Amanda & Aaron, Mission Ranch

A blustery September day at Clint Eastwood’s gorgeous venue.
Watch the sheep in the background during the ceremony and the Carmel River in the distance as it meets the Pacific Ocean.
Best wishes to Amanda & Aaron.

Alysse & Nick, Pasadera – The Nicklaus Club, Monterey


It was kind of a drizzly cool day so the ceremony was held indoors in front of the big picture window. I’ve never seen so many packed into that room but everyone was happy and the ceremony sweet. Their first dance blew me away! It was 1/21/17 and women were marching in protest all over the country. I wore my pussy hat as I carried gear to and from the parking lot. Inside the clubhouse there was nothing but love.

Sarah & Billy’s Bernardus Lodge, Carmel Valley Wedding


A rainy day in April didn’t dampen spirits for this adorable bride and groom. They decided to hold an intimate wedding with only their two closest friends. The sister of the bride served double-duty as officiant and confidante. Billy’s bestie was best man.
They’ll gather for a larger event later but they were very smart to make sure they had a video to share. The full length version of this film gives the full hand-written vows each of them wrote to one another. Much love and happiness Sarah & Billy!

Gotta say, the Beach and Tennis Club ranks right up there in my top 5 places to shoot.
