Tamara and John are the sweetest couple. I had such an amazing time with them shooting photos all over Seattle. We were actually hoping for a foggy gloomy feel but of course we ended up with a rare winter sunny day. Ended up beautiful. Can't wait for their wedding with the Mindy Weiss team next month!!
Weddings on private estates are at the top of my list for favorite places to shoot weddings. This was family property up in the Santa Ynez valley near Solvang. The landscape in that area is so picturesque with the rolling hills and moss covered trees. I acutally met Anne and Marc while I was photographing a concert (here's a link to the actual show I shot that night of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) So we connected over a love of music and I got to spend a day with them shooting their engagement photos around an old airport Anne's dad was a big part of.
Here are their photos. Loved this wedding:

Drove out to Vegas for a photo convention and snapped some pics along the way. Good ole California countryside.
Big Sur is up there with one of my favorite places in the world. That drive up the California coastline is stunning, remarkable, amazing, breath taking and a bunch of other big adjectives. I had the pleasure of documenting Neil and Anya as they were wed surrounded by close friends and family.
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:
