The wedding.

Below, 2 Holga shots.

BELOW: 35mm film shot of groom & groomsman actor Richmond Arquette — I love the magical light orbs! (No processing  was done to this photo).

These next 2 portraits below, also shot on 35mm film– and invaded by a flurry of intense auras and spirits! (Again, no processing was done to these)… I seriously lose my mind when this sort of stuff happens.

Below images are 35mm film and digital.

I love it when guests get into the vibe and dress up- it adds so much character to the entire day…. this reminded me so much of the beautiful spectacle of Kestrin & Jonathan’s wedding of the century!– remember that one?

3 Holga’s below….

Savannah played fiddle at her own wedding…

Also a great big giant THANK YOU to my beautiful clients for spoiling us rotten and getting us this gorgeous 2 bedroom cottage for the weekend, fully equipped with Jacuzzi and right in the middle of town. I highly recommend The Lavender Cottage during your stay in Point Reyes Station.
