chelsea & brett's seaside mountaintop springtime elopement

chelsea and brett eloped last may, 
on a mountain top, as the sun went down.
and as far as photographer's dreams go, 
this was as good as it gets. 

i had met chelsea years before, at a summer job we both hated, 
and we connected on a level that kept our friendship ignited throughout the years,
long after those summer days of bussing tables and running food. 
after getting new jobs, moving to new cities, and starting our own companies, 
we remained in contact, 
and when she wrote to tell me she was eloping with
THE MAN OF HER DREAMS, and she wanted me to be there to capture it, 
my heart did a swan dive into a luscious pool of
STOKE.

with just a handful of people by their side, 
we spent the day
exploring the seaside and surrounding forrest
stopping for cheeseburgers and golden graham milkshakes, 
and then driving, top down, to the top of Mt Douglas

And with the setting sun at their witness,
 they took each other, 
as man an wife.

these two are truer blue than dallas road spring sky.

here is the story of chelsea & brett.

thea & greg's gorgeous autumn garden wedding

thea & greg's wedding took place on the 1st of october,
an ethereal, grey morning mist
and dewdrops as far as the eye could see. 
it was the meeting place,
            where summer met fall, 
such an electricity in the air,
one season melting into the other. 

it was cool, but not cold. 

the skies swelled, but held back the rain.

and then,
           after the i do's in the garden, 
we took off for tacos and the seascapes just as the skies began to part
so the sun could say goodnight, 
           and the summer could say goodbye. 


XO.
