Brittany + Brandon Married // Walnut Beach Resort Wedding Photographer

Two years flew by! 

It was August 2015 when Brittany first connected with me about their 2017 destination wedding. It seemed so far away at the time, I was almost 8 months pregnant but already dreaming about a wonderful 'getaway' (in Wine Country, to boot!)  It's really difficult to call it work when you are lucky enough to photograph friends in a beautiful location. As luck would also have it, I attended a wedding at Walnut Beach in 2016 and was able to scope out the venue in person!

Leading up to the big day I loved working with Louise, the mother of the bride + wedding planning extraordinaire, as we sorted over the details of the timeline. Because of this I learned that the brides brother Tyler would be singing their first dance song - how special is that!? He was joined on stage with this girlfriend Amy Lin on the keyboard. We also chuckled over trying to remember the timeline as just a guideline - however, everything went off without a hitch and perfect timing. 

The groom + bridal party looked incredible, but the bride definitely stole the show in her stunning BLUSH dress - which happened to be another little secret detail I was excited about. To say the weather was a tad hot that day would be an understatement, kudos to them all for braving the heat for some amazing photo locations. 

Now, as a once-newlywed myself, I avoid trying to bug couples about babies. But if you know Brandon + Brittany at all you will know they are going to make the best parents one day. They are already great fur-baby parents to Cinnamon who joined us for a few photos in the nk'mip vineyard (where I also feel bad about us learning the hard way about Stinging Nettle lol)

Thank you both so much for having us there is capture this day!
