Mmmmm….this morning I’m just dazzled by this lovely California wedding, taken by our sponsor, Raya Carlisle. We’ve been long time fans of Raya’s work here at Once Wed  — and for good reason! Soft light, sweet love, elegant composition…what’s not to love?

I believe I have figured out how to create a safe of images to share- big and small, influential and delicious. I have created these safes with photographs – images I capture, which are influenced by my role as a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, an artist, and collector. And now, I crave to share them with you, my family, friends, fellow artists, and clients. I wish to share with you images I capture and hope they make you feel exhilarated, like all of our brilliant memories and of course, our hunts for more.

Raya is based out of California, but loves to travel! See more of her beautiful work on her blog and website!

I saved that picture of her ring to my computer… I just checked and it was nearly a year ago. And I have not stopped trying to find something close to it! I finally had to hunt down where I got the picture from, because I can’t seem to forget about this beautiful ring! If the bride is willing to share any info on it, it would be greatly appreciated!!!

This engagement session is unadorned and utterly enchanting. We can't get enough of the foggy air or the couple's remarkable love for one another. And the venue itself is pure magic!
