I am starting to develop a real thing for small weddings. Super small weddings. I love them.
I love how the whole day is centered around one thing, the couple. The getting married part, the being in love part. That's all there is. It fills me up with so much satisfaction and excitement for what I can offer. It is also hard not to feel creatively energized when in a matter of four hours I get to shoot in the middle of redwoods, a field, a river and at the ocean. It was a photographic fairytale.
Also, absolutely fell head over heels for this couple. I wish every couple treated each other with the love and respect that these two did. Yes, they are young but so much wiser than so many when it comes to being in a respectful partnership. I learned so much from watching them love each other.
After getting ready at Glen Oaks and then the ceremony at Pfeiffer Beach at sunset...we headed to Big Sur Bakery where they invited me to join them for dinner. Allison and I couldn't stop talking. Dante joked that we were the same person. It did kind of feel that way.
It was all meant to be.
So honored to have been there to witness it all and capture all the soft perfect Big Sur light.
