California Film Photographer

This morning I woke up before any lights had been turned on in our house, before pudding was served for breakfast and before the sun started streaming through the windows. I wanted to go for a quick walk to see the sun rise and meet the waves at Sunset Beach, and I wanted to put the Contax 645 I rented to use… of course. ;] Being in Hawaii the last 5 days has been absolutely incredible, it’s hard to believe we still have a week to go!

I don’t have any Hawaii pictures downloaded yet, because the majority of them have been taken on film, but you can see a few of them over on instagram if you’re looking for some islandy goodness. ;] Instead today I’m going to share a few images from a different trip I took. Earlier this year I drove up to Sacramento for Joy & Thomas’s wedding and I shot some film along the way.

About 4 hours in to our drive through the middle of California we came across this magical land called Bravo Farms.

Schehrezade & Joe

These two. They did everything I would do. On a Friday afternoon, surrounded only by their very closest friends and family they said, “I do.” at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. Being married is so much more important than a huge wedding. I love that. A few months after their wedding Schehrezade & Joe got all dressed up again and we went out to the sunshine for some portraits, that were super relaxed and not bound by any timeline. I’m so excited to share them today! ♥

Huge thank you to Sheena at Rooted Harmony for Schehrezade’s goooooorgeous bouquet!

Kristy & Ryan

I have to say, one of the biggest perks of being a photographer is being present and in the moment with people on some of their best days. Engagements, weddings, pregnancies. The best days! Every now and then I have the opportunity to photograph a proposal and I have to say, proposals are some of my absolute FAVORITE moments to capture. Aside from being able to document such a life changing moment for a couple, the adrenaline surrounding hiding in the bushes taking pictures and trying not to be seen all while being part of a life changing moment. There is nothing better!

Ryan went all out to surprise Kristy at Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, their afternoon started at Nelson’s and then they decided to take what Kristy thought was just a casual walk down to the beach.

Lindsay & Kelley

When a friend asks me to photograph their wedding it’s the best. It’s like I end up with a backstage pass to all the fun parts of a wedding. I love it! Being behind the scenes at Lindsay and Kelley’s wedding was incredible– because well, they are incredible. Loved filled the entire day. Their love for Jesus radiated from them at every moment of the day, their love for each other was so evident in their words, glances and touches, and their love for the people surrounding them was obvious.

Lindsay and Kelley’s wedding was filled with personal touches, they were married in the church they’ve attended most of their lives and their reception was held at the coffee shop where they work together. But before all of that their day started at the Custom Hotel.

Joy & Thomas

It was almost 2 years ago when I met these two on Main Street at Disneyland. They’d driven down from Northern California to spend a few days at Disneyland and California Adventure after having just gotten engaged in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle a month before. And what better way to memorialize their love for Disney and their engagement with a session inside the park?

That means, I– we have been counting the days to their wedding for almost 2 years!!

A few weekends ago when I made my way up to Sacramento to meet Joy & Thomas at Arden Hills Resort I could not contain my excitement and now I’m so excited to share their wedding day with you! ♥
