Nestled in the hilltops of the beautiful Carmel Valley the rustic chic Holman Ranch was the setting for Johnny and Joanne's al fresco wedding celebrations. Johnny and Joanne are such a sweet and beautiful couple, you may remember them from their oyster engagement session at Hog Island Oyster Co. It's been such a wonderful journey capturing their love story as it unfolded and their wedding was the pinnacle of it all.
See more of their celebrations and read their love story in Volume 3 of Utterly Engaged on stands now.

One of my favorite aspects of destination weddings is that they are typically multi day events surrounding the couple being celebrated in a place they love. They allow the couple to create an experience for their closest family and friends sharing what they love most and spending quality time with everyone involved.
Johnny and Joanne gathered their closest family and friends together in Carmel Valley to enjoy an authentic lobster bake as an ode to Johnny's upbringing in New England. Guests from all over the world shared stories over corn on the cob with lobster crackers in hand. It was the perfect way to kick off their wedding celebrations...

The day after their wedding at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills I photographed Yvonne and Mo on the picturesque coast of Santa Barbara with the help of Joy Proctor. You can see more of their seaside session featured here on Once Wed.

In all the world, there is no
heart for me like yours.
In all the world, there is no
love for you like mine.
This shoot started as a spark of an idea a couple of years ago and remained dormant until the stars aligned and brought together the perfect team and the ideal publication to feature it. Together with Joy Proctor and The Knot we dreamt up a wedding celebration for two gentlemen beyond compare. The fashion styling genius of Danny Santiago brought their dapper personas to life and with our superb team we told the story of their organic black tie affair in Miami, Florida. We even had the pleasure to work with Kent (our rescue dog model) who at the time was up for adoption at the Humane Society of Greater Miami and has since been adopted! I am very honored to have this editorial featured in the The Knot Special LGBTQ Edition 2015 by Gay Weddings from The Knot. The issue is truly beautiful and I couldn't be more pleased to be featured amongst such wonderful couples and celebrations.
Our team flawlessly brought this shoot to life and I can't thank them enough for their
time & talents...
