Alysia and Jayson are a wonderful photography duo here in town and they recently celebrated their anniversary so we got together to capture some updated portraits of them together. The elements were in our favor and we got a sun shower, a double rainbow and one of the most beautiful pink sunsets I’ve seen in months so we took full advantage of shooting all of them. There was even a school of dolphins playing off of the sea wall and I left the session feeling giddy at what we had captured and blessed to live in such a beautiful city – even if it is much too humid. Here are a few from their fun session  esther louise couples portraits 1esther louise couples portraits 1westher louise couples portraits 10esther louise couples portraits 9esther louise couples portraits 8esther louise couples portraits 6esther louise couples portraits 5esther louise couples portraits 4esther louise couples portraits 3esther louise couples portraits 2esther louise couples portraits 13esther louise couples portraits 11

Napa is a magical place. With the sprawling hills bursting with grape vines, the perfect cool crisp air and the breathtaking golden light each sunset brings it was the most lovely place for this romantic wedding. Shannon and Nick said their vows overlooking a gorgeous vineyard and then danced the night away in celebration in a magical estate cave. Not only was the day incredible to photograph for the scenery and beautiful details, but they were one of the most sweet and heartfelt couples I’ve ever worked with. There were many tears of joy shed and it was the sweetest thing to witness. What an honor to capture this day, here are a few of their special moments:

    Thank you so much for capturing true essence of our Daughter and Nick’s Wedding.. We LOVE these pictures! You are gifted !ReplyCancel

I have a delightful wedding to share with you today.  The bride’s mother spent months and months collecting gorgeous antique china and statement pieces for decor and the final result was spectacular. I couldn’t get enough of their details from the wooden invitations, to her blush pink wedding dress and the cold stone creamery desert station; every last little detail of their wedding was carefully made, collected and planned and it was a dream to photograph. Becca and Keith are such a joyful fun couple, their happiness was infectious though out the day and I’m so thrilled I got to document their beautiful love story. Here are a few images from their lovely day:
