Sean + Stephanie – I had so much getting to know these two. They are my kind of people. Down to earth, kind-hearted craft beer lovers. One of the funnest memories from their wedding day was when I was photographing Stephanie opening her card from Sean. Turns out they bought each other the EXACT SAME CARD!!! How kismet is that?!?! Meant to be!
Also, my friends over at Side by Side Cinema posted their video of the beautiful day here if you want to see more!!

I’ve known Julie through my industry for years! I had always heard about the elusive Matt from Long Beach but wasn’t sure what to expect. Turns out he is super rad and make Julie laugh louder than I have ever heard her laugh. Which warms my heart of course. I’m excited for these two to start the next chapter in their relationship! We decided to shoot in Long Beach, starting in the exact spot they met – The Yard House! We ended up sipping beers at Ballast Point and being treated to the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen in awhile!
I’m so thrilled that Every Last Detail blog chose to feature this wedding today. Check out some more images (some different too!) over on their blog!

This elopement is a special one as Kate is my college roommate and very close friend! There was no way I was missing this celebration! Kate was never a traditional girly-girl and wanted something unique and fun for her wedding to Thad. They said this vows on a snowy hilltop surrounded by family. Ate a tasty brunch with a larger group of friends and family and ended the day with a brewery and distillery tour with the group! It was the perfect way to show their love for each other and the finer things in life – drinking! <3
