When I got an inquiry to go to California and photograph this beautiful friend of mine and her now husband as they “eloped”, if you will, into the Redwood Forest, I was filled with excitement! I’m not going to front – It’s a legit place to be. I was very ecstatic to bring my love along to explore the beautiful state of California and to cross off the Redwoods from his “bucket list”. Lisa & Akili’s big day was a monumental one, it was a day where my love for Kevin, my friends, my passion for my photography, and my re-discovered childlike love of adventure collided in the middle of nature. Literally, there were 6 of us in the forest when they stood hand in hand: the couple, Kevin and I, a friend of the couple, and the officiant. All you could hear in the tranquility of the ceremony was dew dropping in applause of the vows being spoken. It was our honor to serve Lisa and Akili on their day. This is one wedding that can be written-in with the word “unforgettable”. I wish you both the best of all things in life, love, and faith! I’m so happy to have your wedding as the first that I share on my blog!
