Cambria wedding photographer Debbie Markham_Cambria Pines Lodge

Its so amazing to be a Cambria wedding photographer! This quaint small town has the most beautiful venues for outdoor weddings!  Cambria Pines Lodge is a gorgeous location for a destination wedding.  Firstly, it has amazing gardens, paths, redwood trees, a wishing well, wood doors and unusual flora.  No wonder I love being a wedding photographer for Cambria Pines Lodge!

Secondly, Alyssa and Adam had an incredibly fun wedding party and family!  They snapchatted while getting ready, the guys drank some Fireball and girls drank Tequila!  Thirdly, they looked amazing with hair and makeup by Justine McCoy Makeup, dressed in grey suits and mauve dresses. They also had really cool etched champagne flutes with straws.  Lastly, their vendors were awesome!  Music and lighting by DJ Johnny Walker, and decorations by Cover Ups. I felt so much love and fun in the air!  I am so lucky to be a part of these special moments in life as a Cambria Wedding Photographer.

Jenna + Cody’s Red and Black Wedding

Red and Black_Small Town_Destination_Wedding_Cambria_CA_Photographer

Jenna + Cody’s red and black wedding took place in the gardens of Robin’s Restaurant.  Her elegant, fitted, long black wedding dress was so unconventional, yet perfect for a December wedding.

Jenna hired Rhonda Johnson from Bridal Hair and Makeup to help her get ready.  Rhonda is such a positive, sweet energy on your wedding day, you just feel relaxed in your chair while she is uses her amazing stylist skills in a natural, elegant fashion.

Jenna + Cody are adorable together, both emulating a natural softness and care towards each other and all family members.  They played a really cute shoe game during the reception, where they held each other’s shoes, and statements like “this is the messier person in the relationship” were read.  whoever thought it most applied to the other, raised the that shoe!  The toasts made were so loving and funny I felt like I just fell in love with these two families.

I am blessed to live in Cambria, and am so happy to be a wedding photographer here!

AJ + Raphael Married on the Cliffs {Small Beach Town Wedding}

LGBT Wedding-Small Wedding_-Small Town Wedding-Gay Wedding Photographer_Debbie Markham Photography_Cambria CA

It warms my heart so much to have photographed this lovely gay wedding. Their family and friends were sooooo affectionate towards each other before, during and after the event, The exchange of vows held deeper meaning and funnier anecdotes than most. And the ethereal afternoon fog made me feel warmer and fuzzier than normal. Central Coast weather is always so cozy and stunning, especially on days like these. I loved photographing this LGBT wedding!

My cheeks hurt from smiling the whole time.  Such a beautiful and memorable intimate destination wedding, with incomparable surroundings, great company, and endless amounts of love. So refreshing and heartwarming to see the amount of love shared between these two. Thank you AJ and Raphael for hiring me!
