I met Danielle at AE Bridal in downtown Chico where she happens to work. I had come to chat about doing a project together and it just so happened that Danielle was looking for a wedding photographer for her and her fiance`s big day. It was one of those serendipitous acts that the universe does when it wants to bring like minded people together.

Thanks Universe ūüėČ

I am so honored to meet these two. Michael and Danielle are some really incredible people. Call it a vibe thing but¬†when you start working with a couple and instantly you think, these are my kind of peeps, you know you’re going to make some magic.

These two are super kind, silly¬†and totally ok being themselves and finding joy through out the session was really rewarding. I am so looking forward to photographing their wedding day and I’m excited to share some of my fave images from their engagement session.

Ivan and Danielle’s Wedding took place in Corrallitos California. Not too far from Monterey this incredibly quaint area had beautiful charm and character.

Their ceremony and reception were held in the same area, The Corrallitos Community Center, where they shred their vows under a grove of monumental redwoods. It was a beautiful and sweet ceremony that was followed by a fun and celebratory reception.

My favorite part of the day was sneaking off right before sunset and driving to a fire station down the street. We found an incredible road with Italian Pines that made a beautiful and memorable location for the new weds to have a moment to themselves. I think the best time of a wedding day that time when you can escape and really dive into the moment, slow it down and feel your hearts connecting,  these are the moments that I love to capture.

Here are some of my favorites from Ivan and Danielle’s wedding day.

Enjoy.

Saint Augustine in Northern Florida is seriously one of my favorite places on earth. The warm stretch of beach, laid back attitude and the¬†adorable historic downtown have always called me back over the years. Maybe I’m partial since I used to live there in my twenties but I have to say anyone I have brought to visit can¬†attest to that.

I miss¬†surfing the warm ocean waves, ¬†margarita beach days and the endless nights at Panama Hattie’s. But most of all, I miss my many friends that became more like family. ¬†Since my family lived back¬†in California and I was just a young wanderlust beach girl with no resources to make it back home, this community of friends¬†became¬†my family. And I love them all so much still.

While I was visiting my home away from home I got to hang out with my friend Wyndham and her baby boy. I met Wyndham when she was just a grom, who would come into the surf shop that I managed and whomp on all the boys. She could skate and surf with the best of them, I was always a sucker for another chick keeping up with the dudes so she grew on me really quick. But, just like so many of the kids I used to yell at for snagging the last piece of surfboard wax, is now all grown up :(.  She has turned out to be a beautiful and amazing woman, friend and mother to one of the most adorable little groms, Atlas.

I wanted to¬†do a photo session with her and Atlas for mothers day so thats what we did! Just a little hang out session in Old Town. We walked on the cobblestones in the oldest city, hit up the marina and made our way by the The Castillo’s de San Marcos Fort. Just Mom and son and auntie with a camera, It was a great day.P I NP I NP I NP I NP I NP I NP I N
