Ashley + Kevin’s Fabulous Wedding

Ashley and Kevin’s wedding took place at 3 different venues. We started the day at the Stanford Park Hotel where Jerred, Vincent and I met them. Jerred went to hang out with Kevin and his groomsmen while Vincent and I shot Ashley’s dress, shoes, and invitations. As soon as we were done with the details Ashley got in her dress and we went straight to the courtyard for pictures of her with her friends and family.

An hour later we got in an old school bus that was converted in to a large Woody. It had a killer sound system and wood paneling on the inside. We proceed to rock out to Taylor Swift on the drive to the Church.

We arrived to Mission Santa Clara around 2pm for the ceremony. After the ceremony we did family portraits, bridal party pictures, and a few pictures of Ashley and Kevin in a record 30 minutes! We hopped back on the bus and our next stop was the Menlo Circus Club. It was stunning.

Right before sunset we strolled around the property to get a few more portraits and off to dinner!

Winter Wedding at Willow Heights Mansion

On December 3rd, 2016, Anabel and Tim got married and the day couldn’t have been more perfect! Anabel worked closely on the design of her wedding with the team from Willow Heights Mansion, who designed, planned and coordinated the event.

The ceremony was outdoors about an hour and half before sunset. Willow Heights Mansion is not only stunning on the outside; the interior of the venue is also a photographer’s dream. The inside is light grey with hints of white and large windows. It was a fabulous way to end our 2016 season!

City Hall

Joni and Stephen found me on Yelp.com while looking for a photographer to shoot their engagement and City Hall ceremony. Even with an appointment, City Hall weddings can take up to 2 hours, which gave us plenty of time to utilize the amazing space. We met at 12:30 for their 1pm ceremony that took place at my favorite spot in the building, the top floor. The windows are large and everyone looks fabulous in the soft mid-day light.

Freya + Tyler – SSS Ranch, Calistoga

We spent Saturday in Calistoga at the SSS Ranch, a favorite venue of mine. Lindsey with Oh La La Events did the planning and coordinating; she made the day feel seamless! The shoot began with Freya and her bridesmaids to photograph her dress and rings, while Jerred met Tyler and the guys at his cabin. Everything came together at the ceremony under a gigantic oak tree with the amazing Bella Rosa String Quartet accenting the occasion. After the ceremony Jerred headed to the cocktail hour while I sauntered to the party with the newlyweds. We hung-out on a grassy hill and then met up with their dog Max. The rest of the night was filled with dinner and dancing. Freya wrote me a fabulous review on Yelp!
