Last month, I drove down to San Diego to document Nicolas and Stephanie’s wedding at the Los Willows Wedding and Event Estate.  I had photographed Nic’s sister in 2010 and a friend of theirs in 2012, where I saw them again, and now this wedding.  I think I’m becoming a part of the family here. They have been incredible to me and I appreciate the kindness.  And while Nic and Stephanie wanted to enjoy their wedding day, they also gave me freedom to be creative and pull them out at certain times, which is always a plus when we get ideas.  The parked Rolls Royce was just asking to be photographed, and we waited until later before taking those images.   Thanks to Kevin Holding for coming along and assisting, and for the wonderful staff at Los Willows who kept the evening going.   Here are just a few images from their celebration.

My actual last wedding of the year was a few days before Christmas in Auburn, California, and it was cold and raining. I received a phone call in less than a month before Matthias and Jennifer’s wedding to capture their special day. I try and not book much in December to spend more time with family, but since it was a shorter wedding and they were really nice people, I jumped on the opportunity.  We spent sometime downtown Auburn at the old historic Methodist church before and during the ceremony.  After that, we photographed the bride + groom photos, and they really wanted a photo with this important airplane near the reception venue, which was the Ridge Golf Club.  We only had a few minutes for a photo because of time, and it was still cold (Jennifer was wrapped in warm blanket to keep warm).  Once we finished the photo, it started pouring rain, a sign that we were done  Then we enjoyed a lovely reception with warm hearts and most definitely a warm venue at the Ridge. Enjoy a few images from their wedding day! historic church downtown wedding auburn, ca. auburn wedding photography downtown wedding photography bride and groom auburn california grass valley wedding photographer Grass valley wedding photography pictures downtown auburn weddings venue location rustic The Ridge golf club wedding photographer airplane picture auburn wedding photographer at ridge golf club events center
