Kennolyn wedding photographer Soquel :: Tom & Julia

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!

Meet Tom and Julia, two very sweet people, totally in Love. They’re getting married this Summer at Kennolyn, a gorgeous venue up in the redwoods overlooking Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay. I love weddings there! Kennolyn is also an awesome Summer Camp, (my son is camping there this Summer). And that’s how Tom & Julia met- they were Kennolyn camp counselors! Very cool.

Julia grew up in Santa Cruz, so we decided to head down to the Boardwalk and take in some of the local flavor. What a fun session, I had a blast. As you can see, we made some nice images ; ) These guys were so creative, and up for anything!

Thanks mucho guys, I can’t wait for your wedding day!

Have a great week!

“You work, you play, and then one day, Love just happens.”

You all remember Dan & Christina from their rockin’ engagement session a while back, well they took their wedding to a whole ‘nother level of Awesome! It helps that they held their wedding at the ever gorgeous Nestldown in the Santa Cruz mountains- absolutely a beautiful venue. They brought their Love, their creativity, their FUN, and their beautiful family and friends, and the result was simply amazing. What a great day! From the amazing food by Poetry in Motion, the beautiful & tasty cake by Jen’s Cakes, to the elegant and professional service provided by Brooke Greene and her staff at Nestldown, everything was perfect!

Dan & Christina, I have loved working with you, it has truly been a pleasure. Thanks so much for having me! Big ups to Melissa for all the help!

Have a great week!

Say Hi to Heather & John! You might remember their stylish engagement session a while back. What a pleasure it has been working with these guys, they are so happy and in Love! Their E-session rocked, and their fab wedding at Tarpy’s Roadhouse was total awesomeness! So many cool details, stylish, artistic touches, and fun family & friends. Heather’s bouquet was really one-of-a-kind amazing! I love how the pictures came out, way too many great ones to post here.

Really beautiful wedding guys, way creative. I loved the doves by Central Coast Dove Releases, the Rolls Royce, and the gorgeous brooch bouquets by Nicki DesRoches. Everything was perfect! Thanks so much for having me, it’s been a blast! Props to Melissa for the 2nd shooting with style.

Have a great week!

Meet Dan & Christina! Two of the sweetest folks you’ll ever meet. I’ll say it again, I have the best clients! Got a little behind on the blogging, so these guys are actually already married! They just had an absolutely gorgeous wedding at Nestldown. Those pictures are coming to the blog any day now!

Being huge San Francisco Giants fans, and needing some San Francisco flava, we spent the afternoon in the City. I had a blast! Dan & Christina, thanks so much for a fun session, and for being such a pleasure to work with.

Thanks to Melissa for all of your help! Have a great week, everyone!
