I have a lot of catching up to do! The summer has been flying by and I’ve been busier than ever. I took a few days off for a little r&r with my family and now I’m ready to catch up on my blog. I photographed this lovely family wedding at Shadowbrook last month.  The couple’s children were in the wedding party and we decided to meet early to take family portraits.

Before the wedding ceremony we met at their hotel at  the Inn at Depot Hill. What a lovely bed & breakfast! The light and decor are amazing. The perfect place for a honeymoon, destination wedding or a stay-cation.

The newlyweds each have 3 children and now they are one big happy family. Check out these smiles!

The ceremony was at Shadowbrook over looking the Soquel Creek. A lot of people like Shadowbrook because it’s a pretty place and it has a sideways elevator. I like it for the food and wine selection!

The other night as I drove home from a beautiful wedding, I realized I was on a roll. It seems like every wedding I’ve photographed in the last few months has put me in contact with so many nice, kind hearted people who know how to celebrate! Not only the couples and their families but also the other vendors they have hired.wedding at Radonich Ranch

I think these images from Chris & Lora’s wedding at Radonich Ranch express that. Maybe that’s one of the reasons I’m so fond of some of these new favorite photos.

MOB and MOGNew favorite photograph; The Mothers. Sometimes referred to as the MOB and MOG. I think they had a great time:)

Barn decor by Eventscapes, Ltd.New favorite venue photograph; The Lounge. Eventscapes did a marvelous job decorating the barn!

Summer beach weddings are very popular on the Monterey Bay and one of my favorite venues is the Monterey Plaza Hotel.

You never know if it will be cold and foggy so when it’s warm and sunny the celebration is even more special.

I remember when my husband asked me to marry him 20 years ago. Our first plan was to elope. We planned on jumping in the car and driving to California and getting married on the beach somewhere with a beautiful view. Like many couples, we changed our plans so our family and friends could could help us celebrate. There is a lot to be said for a small wedding. Less stress and fewer details make for a more relaxed ceremony!

at Lone Cypress

 Lately I’ve been photographing a lot of smaller weddings with couples from all over the world who come to the Monterey Bay to elope. Sometimes they choose this area based on a photograph or one of my blog posts. A couple of weeks ago I photographed this sweet elopement at Lone Cypress on 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. Ashley and Roberto travelled here from Pennsylvania.

    Rebecca,

    Your elopement photos are fabulous and it’s always such fun to officiate a wedding where you’re taking the photos. LOVE the purple flowers, too!

When trying to figure out where to shoot an engagement session, I always ask my couples where they were engaged and what they like to do on dates. For Carly and Patrick’s engagement session we decided two elements were important, nature and fire.

We started our session at this funky vacant lot. Every time I come here I discover a new strange detail like the stars in the brick work.

We jumped in my car and headed North up Highway One to Davenport for a campfire. Patrick is a fireman and I’m guessing a former boyscout or lego master by the way he built the fire. Roasting marshmallows is a nice way to end  a fun portrait session!

Congratulations on your engagement, Patrick & Carly! I’m looking forward to your wedding in August!
