“He took me to a beach in San Francisco and he set his phone down to record , but I had no idea why until he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!”
It was very hot summer day at the end of July, over 100F. Impatiently to meet Erick and Stephany, a high school sweethearts I was driving to Mountain House Estate in Cloverdale, CA to shoot their wedding. The horizon was filled with fog from the wildfires burning in Mendocino County. Thankfully, when I got there the sky was crystal blue and the day was more than perfect.
The whole wedding day was very well organized by the very professional Lacey from Stacey Good Farms and Events . The wedding inspiration was white tulips with white tablecloths, very simple and very elegant. It was a big wedding, but my day was short. However, I was able to capture a little bit from the groom and bride getting ready, the entire wedding decoration, the family and friends portraits and we even had enough time to capture Erick and Stephany’s intimate photos in the picturesque garden of the Mountain House Estate. Moments filled with love, kisses, smiles and beautiful emotions.
I was so happy how everything was working out so perfectly that day that I even decided to stay a little after my work hours to capture S+E's first dance. It was the best lighting and I knew I was going to regret if I didn't capture this beautiful couple during that time of the day. And on top of it I ended up capturing some very raw emotional moments like the one of the bride’s mom.

I thought the garden was the perfect place for S+E photo session. As both are from Mexican origin I found the perfect colors symbolizing their culture.
