Why I Loved Photographing This Romantic Backyard Wedding in Santa Rosa

You know what’s really awesome about being a wedding photographer? Getting to see so many different fashion and floral trends, and personalities, and ideas come to life in event form. I’ve had the privilege of photographing quite a few weddings over the years, and one thing is certain: there is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to planning this important day. And what a treat it is to see the myriad of ways couples celebrate their love.

Lyra and Sam were married in the backyard of a Santa Rosa home. It was intimate and romantic and wonderful. The bride wore a sunny yellow dress and carried a simple bouquet of wildflowers. The couple truly was glowing as we shot during golden hour, beside an old oak tree.

There are no rules when it comes to planning your wedding. The only thing that matters is the love that surrounds you. Whether you’re saying “I do” in a church, or a vineyard, on a beach, or in your garden – this is the start of a marvelous adventure.

Thank you to Lyra and Sam for inviting me to be a part of your story.
