Julia + Tahnee’s Backyard Wedding in Nevada City

Weddings

Julia and Tahnee had it special from the start. They met in South America, studying abroad both learning to speak Spanish. They traveled through the continent together, first as friends and then as lovers. Fast forward five years, their love has only grown. Really. Relationships create a third presence, the “we” and J+T’s relationship is magnetic, disarming everyone that surrounds them. They act like they started dating 3 months ago yet you can sense the wisdom and maturity in their relationship that only comes from time spent and intentional steps, growing together. Needless to say, we cried way too many times at their wedding and it was one of the most emotional ceremonies we’ve ever photographed. At one point they called out to all their ancestors and all the persons that could not be there that day. J+T are about family. They’re about their friends. And they’re about the other. See their love for yourself:

Amanda + Joel’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement
Amanda and Joel contacted me a month or so before their elopement and I was thrilled. I had never shot an elopement before let alone at San Francisco City Hall. It was on a Monday, following up a long weekend of two weddings in two other cities so I was expected to be exhausted when it came to that day but instead it was deeply peaceful, calming and sacred experience. None of the pressure that can exist in a wedding was present, it was only two people fully focused on keeping the moment safe, intimate and authentic with four of their close friends. We had so much fun hitting up Golden Gate Park afterward and swapping favorite restaurants in t ...
