Santa Cruz Engagement Session: Kathy + Noel

After being rained out last weekend, we set out to shoot Kathy and Noel’s engagement pictures on Saturday. It started out a little grey, but the clouds soon opened up and we were treated with beautiful afternoon sunshine along West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz. Kathy and Noel were so easy to work, making my job easy and making for some great photos.

I look forward to their wedding in December!

Stern Grove Wedding: Brendan + Meredith


On Friday night I shot pictures of a gorgeous wedding at Stern Grove.  Meredith looked perfect in her handmade gown, and the service was simple and sweet.  The cake was made by Meredith’s good friend Cara, and was one of the prettiest cakes I’d ever seen.  She did such a good job!

Chris and Heather!

This weekend I took some shots of the newlyweds Chris and Heather!

Chris and Heather both ran on the MIT track team in college, and reconnected after they graduated.  After dating for a while, they decided to take up a great opportunity to live in Tokyo for a year.  Before heading out, they decided to take the plunge and get married!  After a quick engagement, they got married in Heather’s apartment, with only her brother as a witness and a justice of peace to make it official.

They plan on having a full celebration upon their arrival back home from Japan!

A garden wedding in Pennsylvania: Wade and Melissa tie the knot!

In a small intimate ceremony, Wade and Melissa tied the knot at Jenkins Arboretum in Berwyn, PA!

There was a 40% chance of rain that day, but our fingers were crossed and we lucked out as the rain didn’t appear until late during the reception.  The arboretum was a perfect spot for a wedding.  The vows were taken in front of a beautiful white hydrangea bush.  It was a touching ceremony and the officiant Helen Collins was just delightful.

After the ceremony, everyone returned to the groom’s parents home, also in Berwyn, and enjoyed a larger reception.  It was a perfect continuation of the garden ceremony, because the celebration was primarily held on the deck under a canopy of huge oak trees.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
