Emily & Morgan… day before the wedding!

i photographed these two the day before they tied the knot.  she is a country girl at heart living in london.  she met him there. he’s from wales… passionate and desperately in love with her from day one.  emily (the bride) grew up going to her parents’ cabin in the heart of the redwoods in summerhome park (in sonoma county) every summer since she was little… swinging on the swings, playing in the river, running up and down those rustic wooden stairs and laying in the dirt looking far up above those tall redwoods at the stars.  and every summer she dreamed of her true love.  and then one summer just a few years ago she brought him there.  morgan (the groom) told a story at the wedding of his first summer there at the cabin… her dad took him out under the cabin to “fix some things” but really he was making sure he was good enough for his little girl.  turns out, he was just perfect. (their dreamy wedding photos soon to come!)

    I love the juxtaposition of their attire paired with the simpleness of the camp/lake feel. She is soooo Gywneth in that laughing canoe shot!

    I always loved your work, but you just seriously impressed me by making a propane tank look artsy! My dad painted them for years and I thought they were the ugliest things, until today :)

    These two look so in love and you have captured it beautifully. Love every single one and love how you take simple things like a row of mail boxes and turn them into works of art. You are a true artist with an incredible gift to see the beauty in the basic.
