Wow, this blog post has been a long time coming! Kelsey and Patrick were married last December. I was honored to be asked to photograph their beautiful, Santa Cruz Mountains, woodsy wedding. I knew right off the bat that these “first look” photos were pretty special! It had been drizzly and grey all morning, but once the beautiful bride was ready to step outside to see her groom for the first time on their wedding day, the angels sang! The sun peeked out, and the nervous groom took his place at the bottom of the redwood steps. I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story from this magical, sunlit spot just up the road from where they, moments later, exchanged rings and became husband and wife. I’ve dedicated this blog post to these “first look” images, and will follow up with more from their beautiful, Christmastime themed wedding very soon.
