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!

vanessa + danny | CASA REAL WEDDING

I was immediately drawn to Vanessa and Danny’s¬†ability to find romance in the everyday, back when we first met up for this couple’s epic San Francisco engagement session. We explored the entire city together, from Legion of Honor, to Crissy Field, ultimately ending up at Baker Beach for those incredible sunset views of Golden Gate […]
