But everything aligned perfectly for Claire and Kai’s wedding day. For Claire and her girls, the morning began at the Camelia Inn in Healdsburg. The air […]

Summer Wedding at Trentadue Winery, Geyserville, Ca

Ohhhhh where do I even start with these two. Maybe we start with how moody and amazing the beach was? Or their adorable and sweet pup that joined us? How I can’t even begin to describe my excitement for their wedding in 2024? Or…let’s start with how Madeline repeatedly told me that she would be […]

Foggy Engagement Session on the California Coast

Want to hear a cute story? Bethany and David met each other in preschool. Yes, you read that right. They have known each other since the days of sticky peanut butter hands and finger painting. When they were in 5th grade, they were in a play together where they played each other’s love interests and […]

Engagement Session at the Legion Of Honor, San Francisco

When Michelle reached out to schedule family photos, I was so excited. I had met them the year before when I photographed their sweet family out at Goat Rock Beach. Having the opportunity to reconnect with families each year is so special. I love seeing how much the littles have grown and changed. This year, […]

Intimate Wedding at San Francisco City Hall

It’s hard to imagine a more magical place to get married, then on the bluffs in Mendocino. Nicole and Enrique said their “I do’s” along the gorgeous coastline of Mendocino. Of course, there are always parts of a wedding day that are beyond our control and slightly unpredictable. For Nicole and Enrique, that meant a […]

A Rainy November Wedding at Spring Ranch, Mendocino

I have a huge secret for you… You don’t need a reason to have pictures taken with your partner. Every season, every chapter, is worth documenting.

A Windy Session at Point Bonita Lighthouse

When Rachel and JR first reached out and started sharing their wedding plans with me, I was SO excited. Their wedding took place at the Odd Fellows Recreation Club, a beautiful camping oasis tucked into their redwoods along the Russian River. This venue was so unique because they don’t typically host events like weddings. But […]

Hands down one of my FAVORITE venues of 2022. Everything about this wedding was beautiful from beginning to end. Out of all the venues that I had photographed, this one was the most unique. Sarah and Matt said their “I Do’s” at the Chapel of Our Lady at the Presidio. The reception then followed over […]
