Getting to photograph all the different pieces of a couple's love story is truly so special. I was lucky to be there when Michael proposed and am so ansty to photograph their wedding next month but this engagement session is holding me over until then! We headed up to Lake Tahoe with friends for the weekend and the three of us snuck away over to Donner Lake for this sweet and snuggly session. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see the unbelievably beautiful ring that Michael picked out! 

Cass House Cayucos | Wine + Dine Event

YOU GUYS. This event was my actual dream. After photographing Adam + Devin's wedding here in March, The Cass House invited me back to photograph their first Winemaker's dinner. Their head chef, Cory, partnered with the winemaker at Aaron Wines to create the most perfect menu. savory sourdough donut balls dusted with onion powder and served over Fondue.... braised beef that melted in your mouth, served over the most perfectly creamy mashed potatoes... my mouth is watering just thinking about it. If you're ever in Cayucos, or anywhere near SLO county, you have got to head over to The Cass House and enjoy a meal at their restaurant or bakery. Big thanks to their Senior Coordinator, Jenna, who coordinated this perfect event.

This babe is one talented wedding planner with gorgeous taste and an equally gorgeous home up in the Oakland Hills, so when Andria asked me to do a home session for her I was thrilled! I met Andria about a year and half ago when one of her clients hired me to photograph their wedding and it's been such a fun time getting to know her! I absolutely love getting to make friends in the wedding industry, it makes working them that much more special! Can't wait to share the photos from the wedding Andria and I just worked together but in the meantime, enjoy these beauties and definitely check her out if you're looking for a wedding planner!

It's not often that I can walk into a wedding that I am second shooting for another photographer and leaving feeling like I've known the couple for so long! Dylan + Brooke's gorgeous backyard yard wedding in Westlake was intimate, emotional and, actually, perfect. The vintage rentals were an elegant touch and that perfectly arranged bouquet in soft blush and bright pinks was to die for. You have to check out their feature on Ruffled blog to see more details from the lead photographer, Lillywhite Photography. Shout out to Michelle for having me second shoot this unforgettable wedding.
