After their family shoot in Sequoia, Brandon humored me and Kristen and let me do this shoot of just the two of them. Aren’t you glad you went along, Brandon?!
What an amazing trip/shoot this was! A refreshing-inspiring-having-fun-with-friends-and-quiet-moments-with-God kind of trip.
I’ve been photographing the Keach family for years and they have become great friends. First I shot Brandon and Kristen’s wedding in 2009 and then everything after! Now they have two adorable kids and it’s so wonderful to see their sweet family grow. They are salt of the earth people.
Kristen has been going to to this amazing camp like magical place called Montecito Lodge in Sequoia since she was little. Now her and Brandon go every year and made their own tradition. They thought it would be the perfect place to document their family since it’s so special to them. And it was. There’s something about being in the Sequoias that makes you feel peace and closer to God. (At least it did for me.) I am so thankful we were able to make the time to go and shoot and spend quality time with them. I will hold this trip in my heart for a long time and I can only hope they feel as blessed as I do.
Love you Keach family. I hope we made your Sequoia photo dreams come true!
Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez is so beautiful and inspiring. I was so excited to see Allison + Joe and photograph the rehearsal AND wedding there. Here are just a couple of pictures of Sunstone Winery and little preview of their beautiful wedding.
Come back for the rest of their wedding soon!
Feast your eyes on this beyond gorgeousness of a wedding. It’s a long one so get cozy!
Chaelyn and Noah are the sweetest and most in love couple. In fact, they love each other so much they had not one, not two, but THREE weddings! One with just their family and then at the courthouse. I was so excited I got to photograph and share in this magical wedding. It couldn’t have been more perfect and special. Between Chaelyn and Noah and the amazing details, there were so many pretty, sparkly things to look at!
