Tara & Hector :: Married :: Santa Cruz Wedding Photography :: Scotts Valley Wedding Photography

This wedding is very special to me, not only is Tara my cousin (and Hector now is as well) but my son was one of the ring bearers!! Its always fun when the family gets to come together for such a wonderful event and its so humbling that they asked me to be their photographer. Now knowing my family and that this was a wedding that I would like to enjoy as well, I did bring along another photographer to help me throughout the day so I could enjoy myself a little (and be in some photos!) Thank you Scott from Scott Mosher Photography for  coming out and helping me at this awesome wedding!

Even though we are in a SERIOUS drought here in California the lack of rain allowed my January weddings to have some awesome weather! I never would have thought that we would have had about 70 degree weather for this wedding when it was in the planning stages. Luckily we did and everyone who had to travel to the wedding was able to make it and return home with no weather related issues. It was great to meet so many of my cousins friends as well as her new family which came up for the wedding from Chile. Tara has been living in Chile for a few years now and that is where she met her new husband. He is a great guy and fits in perfectly with our family. We all are very happy that Tara found Hector.

Enjoy the images!

Heather & Josh :: Engaged :: Helwig Winery Engagement Photography :: Plymouth Engagement Photography

Its no secret that I love doing engagement sessions. These sessions are where I get to know my clients and they get to know me. The engagement sessions is not just to give my clients more photos but it is the perfect way us to become more comfortable with each other and that makes for better wedding day photos. For Heather and Josh’s session this was a little different. I have known Heather for quite some time since she has been a bridesmaid in 2 weddings that I have photographed. We already were comfortable with each other and she knew exactly how I worked. This was however the first time I met Josh, but that didn’t matter. From the first photo we were all having a great time and it was just the beginning of the day. We made our way from the tasting room with wine in hand and worked our way though the beautiful Helwig winery putting Heather and Josh in their element. (This winery was actually where they got engaged) I couldn’t have asked for a better day with these two, we had fun doing photos but we also just had a wonderful day talking, laughing and just enjoying each others company. It is sessions like these that really make me excited for my clients wedding. I can’t wait for October!
