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[...]

Carmel Wedding Photography at Church of the Wayfarer | Francie & Neal
When Francie sent me her initial email, she jumped in with both feet.  "Will you please be our wedding photographer?" was the subject line.  Good thing we hit it off immediately! I love receiving such warm, personal messages from brides! After regaling me with tales from Neal's and her time in Ecuador spent saving the rainforest (yes even now!) she ended the email wi[...]

Meeting Julie and Ryan, I could instantly see why there are so right for each other.  The way Julie suddenly lights up when Ryan walks into the room is plain for everyone to see, and it is so endearing.

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[...]

Terry and Peter are a lively and vibrant couple, full of life, laughter, and love.  Most of all though, they're kind. Have you ever met someone who was so open, so approachable, and so ready with a smile, that you're actually inspired to be a better person?  Terry and Peter are two such individuals, and Grace and I are privileged to know them.  Thank you both from the[...]

Looking at Kate and AJ, you'd never guess the catalog of pranks and practical jokes this camera-shy couple has in their history.  That's why I really enjoyed their wedding toast - you can learn so much about someone!

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[...]
