Laura + Erik {hitched in the desert}

It’s no secret that West TX is one of our favorite places to spend time. We make the trek any chance we get. This time around we had the privilege of documenting Laura and Erik’s beautiful wedding at the Gage Hotel, recently named Texas’ #1 hotel by Conde Nast. Laura and Erik are right at home in West TX, calling Big Bend National Park home with their two greyhounds, where they maintain the trail program for the National Park Service. Their friends and family joined them in the desert for a weekend of fun and celebration under the big Texas skies and it was perfect. Congrats Erik and Laura!

Katie + Andrew {Bear Valley, CA}

We jump at any chance we get to head to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, so when Katie contacted us about shooting her and Andrew’s wedding in Bear Valley, we were all in! Bear Valley is a special place for Katie’s family. Her great-grandfather built one of the very first cabins in the area and she has been spending time there with her family since she was a little girl. After Katie and Andrew said their “I do’s” we headed up to a beautiful overlook where Andrew proposed to Katie. We all had a great time celebrating with the happy couple! Congrats Katie and Andrew!
