We were really focused on making our wedding day about us as opposed to getting wrapped up in it being our ‘wedding day’. We made sure to add personal details – a friend made two types of home brew beers with our pictures as the stickers, we had a cousin conduct the ceremony, and we let the location not be overwhelmed by too much design and elaborate decoration. I bought a lot of the decorations from Etsy, handmade some things myself and had potted plants as opposed to cut flowers. We also had a flashmob dance routine that everyone knew except my husband – so fun!! As a result, we had subtle details that made it undeniably our wedding, without feeling forced. The day seemed very natural and had a great flow as opposed to a set regimented schedule of events.

The detailing in their photographs is absolutely gorgeous! From the stones used for the table place settings to the close up shots of the textured tree bark. Absolutely stunning!

I live in Ireland and it amazes me how similar the landscapes are here to Ireland, i would have imagined that they would be completely different – I love the realness – rawness of the wedding shoot. To me that’s what is all about and that’s how images should reflect

Beautiful! I am planning a wedding in Big Sur now, but it is challenging because I live in Houston, TX. Can you provide the information for your location?
