I love engagement sessions!! Hemi and Sung greeted me enthusiastically in a coffee shop a few months ago and I knew we were meant to be ;) The warmth and excitement I felt from them when I first met them transcended into our time together during their engagement session. It was SO FUN! Just like long lost friends! We started shooting at Lovers Point in Pacific Grove and made our way to Carmel by the Sea. In town we visited a few places that were special to H&S, like where they had their first date and where they’ve celebrated birthdays.

I’m so excited for their wedding in March!

Ah! Amy and John’s wedding was so lovely. These two are kind and, come to find, very talented, people. Their love of nature combined with their love of travel created details that were unique and organic and I loved seeing their guests shower them with warmth throughout the day. It was such a special day!

Thanks to the amazing vendors who made their day possible and beautiful!

Where do I begin? :) With much anticipation, we headed to Half Moon Bay to photograph this special wedding! Bryan and Meredith are sweethearts and while we haven’t known them that long, I have had the pleasure of photographing them a time or two (or three…or four) in the past 2 years and we were so happy to finally celebrate their wedding day, as I’m sure everyone else was :) Their pretty-in-pink, ranch wedding was just beautiful and Meredith was a stunning bride! We’re so happy for you Mer & Bry and can’t wait to photograph you in years to come :)

What a beautiful wedding day at Wildwood Acres Resort for Samantha and Jan’s special day! Planning all the way from Germany (my 2nd couple living in Germany this year!), these two did not leave out any stunning details. It was special being a part of Samantha’s wedding day because just 3 short years ago, she was a bridesmaid in one of my first weddings I photographed! Inspired by lavender colors, their love for travel and their venue tucked in the forest, it was an enchanting, relaxing and fun day. Not to mention, Samantha was a stunning bride! What great people they are. Jan is funny, kind and adores Sam. I loved hearing him sing her praises as he made his welcome toast to their guests. Pure adoration.

These are the awesome vendors that brought magic to their woodsy wedding:
