Earlier this summer, Laura and Brady and a beautiful Sacramento Zoo wedding that made my dreams come true. I’ve been wanting to shoot at the zoo for SO long, but up until this year it just hadn’t worked out that I’d get to shoot there. I was SO excited when I met Laura and Brady. They are so delightful, deeply in love and fun to be around. Their laid back style and ease together worked perfectly with the breezy beautiful day as they became Mr. and Mrs. Laura and her gals got ready at The Westin where I met up with them. I love the details Laura chose because of their pops of color. They went perfectly with the surroundings of their wedding. Also, Laura was SO laid back! It was so fun to be a part of her getting ready process.
Dustin headed over to the couple’s home to photograph Brady and his guys getting ready. I love boys getting ready pictures… they are always so laid back and fun looking. Lucky Dustin, right?
Then we headed over to The Sacramento Zoo to get these two married! They started off with a first look and then we ran around the grounds making fun portraits with their bridal party. It was such a pleasure hanging out with an incredibly fun group of awesome people.
And then it was time to get these two hitched! We headed over to the feline sanctuary, where the light was DIVINE, and got them married! Also, aren’t these flowers amazing?!?! I loved them!
Then we grabbed a few more portraits and headed over to have some interaction with wildlife! Yes, that’s right there was an animal encounter! We got to touch a hedgehog (adorbs!), an alligator (scary!), a tortoise who’s older than my parents, and more. It was really, really fun!
