A couple weeks ago, for the first time, I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at Moravia Wines. I’ve had, *ahem* plenty, of opportunities to spend some quality wine drinking and hanging out time at the winery, so I was excited for this one! To top things off, I got to reconnect with a family that I hadn’t seen in several years. I photographed Connor’s brother’s wedding 9 years ago when I was still getting started at this career. THEN, on top of all that, my super-amazing-hot wife was a guest at this wedding – she’s worked with Connor for a few years now. Enjoy a few of my favorites!
Michelle is the 3rd, and last, of the Goodman siblings to get married and she decided to go large to finish it all off! This is the first of their TWO weddings from a few months ago. It was so great to see and reconnect with a family I have gotten to know over the past 7+ years and many weddings starting with her brother’s wedding, her sister and cousin’s wedding from last year, and another cousin a few years before that. This was a simple, intimate ceremony with family and closest of friends at the Mission San Miguel in Paso Robles, CA. They saved the big blowout for the next day at the Allegretto Resort which will be coming soon.
So if you plan a wedding, outside, in August, you know you’re rolling the dice with the weather and Andrea and Jason rolled “super hot”! That was totally okay though, cause they were as hot as the day, and no one let any of it get in their way. The vineyard looked amazing, the expressions and moments were coming from every direction, and it was a fantastic day. Enjoy a few of my favorites…
Kelsey and Cameron were married in a ceremony at Pilgrim Armenian Church followed by a reception at the ever beautiful Wolf Lakes Park in Sanger, CA. Every detail was perfect carried out by the wonderful Cassandra of Weddings by Cassandra. It was a special day to work with so many people so totally present and engaged throughout the day in a setting that couldn't have been more beautiful.
Vicki and Evan were married at the edge of the Merced River next to what would have been Cathedral Beach if we hadn’t had a massively wet winter. The river was close to flood stage, and their officiant didn’t make it on time due to extreme summer weekend traffic, but the bride’s friend/wedding planner saved the ceremony by using her single bar of data on her phone to get herself ordained and then proceeded to knock it out of the park. Throw in some great dancers and the whole wedding day was a fantastic party. Enjoy a few of my favorites.
So it turns out that they have weddings at the Winchester Mystery House! When I got the first email from Britta, I was immediately transported back to being 10 years old and taking a tour of that bizarre piece of Victorian architecture with my family. All sorts of wacky stuff went through my head, but in the end all the wackiness was provided by Britta and Adam. As a photographer, there’s nothing better than a subject with an expressive face and a great sense of humor and these two had it in spades. Any day is a good day when you can spend it laughing regardless of what comes your way!
