China & Mark’s Wedding, Palmdale Estates

Life is just packed this time of year, but I had to take a minute to stop and share just a few images from a wedding that has brought me so much joy.  A little while back I blogged some shots I really enjoyed from China and Mark’s engagement session. But that was just the beginning. For their wedding, the Palmdale Estates provided such a beautiful location for a relaxed late afternoon ceremony, and I love the way the sun soaked through our portrait time. Other highlights for me included a fun chance to be creative with lighting on a first dance and a rocking U-C-L-A cheer to end the night led by Mark himself.  Of course when you have two people that are in to each other this much they’re going to be surrounded by so many others who love them… and came to party!

Awesome photos. Really bummed I couldn’t make this. Particularly love the collective F bomb about to be dropped in the last photo – also, Mark’s fist. Powerful.

Jamie & Adam’s Reception at the Lynmar Estate, Sebastopol CA

What I love about Jamie and Adam’s marriage celebration is that they thought out of the box. They wanted a classic City Hall wedding, and then planned to just celebrate with their family and closest friends in the heart of wine country. My buddy Augie Chang shot the City Hall Ceremony on a Friday afternoon, and I had the privilege of shooting the party the next day up at the gorgeous Lynmar Estate in Sebastopol. While the city languished in clouds and wind, everyone hopped on a party bus and arrived at a beautifully warm Sonoma evening. We also had a blast stomping through the amazing gardens and vineyards of Lynmar. I always say joy is what makes people beautiful, and they were positively glowing with delight in each other. So much laughter, so much fun, and can I mention they had BBQ for dinner? Just sublime.

Ayesha & Tom, The Ranch Golf Club, San Jose CA

Ayesha and Tom created a beautiful two day wedding celebration that beautifully blended their families’ two heritages. From across the continent, and around the globe people came to delight in these two and the commitment they made two each other. Their hope for the wedding was simply that their friends and family would be able to enjoy these special days and I think it’s more than fair to say that a good time was had by all. It’s my pleasure to share some of my favorite images of my time with them here today.
