Destination weddings are so fun to photograph. I'm generally showing up a day or so before the wedding, spending time with guests and by the time the wedding actually happens, I feel like a part of everything going on. They're intimate, romantic and everyone is together for more than just a couple hours on the wedding day. For Alexandra and Anthony, Mammoth is a special place and for me, I grew up snowboarding there since I could walk. In the summer, Mammoth is stunning. This wedding was definitely one of my faves this year. Let me know what you think!

Michelle and Andy had an intimate wedding at San Ysidro Ranch. Just immedite family, stading by, sending love, shedding tears and laughing together. The entire process was beautiful to be a part of. During the toasts, I had to wipe my eyes a few times. The day was perfect!
From Michelle, "My favorite two moments are standing with my dad before I walked down the aisle. We are so incredibly close, and I know what a big moment it was for him to walk his little girl down the aisle. The other was seeing Andy for the first time. I can still see him light up when he saw me and remember how happy and excited I felt in that moment."
