danielle + craig | SAN FRANCISCO ENGAGEMENT SESSION

These two are ALL about travel and adventure. Danielle and Craig first met on a cruise ship over three years ago.

kristina + mitch | TILDEN PARK ENGAGEMENT

Kristina and Mitch and their sunny engagement session have been brightening up my screen all week! I loved getting to know these two (and their adorable pup) better as we explored the various trails of Tilden Park and Lake Anza together. Whether we were dancing through the woods or simply trying to find where the walkway […]

SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL ENGAGEMENT

I try to create images that show a glimpse into […]

olivia + perry | NAPA VALLEY VINEYARD PROPOSAL

When I first skimmed over Perry’s inquiry email, I felt like my heart skipped three beats. HOT AIR BALLOON. NAPA. POP THE QUESTION. Oh my gosh, what a dream proposal! We connected over the phone that very night and I was thrilled to hear just how thoughtful of a guy Perry was. He had done […]
