Julie had me from the get-go. She was actually the first wedding I booked for the 2016 season and one of the ones I was most looking forward to all year. Her inquiry email said things like, “come party with us in June Lake” and that they were hoping to find a photographer that would be willing to photograph a group hike instead of an engagement session. They booked a beautiful lodge at June Lake and had an intimate affair with 50 of their closest friends and family in attendance, most of whom stayed on site or at the adjacent condos, over 4th of July weekend. They served tacos at dinner (be still my taco loving heart) and margaritas and hired my best buddy and personal DJ, Dave Berkman, to spin the dancing tunes. They invited Dave and I to wine, dine and hike with them all weekend and we had absolutely the best time swapping stories and having drinks late until the evening with this adventurous crew. I can’t wait until my paths cross again with Julie and Taylor, and I’m sure they will. This couple is full of just the kind of spirit I like to surround myself with.
