Christine and Rich at Saddlerock Ranch...

Malibu Canyon + Winery + Beautiful Wedding = Bliss!

Meet the gorgeous and amazing Christine and Rich, my dear friends and fellow photographers from Yodsukar Photography.  If these two look familiar it is possibly because I used to shoot with them when I was first getting started with weddings a few years back or perhaps it was from this years Rose Parade when they photographed the wedding that took place on the Farmers Ins. float! They were as talented and gracious then as they are now and I could not be more proud to watch their business and love for one another grow. Can you tell that I LOVE these two? And to have the opportunity to photograph their gorgeous, heartfelt, touching wedding day with ample time for gorgeous portraits all around the ranch, well HELLO luckiest girl in the world...

Rich and Christine, from the bottom of my heart I adore you. Your wedding day was magical, emotional and simply lovely (oh, and that Vegan food and wedding cake...amazing!).  Christine, you were one of the most beautiful brides EVER and you took everyones breath away repeatedly with you loveliness and grace throughout the day.  Rich, you could not have been more suave and handsome in the shoes of all the grooms you have photographed before you.

THANK YOU both for choosing me as your wedding photographer and allowing me to witness one of the most beautiful and heartfelt weddings of my life.  

I Love you guys!!!

Laura & Dan at Foreign Cinema in San Francisco

Meet Laura and Dan, a wonderful couple who I was fortunate enough to be referred to after shooting weddings for two of Dan's cousins in the past (see V+D and C+B here).  It is always so much fun to have the opportunity to document the weddings for one family multiple times because each time, I become closer and closer with the family and many of the guests which makes the day even more fun, special and intimate to photograph.  Laura and Dan's San Francisco wedding was amazing and like no other I had been to before. Their ceremony was a mix of the traditional and non traditional (a bit like the couple themselves) and I loved bearing witness to it.  Although Laura and Dan are a pretty low key couple, their wedding was simple but spectacular and as you will see, the details were uber cool (again, like Dan and Laura themselves).  I could go on describing this wedding but if I did my job right, the photographs below will do all the talking for me!   

Congratulations Laura and Dan and thank you for allowing me to document your amazing wedding weekend. I loved witnessing every smile, kiss, laugh and detail of your wedding day and am convinced that the two of you could not possibly be more perfect for one another. You most certainly have an amazing life ahead of you both. Cheers!
