Love those cute little kissy faces. 😚 . Today I tested out the 35mm lens I rented! My friends Rose and Jon (not pictured here) let me stick my camera in their face so I could get a feel for this different (much heavier) lens. They are not the biggest photo people but they were total troopers about it. Thanks, guys!! So thankful to have so many great friends who support my craft and let me use them as test dummies. 😁❤
“My sort of sister”
Tonight we are camping in Fort Bragg and the atmosphere feels like a watercolor painting just like this scene with @forest_faun and @cinder_hands ... to be honest, it's my kind of beach weather! What a day it has been- we started out hiking in Jedidiah Smith redwoods (hellooooo- if anyone wants to elope in an incredible forest of giant redwoods... 👋👋👋 let's talk) and then we drove down the coast where we are now sitting by an amazing campfire Blake made. Our last day of the trip has been so fun! ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ #heyheyhellomay #wedventuremag #mendocinoweddingphotography #mendocinoweddingphotographer #mendocinoelopement #portlandweddingphotographer #portlandengagement #oregoncoastweddingphotographer #oregoncoastwedding #santacruzwedding #santacruzphotographer #santacruzweddingphotography #californiaweddingphotographer #montereyweddingphotographer #sanfranciscophotographer #sanfranciscoweddingphotographer #crescentcityweddingphotographer #eurekaweddingphotographer #humboldtweddingphotographer #sonomaweddingphotographer #sonomacoastwedding #unconventionalweddingphotographer #nontraditionalweddingphotographer #bohobride #jedidiahsmithredwoods #norcalweddingphotographer #norcalelopementphotographer
I'm on a quick break from a thru-hike in the sierras and thought I'd say hi! If you don't know me, I'm an adventurer/wedding photographer and I'm passionate about shaping my work around my lifestyle. That means I like to take couples on photo adventures in beautiful places, shape experiences for them, and take time for myself to go on crazy backpacking trips every year in the middle of wedding season. I feel so lucky to have a job that lets me adventure and help people celebrate love in adventurous ways. A lot of people think I'm crazy for taking off several weeks every summer to backpack in the middle of wedding season, but it's such an important piece of my life that I'm not willing to compromise for money. After a big trip I come home refreshed and even more excited to serve my amazing, adventurous couples. I'm currently in the Tahoe area and I've been excited about the added bonus of finding amazing secret places for elopements and engagement sessions! I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for great locations when I'm hiking. If you're interested in doing a fun adventurous shoot/elopement/wedding with me shoot me a DM! ❤🌲 Edit: how could I forget to credit @brittneyraine for taking this great shot? Thanks Brittany! ❤ 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲 #norcalweddingphotographer #adventurewedding #bigsurphotographer #bigsurweddingphotographer #tahoeweddingphotographer #tahoeelopementphotographer #tahoeelopement #truckeeweddingphotographer #renoweddingphotographer #thruhiker #tahoerimtrail #bayareaelopementphotographer #sacramentoweddingphotographer #norcalelopementphotographer #santacruzweddingphotography #santacruzweddingphotographer #yosemiteweddingphotographer #sandiegoelopementphotographer #sonomaweddingphotographer #californiaweddingphotographer #californiaelopementphotographer #adventureweddingphotographer #fridayintroductions
Hawaii or California 🤔
Been working haaaaard on my new pricing guide that will be sent out to all clients going forward...and picking images for it has been SO fun...one of my favs? This one of Liz and Jake 😍 coincidentally, I saw them again yesterday for a little shoot and it got me all the more excited for their wedding at @twentymilehouse in September. - Also, I haven’t announced it here yet, but as of June 30th, 2018 I will be implementing new pricing. If you’ve inquired within the last few weeks or are planning on inquiring, I will be honoring pricing quotes on inquiries made before June 30th, until July 14th. After that date, new pricing will apply to open inquiries and new ones moving forward! - I am so excited to be moving into TRUE full time photography, and cannot wait for all that is to come. Thanks to every single one of my couples for the love and trust you’ve put into me...I am so honored to be part of your best days ❤️
Give me all the greens 😍 and cute couples, obvi. Still trying to fill a free shoot in the Bay Area on Friday night...if you’re local and would like to hang, DM me! And tag yo’ friends! Update: FILLED! You guys are quick!! I do have time around 2:45 for an afternoon shoot at a discount. Email or dm me for deets ✨
Olive groves ahead, a vineyard to our right and a blooming lavender field right behind us. This weekend’s wedding was so beautiful, it was hard not to stare.
These two are getting hitched this weekend!!!! I’m so thankful to have been here to watch their story unfold and for the friendship I have in this girl. I missed her bachelorette party this weekend because of reasons listed in my previous post - but we’re gonna party our booty’s off this weekend!! Happy wedding week, babe! Xoxo 😘
Mt. Lassen, California. I’m dreaming of a styled elopement (or real one?) up here soon...who wants to volunteer?!
***BOOKS CLOSED FOR 2018 WEDDINGS!!*** I booked my last wedding for 2018 last night, so I will only be taking engagement sessions, smaaaaallll elopements (like 10 people and 5 hours or less) and 2019 weddings!! If you’re getting married next year, DO NOT WAIT to reach out to your vendors! - My weekends are also filled to brim for months, so if you haven’t and need to book your engagement session, it will need to be a weekday! - Lastly, I will only be taking out of state elopements or engagements next year (no full weddings). Making a lot of changes around here, so I’ll be posting about it throughout next week; stay tuned! . . . #morningbirdphotography #authenticlovemag #mammothengagement #mammothweddingphotographer #norcalelopementphotographer #socalweddingphotographer #travelingelopementphotographer #mountainelopementphotographer #bigbearweddingphotographer #wanderingweddings #justalittleloveinspo #loveandwildhearts
Currently boarding my flight to St. Lucia for @kel_0x & Eddies epic destination wedding! Can’t wait to shoot those beach babes in more golden coastal light like these two 🙌🏼😍
I’m in the Subaru dealership right now about to bring home my new adventure mobile and I was (still am ish) super excited but honestly right now I think I’m more sad about leaving my sweet little focus here. I feel like she’s my puppy and I’m trading her in for something better and I legit feel so bad about it. WHATS WRONG WITH ME. I know I’ll be 1000x more excited once I’m on the road in a few minutes but right now my heart is sad lol. Please tell me you all get way too attached to inanimate objects too....???
