kerry + chris: glamping outdoor wedding in enchanting big sur, california

Weddings & Engagement
June 21, 2016

Glamping is a thing. This wedding is the epitome of it.

Kerry + Chris are outdoorsy, woodsy people by nature who very much enjoy spending time in nature – sometimes even with their kitty Lexie (very true, I’ve seen photos). Chris is a surfer guy and Kerry is an enthusiastic bubbly personality on a very popular tech gadget website/blog Engadget.

Their wedding was charming in all ways imaginable. Big Sur, in all its majestic wonder, was a beautiful setting complete with redwoods, streams + cliff sides galore. The two married in front of friends and family by the water at the Phieffer State Park. Reception followed at the picnic grounds and included speeches, dinner + dancing. For portraits, the newlyweds headed out to the cliffs for the most stunning sunset to cap off the perfect day out in the woods.

Obsessed with this one, here’s why…

Burning Man Inspired Fire Garden Engagement Session
This shoot was particularly special since it was the first shoot ever in the Fire Garden in Bonsall, California. They had so many fun pieces to play with- my favorite being the broken pianos. This gorgeous bride had some mad hula-hoop skills as well. The two are very involved in the Burning Man Community and treasure their friends and experiences there. It was perfect to be in an environment conducive to their interest! This was a good time and a great love story.

Jeff + Masako: Sunny Marina del Rey Brunch Wedding at the California Yacht Club
Sunshine, brunch line + these two international travelers. It's hard to keep from smiling watching these two bask in an unusually sunny + warm Southern California day in Marina del Rey at the California Yacht Club. These two are adventure seekers + world travelers. They had their formal wedding ceremony in Japan where most of the brides family is from and then had a small western ceremony and brunch when they returned to California where the two reside. We were around yachts so it only felt natural to head down to the docks for some portraits before a small ceremony on the lawn and then inside for brunch and toasts.    ...

The Square + The Pier: A San Francisco Session
The first in-person date these two had was on the lawn of Ghirardelli Square off of the famous Embarcadero in the city by the bay. Chocolate and the bay view made for not only an ideal meeting spot but an ideal match. This lovely couple wanted to relive their first date by shooting in the same location for their engagement- they even wore the same outfits! We made our way over to the trolley and eventually the pier to finish off their gorgeous shoot. Having these two together was all that was required for this shoot. They are perfectly perfect together and I was so happy to snap a few memories for them.
