There were so many places we loved that we couldn’t just settle on one day of photos – so we did two. Figured we’d have a better chance of seeing San Francisco’s elusive sunset that way (and boy, did the universe deliver). Fran and Ben went surfing right before our first session. They live in […]

The bride herself is an incredibly talented photographer! It’s always a mark of great pride (and insane anxiety!!) whenever a fellow vendor reaches out to inquire about wedding services. Luckily for me, Rachel and Tim are hands-down […]
