California Intimate wedding & elopement Photographer


California Wedding & Elopement Photographer

Ryan and Tamara’s Wedding was held at the Bella Gardens Estate in Murrieta last month and I had the immense pleasure of photographing their big day.  Some of you may recognize Tamara as one of my dutiful assistants at weddings, but she is also a dear friend who I met over 10 years ago at college. When I first started out in photography I often asked friends from college to be my subjects. Tamara and her maid of honor Casey (who is my other tireless assistant) were two of those friends who over the years have continued to be my models. I was so excited when Tamara and Ryan got engaged and I was even more excited when she asked me to photograph the amazing day.

The ceremony was filled with tears of joy and heartfelt laughter as they exchanged vows in front of their family and friends.  Once all the tears were dried, and the cheers were raised it was onto the reception in the barn.  There was not a single moment that wasn’t filled with fun! This was a crew that totally knows how to have fun and party!

I am very glad and very happy to have been able to be there for my friend and capture the beginning of their new life together.
