The Engagement Session of Tara and Leonard

I shot this engagement session in San Mateo. They were supper friendly and adorable. Leonard surprisingly works as a teacher and I thought he was like maybe a graphic designer or something and miss Tara is a dispatcher so she must have lots of patience. It was really nice to get to know them for a couple of hours at least. I met Tara at a bridal fair and she won an entire trunk prize so all kinds of things she won and I was among that prize. There were I am sure other photographers who offered their services but I was happy to have been chosen. Anyway, I wish them all the best in their future!

Engagement Session of Natalie and Christopher

I had a lot of fun photographing these two in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. It was at Stow Lake and Strawberry Hill portion of the park. I never had been in that part before and they introduced me to a new location which I adored. It was like a little island that you walked around and they had waterfalls and a Japanese Tea Garden all in one area it was lovely. These two are so sweet I really enjoyed getting to know these two and very happy go lucky they are. Please stay tuned to their wedding photos soon!

Family session of Maria and Darrin

Every Year since the first child of theirs I have been doing their family photos. There is nothing more celebrating and endearing than seeing your past wedding clients having you take part in their lives when shooting their families. I certainly hope that I get to take their picture this year again. They are an adorable family.

The Wedding of Ryan and Charlotte

Their wedding was a lovely quaint wedding at the Beautiful Depot Hotel in Sonoma CA. It is a rustic late 19th century hotel. Charlotte was glowing and beaming she looked stunning. Ryan couldn’t get his eyes off his bride. It was a beautiful morning early afternoon wedding. At first I was kinda nervous about the lighting but honestly it worked out great. The first half of the morning was a bit cloudy then later the sun came out but it did turn out amazing. I love how they incorporated Lily their cute little pup. She was part of the bridal party. She had her own flower crown supper cute. Congratulations you two!
