Put Big Sur on the top of your list. What list you ask? Any list will do, but your “Places to Get Married” list would be a good place to start. Mark and Jordan’s beautiful Glen Oaks wedding will go down as one of our favorites, I’m sure. Hidden beneath the redwoods of Big Sur is a fun little venue and restaurant called Glen Oaks. We were fortunate enough to stay the weekend and we loved every second of the Thompson’s beautiful wedding celebration. Also, they had a mac and cheese bar. Put that on your list as well.

The Luo’s Nestldown Wedding Video


Louis and Vincy’s wedding was straight out of a fairytale. The Luo’s Nestldown celebration was perfect in pretty much every way. Nestldown is among the best venues Northern California has to offer and the weather was beautiful. Our portrait time with the couple, among the redwoods and warm light, created some pretty amazing images. We had an amazing time with the couple and are grateful we could help capture their beautiful love story.

Remember season 3 of American Idol? Well, of course you do. Forget Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia and William Hung, this was the season where Derrick Olivera (yes THE Derrick Olivera) made it to Hollywood and was among the top 25 contestants. He probably would have won that season, but he had his eyes on a bigger prize: Laura Patajo. Laura is the bride equivalent of winning American Idol and the couple’s wedding at Leal Vineyards was as beautiful as an TV show or movie. William Hung could not be reached for comment.

Jenn and Scott chose the perfect day in July to get married. Sure, it was warm, but the weather and setting were about as beautiful as you can find on a summer day in Northern California. To be honest, the golden hour shots were among our favorites ever. We had a ton of fun with the Huang’s and hope many beautiful summer days are in their future.

When she was little, Elaina used to sing “Someday My Prince Will Come” and on July 2, 2017 the bride married her prince, Cole. The setting was beautiful and the couple was about as in love as two people could be. Also, venues don’t get much more spectacular than Chateau St. Jean. Seriously, it’s pretty spectacular.

Things we love: live music, good food, love and of course…Jordan and Julie. Those names just sorta go together huh? Turns out, the people fit together as well. We had an amazing time with the Boehler’s at the beautiful Campovida winery in Hopland, CA. It doesn’t get much better than a wine country wedding in the summer.

“You are the Starbuck to my Adama and the Sarah Koenig to my Ira Glass.” These were perhaps the most romantic things I have ever heard. For those who aren’t so inclined, that’s geek talk for “I love you” and it definitely resonated with us. Ian and Pam were made for each other and we were so lucky to help tell their story. After you finish watching their wedding video, you should go read the “Red Rising” series. It comes highly recommended from the lovely couple (us too!).

Loy said there are two things he has always wanted to do: have a drone follow him will he drives his boat super fast, get married, and have a baby. On a warm June Saturday in Lakeport, Loy accomplished two of those goals (hint: no baby…yet). Marissa and Loy are the type of couple who exude adventure, fun, and most of all, love. We had an amazing time helping capture their story and are confident these 2 will be amazing parents once goal three is accomplished.
