I have known Nate Lopez for many years. We went to church together and he also owns an event lighting company called Lightheaded designs. He is also the type of guy you would probably want around if you were stuck on an island or in some remote location and need to survive. Fortunately for Karrie, she will always have someone who can rescue her or create a contraption in a time of need. Nate is MacGyver. Nate and Karrie were married at Koinonia Conference Center in the Santa Cruz mountains on August 11, 2013. The location was probably the most beautiful setting I have scene for a wedding ceremony. It was perfect. Nate added his signature lighting touches and Karrie provided comic relief throughout the day. They are a fun couple, which made shooting quite easy.
As an aside, their photographer Phil had a Phantom DJI (helicopter) that we got to shoot with. The forest shots are quite epic.
