{rebecca + mike} timber cove . sonoma coast

This romantic wedding was held at the  elegantly rustic Timber Cove Inn, near  Jenner on the majestic Sonoma Coast. Mike, a biologist & Rebecca, an artist- both lovers of all natural things & madly in love with each other. Ever since my first conversation with Rebecca, I was looking forward to this intimate coastal wedding. She was so obviously smitten with her love & so excited about all of the thoughtful details that they put into the day. It was a delight to photograph their love on this joyful day!

{emily & andrew} paso robles wedding

I am so pleased to be sharing these images with you! Emily and I attended Cal Poly together and I was thrilled when she shared that she had found true love in Andrew. Their wedding was simple with a beautiful backdrop surrounded by friends and family that traveled afar to share the day. They exchanged rings under a giant oak tree at Stacked Stone Cellars and I couldn’t be happier for them!

The last two weeks have been a joyful swirl of travels, beaches, blissful days, beautiful brides & amazing locations. We have just returned from two destination weddings: Hawaii & Aruba!  I have so much to share but wanted to begin with a bit of the personal work that I did while traveling around Hawaii. I bravely took along my SX-70 vintage Polaroid and had great fun experimenting with different shots. It is such a mental shift from a typical day in wedding photography and a breath of fresh air to my sense of creativity. Here’s a few from Hawaii:

Wow…can I just say that 2010 brides…I love you!  In the last two weeks, I have been flooded with 2010 inquires.
