Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, CA // Bill + Claire

Back in October, I second shot a wedding with the amazing and wonderful Katch Silva at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, CA. This was my 2nd time shooting with Katch and it was just as much a dream as the first wedding I shot with her. 

Bill and Claire were married in the redwood forest in the preserve and it was just SO DREAMY. The greenery and towering trees made for an absolutely gorgeous setting and their vows made everyone cry. I got to hang out with the guys before the wedding and photographed them all together prior to Bill marrying his dream girl - they were such a fun group (probably my favorite groomsmen I've ever shot - shh don't tell them!).

We ventured up through the hills to a lookout for their golden hour portraits and it was so on point. The photos speak for themselves. They are some of my favorite wedding photos I've ever had an opportunity to capture. Now I'm sitting here on this rainy, dreary Thursday morning dreaming about sunshine rays beating against my skin and the wind whipping through my hair. Soon enough, summer, soon enough! Anyways, here's some of my favorite moments from Bill and Claire's Santa Lucia Preserve wedding in the redwood forest! Enjoy!
