Molly and Jacob’s Santa Cruz Redwoods Session by Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter
These gems. I loosely met Molly in 2017 when I purchased a dress from her, but then we ended up in a group chat together later in the year. She really has become one of my closest confidants over the past year and a half and my life has been so enriched since becoming her friend.
Jacob is pretty incredible too. Like, I don’t know how two people who are just so equally good found one another, but I’m so happy that they did.
I was in that part of California at the beginning of April and got to stay with them for a few days throughout the week. It was such a treat to be able to spend so much time with them. Molly and I got to go thrifting (she has an amazing little vintage store you should check out. ) and showed me all of her favorite haunts in Santa Cruz.
The morning I had to fly to Italy we went back to the redwoods to do a quick little session near a very random koi pond. Honestly, if I could just shoot in the middle of redwoods forever I’d be happy. Especially if there’s some cute little fish close by.
P.S. Check out Mountainside Made. She made the earrings Molly is wearing in the shoot, and I’ll be shooting some more of her jewelry here soon.
