Michael & Heather

Oct 5, 2018

Hidden Hollow | Reedley, California

Michael and Heather’s Day at Hidden Hollow was elegant, tender and overall just lovely!! Sweet friends and family scurrying all around the beautiful grounds helping each other prepare for this long awaited day.  The joyful giggles, kids playing or napping during hair and make up time was precious.  LOVED Heather’s bridal details, as you will soon see! They seemed straight out of a magazine. Cathedral veils will always be my all time favorite. So fun to combine all these planning details into one amazing place. Sweet tears flowed during the first look. Honestly, the tender love shared between Heather & Michael touched my heart. As the ceremony continued, the meaningful connection was a blessing to witness.

I had to giggle at the jr. bridesmaid! She coined my silly giggle direction as a psych-o laugh!!!

“Dad, she want us to do this crazy, Psych-o Laugh!” lol

Bahahahaha ???? Love her!! I just might use her term from now on.  I must admit I sound pretty funny at times, while photographing a wedding party, but I promise it is always with a purpose! Even if everyone is laughing at me, I am able to capture their genuine, unique smiles and heartwarming interactions with one other. It is an amazing pleasure to serve my sweet couples while documenting this important day with their friends and families. How better to capture their different relationships by finding their natural interactions! Enjoy this sneak peak of this elegant day!
