Alec & Carolyn - Holly Farm Carmel Wedding

I still remember the day Carolyn first texted me photos while she was trying on wedding dresses. I remember the overwhelming sense of love and thoughtfulness I felt when she sent the first care package while I was pregnant (a box full of my favorite treats, #cheezits&sourpatchkids), and the second package right before Phoenix was born (the cutest fox romper and matching burp cloths, #deathbycuteness), and then a box of cookies 2 weeks before her wedding (from her favorite bakery in Soho, #isthisreallife?).

For 18 months, we have emailed back and forth about wedding planning and life. Last weekend, I finally got to hug these guys in REAL LIFE. And their wedding was everything we dreamed it to be - Carolyn's dress was a masterpiece, their families practically adopted me as their own, their vows were beautifully written, their celebration mode was on point, and their love was ridiculously photogenic.

I could blubber on forever about how much I have come to adore this pair. But instead, I invite you to relive their wedding day me with...

P.S. don't miss their dreamy beach engagement photos I posted yesterday!!!

Alec & Carolyn - Carmel Beach Engagement Photos

Carolyn first emailed me in January of 2016. Over the past year and a half, we have exchanged over 100 emails and text messages, she sent me a care package when I was pregnant, and then again when Phoenix was born. But it wasn't until Thursday of last week that I finally got to see this couple face to face. And the reunion was everything I dreamed it would be - complete with slow running from across the wedding venue (mostly because Carolyn's shoes wouldn't allow her to walk any faster).

I know I've said it a million times, but it's true so I'll say it again: I book the most AMAZING couples. I am so blessed to have met these two and captured their wedding just a few short days after we got together for their engagement shoot (so stay tuned for that beautiful-ness).

Jacob & Kelly - Cayucos Engagement Shoot

My time with Jacob & Kelly started with delicious cocktails and ended with the most magical golden hour I've ever experienced. The middle was filled with adoring glances and lots of laughter. This is the true essence of why I love what I do.

Chris & Millie - San Simeon Engagement Shoot

We rescheduled this shoot twice due to the beautifully epic amounts of rain California has seen.
Boy am I glad we did, because GET A LOAD OF THIS SUNSHINE.
