Melissa + Jordan

MELISSA + JORDAN: LODI, CA WINE & ROSES

We absolutely fell in love with these two from the start. Melissa is impossible not to love... she's such a sweetheart. Although it was smoldering hot outside both Melissa and Jordan were great to work with. They never complained once as we escorted them all over their venue for photos (and trust us, yes we mean all over). We love the fact that they took our advice to heart and actually followed our planning guide (YAY that makes our hearts happy). They had a first look, her dress was ready on a nice hanger, her details were all in one place when we arrived, they were running on time, they chose a sunset ceremony time, their families were fun and dealt with our photography craziness with grace, not to mention how gorgeous of a couple they are, goodness it was just perfect. Their wedding took place in Lodi CA at the always beautiful Wine & Roses Hotel and Spa, the place is an absolute dream in the later summer months.  Check out some of their gorgeous sun kissed photos and leave them a big congrats below!!!

Evette + Ulysses

EVETTE + ULYSSES: RIPON, CA LUCCA WINERY

 

Although shooting in July definitely can be scary (like triple digit temperatures!) it also has a bright and sunny element that can make for some pretty stellar sunset wedding photos: the increased unlikelihood of a storm isn’t too bad either! From our first meeting at starbucks the chemistry the two of you had was off the charts. Couples that compliment each other as well as you two do are pretty rare. Evette and Ulysses, you two are simply magical. There are no other ways around it. Your love is like the sun, keeping those around you happily in your orbit. You are magnetic and make people around you want to get even closer. Thank you for the honor of capturing your first day as husband and wife. We hope you continue to foster love and happiness in your life because it keeps things beautifully unpredictable. We cannot wait to share your wedding collection with you! Until then, here are just a few of our many favorites :)
