I am so excited to share the sneak peek from the gorgeous wedding of Derek and Jun at the amazing Carmel Mission Ranch. Derek and Jun are the epitome of sweet love. From the moment I met these two and learned of their whirlwind romance spanning the Pacific I was enthralled at how much they treasured each other with complete devotion.

Derek talked with the simplicity of, “when you know you know.” That single-minded devotion loving his now wife was so inspiring to me. I saw this dedication played out over and over again throughout the day. Jun was so generous with her love, hospitality, and kindness throughout the event that I left feeling well cared for even as I was there to serve them.

I can’t even express how much of a blessing it is to have clients that are this amazing and weddings this beautiful to share in the love of couples this fantastic. I wish nothing but the best to both of you and your families as you journey though life together! Thank you for having Studio Six be your wedding photographers. <3

    Jun Shi - Thank you Kristy for everything! We are very lucky to have you taking pictures for our the most important event in our life.ReplyCancel

I love this family! I have known them for a little while now and when they asked me to take their pictures in their new home I immediately thought, COOKIES!! I love capturing families doing what they do best, having fun and loving each other. These for do those two things extra well!

Not only that but they live near an empty lot with this gorgeous oak tree. I am a sucker for a gorgeous oak tree.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!


Ian and Whitney are so great! They are both still in school and they are crazy about each other. I loved how much they were into each other.

My favorite part of this session was how mature they both were about their relationship and lives. It was so refreshing to encounter a young couple with such clarity.

Thanks for having me do these images for you guys. I hope you can treasure them so for many years to come!blog1blog2blog3

I had so much fun during this session. I was cracking up the whole time. Between the little brother who was so fun and the interactions of the two sisters, I honestly just felt right at home with these guys.

We did this session in the open space behind their amazingly gorgeous house. I love old oak trees and open spaces, this was practically my heaven!


I have always had a dream that our family would take a day and wander into the woods to find a Christmas tree Griswold style. I am so glad we finally did it this year.

I have had a lot of friends ask about the process to be able to go get your own tree so I thought I would post here about how we got our tree. Here are the basics of going out to get your own tree in Northern California. Tree permits are available from the National Forest Service. We visited Plumas National forest but if you are closer to Lassen, Mendocino, Tahoe, etc… you can go to other forests too ( The permits are $10 and they come with a map and a tag for the tree along with very minimal instructions on what you are looking for.

From there you are on your own. You have some guidance on the map about where you can and can’t choose a tree but really, there is not much to go off of. We chose to get our permit from the Wagon Wheel Market then to go up HWY 162 over Lake Orville. From there, the first landmark on the map that was recognizable to me was Four Trees so we just looked for that.

We kept seeing people coming down the mountain with trees so we knew to keep going and keep going. After driving for about 45 minutes we saw a nice wide gravel road so we pulled over to that. It ended up be the unmaintained road 23N8OY. This road leads to Duffey Dome eventually. As we were eating our packed lunches on the side of the road we started to see cars coming out with beautiful Noble Firs. Then we saw about 4 or 5 trucks pull in to that road only to be followed by 4 or 5 more coming out. We knew we must have hit the jackpot. We asked one of the families coming out how far up the road the trees were and they said there was a giant field about 3/4 of a mile up.

Off we went. Taking our non 4-wheel drive mini-van on a muddy and rough gravel road. We had to stop a ways up and hike the rest of the way in to avoid getting stuck. Once we arrived to the tree area we were blown away. There were perfect Noble Firs as far as the eye could see. We finally fixated on a gorgeous 12 footer. I could have kept hiking around all day but it was raining and didn’t want to keep the kids out in the cold any longer.

This was an amazing experience. I am so in awe of our gorgeous tree.




And here she is! (this is an iphone picture)
