BLOOMING NUPTIALS AT THE BERKELEY BOTANICAL GARDEN

 

there’s something very special about shooting on an overcast day at the uc berkeley botanical gardens.

it’s the most stunning place for a ceremony, where you are surrounded by the majestic beauty of the redwoods.

and, as always, we love teaming up with our beauty team to create some serious magic.

a special thanks to all the incredible vendors below…

ONLY LOVE IN OJAI

 

last month, we got to capture the absolute sweetest elopement in the hills of ojai, ca. we always love a wedding where everyone is involved in the magic.

from the soft pink florals to the homemade chuppah by the groom to the stunning dress made by the bride herself, this wedding was nothing short of a labor of love.

MAGIC LOVE IN MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY

 

nothing like getting to pair up with LOVE + WOLVES CO BEAUTY for a fun love session in the graveyard. anytime a couple wants to shoot in a cemetery we get super excited.

our bride (ash) grew up going on walks here as a baby with her mom and spent many weekend nights hanging here as a teenager.

this was our first time getting to explore the mountain view cemetery and WOW were we impressed! it was designed by frederick olmsted (the landscape architect who also designed central park).  

if you ever get the chance it’s at least worth a drive through it.
