I really enjoyed capturing Robby and Kathleen’s Pema Osel Ling wedding located in the Santa Cruz Redwood Mountains of California. Kathleen is from my hometown, so I knew we would get along great. I expected to hear the song “Streets of Bakersfield” at some point during the reception, but it never happened. Jokingly I told Kathleen after the wedding how I was disappointed to not hear the unofficial anthem song for Bakersfield. Not surprising at all it was on the playlist, but just didn’t get played. I absolutely love shooting outdoor Redwood weddings. The main reason for moving back to California was to have the opportunities to capture weddings like this. Sorry NYC your wedding venues don’t compare to the stunning back drops California is able to provide. Thanks Kathleen and Robby for allowing be to be part of your celebration and for the reminder of why I love living in California.
