Katie and Adam {San Gregorio Half Moon Bay Wedding Photographer}

Holy guacamole, I have been looking forward to sharing photos from Katie and Adam’s wedding for weeks! These two planned an incredible celebration at the Optimist Volunteers for Youth Camp in San Gregorio, outside of Half Moon Bay. Do not stop reading, do not leave this blog post without cheering up your day and experiencing the joy of this couple.

Who here is a fan of rock-paper-scissors? A little rochambeau if you will. I have never experienced as much adrenaline at a wedding as I did at Katie and Adam’s. Right after being announced husband and wife, in a gorgeous, tear-jerker, music filled wedding ceremony…these two rochambeau’d for their new last name. It was intense. Best two out of three turned into a tie-breaker round. The guests were blown away, cheers, laughter, goosebumps. Their dear friend, referee Woodrow, was on point and facilitated spectacularly! You will have to check out their photos below to see who won:)

Guests were invited to stay for the weekend and camp, and Katie planned an excellent time for everyone. The decor was perfect, mixing a love of nature and the outdoors with a classy rustic touch. Her family and friends were responsible for putting together all of the floral arrangements, the beautiful bouquets, and the boutonnieres. The laughter was contagious (I may or may not have lost my voice after this wedding from all of the cheer). The tears were plentiful, and everyone knows I love happy cries. While Katie got ready the girls would burst into song, dancing and singing throughout the day. Music is so important to this couple, both with beautiful voices (making me jealous!) and talent that can pull everyone in. These two are the best, so much fun, such a sweet couple. I wish I could have stayed longer and toasted a smore around the fire pit. The day was no doubt one that all of their family will remember for a very long time. It was all about those closest to them, a wild dance party, a bit of country, and a whole lot of love.

Many congratulations to this incredible couple! The glowing and gorgeous Katie, you have found your prince! I wish you both a long life full of song and laughter and love.

Ashton and Will’s Mountain Engagement {Placeville Engagement Photographer}

It was only a little chilly, beautifully green, with a hint of sun on the day Ashton and Will made the drive up from San Francisco for their engagement session in the foothills. They are planning a wedding in the Los Gatos hills at her parent’s house, which coincidentally makes me insanely happy, and it is fitting to have their photo session in the redwoods. I absolutely love the whole concept of having a wedding at the childhood home of the bride. There really is no better way to celebrate with your closest, nearest, and dearest. Ashton and Will are laid back people and the home wedding fits them to a T!

I was so excited to finally this lovely couple, she is friends with a regular client of mine and I adore Cristin and any friend of hers is a friend of mine:)Ashton is so very sweet, after we talked on the phone I knew I would love her. Will is a fun loving guy, and I really did enjoy our session together!

I found a little park tucked away in a neighborhood, complete with a bunch of scary honking geese and a grassy meadow that made me peek over my should to make sure there weren’t hobbits running around. Placerville never disappoints as the perfect location for a photo session. When Sacramento is golden, the foothills are green. The towering trees and early setting sun make for some of my favorite images. I want to thank this adorable couple for coming to meet me! I am so happy for them and cannot wait to photograph their wedding next year! It is going to be amazing, I just know it. Congratulations you two! Best of luck with the wedding planning and I look forward to seeing you next May!
