josh harneyComment

Josh + Megan's summery, downtown San Francisco wedding with And Something Blue at the helm, was one heck of a party. In the heart of the up and coming, Dogpatch area, The Pearl provided the perfect place to end the day for dinner and dancing, and some rooftop sunset photos.

Elopement Film | Sam + Genna at Glen Oaks in Big Sur, CA

josh harneyComment

Sam + Genna left their cute little chicken farm out East to elope in the sun-soaked redwoods of Big Sur at the always magical Glen Oaks. It was one of the first days of the year that truly felt like summer, with no cloud cover and the warm sun streaming through the treetops. Soaring Starkey joined us to officiate the ceremony, and brought her own personal touch and serene words to the day. After the ceremony Sam + Genna along with So-Cal photographer Courtney Paige and myself went on a little trek up the coast for a higher view of the gorgeous Big Sur Coast and ended our day watching the sun set overthe picturesque coastal cliffs.

Wedding Film | Ben + Taylor at Santa Lucia Preserve, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA

josh harneyComment

Ben + Taylor both described their meeting and initial attraction to each other as comfortable, and feeling a sense of instant familiarity. This ease towards each other was so apparent throughout the day and if i didn't know any better, I would have assumed they were already married. They chose the breathtaking Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel-By-The-Sea for their venue, and although their was a surprising amount of rain the day before making the ceremony lawn a bit too damp, Allison Weddings and her team did an amazing job of shuffling things around last minute to move the ceremony into the barn, adorned with breathtaking flower arrangements, candles, and furnishings. The whole night was a total party, and Ben + Taylor were the most gracious and caring guests of honor.

Wedding Film | Matt + Camellia at Ragged Point Inn, Big Sur, CA

josh harneyComment

Even though much of the Big Sur has been closed due to storm damage, we were blessed enough to still be able to have Matt + Camellia's wedding day at Ragged Point Inn at the southern edge of the Big Sur coastline. The day went off without a hitch with the help of the planning of Samantha and her team at Memory Making Events. After the ceremony, Woodman Weddings and I trekked down the coast a bit to catch the last of the sunlight near San Simeon. Camellia + Matt are big adventurers, so we tried to make their film reflect the way they live their lives. 💑

Elopement Film | Aaron + Gabriela at 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach, CA

josh harneyComment

The day was perfectly overcast with picturesque pebble beach weather. Aaron + Gabriela prepped with their whole little family and it was so touching to see them putting their kids needs (and their pup, King) in front of theirs, even on their wedding day. They said their vows by a near China Rock among the crashing waves, and we ventured out into the jagged rocks to get closer to the water, and overall it was such an effortless, beautiful day celebrating the coming together of their beautiful family for eternity.

Becca + Chris | Dawn Ranch Lodge in Guerneville, CA

josh harney

Dawn Ranch Lodge in Guerneville, CA, tucked away in the woods west of Santa Rosa, was a quaint little venue that had just the right amount of a "summer camp" vibe. Becca, Chris, and their pup were so laid-back and real, and as a result the whole day felt very effortless to be a part of, Lally Clark at A Savvy Event coordinated a beautiful ceremony and reception, and as you can see from the dancing shots, provided some gorgeous light and glass installations. To add to the awesomeness of this day, Helena & Laurent brought so much fun energy to their photography, and really helped to get the best out of Becca + Chris for their portrait sessions. On top of that they set up a killer custom photo booth for the reception!

Elopement Film | Michael + Alex at Glen Oaks, Big Sur, CA

josh harney

Such a serene day at Glen Oaks in Big Sur. They said their vows by a babbling brook, hung out in the woods for portraits, and ended the day at the beach with champagne. The day was effortless and calm, and it was such a unique experience to be so up close and intimate with a couple vowing to spend the rest of their life together.

Engagement Film | Nate + Brynne at Mount Maunganui, New Zealand

josh harneyComment

Mount Maunganui, situated on a picturesque peninsula on the North Island of New Zealand was the perfect setting for Nate + Brynne's engagement film shoot. The day was so serene and calm, walking among the local sheep, looking over a vastly beautiful coastline, and coming across our own little private beach with almost perfectly still water.

Wedding Film | Vince + Kristine at Glen Oaks in Big Sur, CA

josh harneyComment

 

The night before Vince + Kristine's wedding at Glen Oaks on the pristine Big Sur Coast, was greeted by the most rain we have seen there in years. A babbling brook behind the cabins gave way to a rushing rapids, and a small waterfall even formed into the river. We did have to change up the ceremony location, but were luckily still able to have the ceremony outside in the lush, rich green forest. Their day was simple and elegant, and it felt like Vince + Kristine were old friends by the end of the day.

