zola + austin | PEACHTREE CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND CHASTAIN HORSE PARK WEDDING

Love is in the details. The story behind the bride’s dress. How each and every guest is connected. The way a groom’s face changes as his bride walks down the aisle. If there is anything I’ve learned from the hundreds of weddings I’ve attended over the years, it’s to look for the details. The day […]

melissa + kellen | LOVE BENEATH MY WINGS

Inquiries for at-home weddings and backyard celebrations have been popping up more and more in my inbox, and I figured it was long past overdue to share this intimate wedding editorial I photographed last year in northern California! Beautifully designed by Cali and her team over at SmittenKiss, this love story is layered in romantic […]

Michael and I recently returned from our honeymoon abroad, and I’m so excited to share some of my favorite images taken in Indonesia with you all! We spent three incredible weeks traveling through Singapore, Indonesia, and Taiwan. Honestly speaking, my giant beast of a film camera (the Contax 645, which weighs nearly 5lbs with all […]

Engagements

liz + wes | SUTRO BATHS + DOWNTOWN ENGAGEMENT

The light truly loves these two. Waking up before sunrise to explore the quiet morning scenes of San Francisco with Liz and Wes was worth every single minute of lost sleep. I typically recommend conducting engagement sessions either early in the day or later towards the evening, for a variety of reasons from ideal lighting […]

aarthi + madhur | BOTANICAL GARDEN AND LAND’S END ENGAGEMENT

What do you get when you combine a stunning couple with their shared love of exploration? These two spent several weekends scouting multiple locations for unique photo backdrops, and thanks to their hard work in planning, I’m so excited to share these incredibly beautiful engagement photos!

Engagements

chelsea + micah | STANFORD CAMPUS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

There are so many reasons why I strongly recommend engagement sessions, but one of the top advantages has got to be the rapport and relationship I’m able to build with my couples before their big day. The story of your life and the loved ones in it starts well before you ever decide to get […]

amelia + alvin | SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL

What commonly springs to mind at the words “city hall wedding” is an image of a simple, quick, low-key elopement… but that mental picture isn’t of a wedding held in San Francisco’s City Hall! This local icon, built in 1915, boasts a dome that is 42 feet taller than the dome on the United States […]
