jade + andy: super mini anniversary session in auckland, new zealand.

Weddings & Engagement
July 4, 2017

once upon a time i hopped off a plane in auckland, new zealand and one of the sweetest couples i’ve worked with picked me up and we headed to a golf course before the winter sun went down.

my jet lag was severe + my hair was not pretty but with lilly in tow + excitement abound we jumped out of the car. it all feels like a blur but we reminisced, caught up and snapped a few shots as the sky quickly turned to night. with the thick clouds, the abundant greens + this pair, it’s one of my favorite  little shoots ever.

perfect first little taste of new zealand.

what a sunset, what a couple.

what a time is was.

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 ...

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