Los Altos Wedding

Redwood portraits

This backyard ceremony that Amanda and Clay had in the hills of Los Altos was one of my favorite weddings to shoot last year. The wedding tent was beautifully decorated, the dessert buffet had so many options and the music was great, but more important than all of that was how much fun the friends and family had that day.
