I love it when a couple decides to have a low key wedding that's more like a fun party that happens to include a wedding ceremony, skipping a lot of the typical formal parts. It's a nice break from the norm, and allows me to focus on all the candid moments, capturing the intimacy of a smaller wedding with lots of interaction between the couple and their loved ones. After getting ready at Seascape Resort in Aptos, Karen and Todd held their wedding ceremony on the bluffs above La Selva Beach.

I've interacted with this family several times over the years – mostly with the groom's brother (I shot his marriage proposal as well as family photos later on at this same location). Everyone is from Texas, so this is a special spot along the Bay that the family enjoys to come together at.
Today, Matt and Pamela held an emotional, intimate wedding on , a grass-covered clearing on Ribera Beach in Carmel, with a large rock outcrop standing firm as backdrop. A beautiful location, to be sure, and a stone's throw from where Matt's father was married years before – but the view was nothing compared to the beautiful bride walking down the makeshift aisle with her father. In no time, everyone was sniffling and dabbing at their eyes, soaking up the pure joy of the moment on this beautiful day.
