Jessica & Shane at Nella Terra Winery

This was such a lovely wedding at Nella Terra Winery in Sunol, California. A perfectly warm day, with plenty of warm smiles to match. Jessica and Shane just recently celebrated their one year anniversary and I figured it was finally time to get this gorgeous day up on the blog! They have so much love for each other and it radiated through every aspect of the day. With gorgeous details throughout the day complete with a fairytale ending by a weeping willow.

Enjoy!

Aimee & Brad’s Fort Mason Wedding

One of my favorite weddings of 2015! What do you get when you cross a classically beautiful bride, awesome location, and a warm summer day? You get THIS wedding. Aimee and Brad got married at the chapel at Fort Mason, and it could not have been a more perfect setting. From her beautiful and unique blush pink dress and veil, their laid-back classic style, and the vintage feel, I was in heaven! I found myself using a lot of black and whites, (and even a polaroid filtered image,) to really let the emotion do the talking in these photos. Even their ceremony was one of the most emotional ones I’ve witnessed so far, as you’ll see from the images.

Enjoy! Xx

Erika & Andrew’s San Luis Obispo wedding

Been reminiscing about warm summer days lately? I must have been too, since I’m finally getting around to posting this lovely summer wedding! (Although I must admit I do love the rain.)
Erika and Andrew chose the historic, quaint Jack House property in San Luis Obispo, California for their sweet summer nuptials. Complete with bright,vivid florals and summery details, it was a beautiful outdoor garden wedding.

Enjoy! xx

Shelley & Steve’s gorgeous Santa Rosa wedding

You probably remember this adorable couple from their beautiful sunset engagement shoot. (Click here if you need a refresher) The day took place at a beautiful vacation rental home in Santa Rosa, complete with infinity pool and beautiful palms and balustrades.They had a stunning Indian ceremony, with their own personal touch; instead of the groom riding in on a white horse, he came in on a motorcycle! They later changed into traditional wedding attire for their reception. We were graced with another gorgeous location and lovely weather, and made for a wedding day that left me awestruck!

Enjoy 🙂

Proposal and engagement

So I will be the first to admit… I’m pretty behind on my blogs, but that just means I’ve been busy, right? 😉

Anyways… I was so touched (and lets be honest, insanely excited,) when Ed reached out to me to shoot his proposal. He told me all about his fiancé and his love for her and I was literally brought to tears during our initial conversation. He told me his plan to take her to one of his favorite childhood spots, and we coordinated it from there. I hid out in a crowd of tourists with a super long lens (feeling a little like a sniper.) It was tough to get great shots without a bunch of people in the way, but I was able to capture the entire moment of him coaxing her onto the sand in her heels to when he dropped to one knee and she said yes.

Naturally, their engagement session was one of the happiest I’ve ever done, even for myself. It was all so fresh and exciting and you can truly see it in their faces.

So, guys, take my advice here, kill two birds with one stone (yep I said it, one less photo session you have to be put through?) and have your proposal photographed AND engagement photos to follow. You’ll both obviously be in a great mood, you’ll already be ready, and you’ll have every single moment captured. What could be better than that? She’ll love you for it even more.
Xx

Tamra & Ricky Married!

I’ve known Tamra for some years now, when we used to be coworkers, and I’m truly happy for her and to be a part of her day! I did a session with her and her amazing son (See Tamra & Robbie) and it’s been great working with her through such important times in her life. Her and her new husband both have wonderful children and all are now a big happy family. True love story!
Love this sweet country barn wedding on a perfect warm July

Cindy & Creighton 8.18.12

If I had to describe this wedding in one word, it’d be joyful. Everyone was happy and carefree the entire day, and it really made for a great wedding. The ceremony and reception were held at the groom’s father’s beautiful house out in the country, and it was a day of perfect weather. Everyone had such a blast, danced the evening away, and laughed and smiled like crazy.

Enjoy!

Griffin & Brian’s wedding 7-18-12

The lovely bride Griffin: being a photographer and former “Brookie” like myself, I was honestly somewhat worried about how she would react to having another photographer in charge of her wedding. (Besides the fact that photographers are notorious for hating being in front of the lens, and oh yeah… quite particular about how they are photographed.) All my worries went out the window as soon as it came time, though; her and her groom Brian were so easy going and a blast to work with. They were truly made for each other, and their love and adoration for each other is clear as day.

Even as the rain slowly started to fall on the beach during their ceremony, everything still ran smoothly and beautifully. Followed by a lovely reception at the Ventura Harbor Sheraton, it was an exciting, happy day had by all.

Enjoy!

Griffin and her bridesmaids wore pretty anklets and their bare feet for the beach ceremonyImageImageImageImage

Griffin wore her mother’s wedding vail; a very special touch.Image

Since the ceremony was barefoot, Griffin wore a pair of sparkly flats for walking around and at the reception… adorable!ImageImageImageImage
