Last year I was so excited to photograph my first out of town wedding in Atascadero, CA. This was such a huge accomplishment in my career. Not only was it at such a beautiful venue, but Beth and Matt were the best couple ever!!! They were so much fun and super down to earth that I felt like I was shooting an old friends wedding! They even invited my husband to come enjoy their wedding knowing that he was going to be stuck in the hotel. I cant believe it has already been a whole year since your amazing wedding! Click HERE to see more photos of their wedding at Taft Ranch in Atascadero. I want to wish them the happiest of anniversaries and share a few of their favorite moments from their wedding day!
The brides words:
"I have chosen 2 images that are my favorite from the day. there are so many that I LOVE and it was so hard but I chose these because I felt like they captured so much of the day. First is all of our loved ones surrounding us for the start of our new life. I absolutely ADORED the huge sycamore tree that we got married under and am so glad we could capture it like this. And it is also a memory of when I fell out while we were trying to get picture =). No wedding is perfect right?! "
"The second is when we finally got to go in and see all of our family and friends as husband and wife. It was so amazing to see all of the people there to support us and wish us well in this crazy thing we call life. It was when we were through with the nerves and could just be us with those we love. Thank you again for capturing so perfectly this momentous time in our life. Hope all is well with your boys. =) Feel free to add any that you love too! I wish I could choose them all."
