rachel + victor | CASA REAL WEDDING

Rachel and Victor’s wedding was some of the most fun I’ve ever had while photographing, and I’m still so amazed by the sheer number of events we managed to fit into this incredible day! The day kicked off early in the morning with Rachel and her sweet bridesmaids. It was so apparent how special each […]

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 […]

danielle + craig | ATLANTA HISTORY CENTER WEDDING

Last year, I photographed my way across San Francisco with a newly engaged couple of adventurers who, after an afternoon of unforgettable photos and my crash-course introduction to Persian cuisine, I am thrilled to call friends. This year, I had the pleasure of capturing their wedding day. From the very beginning, Danielle has filled a […]

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 […]

helena + sunny | ROCKY’S LAKE ESTATE WEDDING

Earlier this year, I had the delight of photographing Helena and Sunny for their engagement in the very neighborhood I had grown up in. This November, I had the extreme joy of capturing their wedding and all the incredible moments that day held – from their tender first look on a bridge over turquoise water, […]

kaitlyn + victor | MONTALVO ARTS CENTER WEDDING

In 1912, James Duval Phelan began construction on his beautiful Italian Mediterranean Revival-style home in the Saratoga countryside of California. Before his death, he declared that Villa Montalvo, which had become a home of arts and culture in Northern California, should become a public park. Thus the Montalvo Arts Center, which now boasts a variety […]

rebecca + charlie | SAN RAFAEL PEACOCK GAP CLUBHOUSE WEDDING

Where do I possibly begin with this dream wedding?! I first met Rebecca and Charlie when they graciously trekked up from their home in South Bay to a tiny deli in Daly City for our consultation. It was immediate to me that these two were drawn together by something crazy powerful and completely right. These […]

Weddings

natalie + eric | CHABOT SPACE AND SCIENCE CENTER OAKLAND WEDDING

When these two first reached out regarding their wedding, I immediately knew it would be an incredible celebration. Eric and Natalie’s wedding was entirely “themselves” to a tee, hitting all the right notes of their love of space, nature, and family. These two exchanged vows at Oakland’s scenic Chabot Space and Science Center, on one of […]

loan + scott | HAGGIN OAKS SACRAMENTO WEDDING

From the moment I heard Loan and Scott’s love story (which you can read more about on my blog post of their engagement session!), I have been counting down the days until their wedding. I knew that their wedding theme, “Love Grows”, would mean natural and organic florals arranged to set my heart astir, but […]

sarah + brian | BENTLY RESERVE WEDDING

Boy meets girl. Girl fails to hit it off with boy (a longer story that Brian will never quite let Sarah live down). They both end up coming around, and girl marries boy. It sounds like the script of the latest Hollywood romantic comedy, but it was the unscripted real life love story that left […]
