Turtle Hill Engagement

Sarina and Bryant met Jill and I at Baker Beach about 2 hours before sunset. We normally me there an hour later but this time, I decided to live on the edge. I love how the pictures turned out. The sun is higher and reflecting off the water to create a soft cloud of light around them. We ended at Turtle Hill in the Sunset.

Marin

Brooke, Angel and Miss Ray met me at Old Mill Park in Marin around 6pm on a Saturday evening. The light could not have been better! After about 30 minutes in the park we headed to my favorite spot on Mt. Tam so we could be there as the sun was setting.

Chrissy + Micheal

Team Jolin spent April 1st at Ravenswood Historical Site in Livermore where the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The day started with everyone getting ready for the ceremony, Chrissy in the bridal suite with her mother, and Michael getting his boutonniere in place out on the grounds. The ceremony was short and sweet with 2 readers and flower petals for guests to throw after the kiss.

 

The light at Ravenswood is epic and it’s all because of the trees. The reception was filled with Japanese maples that did wonders diffusing the light. We started taking portraits near the ruins at that back of the property and then stumbled upon a killer oak tree. Dinner was a casual, cocktail hour-esque buffet with no set itinerary. Around 6:00pm dancing and toasts started. The last event was Chrissy and Michael’s exit in the pedicab off to their next party!

Rockridge Day Spa

If you live in Oakland, you need to check out Rockridge Day Spa! I’ve been going here for years and this month I’ve begun updating their photography. We started with headshots of the whole staff and last week they threw a bridal event where I set up a table of pictures. Check out the eyelash comparison. It makes me want lash extensions every day. Enjoy!
