Derek + Phoebe | Backyard Wedding, Santa Cruz

There's not enough words to express my deep love for these two souls and the honor I felt to have been able to photograph their beautiful day. From the moment I got their first email, I knew they were my people. Over the months leading up to their day, Phoebe and Derek worked to make Phoebe's parents backyard in Santa Cruz their perfect venue. She got ready in her moms art studio and their vows were said under a old tree in the backyard. Their wedding was a celebration of celebrations, full of laughter and tears and the feeling of family. I couldn't stop smiling the whole way home, and I'm still smiling months later. D+P, from the bottom of my heart, thank you again for allowing me to photograph you two and welcoming me into your lives. xx
