Dana Powers House Wedding Photos

I had photographed Ali and Ryan’s destination wedding at the Dana Powers House and Barn in September. I can’t get enough of this gorgeous venue. Every wedding here is spectacular and unique! There were so many wonderful moments from this wedding. Here are my favorite Dana Powers House Wedding Photos from the day!

San Luis Obispo Wedding Photography | Valentine’s Anniversary

san luis obispo wedding photographyThis shoot is featured on Style Me Pretty! To see the post, click HERE! This photoshoot is one of my favorites to date. Jeff and Berdette will be celebrating their 5 year wedding anniversary this Valentine’s Day. To celebrate, Jeff surprised Berdette with this portrait session as one of his anniversary gifts to her! My favorite hair and makeup artist, Jessi Skipton Campbell did a stunning job on beautiful Berdette. See more of Jessi’s work here. If you’re looking for a hairstylist, visit her at Bluebird Salon in SLO! The adorable pink and white floral headpiece was created by San Luis Obispo artist Asha Hickerson. You can find the talented Asha at Faces in SLO. The GORGEOUS floral arrangements (head wreath, bouquet, and boutonniere) were crafted by Huong Hopp of Back Porch Fresh Flowers. San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara brides, these artists still have some availability for 2014, so be sure to contact them ASAP!

Jeff_Berdette_Anniversary_035Jeff_Berdette_Anniversary_022JB001Jeff_Berdette_Anniversary_048Berdette’s dress is a vintage wedding gown that I found at Secondhand Rose (formerly in Sisquoc). It is one of my most favorite treasures in the world. She looked stunning in it! Jeff’s shoes were from Aldo. His blazer was from American Eagle. Bow tie from Buffalo Exchange. Pants and shirt from Urban Outfitters and Express, respectively.

When I was on Oahu in January, my dear friend Ashley (of Ashley Stuart Goodwin Photography) joined Patrick and I for an afternoon of island exploration and film shooting with our Contax 645 film cameras. Ashley was kind enough to model for me and I am so pleased with how these photographs came out!
