St. Helena's Trespass Vineyard Rehearsal Dinner | Alison & Nick
I love the Napa Valley, so when I met Alison & Nick's family, a family who loves Napa so much that they'd fly everyone in from Texas to hold their wedding there, I knew things were going to be magical.  I couldn't have guessed just how magical it would be, though.  The rehearsal dinner, which was one hundred percent organized and arranged by the groom, Nick (so mu[...]

San Mateo Sugarloaf Engagement Session | Jennifer & Andy
This tender engagement photography session was so full of love, it felt like we were transported beyond the bustle that is the San Francisco Bay Area. The path along the hills of San Mateo's Sugarloaf Mountain was so narrow in places that Grace and I were practically climbing over each other, jockeying to get into position for our photos.  Jennifer and Andrew were so [...]

San Francisco Mission District Engagement Session | Orly & Zack
For her engagement photography session, it was important to Orly to incorporate elements of her heritage, so what better place than the diverse streets of San Francisco's Mission District?  Orly, Zack, and I visited the murals in Balmy Alley, then explored the Mission together, pausing wherever the light was beautiful.  Then, we visited the UCSF Medical Center's Rec B[...]

As we took their engagement photographs, they made me smile.  A lot.  The session was comprised of hours of playfulness,[...]
