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

Shelley & Stephen Engagement

SO excited to post this session. We had a rare treat of a warm sunny day, AND a great sunset in San Francisco at Sutro Baths. This is one of my favorite locations since it’s so beautiful and has so many sites in one area. Such a sweet and fun couple and I had a blast shooting their engagement photos. Can’t wait for their Santa Rosa wedding in May!

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.

Mickey’s maternity

I realized I am a little behind in posting this blog when I had thought of the fact that this fabulous soon to be mama of two does now, in fact, have two! She gave birth to another darling little one just a couple weeks ago. Excited to meet him and photograph the sweet new addition!
Mickey is so sweet and full of life. We walked around the neighborhood getting different scenes, and even fully pregnant AND in heels she was happy, energetic, and graceful. So much fun, and the photos really capture that in her!

Stay tuned for a future post of her little one 🙂

The Meyers Family

When Dawn called me and told me her idea of of doing a shoot with her kids in their normal, daily lives at home as a way to capture memories before selling their current house, I immediately loved the idea. I really liked the spontaneity of it… from driving around in the flashy cadillac, to picking veggies in the garden, and everything in between. They were such an adorable pair, brother and sister Brant and Genna, and as a whole make such a fun, loving family. 

Enjoy!

Marissa & Justin

I recently spent a weekend with one of my old friends from middle school and her husband in San Francisco, and we decided it was the perfect time to do a shoot. They are already married, and recently had an anniversary so it was a perfect opportunity. They are such an amazing couple, and are a blast to be around. Also, this was my first shoot I’ve done in my favorite city, so I’m really excited about that as well.
As always,
Enjoy!
