Already reflecting on 2017

I have so much excitement I almost cannot contain it. So many creative ideas flooding my head lately. Plans on how to make a wedding photography experience with me be one of love and happiness.  I don't want to merely give my couples pretty photographs. I want to give them an incredible experience having their wedding story photographed. In my work, I try not to co[...]

Julia and Taylor | Come and get your Love

I remember the day that Julia and I first chatted on the phone about her upcoming wedding to the love of her life, Taylor.  In the first ten minutes, I felt like this woman could have been a lifelong friend. We shared the same sense of humor, the same love of laughing and the same view on weddings. She wanted to find a storyteller for her day, rather than someone who [...]

"I was her's after the first date," Brett told me in between taking portraits of him and Louise overlooking the stunning Los Gatos mountains. I felt the enormous amount of radiating as I walked into Louise's bridal room. Her ladies were all dressed in their matching robes excited to watch their friend get married. Gifts were being exchanged. Laughs and hugs everywher[...]

Let me tell you about this wedding in the beautiful Upstate New York. All things happen for a reason. The little annoyances. The things that just don't work out. The disappointments. It may take some time but eventually, you will look back and realize it was for the best. When Ben and Liz inquired about me photographing their wedding it was supposed to be in Yosem[...]

This couple threw one of the most classy and elegant weddings I have ever seen. It took place at the historic Legion of Honor in San Francisco. A windy day in the city made for the perfect backdrop to their soft pink palettes. The way these two look at each other are better than any words I could possibly write here...   Venue: Legion of Honor  Coordinat[...]

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[...]
