katelyn + tavis. point reyes wedding photography. california

the wedding of katelyn and tavis will stay close to my heart for a long, long time.  there is just something about a small, intimate wedding that i absolutely love to document.  maybe it was the amount of time that i was able to spend alone with katelyn and tavis, or the beautiful scenery, or the great weather, or maybe it was the bagpipes, whatever it was, the wedding was perfect.  by the end of the night, i didn’t feel like just the photographer, i felt like a friend…

john + steve. santa barbara wedding photography. california

i feel all the feelings for john and steve’s marijuana themed santa barbara courthouse wedding.  not only were their boutonnieres adorned with marijuana from the families’ farm, so were the dog boutonnieres, as well as the gorgeous funfetti wedding cake.  this was truly a celebration of their love and union…
