Preview of Michelle and Chris


Preview of Michelle and Chris

It’s no surprise that I love to travel and that my husband loves going on adventures with me. And when Michelle contacted me about her wedding, I just couldn’t contain my excitement about traveling up to Murphys CA. Needless to say, I wanted to use it as an excuse to take a weekend away with my Keldon (sans kiddo) in a new place I’ve never been to. That’s exactly what we did. Booked a super cute Airbnb and drove 4 hours to the foothills north of us, listening to Roy Mercer (if you know, you know) the entire way. Didn’t even care that it was 90+ degree weather scheduled for that weekend, black clothing covers all the sweat lol!

Here’s some previews of Michelle and Chris’ wedding day for you all to enjoy, while I go through thousands amazing images for them to cherish and drool over.

Steph and Mo 6/29/19

Their wedding was only a couple of weekends ago, but I can’t help myself with obsessing over these two. I only spent 5 minutes with each of them and I already knew I loved them. Meeting their family and friends on their wedding day only solidified my decision to make them my friends forever. I’ve decided I might be a bit of a stalker now, jk, No seriously.

I have quite a handful of weddings under my belt, but this one was one for the record books.

No bridezilla (yep Steph)

Respectful guests

A rocking wedding coordinator

Wedding style a princess would be jealous of

Florals out of this world gorgeous

Rad videographer

That all being said, here’s a little snippet of the special day, their private first look that transitioned into a vow reading that made me tear up. For some reason the vow reading caught myself and the videographer off guard, but it was dreamy! And I’m so happy they decided to do it. Watching each other tear up what pretty much the highlight of the day.

Hope you guys enjoy some of these previews. There are sooooo may more beautiful images to come very soon.

Love you all, thanks for visiting!




Bridal Shoot

Its been raining a ton here in California, as some of you may already know. But I decided to toss my friends out in the weather for styled shoot anyway, come what may. Let me just tell you, they are the best, most compliant friends and I think they had a bit of fun with it too!

I had asked Kealy and Seth a couple of months ago if they would be interested in doing this shoot with me and to my excitement they said yes! Ive been in a creative dormant hole lately, and needed to let it out somehow. So why not with my favorite subjects, cuties in love.

Most of the day consisted of us girls (including hair and makeup artist Nichole with Artista Makeup) prepping for the day, with badly made jalapeño infused margaritas. I say badly because I attempted to make them and they were just plain awful. (Please if you want to show off your margarita making skills, I will gladly open my front door for you, mama needs to try one.) Even though I followed the recipe to a T, I swear! We quickly switched to just straight up tequila shots because you can’t go wrong with that! And plus, Kealy needed a bit of liquid courage lol.

The original plan was to go to San Luis to the Cal Poly greenhouses since they were protected from the rain. But that clearly didn’t happen, due to timing. So we loaded up in the car, with barely any sun out and drove to a random spot where no current rain drops were falling on the windshield. Which brought us to my aunt and uncles beautiful property west of Atascadero. Its literally gorgeous!

I ordered everyone out of the car. Nichole started up some hip hop jams on her phone, and we all pretty much danced around in the rain. And avoided sinking down in the mud.

Hope you enjoy these pics! It was so much freaking fun and I can’t wait to see who else I can drag out there for some memory making photos!

PS: Keep on the lookout for magical frozen raindrops.
