Will & Kim | Union Hill Inn, Sonora

I have been waiting to post this wedding for far too long…

Will and Kim have an obvious bond, their love for each other just comes out in every photograph.  I was truly touched by their ceremony, their family and friends on that day.  This kind of love is just contagious!  Will and Kim, you guys are one of the silliest, most beautiful couples I know!  Thanks for letting me be a part of your day! : )  Congratulations!

Billy & Cesly | Married

Cesly was my next door neighbor for 10 years, we were kids together.  Billy’s sister was a best-friend of mine in grade-school.  The barn in the above picture is right around the corner from our col-de-sac.  The house this wedding was photographed in, right next door to my childhood home.  All that combined made for a day so special, I can’t put it quite to words.  Thank you Cesly for asking me to be your photographer and congratulations on your marriage and beautiful family.  You are all so amazing!

Love you guys : )

Cesly - Aww Ellie!! We are so happy you were there to capture our wedding! :) Thank you so much!

Jarred & Elissa | Engaged & Married!

This summer I had the privilege of photographing a very dear friend’s wedding – all the way out in Michigan!  I am in LOVE with Michigan, it’s rolling green hills, farmlands and beautiful old houses.  Such a gorgeous place to visit and a very romantic location for a wedding!  And to top it all off, my sweet friend from college, Elissa, was just the happiest and sweetest little bride!  Congratulations Elissa and Jarred!

aaaand  the wedding day…. : )

I love the moment a bride and groom first see each other, the photo above almost made me cry the first time I saw it (I say ‘almost’ cause I’m not an easy crier : ) ).  The true love radiating from this couple is strong, and it makes me so happy!
Congratulations you two!
