Jessica + Jon } Ramekins, Sonoma, Ca

In the quaint town of Sonoma there is a beautiful venue surrounded by hanging grapes, native olive trees and beautiful stonework. This is where two awesome people, Jessica & Jon, joined hands in marriage. They said their vows, they cocktail-partied and then danced, danced, danced until the night ran out.  Thanks for allowing us to be a part of such a beautiful occasion. You guys are the best.

Catharine + David } Campbell, Ca

I really just want to say thanks for letting Lauren and I be apart of the festivities. Honestly, such a unique and special wedding. And... how amazing that it was all in your own back-yard?! Your family and friends were so awesome and I have this great memory of the three of us trampling through your neighbors yard for photos. You guys are going to have an amazing life together. I can tell. I like to call my self an expert now. I know, I know, it's a gift... but you guys have it. All the best to you and the family!

Kat + Brian } Hopland, Ca

It was really incredible to be apart of this wedding! I loved both sides of the family, all of your friends (a few were mine too :) ...everyone was so much fun. Honestly, I don't think anything could've been any better: the food, the setting, the view, the dance party, it was all fabulous. I still dream about that barbecue and pie you served up.
Well, I guess they say "all good things must come to an end" although I like to argue against this notion so I hope you both keep in touch and call me sometime for a beer! Big hugs to you.You both shine when you're together and I couldn't be happier. I'm posting a ton of photos here (seriously could not narrow them down), more to come soon.

I had such a fun afternoon with you both (and sister). Even though the weather wasn't exactly what we were hoping for, we definitely made the best of it. You guys are sweet and I'm hoping you have the most beautiful, *sunny* wedding in Okinawa. Cheers! xoxo

Madeline + Kyle } Henry Miller Library, Big Sur, Ca.

Nothing pleases me more than being hired by other creatives. There is a mutual respect for one's process and a sensitivity to what it takes to seize such a thing and claim it by putting your own mark on it. Madeline & Kyle are no exception, in fact, this is by far the most photos I've ever blogged for one wedding. Everywhere I looked there was some detail or some skateboard trick happening. The romantic location doesn't hurt but in my experience, its what happens when you get the right mix of people together with the right amount of creative freedom. When that occurs, I push myself harder because I see the creativity that these two people equally put into it.  At the end of the day, this reciprocal exchange keeps me going.  Well... that and the fact that my assistant and I cut some serious rug with everyone [ dance therapy, haha! ].  We just couldn't leave this crazy-good-time. You guys are incredibly awesome and I wished we lived closer. cheers.
