Sonya's Magical Benbow River Session

I have always loved going to the river ever since I was a kid. There is just something so relaxing about laying in the sand until you get hot and then jumping in to cool off. Listening to the sounds of kids happily shouting and laughing, and the sound of the birds chirping,and water splashing. I have been wanting to shoot a river session for a while, so I was stoked when Sonya wanted to do one! The session took place later in the evening in Southern Humboldt near the Benbow Inn. It gets up in the 100's in Garberville, so it was a great way to cool off after a long, hot day. The water temperature was actually pretty warm and enjoyable after the sun had been beating down on it all day. It was pretty windy for our session, but it made for some more dramatic photos. Thank you wind. : )

Arbuthnot Wedding- Mt. Shasta Resort Golf Course

I shot Nick and Larissa’s engagement photos out on Paradise Ridge, near Shelter Cove.  I asked them where they were getting married and she said, “Mount Shasta”.  I assumed they were going to hire a photographer from that area, so I was so ecstatic when they asked me to photograph their destination wedding. Mount Shasta is a beautiful little town and their venue surely didn’t disappoint. The girls had their hair and make up done at a quaint little spa, while the boys got ready at the Mount Shasta Resort Cabins nestled next to a beautiful lake lined with pine trees and the ground blanketed in pine cones. My favorite moment  was Nick’s fake cry over his gift from Larissa.  The ceremony took place on the gorgeous Mount Shasta golf course with a beautiful view of the mountain. The only thing turbulent about their day was the wind. After a thoughtful slide show and a great dinner, the guests spent the rest of the night enjoying libations and staying warn next to the heaters in a white tent. Thank you Arbuthnot, Pogue, and Harrison families for such a beautiful day!
