Mendocino Area Vacation Suggestions - Destination Photographer

A few weeks ago Stephen and I were in Mendocino for a beautiful wedding on the coast at the Heritage House Resort. The wedding took place overlooking the cliffs and had the most spectacular views. Like most of our personal work, we only brought our medium format film camera. This time in particular, we chose only to shoot on our new Hasselblad so I could get used to using it faster for our newborn sessions. This camera is super fun as it’s all manual, has no batteries or anything. It shoots in a unique 6x6 square format which is fun and creatively challenging.

A Season of Trimming

Left unattended, a vine will spend all it’s energy extending its branches. It will keep going until it literally has no energy left to produce leaves much less fruit. If you find a 20ft grape vine you’ll notice the first few feet may have fruit, then you’ll see leaves, and the end is all stick. A grapevine becomes a stick tree if it’s over extended. If you don’t prune the branch all the way back to it’s fruitfulness, then the vines capacity to produce fruit will be spent only to grow sticks.

Mission Santa Clara Wedding Photographer - José&Laura

We first met José&Laura in person at Zach&Tana’s destination wedding last year in Mexico. They were newly engaged and we had just met with them to talk about their own wedding happening the following year. One of the first things you will notice about these two is their joy and contagious smiles. After talking with them, you immediately feel like an old friend who is always welcome in their presence. Not everyone has that affect on people and we think this is a great character quality they both exemplify but also share as a couple.

New Orleans Five Year Anniversary Photos – Destination Photography

In just a few months, March to be exact, we’ll be celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary! We made a commitment when we got married that each year at least once, we would get in front of the camera. Whenever we have our yearly travel planned out, if everything aligns, we take advantage of having these photos taken all over the United States. Last year, we took them in Charleston, and this year while we were in New Orleans for The Rising Tide Leaders Retreat, we had them taken by our friend and talented photographer, Lauren Swann!

Memorable Monday – Happy February

Where did January go?!? It was as if we blinked and the whole month was over and now we’re into February. We’re all about celebrating the small accomplishments and also the big ones. January was a big month for Stephen and me not only for #trecreative but also in our personal lives. We celebrated ten years of dating, TEN years. I can’t believe I’m saying that! That makes me feel old, nostalgic and very grateful all at the same time.
