Zach and Erica. A pair of rings. Family. Good food. Wine. Love. It was simple and it was beautiful. Honored to be invited along to bear witness.
Then the windiest day after session along the edge of the Marin Headlands to boot. Such good things.

[audio:http://hughforte.com/blog/audio/sanfrancisco.mp3] Ahhh, what do you even say? 2013 was pretty neat. Mountains, deserts, oceans, up and down the West Coast, a little Midwest, a stop in the South, a European leg... It's a beautiful world out there.
This sort of journal entry would be entirely incomplete without expressing a huge thank you to my clients for inviting me along and allowing me to photograph these stories. I had a heck of a time, and I can't wait to make some new friends and some more pictures in 2014.
Sara and I are headed to New York tonight for a wedding in Brooklyn this weekend. Pretty fired up about that. This will be my first time to NYC, so I don't have an image of an epic Manhattan skyline or a taxi or a Ninja Turtle to share, but I do have a picture of Shannon and George cruising around in the hills at Chileno Valley Ranch from earlier this month. So there's that. Have a good week/end. Chileno Valley Ranch, Petaluma, CA
William is from Sweden. Margarida is from Portugal. We met up in Belgium and made some pictures. I dig that.
Sara and I are headed to Europe in a couple weeks and I'd love to make some portraits while abroad. If you're interested in booking a session during the dates listed below, please send me an email through the contact form or straight to connect [at] hughforte [dot] com. I'd love to see if we can get something dialed in. Thanks a bunch.

I spent last weekend celebrating marriage with Anna & Andrew. Then I spent the flight home culling their wedding and grinning at my computer screen.
