Even though I left San Francisco hours in advance, in preparation to sit in Highway 17 traffic on my way to Sand Rock Farm in Santa Cruz, I still barely made it on time for Lewis and Lauren’s wedding. Traffic is just one of those things that gets the best of me, so I was trying to calm down while parking my car. However, the minute Lewis greeted me at the door, his beaming smile took all my nerves away instantly. He was beyond excited to marry his love, Lauren, and that was all that mattered.

Documenting this day was a highlight of this year’s wedding season for me. Not only did Lewis and Lauren plan the most gorgeous wedding at a beautiful location with all the best details, but they made sure all of their family and friends enjoyed themselves to the fullest. They even planned a choreographed  first dance to “Is This Love” by Bob Marley. And if you know me, Bob Marley’s music just gets me every single time.

But the best part of the evening was not planned by Lewis and Lauren specifically. It was listening to their loved ones toast them during dinner. Their beautiful words moved everyone to tears, and it was clear how supported Lewis and Lauren’s marriage would undoubtedly be.


Lewis and Lauren, it was such a pleasure to document your wedding day. Cheers to a lifetime of love!
