Drew & Lacy. Bolinas, CA.

When I first met Drew and Lacy they had just come back from a surf trip. It was something they really enjoyed doing together. The plan was to go surfing on the morning of their wedding, but when the day came there were torrential downpours. Rain ain’t no thang… said Drew. Actually, that’s what I said. But Drew and Lacy apparently felt the same way so they set out to sea to fulfill their destiny.

This day encompassed everything Drew and Lacy held close to their hearts. They wanted something peaceful, elegant, organic, natural, and just incredibly fun for their friends and family. It was all of that and some. I was honored to be there to document their incredible story. To add even more awesomeness to this day, I had my good friend Fer Juaristi join me. All I can say about this guy is that I love him like a brother and I respect him immensely as a photographer and human being.

Thank you Drew, Lacy, and Fer for this opportunity. Love you guys.
