Joey + Nicole

This is hard... and this is Madalena. I don't know from where I should start telling about this experience so I'll write from the beginning. I met Erica in the best Photo workshop ever, called Feet First, from Our Labor of Love last year in Los Angeles, California. Besides all I learned, all I saw and all I felt, I can say I got new friends.

Well, Erica and I kept in touch and she told me about her sister's (Nicole) wedding in the backyard of their parents. I was amazed hearing that and, with all my heart I could see myself shooting this dream DIY wedding in the Californian mountains between Fresno and Yosemite Park. I got at the Roger's house three days before the wedding, I had my own room in a house full of love, joy and one of the best people I've ever met!

All of this was like a dream-come-true for a Brazilian photographer that flew from Sao Paulo/Atlanta/Salt Lake City/Fresno then I took a car drove to their place. Happiness might be the right word to express what I felt. Besides all kindness of these people, they are all so creative! The groom is Joey Vannucchi, the frontman of From Indian Lakes and you should listen their songs.

Hope to go back to California soon. Maybe with Marcelo and Bacon :)
