Jess and Wil: Oakland California Wedding

Seriously...where do I start? Thank you Jess and Wil for being such wonderful friends to me. I hope we can still go to Ramirez at midnight for horchata and tejanos when we are all back in Rexburg. Just because you are married doesn't mean you can't hang out with me anymore....I'm serious...

Anyways...I was honored to photograph/be in your wedding, although it was very strange having to be in pictures as well as take them. I have never had to see through my tears AND my viewfinder so many times in one day. Saturday was the beginning of a new family. Your family! And that is the most exciting thing in the world. I'm so proud of you! I know how happy you make each other, and I wish you all the best in the world!



 Thank you Kari Osterhout for helping me with the bridesmaids shots!

 FYI, this angle is difficult to accomplish in a pencil skirt.

 Wil's family always takes a heel click picture on the kid's wedding days, it's tradition!

 Heel click attempt #2...


 I have never seen Jess so choked up, it was so sweet. 

 Fun fact: The California golden poppies featured here are the state flower of California! NO WAY!!!?

 Such beautiful details EVERYWHERE!

 And then the DJ got the party started! Woot woot!

 Katie caught the BOUQUET!!!!!!    Say WHAT?!?!?!?!

I almost got set a fire walking backwards through a tunnel of sparklers, but it's cool, my job is just super dangerous and awesome.
