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!
