Mr. and Mrs. Hendrickson | Fairview Napa | Napa Wedding Photographer

Happy Friday, friends!

I am so thrilled to finally get back to blogging and I thought what better way to kick it off than to share one of my most recent 2019 weddings from January! I had the privilege of meeting these two cuties while I photographed Joe’s sister’s wedding in fall of 2017 (to be blogged, I have quite a bit to catch up on). I was so excited when they reached out to me at the end of 2018 to inquire about finding their own wedding photographer! We got to talking and here we are — over a year later, a stunning Santa Cruz redwoods engagement session (to be blogged!) and a dream of a wedding day.

So thrilled to blog these high school besties turned lovers on this gorgeous Friday! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do!

Joe & Nicole, thank you so much for choosing & trusting me. Thank you guys for being such sweet clients turned friends and sharing in our joy of our baby girl on the way. I am so looking forward to spending more time with you both in the future!! xoxo

Mr. and Mrs. Moore | Secret Gardens | Bodega Bay Wedding Photographer

Evening, friends! I set a goal to get this blog post up by 9pm Wednesday night and here I am with 15 minutes to spare! After countless hours (juggling two jobs is hard and rewarding) I seriously am so excited to be sharing this wedding with you! But first, let me apologize now for any typos because this girl is TIRED. ;) 

Matt & Chelsey's wedding was one for the books - it included so many fun elements and was so intimately romantic! Chelsey totally pulled off her vision and the incredible venue, Secret Gardens in Bodega Bay, was the most perfect setting that fit so well with all of the thoughtful decor. We took portraits as the sun was setting and Chelsey even did a fun little model fashion strut (she is so beautiful, just check out those photos below!). Also, there happened to be a few firsts for me at this wedding including but not limited to: the Bride & Groom doing keg stands AND convincing me to do a keg stand (don't worry, I secretly whispered to the bartender to just pretend!).  By the end of the night M & C were cozying up and roasting up some smores together surrounded by family and friends - can you even imagine ending such a perfect day in a better environment?!

Thank you two for choosing me as your photographer & congratulations to you both! You two are such a perfect match and I feel so honored to have photographed this huge milestone in your lives!

xoxo Nicole
