Brooke + Brad : Navy-Inspired Admiral Kidd Club Wedding

Allaire12.jpg

It was so great to finally photograph Brooke and Brad's Navy-inspired Admiral Kidd Club wedding!  Ever since they booked me I knew it was going to be great, as it's always fun to photograph a military wedding on a military base.  I was also looking forward to how Brooke and Brad's designer, Cortnie from Canvas and Canopy, was going to transform the space.  Cortnie and her team came through in spades! Special thanks to Cortnie and her team for doing such an amazing job and for being great colleagues in a wedding with lots of moving parts.  Also a huge kudos to my second-shooter extraordinaire, Mike, for producing another outstanding body of work.

I shot Valerie and Dalton's Palm Springs wedding this past Saturday at the beautiful Horizon Hotel.  Palm Springs is the perfect location for any destination wedding, particularly those who love mid-century architecture and design. A big shout-out to Bre from Joyful Weddings and Events who did a marvelous job with the styling and coordination!

Courtney + Chris : Lake Almanor Destination Wedding

WERNER31.jpg

There are not enough superlatives to describe Courtney and Chris's Lake Almanor destination wedding.  From the family-owned 150-year-old barn at which the ceremony and reception took place to the most intricate of details (antlers!), it was an honor for me to document the wedding of such a truly special couple. We were pleased to work with power team of vendors:  Katy Higgins and her crew from Cosmopolitan Events flew up from Newport Beach to help transform a long-forgotten barn into a rustic oasis; Andrew and Paul from Paul Fenner Floral Designs did an amazing job with the floral and interior design, creating a look that was truly magical; DJ Mark Moreno provided nonstop tunes that kept the party rocking well into the wee hours of the morning; Brandon from Sound Image Entertainment did the lighting, creating an incredible ambiance so I could leave my remote strobes in the bag; Studio Light Room for the creative work on all the stationery; and the world-renowned filmmaker, Pete Santa Maria, got some great footage and will create an amazing story of the wedding (and thanks for the ride to the airport, bro).

Finally, thanks to my partner-in-crime, Lindsey Byrnes, for her incredible work.  Truly amazing as always.
