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

One of my favorite locations lately for outdoor garden photos is 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 […]

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 […]

Modern Glam Kitchen & Bath by Marlene Design + Co

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 […]

90s Slumber Party Photoshoot

I had the absolute pleasure of teaming up with Kim Pirring on a retro summer photoshoot earlier this year (and we had the BEST time, by the way!), so when she pitched me this idea for a 90s slumber party shoot filled with fun accessories, silly moments, and soft pops of color, you bet I […]
