Lisa & Steph, Married on the headlands at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens

These two beautiful souls were married last August. Surrounded by their friends and family, they exchanged vows and promised to love each other forever. And I was there to capture all of it. Yes…I know. I’m a lucky person to do what I love doing.
Venue: Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens


Niki and Ernie, Married in Elk California

What can I possibly say about these two that the images don’t already express…they were smitten with each other and it photographed beautifully. I was honored to be a part of their wedding day elopement. Thank you Niki and Ernie and sunny Elk California too!




Melissa and Kim, Married in Mendocino by Elope Mendocino

If you’re paying attention, you’ll notice I shoot a lot of elopements! And this makes me very happy because I love them. I’ve been lucky to work with a very sweet elopement proprietor the past few years, Vanna Freeberg of Elope Mendocino. Melissa and Kim were married by Vanna at the Agate Cove Inn in Mendocino California.TammieGilchristPhotography_0761TammieGilchristPhotography_0762TammieGilchristPhotography_0763TammieGilchristPhotography_0764TammieGilchristPhotography_0765TammieGilchristPhotography_0771TammieGilchristPhotography_0766TammieGilchristPhotography_0767TammieGilchristPhotography_0768TammieGilchristPhotography_0769TammieGilchristPhotography_0770

Amy and Billy, day after session at The Dolphin House, Mendocino California

This is a first for me and I loved it! We got together and shot images that Amy says they will use as art to decorate the walls of their home. I love it! And these two…what can I say? I could photograph them all day long! Amy and Billy, you were a joy to be around and work with. Thank you for everything and I’ll pop your package in the mail on Monday 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your trip in California before heading back home.




Amy and Billy, Married in Mendocino California

Where do I even start? I can’t explain how incredibly genuine and kind these human beings are. From the very first second I spoke with Amy I knew right away our time together would be special. In fact, I think anyone who spends any time with either her or Billy feel the same way I do. And not only that, I was referred by James Sibbet and you would have thought the way Amy talked about him, they were personal friends. Nope. I was wrong, but it doesn’t surprise me in the least because this is how she makes everyone sound, like a personal friend. So there you go. Two people who dared not to take life for granted and just did it. They went and got married a few thousand miles away from home (Michigan of all places!). I will continue to feel like a friend to these two people because I know, without a doubt, our paths will cross again. I might have to travel to Michigan, but that’s okay. For them, I would in a heartbeat!
