Mid December Adam and I flew to Savannah, Georgia for our last wedding of the year!! The bride, Nicole, found me through Green Wedding Shoes and had actually contacted me before she was even engaged. She’s a wedding planner, florist and owner of a bridal boutique, Ivory & Beau, in Savannah. I’d been seeing and hearing about their wedding for months leading up to the day, and I knew it was going to be amazing.
Kristine is also a wedding photographer, and a good friend of mine! We met a few years ago and a few of us Bay Area wedding industry girls quickly became friends. We all were invited to their wedding in Italy, and of course Kaylia of Tumbleweed Floral Truck and Elise of Brannan Events pitched in too, so it was a bunch of friends helping their friend have her dream wedding! They picked this incredible villa nestled in Tuscany’s countryside, and we all got to spend a few days before the wedding exploring together.
I met Cara when she attended my very first Danielle Poff Workshop in 2014 at Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo! She’s still shooting weddings which makes me so happy and I felt honored when she asked me to shoot her engagement photos.
Kelsey and Ryan came down to San Luis Obispo for the weekend to celebrate their anniversary and to meet up with me for their engagement session. We started in downtown SLO then headed out to MDO to end their shoot. We laughed a lot and got to know each other, and it makes me so excited for their fall wedding at Higuera Ranch!
Another wedding season down (number 9 to be exact!), which means it's time for another "Favorite Moments" post. This year was a fun one!! We went to Italy, Georgia, and Palm Springs for three beautiful weddings. I also photographed weddings for 3 fellow wedding photographers and 1 planner. It's always a honor to be asked to shoot a wedding for someone else in the wedding industry!
Alissa is also a wedding photographer, so when she emailed me about her Palm Springs wedding, I knew it would be good!! I didn’t get to meet Alissa & Karl until their wedding day, but we instantly felt like old friends. Their day was a mix of Palm Springs Vibes, Positano elegance, and Cuban fun! They had a lot of personal touches at their wedding and their coordinator brought everything together.
Lauren and Miguel had such a fun wedding day!! Not only did Adam and I get to work with our friends Brannan Events and Tumbleweed Floral Truck, but we captured some super fun moments of these two getting down on the dance floor AND jumping in the pool at the end of the night! We love couples who are free spirited and down to just enjoy their day and have a good time :
From the designer Kelsey: When Danielle asked me to design the styled shoot portion of her 2018 Danielle Poff Workshop I was honored and excited about the chance to dream up a fun modern design that utilized fun punchy colors! If you know Danielle, you know she is all about alllll the color and unexpected pattern pairing while keeping everything modern with a touch of boho and always interesting!
Emily and Ntsou had the most perfect Fall, weekday wedding! Spanish Oaks Ranch was the perfect setting for this time of year, because all of their trees has started changing color. My favorite part of their day was their first look and Ntsou’s reaction to seeing his bride :) So sweet!
