Kunde in Summer

What can we say that could add to the majesty of Kunde Winery? In short, it is a dream. Cody and Brad were classic and in love, our favorite combination. On the top of a hill in a grove of oak trees surrounded by grapes, they danced the night away.

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?!

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.
