Family Fun and Foto

Thanksgiving week at the beach in Pescadero.

Fun to hang out and explore (with the photographer in tow)...!

The young boys love to jump around and have total trust in their dad to catch them!

Serendipity Wedding, Todos Santos


Small weddings are fun! Serendipity is nearby the beach and also has a pool,
large patio spaces and niches everywhere. We walked to the beach in the late afternoon
when the light was a yellow, dusty rose color.

Beautiful Beach Wedding!





Beach weddings are popular around Baja Ca Sur of course. 
Lots of beautiful places to have a ceremony, if it is not too windy. 
You never know what kind of sunset and light you will have however!
As a photographer you learn to make the best out of what the day has to offer. 
A beach walk after the ceremony is a good way to get some sweet images.
This ceremony had a ring around the sun just before the ending kiss.  
And then a pastel sunset with wispy clouds was a welcomed sight. 
 Lovely couple!

Timeless Bride at Rancho Pescadero



I'm partial to lace and traditional beauty. Rachel, whom I photographed last weekend looked 
as if she could be from any era and still be gorgeous with a timeless beauty. Also fun 
and romantic, we had a good time photographing at Rancho Pescadero!

Wedding at Sunset, Rancho Pescadero



It was pouring rain and we even had lightening a few days leading up to this wedding. 
It happily cleared up 'right before' Saturday afternoon so the beach wedding was on!
The sunset had the most interesting clouds, more pink and blue than normal.
Baja is know for fiery reds and orange sunsets and its purple mountains at dusk. 
So we were lucky to have puffy clouds and warm weather to help celebrate with 
Rachel and Dan's happiness!

Beautiful Flower Girl


A wedding is a special day to many besides the bride and groom. Children sometimes are just as excited and happy as the couple. The key to photographing them is to let them open to you naturally and not to force anything. Once they are comfortable and happy they do not mind being photographed. The last wedding I did had a sweet 5 year old that was fun to be around. I could have spent all day with her!  Luckily there was time to play around and get some shots before the wedding started. Turns out she is quite the ballet dancer! Her sister did not want to be photographed at all.

January 1st Wedding at Serendipity, Todos Santos



Thanks to Nicole and Mike for being such a great couple to work with,
so easy going, fun and radient! Serendipity Boutique Hotel was the perfect place 
for a small to medium wedding with many niches to photograph and lounge.
                     The beach is only a short walk through the field and the food is fantastic!
