Anniversary

charielou + gabriel | SUTRO BATHS LAND’S END ANNIVERSARY SESSION

Charielou and Gabriel are absolutely the type of couple worth getting up early for. On a trademark misty San Francisco morning, long (LONG) before my typical morning alarm call, I headed out the front door to photograph a sunrise anniversary session at two of my favorite locations in the city. I definitely share this sentiment […]

Anniversary

maansi + krishna | MATANZAS CREEK WINERY LAVENDER FARM

I’ve been here on the west coast for a little over three years now, and I’ve got to admit, I was 100% convinced in the beginning that I would ultimately convince my entire Atlanta friend group to make the leap with me. Alas.. despite all the photographic evidence I have that California is the BEST […]

chelsea + micah | VALLEY UNITED PRESBYTERIAN + DOMENICO WINERY WEDDING

When I met these Yale college sweethearts to photograph their engagement session, I knew immediately from their easygoing laughter and loving attention to each other that they were completely meant to be! It was a truly magical moment when, at a fairytale wedding venue filled with glittering candles, flowers by Busy Bee’s Floral Design and […]

tamarind + blush wedding | TYGE WILLIAM CELLARS SONOMA

I’m so excited to share this feature that recently went live over at 100 Layer Cake! This incredible session was dreamt up by Morgan of Spreading Lovely, with major inspiration derived from the idea of a luxurious velvet tamarind linen. We envisioned the modern couple who is willing to go outside of the box and […]

Family

paola + rodrigo | LAND’S END + SUTRO BATHS MATERNITY SESSION

I’m guilty of focusing a lot of my displayed work on primarily weddings, anniversaries, and engagements, but family sessions are something quite near and dear to my heart as well. There’s something magical in those last few weeks of waiting for baby to arrive, and I’m so grateful to have gotten the chance to document […]

Weddings

judy + greg | SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL ELOPEMENT WEDDING

One of my absolute favorite parts of this job has got to be photographing weekday elopement weddings at San Francisco’s city hall! Asides from the fact that Michael and I got married there in 2017 (who am I kidding – returning to this space and reliving all those memories is a HUGE part of why […]

Engagements

alicia + yilok | TILDEN BOTANICAL GARDEN ENGAGEMENT

The botanical garden at Tilden Park is one of my favorite getaways in the East Bay. It’s very quiet and tucked away, especially compared to the nearby Berkeley Botanical Gardens (another wonderful place to visit if you ever get the chance!). There’s very little foot traffic at this particular garden, which means you can wander […]
