Rachelle & Justin
Family Wedding Celebration in Northern California
Rachelle and Justin are two beautiful souls who tied the knot on a fickle fall day in Northern California. I was lucky enough to capture their love during their backyard family affair in Loomis, California.

You may remember Justin and Rachelle from their original and romantic engagement shoot in the American River Canyon. This friendly and outdoorsy couple made my job so easy during this shoot because their connection came so easy.
No big surprise then, that their wedding day images also reflected this romantic mood. From the intimate ‘getting-ready’ shots surrounded by their family and friends, to the touching ceremony and especially the few minutes we stole away for their first look and couple photos – each moment was a beautiful opportunity to document their love.
When someone says ‘backyard wedding’, you might picture a casual affair with balloons and barbecue. As you can certainly see, Rachelle and Justin’s elegant wedding couldn’t have been farther from that aesthetic. Their wedding at a family home in the foothills of NorCal was tasteful, fun, and classy. But simple and super fun just the same. It’s the kind of wedding that you want to be invited to. It was awesome, and I’m so happy to have been a part of it.
Their celebration took place on a fall day in the Foothills – a great time of year which is practically guaranteed to be sunny. Well, mother nature had other plans that day and it turned out to be overcast and even a little drizzly.
I’ve said it before, but I kind of love it when this happens. It may be a little stressful for the couple (which I totally understand), but I really love the soft effect this kind of cloudy day brings. It gives great depth and really lets Justin and Rachelle’s love shine through their images.
