A Big Sur Wedding

April 14, 2018 - This was my very first large wedding I did alone for a couple I have known for a very long time. I was so honored when Sara asked me to photograph her & Joe's wedding.... and in the most dreamy place - BIG SUR!!

There's not much I can say other than what a fantasy this entire wedding was. Joe & Sara had been dating for 7 years prior to their big day and to see them tie the knot was beyond perfect. It was a wedding filled with the closest friends & family members, at a beautiful setting, in the perfect Central California coast weather. 

Trying to cut down the number of pictures from this insane day was HARD (to say the least), so what the heck - here's 200 of them!

Here's when the girls started their morning in the beautiful house located on the Ragged Point Inn property.

Time to dance the night away...

There was an incredible LATE sunset going on during this amazing dance party, so I decided to grab Joe & Sara to try and get some pictures! We experimented with an external flash (which I never use), so these next couple of pictures are super fun, candid, and grainy (they remind me of the film pictures you used to get from a disposable)...
