I instantly adored Kelsey from the moment that I met up with her at a coffee shop in downtown Livermore on a rainy Friday afternoon. We chatting for what felt like forever about weddings and babies and everything in-between! I had been looking forward to their wedding since they booked me to be their photographer for their backyard wedding in Pleasanton- I just knew it was going to be the sweetest celebration! Earlier this year we met up in Pleasanton to take their engagement photos- which were a blast too! A few days before their wedding I went location scouting around Livermore, since that is where Kelsey and Peyton were going to take photos at before heading to her childhood home for the ceremony and all the celebrations that would take place afterward. I found the most beautiful spot near her house- with green bushes and towering Eucalyptus trees! It ended up being the perfect spot that was both beautiful and peaceful- and their portraits turned out amazing (If I do say so myself). I’m already dreaming up shooting there again. After they had a sweet small ceremony at a private residence in Pleasanton, followed by dinner and dancing- and when I was leaving as the sun was going down the party was just getting started! Thank you Kelsey + Peyton for allowing me to be a part of your special day- it was such a joy!
