Becca first reached out to me about her redwood wedding when I was in the hospital in labor with my son. So, my response was probably a little along the lines of HIIIIITHANKSLOVEYOUBRB… yes, I was still answering e-mails. Briefly. Despite what the movies will tell you, giving birth is not all drama and sparkly saucer eyes. Well, not in my case… I actually had quite a bit of down time over the course of three days. Yeeeeahhh.
Family means the world to me. And not just in the traditional sense - I’m a firm believer that the term “family” applies to all of the rad people who mosaic the pieces of your life together. Some by blood and others through time, attention and love. Becca and Patrick’s family fits this description perfectly. I am always incredibly grateful to capture a day that celebrates the people that provide the foundation for a lifetime together.
