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:

Ushi + John’s Indian Ceremony at Campovida
Ushi and John had pretty much every weather pattern you can imagine in a single day with rain and momentary bursts of sun peeking through the clouds by the end of the evening and they were completely positive and joyful the whole way through. They gathered around their family and friends and had a traditional Indian ceremony which yes, did include John riding in on a horse, but none of these traditions were just because they should; they were each intentional and inspired by the rituals and spiritual traditions of Ushi's family. We were so inspired by how incredibly heartfelt and genuine everyone was and we really felt like two radically diff ...

Liana and Brian have become good friends with us since their wedding. Experiences with them will do that. They're infinitely invested in the people around them and once they know you, you're in their life. We've spent nights sleeping on their couch, eating food in their kitchen and playing Settlers. Their wedding was a beautifully intimate and sacred ceremony, 28 people in field outside San Diego, soaking up the sunlight and running toward the mountains after their first kiss. They proved that bigger isn't better and they chose the less popular but more meaningful route for celebrating their marriage. We're so honored to witness and capture a ...
