A Wedding in the Occidental Redwoods

I loved being a part of Freesia & Randall’s wedding!  They chose to marry in a redwood grove (the perfect choice for a warm July day), and then lead their guests in a Second Line Parade through downtown Occidental to their reception site – the historic Occidental Union Hotel. Weddings (at least the good ones) usually have more than their […]

Mayacama Wedding

Natalie and Neal are so genuine, and were so much fun to work with!  Stephanie Beer of Convenant Coordinating teamed up with Paige Benjamin of Passiflora to set the mood and it was spectacularly beautiful.  I particularly loved the use of olive leaves in the table arrangements and the glowing lanterns dangling from the olive trees.  All […]

Jacuzzi Winery Wedding

Ella and Rick came all the way from Australia to marry at the beautiful Jacuzzi Winery.  It was my first time photographing there and it didn’t disappoint.  Everywhere you turn there is a lovely stone archway or a breathtaking view.  Truly a treat for a wedding photographer!
