Engagements

kirsten + peter | COYOTE HILLS REGIONAL PARK ENGAGEMENT

Kirsten and Peter are absolute dream clients. Like, I could squeeze my eyes shut right now and try and imagine my dream couple and dream engagement session, and these two would waltz right in. This was my first engagement session for a 2019 wedding booking, and I’m SO happy with how I feel about these […]

Engagements

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. These two both work in the medical field with absolutely INSANE alternating schedules, and our time together was one of the only days that month […]

Anniversary

christy + cameron | COYOTE HILLS REGIONAL PARK

I was so excited to photograph this little family’s casual portrait session, especially after I found out that we would have a bit of a celebrity joining in on our shoot.. little miss Eva, to be exact! This sweet golden retriever puppy has the most adorable Instagram feed, thanks to her talented photographer mom, Christy. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Anniversary

saumya + ashish | PARIS TUILERIES GARDEN + LOUVRE COUPLES SESSION

Saumya and Ashish’s couples session in Paris was so full of meaning to me. I last photographed these two about three years ago, shortly after their engagement and before their big wedding festivities in India. It’s hard to put into words how meaningful it felt to reunite with the two of them on a quiet […]

Portraits

kirsten + tyler | PARIS EIFFEL TOWER SESSION

After a year of pursuing photography full-time, I decided earlier this season to host a portrait session giveaway with two winners, one in each of the two cities that I most often work in. I was so thrilled to pull Kirsten’s entry out of my random name generator (thank you Internet for creating things I […]
