I've been shooting wedding photography for about 7 years now. Rachel met me in my second year of photographing weddings full time when I photographed her brother's wedding. At that time I got to get close with the family, fell in love with all of them. In instantly felt a connection with Rachel. We both had the same silly personalities. Creative minds. Always laughin[...]

I have to admit - I love a good party. Good whiskey, great music, and some people that just want to let loose and get a little crazy.  That is just what Kayley and Stephen delivered for me to document on their outdoor Lafayette wedding day. There was already a special bond in my heart for Kayley. I remember meeting her in my old stomping grounds of Hayward to chat ab[...]

I have a confession. I am a total nerd. Star Wars. Harry Potter. Game of Thrones. X-men. You name it, and I nerd snort over it. In fact I have spent a lot of my day today watercoloring a portrait of Harley Quinn from Batman fame. While listening to video game soundtracks. Yeah, I am pretty far down the nerdy rabbit hole. Which is probably why I got along so well[...]

You probably remember their epic Big Sur engagement session where we went on a little adventure.  After photographing them on that windy day on the coast, I was so ridiculously excited for their wedding. I am happy to say, it didn't disappoint! If there is one thing I took from their wedding, it is that Raichelle and Ben ar[...]

You ever just have that feeling that you found your people?  Well the day that I got to photograph Kelsey and Matt's wedding at The Mountain Terrace in Woodside, I instantly had that feeling. Watching all of these long time friends together at this celebration really gave me that sense that this whole group was one big happy family. Everyone joking with one another. [...]

The Bucket List

I freaking love my job. Photography has given me such amazing opportunities in life. Photographing weddings have given me the ability to see things that I never dreamt I would see as a small town girl from Castro Valley, California. However, I have been blessed enough to photograph weddings at some of the places on my travel bucket list including New York, Baltimore, [...]

There's truly no rules in weddings. Sure the wedding blogs and magazines tell you there are certain fashions, rituals, and songs that need to take place on your big day. You can choose to go with it, or choose what feels good to you. What really represents the two of you as a couple? Chelsea and Evan really thought about this concept when they started planning thei[...]
