erica + stephen | MT. TAMALPAIS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I can’t get enough of these sunset engagement sessions! I recently traveled up to scenic Mount Tamalpais State Park with Erica and Stephen, and the views there definitely didn’t disappoint.

The weekend-long wedding celebration of Madhuri and Gaurav’s marriage was […]

I definitely share this sentiment […]

Alas.. despite all the photographic evidence I have that California is the BEST […]
