Newcastle Garden Wedding

Max and Aaron were married on a beautiful afternoon in the most stunning Newcastle venue. I was elated to stay at my parents’ house the night before, because for the first time in a few years the venue was close to where they live. The sunset was amazing, and the photo locations were to die for. The owner of the property had to carry Max over the fence and drove us through the river in order to get to one of the photo spots. We loved every single one of the details, especially the romantic lights and beautiful cake. Can every ceremony cake look like this?!

Backyard June Wedding

We are such a sucker for backyard weddings! Angela and Matt were the perfect picture of smitten lovers in love. We did a first look with them on the front porch, and strolled around with champagne as we snapped candids of the bridal party hanging out and enjoying each other. The light could not have been better for their sunset portraits. We used Portra 800 and shot the whole reception on film. We love the realistic color that film gives to skin tones.

Saratoga Redwoods

Shooting film in complete shade can be hard, but Nicole and David’s images turned out stunning! We love shooting in trees, especially with couples as sweet as this. Can you tell there was lots of laughter and happiness? Small creeks, light in the trees, long tables, and lots of smiles. Thank you again for allowing us to be part of your special day.

San Francisco Urban Wedding

It doesn’t get more special than Sadie and Reid. Sweet Sadie is a pastor of Bethany United Methodist Church, and Jerred and I had the honor of photographing her beautiful wedding right here in San Francisco. They wanted an urban feel to their images, so we drove around Noe Valley and ended with a sunset in Burlingame. Beautiful, natural, and effortless. Sunsets and people in love never get old.

Chateau St. Jean Wedding

Calling the weather a warm afternoon would be the understatement of the year. At 112 degrees during the peak of any other day might have been unbearable, but there is always extra magic floating around when it comes to love and weddings. They cuddled and laughed during their portraits like a pro, and Liz’s hair somehow remained perfect throughout the whole day- see for yourself! Liz and Craig wanted a Great Gatsby feel to their wedding, and we think they pulled it off with flying colors! Sunset time in Kenwood can be somewhat difficult because of the hills towards the coast, but I was lucky enough to steal them away for a short sunset session right before the first dance.
