Todd and Karie | Big Sur, California Wedding

This was a very special wedding to me, because Todd is my older brother! It was so great to officially bring Karie into the Ricard family (even though she's been a part of the family for a long time already). They have a beautiful daughter together, my niece Ruby who was ridiculously adorable in her own little white dress. Their day was an intimate gathering of their closest friends and family in Big Sur. I'm not going to say a lot here because I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves. It's gonna be a long one because there was just so much beauty in the day, rain and all.

Jiangxiao + Shuai | Madison Engagement Session

Jiangxiao and Shuai are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet. Jiangxiao got in touch with me about a month ago looking for an engagement photographer. He and Shuai are living and going to school in Madison, but will be getting married in China at the end of May! Shuai and Jiangxiao met in China while they were both in school, and when Jiangxiao came to the UW campus to pursue his phd, Shuai came with him.

It was fun to get to know them throughout the session and see how they got more and more comfortable in front of the camera. We started out at the UW Arboretum where Shuai has been volunteering since they moved here. She had some favorite spots, and luckily we had a beautiful sunny day (a bit chilly, but these two were troopers) to capture their love in such a beautiful setting. We ended at the UW Campus with just a few more pictures until they were all smiled out and we had more than enough gorgeous images. I'm so happy to have been able to get to know these two a little bit and to capture these photos for them in the places they have become so familiar with.
