Danielle & Scott married! San Luis Obispo, CA {Holland Ranch}

From the bride Danielle: Scott and I were introduced by 2 of our groomsmen (Dan Fitch and Justin Hughes) after their alumni baseball game. Dan and Justin had called me to come down to San Jose and go out with them and a bunch of their friends; Scott being one of their friends. The 2 of us talked all night and had a great time but we were both seeing other people at the time, so nothing came of it. Then a few weeks later Scott tracked me down and asked me out..... Turned out we both had broken things off with the people were seeing. We have been together ever since!
I was having a horrible day at work and was very grumpy by the time I got home. When I opened the front door Scott cued Garth Brooks To Make You Feel My Love. There were candles and roses everywhere; he lead me to a stool then he got down on one knee. Later I found out he video taped the whole thing! Which is great because I didn't remember anything he had said! :) Afterwards we popped champagne and called our families. Then he said I had an appointment and we had to go. He had booked me a manicure because he knew everyone would be looking at my hand and I hadn't had one in a while! Later we went to dinner with our families. It was so simple but so thoughtful! I loved it!

Brittany & Bj engaged! San Luis Obispo, CA {Green Gate Ranch}

Brittany & Bj drove all the way up from Orange County last night for their engagement session at Green Gate Ranch. Even though we got started late because of crazy LA traffic, we managed to get the most magical and beautiful light!!! Brittany & Bj are so sweet, and they literally laughed their way through the entire session. So awesome :) I can't wait to see them again this summer for their wedding in Lodi!

One of my favorite images ever!! (below)

Amanda & Brad engaged! San Luis Obispo, CA {Green Gate Ranch}

Amanda and Brad are so laid back, fun, and love hanging out with their dog April! :) I adore Amanda's hippie attire, and the fact that both of their outfits (second outfits of the day) are clothes their parents wore when they were around their age. How cool is that?! I'm SO excited for their wedding in Santa Barbara on a Thursday this August!! Their style is exactly what I LOVE, so I know their wedding will be amazing!!

Katie & Kyle married! San Luis Obispo, CA {Holland Ranch}

I had so much fun with Katie & Kyle during their engagement session, and it wasn't any different on their wedding day! :) They were married at Holland Ranch, a venue I've been wanting to shoot at! And it didn't disappoint! From the moment Adam & I arrived for the getting ready pictures, they were nothing but nice and welcoming to us. I literally think they are two of the nicest people ever!! You could tell that Katie had put a lot of thought into her wedding details. From the antique book centerpieces (since they are both English teachers), to the mason jars with blue and white striped straws, to the monogrammed K&K's all over, it was a gorgeous wedding to take pictures of. We were laughing with them the whole time, making jokes, and just having fun. I can't wait to be back at Holland Ranch in September 2012 for another wedding I'm photographing. Congrats K&K, hope you're enjoying your weekend on the Central Coast :) Adam met up with the guys at SeaCrest hotel in Pismo Beach to hang out and snap some getting ready pictures.

Katie's present to the girls were yellow flower earrings. I love love them!!

And the start of the horse pictures begin...I became obsessed with how beautiful they were.

My favorite picture from the day:

The beer was brewed, bottled, and had a special K&K label put on all the bottles by a family friend. How cool is that?! Their own special wedding beer :)

Lindsey & Trevor married! San Ardo, CA

Checking the weather every day prior to Lindsey & Trevors wedding, I started to get nervous it was going to rain. Months ago when she had told me the date of their wedding, she said she checked the Farmers Almanac and it said no rain. As the days got closer to April 9, weather.com said 64 degrees and sunny!! We couldn't have been happier! Adam & I arrived in San Miguel in the morning to start the day with pictures of Lindsey and her bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done. Once we arrived in San Ardo for the wedding, our day sped up. From detail pictures at the reception, to Lindsey putting her dress on, to the ceremony, and then off to the formal pictures, then the finale of the reception in the beautifully hand decorated barn. This special location the Gomes' were married at, is the land of Lindsey's dear friends the Orradre's in San Ardo. I'd seen the progress of all their decoration gathering and DIY projects along the way, but when I arrived at the barn where the reception would be held, I was blown away. The barn was transformed into a magical, vintage and woodsy reception stocked with hand cut tree branches, old frames, and burlap drapes to keep the cold out. I had a blast shooting this wedding, and from the bottom of my heart, I love the Gomes' :) I know you two will have the most amazing life together, and I can't wait watch it unfold!
