As promised, here's Michelle and Rhett's second wedding at the Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles, CA. After a small, intimate wedding at the Mission San Miguel on Friday, they did it all again, and they did it bigger, on Saturday for a few hundred guests. The venue was spectacularly beautiful, every detail was thought of and executed. Even though there was a whole wedding the day before, that didn't stop anyone from being fully present on the day and powerful, emotional moments were abundant. This was an amazing cap to a wonderful weekend with
I may be a little late to the party, but after photographing my first two weddings at Panoche Creek this year, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in the Fresno area. The grounds are just amazing with massive, old trees, established orchards, and as I discovered at this wedding after the river waters receded, a beautiful meadow. To top it off I got to spend this day with the extraordinarily friendly and kind Hailey and Greg and their friends and family. Even though their bridal party was quite large, it was obvious that
I probably sound like a broken record, but working with expressive people is SO MUCH FUN! No shade towards Gary - who's a totally awesome dude - but Emily has an outsized personality that literally blows up any room she walks in to. Actually, everyone was a character at this wedding including Gary and Emily's little boys. So many great personalities all the way around, but I think the pictures are going to show you that. Enjoy my favs!
After photographing over 350 weddings since 2005, one of the things I'm most proud of is how often I'm hired by family and friends of past clients. This wedding was a perfect example after photographing Erick's brother's wedding a couple years ago (eventually I'll get to posting that one too!). It's so much fun to hang with familiar people and extend the stories started in past years. I love that Erin and Erick are both unabashed Star Wars fans and let all that come through in their wedding - from Han and Leia figures on the cake,
I first met Nicole and Chris at Sarah and Ryan's wedding a couple of years ago. I'm not going to lie, I secretly thought they were a really cool couple and hoped they would get married and hire me. Well the universe heard me and here we are! I love that they are as sarcastic as me, love beer as much as I do (probably even more), and have a sarcastic wit which can keep the banter going forever. It was an absolute blast hanging out with them and their friends for the day and
One of my favorite things about weddings in Yosemite is that they are NEVER alike. I get to meet people from all over the world and the only thing in common is their great love for the mountains and the outdoors. Julie and Jeff were no exception. They live in Colorado but had never actually been to Yosemite before the day of their wedding. They gathered 25 of their closest friends, rented an amazing cabin outside the park, and got their first taste of Yosemite about 10 minutes before we met. It was a blast
