Joni + Matt's Wedding
When Matt asked me to shoot his wedding, I didn't hesitate to say yes. When he said it was at their new place in Hanford (south of Fresno), I didn't flinch. It's a good four hour drive from my house in Oakland, but how could I say no to the best banana bread baker I've ever met? Matt had just redesigned the backyard and the results were amazing. The new yard plus all the beautiful little touches added by Joni transformed it into the perfect spot for a wedding!
Let's start with Joni's beautiful red dress and teal pumps.

Everybody get goofy!
The next day, Joni, Matt, and I take a tour of Hanford and create some intimate portraits away from the spotlight.

Here's a secret: Joni actually doesn't like banana shakes, but orders it because the color compliments her dress and his tie. Joni, you are awesome!
Joni and Matt, thank you for welcoming me into your home and letting me be a part of your wonderful weekend.
