I was pleasantly surprised when Karlie contacted me to photograph her wedding… I wasn’t even aware that she and Michael were even dating! The story of how they met is nothing but sweet. They met at church through the 20s/30s community and they were instantly smitten with each other.
Much gratitude and thanks to Chesley Somohano for coming from all the way from Nashville, Tenn., and second shooting.
The wedding was held at [Karlie’s father] Terry’s property in Bakersfield, California. The land showcased the beautiful California acreage and the coveted “California light.” Karlie and Michael’s families are some of the most affable people I have ever met. I wish them the best in the future and thank you so so much for granting me the honor of being part of your day.
