When Jess and Raymond reached out to me about photographing their wedding and told me how much they loved color, I knew that it was going to be a good match! And when I saw their bright and whimsical flowers covering the most beautiful summer garden venue, my heart did a little dance! All the […]

InterContinental Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea Coastal California Wedding

It was an absolutely perfect northern California wedding day filled with coastal charm, an outdoor reception, and that touch of evening fog that we’ve grown to know so well in the Bay Area.

Despite all the trouble that COVID has caused for the world (and for couples trying to plan a wedding), one thing I’ve enjoyed about the past few years is the creativity and variety of different wedding celebrations that have surfaced.

Photographer Studio Lifestyle + Branding Session at The Sunlight Space

As a photographer, the ultimate compliment is having a fellow photographer ask me to take his/her photos! (See here and here) Especially when it’s someone as amazing as Emily Kim Photography, who specializes in brand photography!

Fall Engagement Photos at Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto

It’s free and open to the public (unless there’s a wedding or event, in which case half of the space is usually blocked off but most of the garden pathways still remain open). Plus it looks different every […]

This year I’ve had the pleasure of working with Marissa and Kelsey from House of Fete on 2 different photoshoots for Care Bears. Yup, you read that right…the actual Care Bears! If you’re around my age you might remember growing up with Care Bears (I even remember Care Bear sheets at our house!) and watching […]

When Shannon first inquired with me about wedding photography, I immediately fell in love with her vibrant and welcoming personality!

How to Prepare for a Brand Photoshoot

Have you ever taken one look at someone, and just absolutely fallen in love with everything about them? (And no, don’t think about your partner – that’s cheating!) As a photographer, I get to work with many people, in many stages of their lives. And many times I’m falling in love with every bit of […]

Bodega Bay California Elopement

This has to be one of the most magical elopements I’ve ever photographed! Not only do the bride and I have a special connection (she and I met while working for another photographer in Bodega Bay and we’ve photographed many weddings together over the years), but the backdrops were stunning and we had every bit […]
