Kevin & DanaRoaring Camp Railroads WeddingSanta Cruz, California

I love it whenever a past couple is at a wedding I’m photographing. It doesn’t happen a ton, but when it does, it’s amazing. Sort of feels like amidst this sea of strangers, you have some allies mixed in, rooting for you to do a great job. Dana and Kevin’s Roaring Camp Railroads wedding was that experience times a hundred.

I photographed Taylor and Tanner’s wedding the summer before – Dana’s sister – and OH MY was I stoked when Dana reached out and asked if I’d be willing to photograph her and Kevin’s! How rad! Same fam, same-ish group of guests. So. Much. Fun. It was like spending the day with old friends.

Thank you so much you two for inviting me into your family’s celebration again. Love ya both.
