Along the coast here, we're blessed with beautiful seascapes in front of us, and enchanting redwood forests and behind us. Jenelle and Tyler opted for a redwood grove wedding in the mountains above Ben Lomond, California, and it was truly a magical setting to celebrate their big day. The venue (formerly known as Stones & Flowers) has reopened and re-branded as Waterfall Lodge. The grand new addition, aside from all the landscaping, is a masterpiece of a recycled wood "barn" surrounded by marble-tiled reception and cocktail hour terraces. It's perfect for typically-sized weddings, and we were lucky to have amazing weather day-of. I was so happy to celebrate this day with Jenelle and Tyler, and I produced way more photos than I typically do. I'll stop writing and just share a few of my faves:

Violeta and Mario lucked out with an absolutely gorgeous Monterey Bay day amidst a record-setting rainy winter in Northern California. Early March outdoor weddings can be risky, but sunshine, smiles and laughter dominated their wedding day. Violeta and Mario's parents on both sides acted as the four officiants at the ceremony, something that was new to me and WOW how special! It was all in Spanish, so I definitely was on my toes and focused, ready to capture all the big and little moments. We did the first look and all formal photos before the ceremony, so after they tied the knot I was basically a fly on the wall, capturing tons of candids throughout the evening. The Perry House is a great wedding venue, and the results from Violeta and Mario's wedding show it. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the day below.
Holy smokes, this is one hot couple! I met Brian through some commercial photography I've done with his golf club, so he was familiar with how I am to work with, and the level of fit and finish he can expect from the photos I produce. I was honored when he asked me to shoot his wedding at Nicklaus Club in Monterey, so of course I accepted! These two are so madly in love, and they've got that natural chemistry I love to work with, so shooting with them was a photographer's dream. They put complete trust in my creative instincts, knowing the results would be killer – thankfully they were right! The whole day was a whirlwind of amazing moments surrounded by incredible decor, smiles and laughs, tears of joy. I can't say any more, just look.
Below are some of my favorite photos – enjoy!
