CLAYTON WEDDING: MYKAH + SALENA

oakhurst_country_club_1

I had the pleasure of meeting this couple for the first time both together only a few weeks before the wedding. I had actually photographed Salena and her family who are the funnest, most easygoing and kind people I know. After having that fun session Salena’s mother Brenda asked if I photographed weddings. I had never before and they gave me the honor of capturing their youngest daughter’s wedding to the love of her life Mykah at Oakhurst Country Club in Clayton, CA. So many blessings!

Their wedding in Clayton was one for the books. The ease that these two have with each other is demonstrated the second you meet them. You immediately sense that this is it for them, they are fully connected to each other and so in love. When Sal was getting ready she was so calm, so composed. I mentioned how calm she was and she laughed saying she’s just easygoing, but I think it’s because she knows she has nothing to be nervous about. She has picked her soulmate for life.

It makes sense, their love story started in middle school. With silly love notes being passed to each other. Fast forward to the day of their wedding and I stood watching Mykah as he waited for his wife to walk down the aisle. I never had my camera on anyone else, I wanted to catch the first time he saw her in that dress. I instantly knew from his face when she was coming, his eyes lit up and the corner of his lips turned into a smile. His eyes started to glisten and he threw his head up to stop himself from full joy tears at seeing his life walking towards him.

I ran behind him to focus on her, and she couldn’t contain her joy. Her happy tears were giving me goosebumps and as she walked towards him her eyes were locked on her husband and only him. As her father gave her away, it was clear that this gesture was the start to a love story for them. One that will sweep them off their feet and that will pass on to their children and grandchildren.

Mykah and Salena – Congratulations to you two. I seriously couldn’t have asked for a lovelier couple to work with. You two exude joy and your Clayton wedding was absolutely stunning. I feel so honored that I got to be there to capture it all for you and witness the love story unfold. Thank you so much!
