that will forever bind these two hearts.

The bridal party consisted of family members only, and I could tell how close everyone was. I know that each relationship holds a special place in their hearts, and it meant the world to have them by their sides on their special day. All together they are so full of life, happiness, and positivity. You could tell just by Ana’s smile that she was radiating happiness the entire evening. I couldn’t be more happy for these two, and I hope to see them again in the future as they go about their journey of life together!

Vizcaya Wedding | Casey and Jordan

This Vizcaya wedding was an absolute blast. Talk about a stunning couple! Casey and Jordan just recently got married, and these two were some of the most fun and energetic people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are free-spirited, wild at heart, and totally in love. I know people always over-use the saying, “you two are perfect for each other!” But in this case, it really is true. Casey and Jordan have such a spark between them, and I am so honored to have been able to document their wonderful wedding memories.

These two live in Hawaii, and are very active people who love to get out and have fun. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was that there was never a dull moment. Just look at Casey’s face as she was coming down the aisle. I love how she is not afraid in the slightest to show her personality. In fact, her and Jordan totally owned the day and made everyone feel happy and at home!

When asked what they look most forward to on their wedding day, “the first look” was the answer. These two wrote each other sweet letters before they had the first look. It was so sweet to see them in such an intimate moment, reading the letters. It was even sweeter to see Jordan’s reaction when he saw his beautiful bride. It’s safe to say that the first look turned out more than they hoped for! Not only was the wedding one to remember, but the reception was full of laughter and support for the two love birds. The families and friends seemed to enjoy every bit of it. A few loved ones got up and gave speeches to the bride and groom, and the whole room was crying, laughing, and everything in between.

What a perfect wedding for a perfect couple. Congratulations Casey and Jordan! May your marriage be filled with many adventures to come!

High Sierra Iris Gardens Wedding Photographer | Kari and Kyle

Kyle and Kari were precious.  They were absolutely thrilled to be getting married. I love feeding off that energy as a wedding photographer. My passion for what I do allows me to capture the passion two beautiful souls have for each other. Pretty amazing, right?

I loved the blue and cream colors that ran through their wedding.  Kari’s bouquet and Kyle’s boutonniere were so unique and beautiful.  Her braided up do with baby’s breath was simplistically elegant and very becoming on her.  Kari stunned everyone in her wedding gown and took her hubby’s breath away.  He couldn’t wipe the grin off his face all day. Who could blame him?! Kari was not the only one looking stylish on their wedding day.  Kyle had fun with his outfit choices as the groom as well.  He added some fun flair to his tux with not only a teal bow tie, but teal suspenders as well.

These two were all about nature.  We hung Kari’s dress on the adorable blue “A” frame house, surrounded by gorgeous trees.  The way the sunlight streamed in through the branches made my creative heart sing! Their couple’s images, as the sun started to sink behind the trees and cascade trees and leaves as they kissed in the tall grass, were simply breath taking. We had so much fun at the reception. Capturing the silly and sentimental moments truly made this collection one of a kind.

These two were full of love and could not keep their eyes off one another.  I loved the way they looked at each other, especially while they were dancing.  There was such sincerity between the two of them. After talking to them for a bit, they said the thing they were looking forward to most on their big day was being joined as one, and having a great time.  I would say they succeeded!
