MEET MEGAN

This elegant backyard wedding was one for the books! When Katie told me the wedding was at Andrew’s parent’s house, my first thought was a small, backyard affair. This blew that out of the water! What a stunning wedding this was! The colors were so incredibly elegant, the style was classic and timeless and the company was top notch.

Andrew & Katie were married on October 9, 2021 at Andrew’s parents home in Central California.

As a wedding photographer, I work to capture each wedding day with attention to the unique details each couple curates for their day. And let’s be honest, this backyard wedding was exquisite! I am a sucker for the classic white color scheme and the white florals and eucalyptus greenery was show stopping. The timeless look of a black suit on a groom gets me every single time! Maybe it’s because my husband also wore the classic black suit but that look just can’t be beat in my opinion. I guess I’m a fan of the timeless look!

See some behind the scenes footage from their wedding on our Instagram!
