This styled was just for fun and my chance to finally meet and shoot with Jenny! She was so sweet and someone I have followed and loved the work of for so long. We put together this shoot, originally planning for a different location, but with the air quality and smoke from the Camp Fires we decided to head to Auburn. Our models were newly weds Diana and her husband. Makeup by the talented Alexa, and florals by Angela! Overall a fun shoot with gorgeous fall colors and a slightly smoky sky.
Talk about a dream session! I've been wanting to shoot my first elopement for SO long, I've done several styled elopements, but this was admittedly my first real elopement. It was seriously such a great experience and an honor working with a super sweet couple from Texas, Joseline and Tucker. We all shared our first Yosemite sunrise experience as the golden light, peaked over Half Dome, and soaked the entire valley.
These two were so kind, sharing Walmart shopping tips, stories of their home in Texas, and what's next for the two of them. We started the morning with a session at Glacier Point, followed by their ceremony, and finally ending with a quick hike at Taft Point.
Emily and Jason got married a few weeks ago at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley which overlooked the entire Bay Area. Their ceremony was short and sweet with the beautiful sweeping view as the backdrop. They transitioned into cocktail hour that glowed from golden hour. Their wedding was catered with UNLIMITED ice cream, and they did a "first scoop" instead of cake cutting. They ended the night with dancing, surrounded by their closest friends and family.
These two have been together for ten years, and are parents to two cats, and a dog, Tibbers, Luna, and Dino. I grew up with Emily in church and went to the same high school as both Emily and Jason. It was an honor to be able to capture this extremely kind and loving couple's special day.
