• Carmel Valley Ranch Wedding Photographer
  • Twisted WIllow Farm Wedding Photographer

Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog and entering my little world of Wedding and Engagement Photography. My name is Lili Durkin. I photograph weddings mainly in the larger Bay Area, from Napa to Carmel, but have traveled internationally to document love (and would love to do so anytime!). I love what I do- and know how incredibly blessed I am to be able to say that.

January 14th, 2014

Melissa and Matt chose the lovely Radonich Ranch as their wedding venue.  This wedding was chalk full of Melissa and Matt’s personal style. Melissa rocked cowboy boots with her wedding dress and Matt broke out a country star’s cowboy hat. This was such a fun wedding- congrats to Melissa and Matt!

Ben Lomand Wedding Photographer : Kristin and Bryan

September 4th, 2013

Kristin and Bryan’s lovely garden affair was held at her parents house in Ben Lomand. They were married under the shade of a beautiful oak tree and celebrated the rest of the evening playing games, dancing and dining with guests. I particularly enjoyed watching guests play the giant jenga game the Kristin and Bryan made themselves.

The time and care put into this beautiful event by Kristin, Bryan, and their families was so evident. From the games, pillows, desserts, beer (Yes! Bryan brewed the beer AND made a kegerator for it), to the gorgeous gown made by Kristin’s mother, their wedding was beautiful and unique. Congratulations Kristin and Bryan!!
