Scott + Sarah // Bodega Head Intimate Wedding, Sonoma County Photographer

Sarah and Scott contacted me a week before their St. Patrick’s Day wedding. They were on the hunt for a photographer for their small wedding, but hadn’t found a photographer they loved. March 17th was their 13th anniversary together. Sarah, a firefighter, and Scott, and policeman, had met through work. They had both been married previously so they weren’t looking for anything crazy in terms of their wedding day. They simply wanted to be at the coast, with their closest family and friends. Sarah and Scott had picked a spot on a bluff overlooking Bodega Head. They got ready in the town of Bodega Bay at a house they rented for themselves and their friends. It was perfect. We spent the afternoon hanging at the house while everyone got ready. We then drove the 10 minute drive to Bodega Head and took at 10 minute trail walk out to the bluffs. The weather was incredible and the waves serenaded us all as Sarah and Scott said their vows to one another and finished the ceremony with a Celtic Hand Fasting. We couldn’t have imagined a more amazing afternoon on the coast.
