This Deer Park Villa wedding was with two people I have known for years. I first met Autumn when I worked at Lululemon in 2018. I just graduated college and it was my first job right after. Everyone including her was so nice and when I first started to get into photography I asked her if she and her boyfriend would be interested in being models for me.
She was so happy and said yes immediately. They were the first or second couple I ever worked with! We went to Sutro Baths, we had the most beautiful sunset and I felt like that session pretty much solidified that I wanted to be a photographer. They are still some of my favorite photos. And I remember rushing home and editing pretty much through the night because I was sooo excited by them.
Fast forward to earlier this year and Autumn reached out to me about photographing their wedding. I immediately said yes of course! And it was like a full circle moment in the best way possible. I walked into the bridal suite and literally immediately cried when I saw her so looked SO BEAUTIFUL! And that just started the water works that were to come this day.
Autumn and Kellen while working the suites together at Oracle Arena specifically when the Warriors were playing there. Like a lot of people, Kellen had a strict no-dating co-workers rule but after months of working together, taking breaks together, and getting to know one another he soon broke that rule.
These two have incredible hearts that look and care deeply for one another and for the people they have around them. They invited around 120 people to celebrate this new chapter in their relationship together. And we were all amazed and cried looking at these two celebrating their love together during their Deer Park Villa wedding.
