This past summer, I dreamt of all the places I wanted to drive to and among those was Big Sur. I had heard great things about this beautiful place on the Central Coast. I wasn’t able to make it up there this Summer. But by some divine plan, I received an email from a girl asking me to shoot her wedding in Big Sur in November! After talking with Lisa on the phone, I was giddy and excited! I met Andy and their dog Norton for their engagement session, and was even more stoked to be apart of their day!
The beauty of this place had me in awe…
The ladies below are like two little schoolgirls. When they get together it’s nothing but giggles and good times. I was lucky enough to have photographed both Taylor’s family and Gemma’s wedding (one of my favorites), which made this wedding even more fun!
Lisa and the girls finished getting ready in a really cool wooden yurt at a private private estate nestled right above the Pacific Ocean.
Lisa, getting ready for the first look…
Gotta love these girls.
This wedding was beyond rad for many reasons. One being the gigantic, colorful pinata hanging from that tree.
Second being this amazingly crazy wedding party!
I must add, that in the midst of all this beautiful picture taking, we noticed we were surrounded by poison oak. Ha! But being the outdoorsy people that we are, we stayed calm and finished the pictures…then got the heck out of there!
Best groom gifts ever? The camping, nature loving girl in me is jealous.
The dance floor was off the chain (can I say that?) the ENTIRE night!
Andy and Lisa are huge Michael Jackson fans. Thriller came on and everyone went wild!
And what better way to end the night then with s’mores?
Thank you both for being amazing, real and so much fun!!
Lots of love to you both (and Norton too)!
