Aaron and Shauna were married in an incredible setting on the California coast. Aaron is a good friend of mine and the team behind their gorgeous event were all friends as well. The team was made up of Jesi Haack with the design, Carissa of JL Designs, 1011 makeup took care of Shauna and her girls, and The Love Riot coordinated the day. And that evening, guests were treated with incredible food by Woah Nelly Catering and DJ JP kept the dancfloor packed. A really fun day to say the least.
I also shot Super8 video during their wedding and put this little film together:

2013 was an incredible year for me. I had the opportunity to travel to Colombia, Mexico City, Canada, and all over the US shooting weddings, bands and for clothing companies. I put together a little post of some of my favorite images from the year. I know I missed a bunch but here's a handful.

Carondelet House has become one of my favorite spots for weddings lately. It feels like you're at some great home from the early 1900's, dining in the great living room, cocktail hour out in the courtyard, and the place has so much character, you almost don't need to do a thing to it.
Eric and Kelsey were married there earlier this year and it was such a special wedding to be a part of. The vows they wrote to each other were probably the sweetest I've heard (and I've heard one or two), the the real love between them was beyond evident.
I really do feel lucky getting to be a part of the weddings I'm a part of. This was definitely one of those.

It's always an honor getting to shoot photos for fellow photographers, and even more special when those photographers are friends. Gabriel and Carlie are dear to Lindsay and I and when they asked me to shoot their photos this year, it was more like, 'Duh, of course!'.
We spent about an hour or so up in the hills and came away with some beautifully sweet photos.

If you haven't seen the newest issue of The Knot magazine, go down to your local bookstore and pick it up. A gorgeous issue and I'm honored to have had one of the real weddings featured in there. I'll be posting more pics from this special wedding in Solvang, CA but here's a teaser for now:
