I had the pleasure of being a second photographer to Jenae Lopez Photography in this Big Basin Redwoods wedding. Trisha and Jim’s camping wedding was such an adventure. I will gladly travel back to be a Santa Cruz wedding photographer again.
First, Jenae and I arrived where Trisha and her gals were getting ready. This house was amazing and one could have easily held the ceremony there! But an even better location awaited us in the Redwoods. Next, I met Jim at the Sequoia Group Campsite in the Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Their friends and family were setting up yard games and all the decorations for this glam camping wedding. Trisha and Jim had their first look nearby and shared so many laughs and sweet moments together before their ceremony.
On this warm summer day, the two shared their vows under the shade of the massive Redwoods.
Afterward, the guests mingled at the campsite for drinks and appetizers while we snuck Jim and Trisha out for some romantic photos. Photographing these two was an absolute delight. They laughed non stop with each other and I absolutely love when couples can be themselves in front of a camera. We took the opportunity to take unique photos of Jim and Trisha inside the trunks of the massive California Redwoods.
Later, these sweethearts danced together with their friends and family as the sun set on this marvelous Big Basin Redwoods wedding day.
A toast to all the wonderful vendors who help make Trisha and Jim’s Big Basin Redwoods wedding a success! And thank you to Jenae Lopez for allowing me to be your second Santa Cruz wedding photographer.
