Sometimes you prepare for rain, expect rain, and instead get nothing but blue sky. In the days leading up to Calla and Jo’s wedding, the forecast looked wet. We came up with a rough plan in case of rain, but it didn’t vary so much from the clear day plan. When I arrived at the house in Stinson Beach where getting ready was taking place, Calla and Jo were enjoying the beautiful day and doing their hair and makeup together. There was Cowgirl Creamery cheese in the kitchen and a loaf of local bread. Once Calla and Jo were ready, we heading up to Mount Tam where their wedding guests were dropped off via yellow school buses. A progression to Trojan Point soon followed. There was music, singing, toasts, and Calla and Jo married each other (no officiant). After some pictures among the Serpentine rock formations, we heading to the Stinson Beach Community Center for Hog Island Oysters and beautiful food by Fork Full of Earth and the live music of Qinn Deveaux and his band. Such a wonderful day.

2017 was a strange year. The overall level of uncertainty seemed unusually high. There were fires and floods in California, and wacky politics everywhere. As crazy as last year felt, when I look back at the people I worked with and the way they gracefully danced with uncertainty, I feel nothing but love. After many years of shooting weddings and working with couples and their friends and families, I am still stoked about what I do. Here are 100 images from last year.
Fancy food, a beautiful location, nice clothes, great music, yummy drink, and pretty details certainly make for a good looking wedding. Grace and Carl’s wedding at Headlands Center for the Arts had all those things and more, but most importantly, they had great people at their celebration. Inviting fun loving folks to your wedding is really the best way to insure a fun party and great memories. Grace wore a jump suit instead of a dress. Their friend Bri from Lover Bee Botany did the fun flower/ foliage arrangements. I set up a self serve photo studio for guests. The Dexter Lake Club Band flew out from New York and rocked the dance party. At the end of the night Gillibus brought in a fleet of tricked out party busses to bring guests to the after party. This was an epic event with no lack of great people.