Wedding Film | Andrew + Alisa at Hyatt Carmel Highlands, Big Sur, CA

josh harneyComment

There was a light mist in the air and a drizzle outside, but Andrew + Alisa were both in good spirits for their Hyatt Carmel Highlands wedding on the Big Sur Coast. Although we couldn't have the ceremony outside as planned as the rain increased, we were able to have it in the great hall in front of their Christmas tree. After the Ceremony we headed to Glen Oaks for some portraits in the rain alongside Brandon Wehman at Wanderlust Photo Co. Overall it was a beautiful celebration, and a lovely day.

Doug + Saleen | Four Seasons Reasort Maui, Wailea, HI

josh harney

I had the opportunity to travel to Maui to capture Doug + Saleen's beautiful day at the Four Seasons Resort Maui in Wailea, HI. It was everything you would expect from a day on the picturesque island, and Saleen + Doug embraced the laid-back Hawaiian vibe throughout their day. Married on the lawn overlooking the deep blue ocean and the breathtaking Puʻu Kukui Mountain Peak, their ceremony couldn't have been more. Before dancing the night away, one of everyone's highlights of the night was Ululani's Shaved Ice voted best shaved ice on the island!

Louie + Thyra | Ventana Inn & Spa, Big Sur, CA

josh harney

Ventanna Inn & Spa in Big Sur, CA provided the perfect serene setting to compliment Louie + Thyra's quieter personalities. Both the groomsmen and bridesmaids rooms were cool and collected as they prepped, and Louie + Thyra brought an overall ease to the morning that set the mood for the day. Majesta Patterson expertly captured the day through a mix of film and digital mediums, and the sunset over the Big Sur coast provided the perfect, epic ending to the day.

Gus + Rachelle | Holman Ranch, Carmel Valley, CA

josh harney

 

Karissa at Coastside Couture and her team planned an amazing celebration for Gus + Rachelle at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, CA. Using a classic Mercedes-Benz Convertible as their getaway car, the entire day was classically beautiful and amazingly captured with film by photographer Amanda Crean. Also, for a little behind the scenes tidbit, to get the driving shots of their getaway car going up the mountains, I was actually standing up in a Holman Golf cart, using a stabilizer, to get a wider perspective of the environment.

Tyler + Riana | Tehàma Golf Club, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA

josh harney

Tyler and Riana were high school sweethearts and dated for 10 years before finally tying the knot. Their wedding day was classically beautiful and a joy to be a part of. 

In the morning, Tyler and the guys got ready at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, and just down the road, the Girls were prepping at Clint Eastwood's scenic getaway, Tehàma Golf Club. Fionna Floral provided stunning ceremony pieces and bouquets that set the scene for a picture perfect day.

Their outdoor ceremony was unique, as they planned for the sun to set over the Carmel Valley hills right as the ceremony was coming to an end. This created a gorgeous ending backdrop after saying their vows and walking down the aisle towards the sunset united as one through marriage. Sun & Life Photography captured amazing images of the day, check out a few of them on facebook here.

Andrew + Caitie | Annadel Estate Winery, Santa Rosa, CA

josh harney

For most weddings, I make it a goal to try to be a relaxing and calming part of a Bride + Groom's day, as there are already so many things around that may be hectic or stressful. Andrew + Caitie were unique in the way that they were so calm and chill, they were almost doing the reverse, making me more at ease capturing the day. Their ease flowed throughout the beautifully designed day by Kelly Mclesky-Dolata at A Savvy Event with a gorgeous reception tent that all the guests partied late into the night under with the help of Pop Rocks SF Band . Annadel Estate Winery provided the perfect backdrop for the day, and as you can see in the video, had no shortage of beautiful locations while shooting portraits beside Delbarr Moradi. The Ceremony Location was adorned with custom rugs and one of the most stunning floral jobs by Chestnut & Vine.

Steven + Bailey | Reinstein Ranch, Livermore, CA

josh harney

Steven and Bailey's wedding in the outskirts of Livermore, CA was such a sweet day in every aspect. Reinstein Ranch is a true ranch (not "wedding venue ranch") with horses all around, and livestock, chickens and dogs all around. Amanda Gagliardi and her team at A Beautiful Gathering managed to totally transform the venue into a beautiful and stylish wedding celebration setting in the 24 hours leading up to the day. During the ceremony it was so apparent how deep Steven + Bailey's love was for each other, and was so beautiful to be a part of. I was also lucky enough to shoot beside the always bubbly and energetic Kelly Boitano Photography which is always a unique treat!

Iceland in 1 Minute

josh harney

Here's a throwback to 2011 when my Brother and I visited Iceland. I made a longer film, but recently re-edited some of my favorite shots into this short Instagram-ready version. Iceland was easily the most uniquely beautiful place I have ever been, and although we were there for two weeks, It felt like what we saw was just the tip of the iceberg (pun intended). Someday I will definitely return and explore more, but for now the memories that I have from this trip, and the images I captured hold a very special place in my heart.
