Mindy and Adam

Mindy and Adam had a wonderful San Luis Obispo wedding at the Botanical Garden. I have never shot a wedding at the Gardens before and was thrilled to do so last weekend. The Gardens has wonderful light during the afternoon and sits nestled in next to a golden hillside (my favorite!). We started off in Cayucos where Mindy got dressed and ready to go. We then headed out, mid day, to the San Luis Obispo Botanical Gardens for the ceremony and reception. The reception included tons of dancing spurred on by the lovely Melissa from Kramer Entertainment. Melissa played an awesome collection of music that had the entire room dancing for 2 straight hours! I can’t say enough about Melissa and I highly suggest you give her a call. After the toasts and first dance, we sprinted up a hill to catch the last few rays of golden light as the fog rolled in through the valley. Mindy and Adam’s wedding was a great success and I can’t wait to hear what they are up to in the future.

Jasmine and Morgan

Jasmine and Morgan will be married this year up in Cambria. They are having a beach ceremony and then heading over to Cambria Pines Lodge for their reception. Jasmine booked me for their wedding a while ago and we didn’t have a chance to meet until this weekend for their engagement shoot. It was great to finally meet in person because we have been friends on Facebook for a while. Because of our interaction online, I felt like I was hanging out with friends I’ve known for a long time. Very cool.

Morgan and Jasmine have been together since High School. They are incredibly comfortable with each other and share a bond that comes from living a portion of your life together and going through many of the same experiences. I love photographing best friends. These two are truly wonderful people and I really enjoyed our evening wandering around San Luis Obispo looking for gorgeous light.
