kara + chris : san francisco liberty hill engagement

If I had to have one artist and one artist only play the soundtrack to my life, it would be Bon Iver. There is no hesitation.

Waking – perth  ; sleeping – stacks grocery shopping – blood bank  ; showering – holocene ; driving – skinny love ; at the gym – calgarydoing laundry – michicant ; Every single thing would seem more epic and beautiful. Justin Vernon’s voice just has this way with my heart. I can’t explain it.

So now you know this about me.

Imagine me standing at my desk when I got Kara’s email about her wedding. Oh and by the way we got engaged at the Bon Iver concert at the Greek Theatre. 

Well then. There was no question in my mind that now I had to woo them.

They drove all the way down from Santa Rosa to meet with me and so I did what any girl does to woo someone. I made them tacos. And I am so thankful that it worked.

And Kara, who works to protect open spaces, and Chris, who makes websites work like magic, chose me to tell the story of their love and their wedding day. It’s a good fit.

Just like Bon Iver and Tacos.

    Remind me that I want to take pictures with some cherry blossom trees at some point in my life please.
