rustic barn

Yesenia + Daniel


What an absolutely beautiful day this turned out to be. When yesenia and daniel said they wanted to have their engagement session on a beach, we knew just the place to take them. There are very few places in northern california that have prettier beaches than carmel by the sea. With all the rain we'd been having then, we decided to meet up on a Tuesday evening because it was the only day we could see that showed sunny skies. When the day of the session did arrive the weather still called for sun but to our surprise it started raining about half-way down to Carmel. Bummer right? Although we were bummed about the rain, We stayed in good spirits and prayed for a break in the clouds. And just like always, the man up stairs came through for us. as you can see, the 90 mins we spent shooting on the beach were rain drop free. Everything turned out perfect!! we all had such a good time laughing and being silly out at breath taking Stewart's Cove. These two crazy kids were nothing but fun. check out some of their awesome engagement photos below. 

Oh and we can't forget about this one... we weren't kidding when we said we all had fun. LOL!! 

Jennifer + Jacob


This was our first time visiting The Robinson Family Ranch for a wedding. The ranch is located about 20 minutes east of Manteca in the country side of Oakdale. The grounds are vintage, green,  and full of lush almond trees. The ceremony was held in a garden beneath a beautiful 100 year old oak tree. The ranch with it's rustic barn was perfect for their cowboy boots and mason jar theme.  Everything from the floral arrangements to the custom made wedding cake was beautiful. And to top it off Jennifer stunned in her mother's 30 year old vintage Gunne Sax dress. Check out a few of Jenn and Jake's beautiful wedding photos below.
