Feels like only yesterday I had the privilege of capturing Yvonne and Tyler's beautiful Wilson Creek Winery wedding HERE! This lovely couple was everything a photographer could ask for -they cared so much about getting good photos, they were beyond incredible to work with before, during and even after the wedding! They were so proud to share photos with their friends and family!!! I wish I could shoot their wedding over and over again! Happiest of Anniversaries to you both!!! Hope you have an amazing one!
Here are their 3 favorite photos from their wedding day...
Brides words - "This is one my favorites because it truly exudes the passion and love we have for one another. Since the first day we met, we've always had this gravitational energy that drew us near each other wherever we were. Having him under my veil, in the place where my face was "hidden" until our first kiss as husband and wife, is symbolic of me never wanting him not near me, not even in my most vulnerable of places."
"There is so much love in this photo for everyone! Having our closest friends and family and ALL of our siblings together was MAGIC! So many of them flew in from out of state and one of the country for our special day. We love them all so much!"
"I love this photo of us praying because of the following scripture:
“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” (Ephesians 5:21-33)
I know it's long but it sums up my pure love for him and I know he's a gift to me from God."

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
