One year ago today I shot one of the greatest weddings I've ever been to. It was only partially due to location, but Big Sur is a place that means more to me than almost anywhere. It's just minutes from where I took my first step, and though I call the Midwest home for now, I often wonder how I can live so far from a place where my favorite things, the ocean and mountains, meet in such a stunning way. It's easy to see what drew Robinson Jeffers and the writers that followed. Kerouac slept under the very bridges Steinbeck helped build and Henry Millers' presence is still there, drawing big names to what's a quiet library by day and a music venue by night. Pfeiffer Beach defies words and just around the corner, Big Sur Bakery did a beautiful job hosting.
Chris and Christina, it was an honor working with, playing with, and getting to know you in such a magical place. May your love always carry the spirit of your wedding day and the power of that breathtaking landscape.
