These two took me to Lake Tahoe for their engagement shoot and I couldn't believe I had never been here before! The whole area is so gorgeous and such a perfect place to meet and hang out with Valerie + Vedran.  These two are eloping later this year in Yosemite and I absolutely cannot wait!  It was so special to document their love and how much fun they have with each other.  Valerie was just loving all the PDA, it was great.

Linda + Jake's story is a little different than most. They contact me a few months ago explaining how they spontaneously eloped last year and never got any engagement or wedding photos done professionally and realized they still wanted them. Re-creating this day for them was so special and no better place to do so than in the Redwoods of Northern California. Linda had always wanted to wear a veil, but didn't use one when they eloped at city hall, so she made sure she had one for our shoot together. We met and had their first look under the towering Redwood trees, and ended the night on the coast just as the sun was setting.

Such a treat to meet and photograph this couple.  They are the most genuine souls you will ever meet and spending the morning with them exploring San Francisco, eating ice cream, hiking around Mt. Tamalpias, was the best.  I think it's easy to want to be relaxed while planning your wedding, trying to keep the focus on the moment, instead of on the details.  Well, this couple is ACTUALLY doing that, and I am so proud of them for it.  So excited for your new life together friends!!

I don't often get to work locally since I live in a small Northern California town, so when these two contacted me to spontaneously do an engagement shoot while they were in town, I was so excited.  We went to one of the best waterfalls in the world, just 1 hour from Redding, and got completely soaked, as usual, while the tourists watched us like we were crazy.  Been there before. Meagan + Gavin were so sweet, and we had such a blast hanging out together.  Their love for each other just pours out of every image.  You can tell just how much they love being with each other.

Met these two on a perfect Sunday morning for the sweetest in home shoot.  There is so much love and strength between these two after six years of marriage, serious goals.
