These days there are so many different ways to celebrate a marriage: from eloping or having a small civil ceremony, to a large estate wedding or just a party! I love how every couple’s day is unique to them! Brandon and I chose to have our small wedding in the mountains on a Tuesday. It […]

Sometimes you get a feeling about people-a feeling that you’ll instantly get along and have lots to talk about. Well, the first time I spoke with these two on the phone I definitely had that feeling! From the fact that they’re both about to become nurses, to their love of travel and adventure, I knew […]

There’s nothing more attractive to me than the man I love in a well-fitted suit! So for our wedding day you can bet we put just as much effort into finding the right suit for Brandon as we did for my dress! Okay, maybe almost as much effort 😉 Because let’s be honest, it’s just […]

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. […]

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 […]

There’s something I love about having family photos taken in your own home! It feels so real and natural, and the photos tell the story of not just your family, but of your home as well! It always feels so incredibly special when I’m invited into someone else’s home to be a part of their […]

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 […]
