Thomas and Laura tying the knot in a garden! When I first heard about the location for this wedding I had a hard time visualizing how it would all fit, but all I can say now is, WOW! Watson’s Veggie Garden on Main Street is definitely a tucked away gem. Even the drizzle of rain could not steal anything away from this quaint little spot. In this garden, Pastor Travis Aicklen officiating at the ceremony, brought this man and woman to husband and wife.

This vintage inspired wedding included flowers from Sweet Memories, with some of my favorites! One of the valley’s favorite places to dine, Fugazzi’s catered the wedding with delicious food.Musical stylizing for the processional was provided by the unique beard and voice of Jerrod Turner of the Gospel Whiskey Runners.

Now, let’s bring together the best of two worlds, Taylor’s Hot Dogs and Brewbakers beer! These late night dogs were a nice topper to the hungry bellies on the dance floor. Watching all the dancing feet, I couldn’t help but notice Thomas and his groomsmen ‘s feet, which were all fitted into a pair Toms Shoes. To add a sweet touch to the evening, there was a dessert table full of homemade goodies. One of the popular desserts of the night was the Oreo balls, enjoyed on unique plates that were collected from various thrift stores.

I can’t thank Thomas and Laura enough for having such a unique and beautiful wedding, and thank you for letting me be apart of it and thank you for making my job easy.TES_1258

I wasn't able to attend the wedding and it was nice to see the pictures. My favorites are Tomas and Laura dancing on the street, the Trolly car and them eating the hot dog. Great!

Erin | Visalia Senior Portrait Photography
| December 12th, 2010 |

erin-headerI have known Erin for a long time. In fact, I have been on 3 different continents (Albania, Thailand, and all over the USA) with her and her family. I do a lot of work with Full Sail Ministries which  is staffed almost entirely by the Ludlow family. She is currently a senior at  El Diamante High School.  It makes me feel old to be shooting her senior portraits already (no worries! I’m not even 30 yet!), but I was very excited to have the chance.

The following images were shot in Yokohl  Valley.  This was also one of the first times I got to use my new mobile lighting kit, two strobes, stands, softbox, gels, radio triggers, and lots of other trinkets, that all fit into one back pack… pretty cool!

View her entire set here! (if you have the password)
