Carmel, California


Lisa & Alex

A girl from South Africa and a boy from Canada in the hills by the California sea.

I knew the bride and her family two decades ago in South America.  Our families were friends there; the bride’s younger sister and I were the same age.  We kept in touch the way people do now, mostly online, and when Lisa and Alex got engaged, they got in touch.  Photographing this wedding was a dream for me, not just because it was in one of the most beautiful places on earth, or because Lisa and Alex share the kind of love that it is always a privilege to photograph, but this wedding somehow more personal because I’d known Lisa and her family so long ago.  Almost every wedding pulls at my heart strings at one moment or another, but this one was a wallop of a day, and my heart–and camera–were totally swept up in every moment.
