This week’s Mellan photo…


Stay classy, Mellan.

Wedding photos for those interested ahead!


All photos  are courtesy of the very talented Rhee Bevere Photographywhich is a photography studio that specializes in candid photography.  I have an exceptionally camera-shy husband, you know!  Rhee and Kevin made a great tag-team and managed to grab some amazing shots throughout the ceremony.  If you are looking for a Bay Area photographer who captures moments, not just poses, I highly recommend them!  I was also incredibly impressed by the amazing shops and artists I found on Etsy to help me add personalized details.  Every single shop I worked with was excellent in customer service, accommodating my requests, and delivering early.
