When Ann sent me a message a few weeks before her wedding asking if I would come and take pictures of her guests as they arrived, I was ecstatic! After doing an engagement session with Ann & Craig, I couldn't pass up getting to be at the wedding of such an amazing couple. And then I begged her to let me stay and photograph their ceremony. And since she's so amazing she let me. Once again, thank you Ann for trusting me so much!
Ann & Craig got married at Villa de Sol d'Oro, a beautiful venue nestled in the hills of Sierra Madre. I've seen so many pictures of this beautiful venue which made me so excited to shoot there. And then I got there and saw how amazing they had it set up. In a word: Beautiful. No detail was left out.

This was the view from our backyard on August 30th.
About 30 minutes later we got a pretty cool show because the water dropping helicopter showed up!
But the fire just kept on burning....
At night you could really see the flames. It almost felt better then the daytime because you knew where the fire was. In the morning everything would be covered in smoke. It felt like the fire could be right behind your house and you wouldn't even know.
I'd like to thank all the wonderful firefighters out there who helped with the Station Fire. Without all of you many of us could have lost homes and our community would have been devastated. We can't thank you enough.
But my thoughts and prayers go out to the families in other areas that did lose everything. A family that worked at the camp that Doug and I met at were one of the families that lost their home. The rest of the camp survived, but their home did not. They have 4 of the cutest kids on the planet. So please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. They really need it right now.
On a happier note... I'll be back really soon with some announcements and more pictures of course! So stay tuned!
