Putting together our yearly recap posts has become one of my favorite parts of starting the new year. Reflection is such an important part of growth and I loved reflecting back at the year’s photos. We worked throughout California and traveled to New York, Washington DC, Las Vegas, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Luxembourg, Spain and Mexico for weddings and portrait sessions. Thank you to all of our incredible clients who invite us into their lives and allow us to witness and photograph their wedding days. We are so lucky to have the best clients and to also have the opportunity to work with incredibly talented vendors who add so much beauty to the photos we take.  2017 was pretty amazing and will certainly be hard to beat, but I cannot wait for 2018 and the year ahead.

Silke & Andreas Tuscany Wedding Photographer

Tuscany is without a doubt, one of my favorite places in the world. During our visit in August we had the joy of photographing Silke and Andreas at their beautiful home, Villa Montanare, outside of Cortona. They are basically living the dream (also MY dream) and own a stunning villa looking over the Tuscan countryside. Their villa is a stunning Tuscany wedding venue for intimate weddings and elopements. Silke is also an amazing wedding planner throughout Tuscany and Italy.

Rose Gold Minimal Beauty Fine Art Wedding Photography Los Angeles

From florist Asha of Wilder Floral Co“When the fabrication of the ‘brown sweet pea’ was unearthed, it was impossible to not be in awe of it’s refreshing new uniqueness. The rosegolden coloring became the seed for new inspiration. With this, the myth of our angelic bride was written and everything she touched became guilded in rosegold; defining the pop of our palette as tarnished, brassy and rose golden.

Amanda created the perfect glowy, ethereal look for our divinely dressed model Paden, in a minimal white dress by Solace London.

From the modern ring stack by Alexis Russell, to the golden leaves and rosegolden sweet peas in her hair, we created a modern Grecian Goddess. Touches of marbled golden silks, brass tealights and taper holders all added to the overall story.”

Mary & Patrick’s Elegant Santa Margarita Ranch Wedding Santa Margarita Ranch Wedding Designed by Danae Grace Events, Florals by Noonan's Wine Country Designs and Photographed by Ashley Ludaescher Photography

We were thrilled to have Mary & Patrick’s Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty’s Front Page.

From the Bride, Mary… “When Patrick and I got engaged, the first big hurdle we faced was deciding where to get married — my family is in San Francisco and his is in Fairfield, Connecticut. Eventually, we settled on central California, where my mom grew up. Dreaming up a West Coast wedding while based in Boston wasn’t easy, but we were lucky to have an incredible wedding planner. Danae Pearce’s style is so elegant and dreamy, and she made it work perfectly with our rustic setting. I gave Danae a pretty bare-bones sense of how I pictured the day, and I was thrilled with her vision. She understood exactly what I wanted and I trusted her completely. She put together an all-star team of vendors for a truly perfect day.

The color scheme for the wedding was delicate — blush, creams, touches of gold, etc. — which is exactly what I’m always drawn to. Patrick’s personal style, on the other hand, is quintessential preppy New England (I call his aesthetic “Easter brunch”). We met in the middle by giving the groomsmen bright ties and socks, and Patrick wore a nautical pocket square. Our ceremony was right in the center of San Luis Obispo at the Old Mission, which is where my parents got married. From there, we went to Santa Margarita Ranch, one of the oldest ranches in the state. Our reception was in their barn, which was decked out with lush foliage, flowers, chandeliers, and lounge areas. We arranged for the ranch’s historic train to take guests around the gorgeous property during cocktail hour. It was a huge hit, especially with our precious ring bearer, who probably rode it at least three times!

There were so many great moments from our wedding day, from getting ready at my mom’s house to breaking out Irish coffees at the end of the night. Because there was so much going on, the day felt like a blur to me. I am so grateful that the fabulous Ashley Ludaescher and her team (her husband, Andreas) were there to capture those moments so we can relive the day through her photos. Her eye is truly one-of-a-kind, and she felt like one of my friends by the end of the day. Patrick and I are overjoyed at how everything turned out and would recommend all of our vendors in a heartbeat!”
