I met Jeanne and Brian last year when I photographed their engagement session in San Francisco. They were so fun together and their genuine happiness made it easy to capture the love and playfulness between them! So you can imagine I was thrilled when they asked me to photograph their wedding this year! For their intimate […]

There are few things as fun and inspiring to me in this photography world as getting together with other creative small business owners and making photo magic! We feed off of one another’s passion and creativity, and in the end create a product that’s elevated beyond what each of us could come up with individually. […]

What a pleasure it’s been to get to know so many people who come from near and far to be married at our gorgeous city hall in San Francisco! One thing I love about elopements is that I get to spend so much time with just the couple and get to know them on a […]

At the risk of sounding cliché, planning a wedding can feel overwhelming at times! There’s all this societal pressure to do things a certain way, and sometimes what we think we’re “supposed” to do can get in the way of what we want to do! But I’m here to say, “don’t let it!” Do you! […]

It’s such a pleasure to photograph friends! I’ve known Mary for years since we work together as ICU nurses in the city! We’ve also spent many winters together with girlfriends at Lake Tahoe! Those were days filled with snowboarding, hot tub soaking, games (salad bowl anyone?!), and reading aloud our online dating profiles (haha!). Fast […]

This year was a second annual girls trip for our group! It all spurred from something our guys have done together for years: for the first week of March Madness every year they rent a house and spend a few days of college-basketball-watching-bliss together. It’s quite the bromance! 🙂 Well, last year we decided to […]

I’m so stinking excited to show you my favorite personal project so far this year and my first ever styled photoshoot! That basically means that I had a vision in my head of something that I wanted to photograph, and then actually made it happen with the help of some other lovely creative folks! Working […]

When Brandon and I became engaged in the fall of last year, we knew that we wanted a unique engagement ring! One thing that I told him when I hinted at our future, was that I wanted my engagement/wedding ring to tell a story. I wanted it to tell our story! So when he proposed […]

Hilde and Nick met when they were in college in Washington, but it just so happened that they were going to separate schools on opposite sides of the state! Somehow they managed to make the long distance work all through college, only seeing each other 2 weekends a month, and on holidays and vacations. But […]
