Hinton Beau Pre Golf Course Wedding

Jesse and Malinda’s Beau Pre golf course wedding was absolutely beautiful. The guys started out the day with some early morning golf, while the girls all got ready together at a perfectly decorated private residence. The bridesmaids planned a surprise party bus trip to Round Table because Malinda loves Round Table Pizza. It was standing room only as Malinda walked down the aisle, and Jesse saw his beautiful bride for the first time. They visited with family and friends, ate a delicious steak dinner, followed by a chocolate Coscto cake (my fave) and Voo Doo donuts. Tephi Ziemke Henry did an amazing job as the wedding planner for the Hinton wedding and it showed in every detail. Jesse and Malinda got to focus on each other and their guests. It was a great celebration of love with friends and family.

Venue: Beau Pre Golf Course

Wedding Planner: Tephi Ziemke Henry

Curtis & Katie's Sunflower Rosina Vineyards Wedding

I photographed a wedding at Rosina Vineyards in July of 2018. Not long after, Katie contacted me about shooting her Rosina Vineyards wedding the following July. Her plans were for sunflowers everywhere. Fast forward one year, and one pregnancy later. This mama got married not long after having a baby! Big props to Katie! Planning a wedding while pregnant and then having a newborn is definitely not easy! : ) Curtis and Katie’s wedding was on a very warm Southern Humboldt day. It was filled with sunflowers, lots of love, and even more laughter. Tears were shed, amazing dance moves were recorded, and lots of laughs were had. I hope you enjoy viewing their photos! : )

Drakeford Wedding at Camp Bauer

Jeremy and Rene’ were actually neighbors in the small town of Scotia. A friend suggested that Rene try a dating site. She saw that a guy on the dating site lived in Scotia. She told him," “ I live in Scotia too. What street do you live on?” He answered, “Main Street.” Rene responded with" “I used to live on Main St." . He said, "Oh really? Where? " She answered "Across from the fish hatchery". He responded with "Rene' ?" A few months later, they decided to meet for drinks and have been together ever since.

Jeremy proposed on Christmas. Traditionally they do stockings first, but that particular year Jeremy wanted to do them last. When Rene’ pulled the ring box out of the stocking, Jeremy told her to read the tag. It said to “My fiance' “ The sentiment went right over her head. When she unwrapped it, he got down on his knee & the rest is history.

This beautiful couple loves to explore Humboldt County by fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, going on bike rides, and spending time with their two boys. No matter what they do together, they don't have to talk to connect. He is selfless, a good dad, and would do anything for his family. Rene still gets butterflies eleven years later. They are puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly.

I was blessed to capture both their engagement and their Camp Bauer wedding in Korbel (Blue Lake) California. They got ready at the Blue Lake Casino and were blessed with abundant sunshine for their picture perfect fall wedding. : )

Vianney's Southern Sunny Humboldt Senior Session

Vianney and I met in Southern Humboldt for her senior session. There are a couple of different reasons that I love to shoot in the southern end of Humboldt County. 1. The weather is almost always nicer than it is northern Humboldt. 2. I know of many great locations, all within a small radius of one another, so you can get many different looks in one shoot! We spend some time shooting in both Redway and Garberville and I think we got some great shots! : )
