kristy + eric’s sonoma wedding

I met Kristy many years ago as she (back then) was an aspiring photographer looking for some guidance and direction.  She quickly made her way into my heart as I ended up photographing her and we ended up connecting in such a beautiful way.  Over the years, Kristy has become an amazing photographer and I have watched her grow into this beautiful, confident woman.  When she finally met the man of her dreams in Eric, I could not be more happy and proud of her.  I knew that her wedding would be something very special and I was SO PROUD and HONORED to be asked to photograph this day that meant SO MUCH to Kristy and Eric along with their dear friends and family.  I know that Kristy poured herself into this wedding and the results were nothing short of perfect!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Kristy + Eric for allowing me (and trusting me) to be a part of your very beautiful day.  I am so blessed and grateful.
