I accompanied my dear friends from Australia to celebrate their 25th at the Grand Canyon and came up with this idea. Congrats Lael and Rich!
I have to say, I feel quite blessed with my position- witnessing the rituals I am so fortunate to document.
I just love a good challenge! After hours in Photoshop, Lily the puppy, joined the groom and groomsmen racing down a street here in Alameda. The guys were such good sports- it must’ve been 95 degrees!
Laura and Joe were married by California Governor Jerry Brown on his family ranch. I fell head over heals in love with the governor’s rickety old barn!
After a month of planning, we pulled it off! A spectacular, Golden Gate Bridge engagement photo!
What a sunset we had tonight!
Hannah ❤ Nic!
I’m so proud! I was featured on this blog, written by one of the brother of one of my brides, at a wedding in Yosemite. What an appropriate time to re-post this lovely written piece!
Grace and Chen were married at San Francisco’s City Hall two days ago and we had Grace pose in a window. She so exemplified the feel of the building with this classic, art deco pose with the same style of window- it was mighty fun!
Stephanie and Ben were married at Westover Winery in Sunol on a stunningly gorgeous fall day!
My very first attempt with a pinhole camera at the beautiful Estancia Hotel and Spa in La Jolla, CA!
Such a magical spot!
It was supposed to pour, but lucky Amy and John from Amsterdam had a beautiful day plus a full (faint) rainbow– so rare in San Francisco! YAY!
Amy and Jeff tied the knot at Rockwall Winery here in Alameda. Such a sweet day!
Grace and Chen are being married in China next month, but wanted to do their wedding portraits on the west coast of California! Lucky us! My partner, Edwin and I had such a beautiful sunset to work with and they were thrilled with the outcome! Yay!
My first attempt at the Brady Bunch photo idea that’s going viral! It was so fun to art direct Laurie and Kim’s besties! 🙂
Jeremy and Ernest and their family celebrated their God-given right to marry in San Francisco’s City Hall last week. Flying in from Louisiana, it was a honor to witness and to shed tears with these two lovely men!
Well, I guess it’s apparent that I’m not the best at blogging! I’d much rather get my couples their wedding photos in under two weeks! With 9 weddings in August and my average is 10 days in getting photos back to my couples, I guess it’s how I like to operate! With that said, here are a few from this month, but I still have two weddings left! Yay! Seriously- there’s no one who loves a wedding more than me! : )
The Palace of Fine Arts with no people!?!? Whaaaat?!?!
. Thanks for having me, m’dear! ♡♡♡♡
The best glass-breaking shot I’ve ever photographed.
First day back home from a vacation to Iceland (!) and I get a call that I won 2nd Place in the Palo Alto Daily Newspaper’s People’s Choice Awards for Best Photographer in the Mid-Peninsula! Yippee!
Oooh- I have to tell someone! Gump’s just called- they want me back as the only photographer again at their exquisite bridal fair, February 23rd! Swoon!

And, earlier today, I got a note from Adobe asking me to be a Pre-Selection Panelist again for their 2014 Adobe Design Achievement Awards! What a day! 🙂
Mazel tov, Samantha and Andrew! Tonight was epic!
Gosh- how far behind I am on posting weddings! I think there must be 25 I haven’t written about this year. Alas, but it’s always been my priority returning wedding photos to couples 2-weeks after their wedding day instead of writing the blog and doing marketing! As it should be!
Kristina and Scott had a charming, holiday wedding yesterday at the Piedmont Community Church and Guild Hall. The alter was covered with poinsettias- it was utterly gorgeous!
Anyhow, my very best wishes for fulfilled dreams to us all and a lovely 2014!
Gosh- I had such a boatload of fun at Janelle and Farhad’s wedding!
We recreated a few Pinterest fav’s plus had fun with a vintage Corvette and some awesome rain clouds!
