Normally I stay in the San Francisco Bay Area to photograph weddings, but when this lovely bride and I talked about her wedding and she asked me to come down for it, I couldn’t resist! It’s been truly amazing to watch this sweet young lady go from sporty high schooler to college student…then law student to now bride! It’s been a pleasure to watch her grow into this kind, wonderful, thoughtful woman and meet such a fabulous guy to grow old with. Love this wedding. Love this venue. It was perfect for them, and told the story of their love perfectly. They met 7 years ago, while in school. She is now becoming a lawyer, and he is an ER doctor. What an ambitious couple! Their friends and family were all there supporting them, and having the time of their lives…what a fun bunch! It was an honor to be there shooting this wedding, thank you for allowing Chris and I to be a part of your special day, sweet E & K…enjoy your sneak peek!!
We started the day with getting ready…she was stunning. Simple, side-swept hair and subtle make-up. Perfection.
…and the anxious groom, ready to see his bride in their “first look” before the ceremony!
Love their first look! So happy to see each other
Getting as many pictures out of the way before the ceremony always relieves stress and a time crunch between ceremony and reception. I highly recommend first looks. These guys were so much fun! Love the colors, dresses, and style!
Time for the ceremony! Everything went perfectly, ran on time, and was a pleasure to witness! The venue is simple yet elegant, rustic and country, yet very very tasteful. Loved how all of it tied together…even down the the brides lace train. Simply stunning.

Ready for their reception, and they danced the night away!
