Kennolyn wedding photographer Santa Cruz ::: Tom & Julia

Kennolyn wedding photographer Santa Cruz Mike Danen

Tom and Julia are two of the sweetest people you’ll meet. I had a blast with them on their engagement session at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Everything was perfect at this wedding. They actually first met when they were both camp counselors at Kennolyn Camp. If you haven’t heard of Kennolyn, it’s an absolutely gorgeous spot in the Santa Cruz mountains that’s famous for its awesome summer camp. It’s been around 60 years, one if the best in the West. My son attended camp there, and totally Loved it : )

Kennolyn is also a beautiful wedding venue- a stunning natural setting, beautiful hacienda, and great views. I love weddings there, and Jenn McIntyre and the professional staff provide excellent service. Connie J Moore Floral Design and Eventscapes designed all the beautiful flowers and decorative details. Tom and Julia, thanks again for having me!
