When Sayuri and Andreas announced plans for an intimate wedding in the forest of Muir Woods and they wanted me to capture their day, I was ecstatic to be a part of such a momentous event. Our couple are avid hikers who first met on a backpacking adventure through Patagonia. Throughout the years, they explored amazing trails from the Lost Coast to Bryce Canyon. After the rains, they would join fellow friends on foraging scouts and often bring back full baskets of porcini and other fungi finds. Their love for nature and each other, brings them together on this day to exchange vows underneath the giant redwoods.
After the ceremony, we drove up to the top of Mount Tamalpais to an amazing spot that Sayuri & Andreas scouted from a recent hiking trip. Things could not have aligned any better, as the hiking club Friends of Mt. Tam were gathered atop this location for an annual viewing party to watch the moon rise as the sun sets. They warmly showered the couple with champagne and an impromptu celebratory reception.
Special thank you to Brian Wong...my loving husband, lighting technician, and one of the best officiants I have yet to work with.
