I’ve been looking forward to sharing Tracy and Trent’s wedding at Highland Dell Lodge in Monte Rio, CA ever since I photographed it. I met Tracy and Trent a year before their wedding at an Instagram meet up. It’s the only Instagram meet up I’ve ever gone to and it paid off big time. I knew it would be an absolute pleasure working with these two because of their appreciation for photography. The church they picked to get married at wasn’t just any church. It’s the church from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds in Bodega Bay. It’s a beautiful church up on the hill. If you ever drive through Bodega Bay it’s easy to pass by without noticing it because of the way the highway turns. Tracy and Trent are two of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I felt like I was shooting a friend’s wedding. Throughout the wedding day they gave me all the time I needed and were excited for all of my photo ideas. Even my weird request of dancing crazy on the dark patio (check out the last image below). Trent’s restored pickup truck made for great photo opportunities. If it wasn’t such a trek for me to visit the city I know I would be good friends with these two.
