First Look|What is it|Should we do it?|Is it right for us?|

While booking a senior session for next fall, I was reminded of this beautiful wedding that took place in the summer or 2016. Daniel and Jessica’s wedding at Fern Cottage in Ferndale, California was one I fondly remember. I knew it would be a guaranteed good time with “amazing food” at a beautiful venue,  and it did not disappoint in any of these categories. Daniel and Jessica are a fun loving and laid back couple, and this is everything I hope for when I photograph weddings. I wish for plenty of laughter, smiles, beautiful venues, and down to earth couples with big hearts for the people in their lives.
