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.

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!!
