San Francisco Swedenborgian Church Elopement | Barry & Greg

San Francisco Swedenborgian Church Elopement | Barry & Greg
Barry planned her entire San Francisco elopement from her home in Texas via the Internet, and what an incredible job she did!  When she told me she'd selected the Swedenborgian Church for their very intimate ceremony (all of five people - Barry & Greg, the officiant, the pianist, and myself,) I knew we were in for a treat.  Following the ceremony, we spent some ti[...]

Sierra Mountain Snow Wedding, Foresthill | Shion & Paul

Sierra Mountain Snow Wedding, Foresthill | Shion & Paul
When Shion first contacted me, she wasn't entirely sure what her wedding day would look like. We brainstormed and came up with many, many ideas, but when the idea of a snow wedding came up, we both knew instantly that it was something special. The trouble with weddings in the Sierra Mountains, especially a snow wedding, is that no one can predict the weather.  In f[...]

Los Altos History Museum Wedding Photography | Mei & Andy
Andy loves climbing trees.  I mean loves.  Just look at the photos below.  And guess who loves climbing trees with Andy?  Mei.  So there I was, doing my photojournalistic thing during their wedding day, trying to capture the love when what should happen?  One barefoot lawyer and one biologist scrambled up an apple tree and began making out. I swear, I couldn't make[...]

Ellen and Gadi's wedding plan was both simple and elegant.  They were to get ready at The W Hotel, marry at Temple Emanu-El, and hold their reception at Foreign Cinema.  It was like a best-of-the-best tour of three of San Francisco's most elegant venues. Ellen and Gadi included some unique, stunning, personal touches at their wedding.  I loved the huppah and the ke[...]

Napa Valley Private Vineyard Wedding Photography | Jenn & Jamie
Jenn & Jamie planned this stunning Napa Valley vineyard and barn wedding with the help of Christina of Glow Event Design.  Normally I'd share the name of this beautiful and rustic venue with you, but sadly this was the last time it would be used as an event space.  I'm honored to have documented its final hurrah. I love learning about how couples meet, and Jenn[...]
