Falling in love with Wine Country is like… falling in love. Fortunately Chad and Dana have done just that.  And this week they did that long drive up (the)101 from LA to finalize the details for their spring wedding at Chalk Hill Estate. While I don’t know if they’ve selected all of their vendors yet, I do […]

How do you surprise your partner with an engagement session?  Well, just like this… Kelly reached out to me and said we had to keep everything “hush hush”, or his girlfriend would find out what we were up to.  I followed the two of them to the beach and kept out of sight until the […]

This engagement session gave me the opportunity to photograph my favorite part of the Bay Area, my hometown of Oakland! Bianca and Debbie won this session from us at the Rebuilding Together Oakland charity event. They requested several locations around Temescal and the waterfront shore to capture some really industrial shots. We love the energy […]

Tom and Axel met me in the Castro for a gorgeous engagement session.  It will soon be Bon Voyage to Hawaii for the nuptials, and I cannot wait!  Congratulations to these handsome men!      

Our wonderful couple, Christina and Ian, joined me in Watsonville for an engagement shoot.  They chose Sunset Beach as a setting, and we were greeted by some birds that stole the show.  I can’t wait to photograph these two again, and I only have to wait until May!  

This adorable couple is getting married soon… very, very soon and I can’t wait! We met up last week at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay for a little warm-up to the big day. Given the awesomeness of these images, I think they’re going to do just fine in front of the camera.   […]

She Said YES!  

Mary Claire and Mat are getting married! To celebrate we met at Bartholomew Park Winery in Sonoma (it was once a hospital – Mat’s dad was born there!). MC and Mat are gorgeous, but I really think their stunning English Bulldog, Emma stole the show.

Congratulations to Mary Clare and Matthew on their engagement! We had such a great time in the city photographing at some great San Francisco hot spots. And the weather was wonderful for water wading. So excited for their wedding in October!

This fabulous and fun couple is getting hitched in San Francisco later this summer but decided to take their engagement photos at Sealy’s family ranch in the hills high above Calistoga.  (The history of this ranch and Sealy’s family is fascinating – she is from a great San Francisco family.)  I loved escaping the city […]

When you choose your engagement and wedding photographer, the next big decision is “what to wear?!”  These couples all inspire me and show some great fashion tips….  #8 is a great idea! aislinn kate alexandra grace alli ross amy clark photos celina colombo aspen diamond clipzine christina mcneill daniel ricci weddings  deliciousness grownupdressup inspiredbythis jasmine […]

Jose flew in from Michigan to partake in this session with his lovely bride-to-be, Victoria. Our newly engaged lovers brought their cute pup sporting a bow tie, and showed us their favorite spots around UC Berkeley’s campus.  Victoria is a recent graduate, and Jose is a frequent visitor.  They held out their long distance love […]

Tammi and Mike are getting next August at Villa Montalvo which is one of my FAVORITE venues!  I’ve always loved shooting here, and think this is the most awesome place to get married! I really love doing an engagement session before the wedding  — it’s a great way to get to know my clients better, […]

Shannon and Julio are getting hitched next year.  For their Engagement Session we started at the restaurant where they had their first date, their first fight, and got engaged!  Then we traipsed around our fabulous city.  How fun is that???  Now I REALLY can’t wait for their big day!      

Katie and Adam are getting married this weekend in Atherton, California. For their engagement shoot, we spent a foggy San Francisco afternoon exploring their neighborhood. I can’t wait for their wedding!

Today Kathy, Chris, and I traipsed around creating these fun photos at their favorite East Bay spots.  Cole Coffee (a favorite of mine too!), Dopo (their favorite restaurant), and Lake Merritt were our destinations.  Then they headed off to get their marriage license – what a fun day!

This adorable couple is getting married in September and we chose Cornerstone Gardens as the setting for their fabulous engagement shoot. (Can you tell that Cornerstone is one my favorite places in Sonoma?)  Love  this session and can’t wait for the wedding!

Elena and David are getting married in September! In preparation for the big day, we did an engagement shoot at Cornerstone Gardens. I loved their style! How cute is Elena’s dress?

I’m looking forward to Gena and Vittorio’s wedding in June. To prepare, we did a sweet engagement shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy Fields. Just a few more months!

My dear friends, Lucy and Miguel are renewing their wedding vows next month.  And Lucy finally gets the big wedding of her dreams.  I am thrilled and honored to be their wedding photographer!  As a little warm-up, we photographed these portraits earlier this week.  Love them!  (The photos AND the couple!)
