Sneak Peak of Jesse and Dave’s elopement at Thomas George Estate Winery (Baker Ridge) in Healdsburg from this past week. (this is an iPhone image for those who nerd out on that sorta thing with me)
I recently photographed a wedding where the minister was also a photographer – Nick Cahill – who just so happens to have this month’s cover of National Geographic! Nick was gracious enough to give me a few pointers on how to capture the Milky Way and even try some photos with the couple in them the night of the wedding.
So – on a camping trip last weekend to Meadow Lake – I decided it was time to practice a little bit and see what I could come up with – sneaking away from the campfire (photos to come from the trip!) I snapped off a few images (most were completely out of focus) – and I walked away with this:
Now I can’t wait to try this with a couple in the foreground!!!!
Love this image from Sky of XOXOVideo from one of this past weekend’s weddings on the Truckee River:
I would like to say that this happens all the time, but Lindsey and Frank surprised me – their need for adventure and passion for the outdoors almost puts my own to shame. Talking to them about their runs, mountain biking, backpacking, and passions as a whole had me wish we lived closer so I could add more adventure buddies to my list.
And not only are these two all about a good adventure, a ton of fun to hang out with, completely laid-back, and really kind hearted – they are totally down with throwing a GREAT party to celebrate with their closest friends and family members. It was tough to say no when Lindsey told me I should find a nearby hotel and party with them and their friends for the rest of the night!!! (next time…)
