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!

The Wedding of Robert and Ashley

Robert and Ashley’s wedding was at the beautiful Granite Bay Golf Club. Exquisite rolling hills lavished with Oak Trees a wonderful scene for a fantastic wedding. And so it was. Ashley is in love with everything Disney and she put together in a very simple and grown up way of implementing Disney into her wedding decor. She is also a big fan of Pepsi which was a big hit on her day. This two were balls of energy and I had fun photographing them enjoy the photos!

The Wedding of Ignacio and Noemi

These two couldn’t be anymore adorable if they tried. I loved the first time I met them. They are so open and friendly and funny. Ignacio has a real sense of humor and Noemi is more grounded it really is a good balance for the both of them. On their wedding day you can feel the love between and that love spewed over with the family as well. Although it was a very big wedding, it felt cozy and warm. They had their wedding ceremony at The Gorgeous Mission in Hayward California. The grounds are not the biggest but very beautiful none the less and many picture moment opportunities. It was a fun wedding. Enjoy the photos!

The Engagement Session Of Jessica and Robert

I had the pleasure of photographing these two at the lovely Heather Farm in Walnut Creek CA. The grounds have this beautiful rose garden and during our session it was in full bloom. It was a warm and sunny summer morning we shot their engagement photos. Usually I love to shoot primarily in the evening but really early in the morning is just as nice lighting wise as it is in the evening. Stay tuned for their wedding pics.
