Lizzie & Juan Wedding - Santa Clara University

Remember that time I flew to Spain and did a wedding!? least I have photos that look like I did thanks to Santa Clara University! I just loved everything about this wedding - mostly the bride and groom because they are hands down the absolute sweetest but all the details were just exquisite to photograph, and any wedding that has a Catholic Mass with a kiss before the kiss is amazing in my book. I love that these two met as freshman at Santa Clara (Lizzie's room was directly above Juan's!) and then they said I do in the same spot. And...the topping on the wedding cake, Lizzie's parents were married there as well! What a special place with so many memories and meaning. Thank you for having us capture your gorgeous day and being your "Juan and only" photographer and for having a mariachi band (just love a good mariachi band!) Wishing you countless years of happiness together!

Thank you Emily for shooting with me - I feel so lucky to have you by my side for another wedding season, you're the absolute best.

Letters to Emmalyn

Dear Emmalyn,

How are you getting so big? My sweet are so full of life it makes my heart want to explode most days. Your personality is shining through more and more, and your just about the happiest tiny human I've ever met. I'm learning more and more how to be a mommy each day, and not every day is perfect, some days I still feel a little lost with no road map. But thats the thing...we make the path up as we go along, and there is something a little scary and unknown but something completely raw and beautiful. Thank you for figuring out this journey with me, I would want no one other then you by my side as we navigate this together. And at the end of the day when it seems a little un-perfect in a perfect way I look back in awe. it is is incredible to watch...I watch you in awe, as you grow, learn, laugh, and evolve into such a beautiful being. 

Love you my girl xo Mommy

Thank you Wild Wood Knits for this beautiful blanket and bonnet - we had fun doing photos in them!
