Lost Whale Inn | Trinidad, CA Wedding

9/23/23 vibrated on a higher level. Cortney & Jahkota’s Lost Whale Inn Wedding was one I’ll never ever forget.

An unmatched calm.
Overflowing with love.
Sprinkled with hype.
Doused in intention.
Wrapped in beauty.

I have so much to process still about how amazing it all was, but I’ll start with this —

Aside from the beautiful details, stunning setting, & all the bells + whistles –
This day HIT every mark the first day of forever should.

This is some of the best work I’ve ever created, & it’s not because of me. It’s because of Cortney & Jahkota. They curated a sacred day so pure to them. Everything was intentional from the date they chose, the way they spent their morning, a chill slow timeline, walking down the aisle together, including their pup, and writing individual notes to each of their core humans. Every little thing was hand-picked by them with love.

I’ll stop there & let these beautiful photos speak for themselves. I can’t look at them without tearing up. It really was the coolest day ever. This Lost Whale Inn Wedding has my heart big time and so does Cortney & Jahkota. Their dream day was such an honor to capture.

I fucking love what I do, and I do it with my whole heart and soul.

My couples are my family. I do not take it lightly that you are entrusting me to capture the biggest day of your life, so in return, I will protect you, serve you, and give you my best self. I will capture your memories and tell your story as honestly and authentically as possible. I pinch myself every day to make sure this is really my job. I fucking love what I do, and I do it with my whole heart and soul.
