What a day. Was lucky to get to shoot this one at Waimea Plantation Cottages in Kauai. Inviting, warm, and relaxed are some of the things I’ll remember from this day. My kinda wedding. Huge thanks to Logan Cole for helping me on this one.
Victoria & Sasha got married at the Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs. It was freakin rad.
A couple months ago Josue & Bailey told me they were interested in hiring me and that they wanted me to do whatever I wanted for their engagement photos. I had always been conceptualizing an editorial engagement shoot that was among a secret garden. After a couple months of planning with our stylist Ben, we had a solid crew of people that came together to make this vision come to life.
A huge thank you to Wolf Camp Studios for providing the best creative space I could’ve hoped for. Thanks to the Tao Twins who helped with lighting. And to Ben and Rachel who crushed the overall vision for this shoot like bosses.
Amy & Chris are getting married in LA at Smoky Hollow Studios later in April so rather than industrial we went with a woodsy engagement. It was sunny and windy and all things that are good. Pretty neat when you have all the right elements like that. Things turn up pretty rad.
The Big Sur coast is a magical place and when your reason for visiting is for an elopement it’s even cooler. Filled with forest, trees, beach, and fog it brings together a lot of elements conducive too making great photographs. So when Amanda and Jimmy wrote me and said they were flying in from South Carolina to have a Big Sur wedding, I was all about it. What I didn’t realize then, was that I’d have the opportunity to choose where the ceremony location would be, and with a backdrop like Big Sur you don’t really have to look too far to make something epic.
Myself, Logan and Austin got there a day early and scouted all over the coast until we found a spot overlooking the sea. Later the next day Amanda and Jimmy said their vows with the ocean and us as an audience.
It was beautiful.
