2.24.17Maria and MarcosWedding at Carmel Mission Church and Perry House in Monterey ⎜ Marcos and Maria

The Mariachi band played loudly in the background as we made our way around the courtyard of the gorgeous Carmel Mission Church.  I’ve never shot portraits to music before… I kind of like it…maybe I should come up with a theme song, make Geo learn the guitar, and have him follow us around while playing it during photo sessions.  ;P We had a lovely time photographin[...]

2.19.17Joanna and MattMarines Memorial Club and Hotel Wedding in San Francisco

“We have to have a photo with the dogs and one with these cigars!”  “OMG yes, let’s combine the two ;)  How about you pick the dogs while ‘smoking’ the cigars?”  “Yes!” “I know this is going to sound crazy but I’d like to take a photo of you in front of the window in the bathroom on the 2nd floor.”  “Sure!”  Matt and Geo joined us to watch. Joanna and Matt were [...]

A Kilt is always a fun wardrobe choice for the Groom 😜 Heidi and Phil's wedding took place at St. Vincent de Paul Church and the Petaluma Women's Club last Saturday. Thankfully mine and Geo's lucky rain streak continues! (In 6 years we've only encountered no-way-we're-going-outside all day rain twice!) It was a perfectly beautiful day!  💖 Congratulations Heidi and Phi[...]

1.4.17Rachel and FelipeWedding at San Francisco City Hall

A rare moment! 😲 The City Hall steps were completely EMPTY!! I happily and quickly grabbed a few gorgeous photos of Rachel and Felipe before a few tourists and security guards filled them back up again. I think they turned out pretty nice 🤓 We loved photographing this short and sweet city hall wedding 💖 It was also wonderful to see Alice and Stuart and some other fami[...]

12.3.16Alisha and MattWedding at the Claremont Hotel and Brazilian Room in Tilden Park

Standing in the beautiful lobby of the Claremont hotel with so much amazing artwork, decorations, and splendor surrounding us, my eyes go straight to a shaggy white bench with the thought “It would be hilarious if the groom, Matt, were to lay on that for a photo”  :P  Before each wedding I try to quickly scope out backdrops that would be great for photos and that is w[...]

11.12.16Kerry and AnnaWedding at Jack London Square and District in Oakland

We photographed Anna and Kerry's lovely wedding in Oakland last weekend; portraits were shot in Jack London Square and ceremony/reception at District.  While it had been raining a lot the past couple of weeks, the skies parted for Kerry and Anna, giving them a beautiful sunny day for their wedding! 😍  We loved their intimate standing ceremony and lounge style receptio[...]

9.17.16Jillian and JasonWalden West Science Center in Saratoga

Jillian and Jason's wedding last Saturday was awesome! Video games (particularly Kingdom hearts) played a very big role in their relationship so they incorporated elements from Kingdom Hearts and Disney into their details, music, and ceremony. They even incorporated sharing "Paopu fruit" (as a jelly)😍, from Kingdom Hearts, as part of their ceremony where "If two peopl[...]

Jenny and Tommy tied the knot at Camp Loma Mar, a summer camp that Jenny went to as a teenager. It's an absolutely beautiful for a rustic wedding amongst the redwoods. Plus their guests got to stay in their cute cabins for the weekend, which is a plus 😉 Jenny and Tommy are incredibly sweet and we had a great time photographing their wedding! Also, I love that we reena[...]
