Nghi + Tin – Casa Real

Lately I’ve been trying my hand at film, which has been an absolutely amazing adventure! I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to shoot N+T at the beautiful Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery. I loved strolling in the vineyard with these two, the lighting was just perfect.  I also adored their first dance under the beautifully dramatic chandelier!!

Tira + Aaron – Elopement / City Hall

For T+A’s elopement I shot strictly film, and I’m so glad I did! First stop, martinis and first looks at Hotel Zetta. The big windows offered lots of light. It was perfect!! Then it was off to City Hall, which I feel you can never go wrong. It’s always offering the best shots, especially if you go to the top floors. After the ceremony, the bride and groom ‘Got Baked’ with Mr. Holmes Bakehouse’s super yummy baked goods.

Will + Willis – Asilomar

Photographing W+W was such a treat!  Asilomar was bountiful with sweeping ocean views and amazing light, I almost didn’t want to leave!! Everywhere you looked, there was always something I wanted to photograph. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding as they said their vows under the trees in dappled light. Talk about dreamy!!
