What a wonderful year it was…2015

Wowzers, the Mendocino Coast and Tammie Gilchrist photography were busy busy busy with all things wedding in 2015.  Elopements & full day weddings really take up most of my calendar although I do sneak in senior portraits and family sessions as well.  I’m looking forward to an even busier 2016 on the Mendocino Coast (with some changes coming my way too … FILM!!) as well as Napa and Sonoma.

These two plan on tying the knot next June and before signing their contract with me, jumped in front of my camera for an engagement session. I really like the idea of test driving the photographer … they LOVED the pictures and asked me to photograph their wedding moments after seeing their pictures. I’m so EXCITED!

This is just a very teenie tiny sample of what I have from their day..

What’s to really say anyway. These two are beautiful. Inside & out!

The sunset was spectacular on their wedding day … I was over the moon excited for them.


The dahlia garden in September… it’s just FULL of beautiful color!


This is the kind of breathtaking background THIS photographer LOVES so much.
