Joanna and Brian’s fiesta-themed wedding at Sova Gardens in Sebastapol, California was light-hearted, joyful, colorful and SO MUCH FUN! I met Brian and Joanna in 2010 when the three of us worked together on a tall ship in the Bahamas. It was wonderful to reconnect with them again eight years later as a destination wedding photographer to document their wedding!
Joanna and Brian planned a laid-back wedding that matched their lifestyle in Sonoma County with Mexican-inspired design elements and food including talavera pottery, papel picado, churros, tacos, and margaritas. Tacos and churros?! Count me in!
When I asked them what they envisioned for their wedding day photography, Joanna and Brian emphasized their love of fun, bright candid photos that would reflect their spirited day. They also wanted to make sure that their guests were featured. Most of their wedding party and guests came from out of town, so they made sure to include unstructured quality tome with their loved ones.
Brian and Joanna – I am so honored to have witnessed the beginning of your adventure together eight years ago and again at the start of your adventure as a married couple. Thank you for trusting me to capture your love-filled day!
From the couple: “Cameron was truly the perfect photographer for our wedding events. Through lots of prior research we already knew that Cameron was an incredibly talented photographer; in addition, we also found her to be very easy to work with, super enthusiastic, and so passionate about what she does- all crucial traits in a wedding vendor. I was a bit nervous about being on display, but we immediately felt very comfortable with Cameron; her laid-back (but still highly professional) shooting style really helped us to relax and have FUN during our multiple sessions. We also appreciated that Cameron took the time to discuss our goals and expectations, and then tailored her services based on that feedback (for example, we wanted greater emphasis on spirited candid photos as opposed to ultra-posed portraits). Now that everything is said and done, we couldn’t be more overjoyed with the final product. Not only are the photos stunning, they also perfectly capture the atmosphere of the day and the personalities of everyone present. Cameron’s photos help us to relive all of the amazing memories from the best weekend of our lives, and for that we are very grateful.”
