Erica and Chad’s Wedding day was an absolute dream– so intentional and beautiful in every way– from to the smallest of details to the most heartfelt speeches. After having to postpone their wedding once already due to covid– they were SO excited to finally get to celebrate together with all of their loved ones.
Back in the summer, Jake and I drove to Yosemite to meet the two of them and capture their engagements which was so much fun and such a perfect way to get to know them before their wedding day. Checkout their adventure here! So come their wedding day, we were all super comfortable, and all the photos came so naturally.
I drove out to the vineyards to meet them and took photos of all their details– from her gorgeous lace dress to their vow books and the guys silly socks haha. Erica got ready with all of her girls in the most gorgeous room filled with the softest natural light pouring in. She walked outside to meet her dad, as they shared such a sweet first look together. He had tears in his eyes, and it was such a special moment! Then she had her first look with Chad in the vineyards nearby and we were all tearing up. They were so happy to see each other and so beyond happy that this day had finally come!! Their ceremony was intimate and small, and they setup a computer and phone so everyone else they loved could be apart of this moment too. It was so special. Then we ran to catch the sunset and capture their love as newlyweds!!! The rest of the night consisted on In-N-Out burger for dinner (are you kidding– so rad!?), the most intentional speeches by their loved ones, and dancing under the stars. It was such a special night to be apart of!
Erica and Chad– thank you SO much for trusting and investing in me as your wedding photographer. I’m so thankful for you two– congrats!!!
