nick + rachel: an enchanting day of their own making at the barlow, sebastopol, ca

Weddings & Engagement
April 7, 2017

Some people are visionaries by nature.

This is certainly true of ultra aesthetic bride Rachel + her kind spirited groom, Nick, who planned their eclectic + stylish day at The Barlow in Sebastopol.

This is the third wedding I’ve shot at the Barlow (Jade + Andy, Lillia + Robert) and this bride really took off with her vision as far as creating a space where dear ones felt welcomed in and also could feel surrounded by her bold artistic influence. The tables where adorned in geometric shapes, succulent variations + potted plants. I loved the subtle details of silverware in different shades + the tables numbers marked on tile pieces. She also had her dress specially made for her out of designer upholstery fabric and was decked out in all kinds of asymmetrical jewels + gems with a overflowing bouquet of greens + protea.

And I haven’t even gotten to their insane craziness for each other. I remember shooting their engagement session in Half Moon Bay + having so much fun because they were having fun with each other. They simmered + shined. It was beautiful.

I could try to put it into more words but I have photos, let’s try that instead…

Most of these images were shot on #lillytheleica (m240).

ben + sabine: all smiles in all the places: venice beach, canals + abbott kinney engagement session
Where to start with these two... I loved our meeting and the zest of life and energy they both have. We laughed. ALOT. They chose awesome areas for their engagement session in the Venice area. We started by the ocean, naturally, for sunrise and then continued through some awesome beachside homes, unto the Venice canals and eventually ended up on the famous Abbott Kinney street! It was fun to play with colors + angles + urban landscapes. Ben + Sabine were magic together. Let me show you... Shot mostly on Lilly (#lillytheleica) with a 24mm + 50mm Summilux f/1.4 I shoot engagements, destination weddings + ...

nina + ryan: victoria beach anniversary session in newport, california
Surrounded by the salty sea + the newport breezes, these two vacationed down to Orange County to celebrate their ten year anniversary. Sunset was the perfect time to catch the golden rays. Spolier alert: Nina is my cousin and I recall meeting Ryan for the first time over chips and salsa back in Indiana where they live. Once I get past the idea of how old I'm getting, I can't believe I got to see the very beginning of this romance. Do you remember ten years ago? Now imagine it shared with someone else. And you still love and adore that person. Worth Celebrating- no diggity, no doubt. I shoot anniversari ...

Rachel + Nick: Half Moon Bay Engagement Session
This is the day that the rain was kind. It was ominous all week + all morning before I headed up to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve just above Half Moon Bay to shoot Rachel + Nick's engagement photos. Typically, the rain is always welcome in my book but we really hoped it would clear up for this shoot so we could have a bit of variety. The afternoon was crystal clear, even with a bonus touch of sunshine. The Reserve had all kinds of beautiful areas to use as our backdrop. Rachel and I immediately bonded on our mutual affection for Anthropologie. It was so fun watching these two just play. They are such kids at heart + so crazy in love. Ca ...
