2020 has been a strange year for all of us. My husband, Brandon, and I had originally planned to go on a backpacking trip in the Eastern Sierras this fall to celebrate our anniversary, but with the crazy fires (and COVID), we had to adjust a bit. Instead of backpacking like we did last year, […]

I’m so happy to finally sit down and put this guide together for you all! After photographing many city hall weddings and elopements over the past few years (my wedding photography career started there!), I’ve learned the ins and outs of San Francisco city hall and a few tips and tricks about how to make […]

I absolutely love photographing interiors designed by Marlene Design + Co! Her attention to detail is amazing and her designs are so clean and bright! (See another one of her design projects here.) I also appreciate the ability to compare subtle differences in lighting and angles with her and debate questions such as, “should the […]

Now that it’s officially getting colder and I’m busting out my winter jackets, I thought it would be fun to look back at one of my favorite trips from this past year (and a much warmer time): a bike trip through Slovenia and Croatia! I can’t believe that it was just a few months ago […]
