Aaron is a cousin of one of my fave former brides (the adorable Jessica) and I was thrilled to meet with them about photographing their wedding and engagement. They met me on their way up to Tahoe to stay the weekend in a fire lookout in the snow. From our first meeting I knew I would love them both.

We met in San Gregorio at the beach before heading out to the horse ranch where Alyson works. I love how personal their engagement session was…from kicking around in the sand to hugging ponies. Alyson has the best smile and I love how easy their relationship is. It was foggy and beautiful, but she lit up the evening with her spirit. Many thanks to this amazing couple for trusting me with their wedding and engagement photos!!

Christina has a gorgeous family and I always love photographing them. They are so naturally affectionate with each other and these kids are so spunky and fun. They recently bought some property in Loomis and are in the process (early early stages!) of building their dream home in the country. While life is challenging living in a trailer while they start construction, they are loving every single second and wanted to document their land before they break ground. It was a blast running around their gorgeous field with them and I wish them all the best in their new adventure. There is really nothing better than these types of personal sessions. Documenting their now is so truly special.

Gabby and Cameron’s wedding day was immensely emotional. From bittersweet tears to absolute joy it was a celebration I will always, always remember. Gabby’s father was hospitalized the week before her wedding day. They had been planning on having the wedding at her parent’s home (and spent hundreds of hours working on the yard and getting everything ready). The entire family was devastated with the turn in his health and when the day came, they rallied into action and put together a spontaneous wedding at the hospital.

These first images are from their morning ceremony:

After they were married in front of their parents, immediate family, and a few best friends, they headed out to get ready for the big event at Gabby’s childhood home.

After Cameron, Gabby, and their bridal party did their photos I was told her father was released for the wedding day and was driven home from the hospital by a family friend (a surprise for everyone including her dad!) The rest of their day continued as originally planned and Gabby was overcome with emotion upon seeing her father in the kitchen.

Huge congratulations to this happy couple. I am so thankful I was a part of your day.
