Jessica and David's wedding was one of the most laid back, easy going, happy weddings I've ever seen. Everyone was just ready to have a great time, dance, a visit... I LOVED it!
Jessica's sister is amazing with hair...but she lives all the way in Reno. Sad face!!!
Pretty light for a pretty lady...
One of the great things about The French Estate is that everything happens in one place... which means my team and I don't have to split up to get photos of everyone getting ready :) Yay!
His expression when he first saw his bride was priceless. I'm so glad I got to see it first hand :)
Mr. + Mrs.!!!
Ok, these two make the cutest sister team ever! They had me smiling the whole day :)
Jessica, you have the greatest smile!
Their first dance song was an oldie, but a goodie :) To have a listen check out their slideshow on the bottom of the page.

Mark and Jamie had the most beautiful, intimate, beach wedding I've ever been a part of. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:
Her sister helping with the dress...
I love Mark's huge smile as he sees Jamie for the first time :)
While I was thinking of the next pose Jamie excitedly asked, "Do you want us to lay on the ground?" That's when I knew I loved her LOL
The Ceremony overlooked the ocean.... soooo gorgeous!
One of my favorites of the day...
Jamie is a corporate event coordinator by day so I knew she'd have amazing details... but she really went above and beyond my expectations with the most adorable details and thoughtful touches... all done by hand!
I'm so glad we got to take advantage of the beautiful sunset light...
I'm also glad they were up for, "Just one more portrait, promise!" I couldn't resist this awesome wall behind the railing :)
I loved their first dance song... click the slideshow below to have a listen :)

Matthew and Megan came all the way from Ireland to get married in sunny California where Megan grew up... and even though the sun hid behind clouds most of the day it was a gorgeous celebration :) Here are a few of my favorite photos of the day... happy Wednesday!
Megan's dress was just amazing... I loved the bottom of it!
Matthew wrote Megan a special little note...
Megan makes a stunning bride!
I love the look on Megan's face as she sees Matthew for the first time...
After the ceremony we had lots of time for portraits on the beach... aren't those clouds awesome? They seriously saved my life... the beach is usually waaaaay too bright for portraits this time of day :)
Megan requested this one... I likey!
I love laughing, it's my favorite!
I haven't posted a details collage in a while, but Emiko from Renowned Events did such a great job on the decor!
I loved their first dance song... if you want to give it a listen be sure to check out their slideshow at the bottom of this page... it's the 2nd song :)
And finally, the toasts... one of my favorite parts of a wedding (especially when there are awesome Irish and Scottish accents involved)!

Hello! I hope everyone had a great long weekend. I actually got to take some time off and have some fun... but now it's back to work! I have LOTS to blog this week, but thought I'd start with a fun little engagement session that started at the Angel Stadium...
They were pretty excited to be in the dugout :)
A little change of scenery....
April is an awesome hugger...
I love all the soft, faded light...
Michael wanted a solo photo of his gorgeous lady... I was more than happy to oblige :)
Well that's all she wrote! Thanks for looking :)
Nate and Colleen: super laid back, smiley, and awesome :)
They're very outdoorsy and love hiking... I think they look right at home in this setting :)
A little pda...
This is my favorite of the day... Colleen looks particularly gorgeous here, don't you think?
Laughing with each other comes very naturally for them...
That's all for now! Keep an eye out for their wedding in Yosemite in July!
