I am always amazed at how gorgeous Indian wedding traditions are.  Karun and Pallavi came face to face in a traditional reenactment of their engagement betrothed to each other by their friends and families. The engagement ceremony was beautifully performed...

Kings of Love

Corey and Haley were clearly meant to be in each others lives'. They were such a joy to photograph on such a heartfelt occasion witnessed by family and friends. As a hybrid film and digital shooter, I was over the moon with how my film scans turned out and paired so nicely with the digital images. The two joined in marriage at the Lake Merritt Untied Methodist Church in Oakland, CA, where guests filled almost every seat in the church.

A Coming of Age Debut

To celebrate Marielle's 18th birthday, her family and friends gathered to celebrate the debutante at the exquisite Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. There is no better place to celebrate an event with such class and style than at the Ritz.  Perched on jutting cliffs that overlook the water, it was such a gorgeous day and we had so much fun being carted around the property taking photos in almost perfect conditions.

Obsessed: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Last year, I created a styled boudoir shoot for my friend Lena Hall. I styled Lena's hair and makeup then photographed some in studio portraits of her using both 35mm film and Digital.  My intention with the over all styling as well as with the photography, was to showcase her sensual femininity whilst complimenting a quiet strength that she demonstrates both in her body as well as in her stare.

Brian and Virginia’s Muir Woods Wedding

Brian and Virginia's intimate wedding took place in the magical forest of Muir Woods.  We were delighted by the enchanted energy of the redwoods and incredible light that surrounded them throughout the day.  The couple exchanged their vows under the infamous Pinchot tree, a special place for the two reminding them of their first date.

Tim & Michelle | Brazilian Room | Tilden Park Wedding

Tim and Michelle were a darling couple that pulled all our heart strings during their beautiful ceremony. The two were so comfortable in front of the camera and were lost in each other and in the moment of the day. The groomsmen wore Navy blue suits with very sophisticated accents of blush and magenta tones amidst a neutral palette.  The two had their first look in Tilden Park surrounded by majestic redwoods and the Bride presented her perfect silhouette in a gorgeous mermaid style gown.

A Romantic Sailboat Elopement

A few years back, before I was married, I had a dream that I was on a boat sipping a glass of champagne, looking into this man's eyes, and feeling so swept away. The summer breeze blew through my hair, the warm light reflected in his eyes, the sounds of the waves, and just us, on this amazing boat.  I remember in my dream I felt like I was so in love and so in trust with this man...it was one of those dreams that you wake up from feeling like you so desperately want to go back to sleep.

Michele & Jeremy City Hall

Michele and Jeremy's City Hall Elopement was such a sweet union of two families coming together to celebrate union.  I was so excited that Michele wanted to do getting ready photos followed by a first look in Burlingame on the waterfront walkway just outside of their hotel.  I wanted the portraits following the first look to be memorable, so I asked the couple if they would want to pose over the wall on some big rocks on the water.

Brian and Virginia’s Engagement

I feel like I won the lottery with these two. As playful and excited as Brian and Virginia are to get married we slowed things down with a beautiful walk through Lovers Lane in San Francisco's Presidio. Later we drove down to the Sutro Baths by Ocean Beach for some amazing sunset photos on the ruins! I can't wait to photograph these two for their special day!

Anticipating the arrival!

I had the pleasure and honor to photograph a beautiful friend of mine that is expecting a baby soon! What an incredible woman Jamille is. She truly embodies a nurturing and warm spirit, a beautiful smile and a baby inside of her that has her absolutely glowing! We hung out, drank coffee and casually took pictures of all the cuteness that surrounded her in the house.

Radonich Ranch Country Wedding

I had the pleasure of second shooting for long time friend and business associate Sonya Yruel.  We had such a lovely time capturing Marci and Kyle out on Radonich Ranch in Los Gatos. The country style wedding was surrounded by rolling hills, amazing sculptural tree, and a calming river that ran beside the property.

Eve & Corey

The story of Eve and Corey is an amazing tale that started as a young love in high school. I had the pleasure of knowing these two lovebirds at San Francisco School of the Arts High School at the age of 14. I remember the progression of what started out as an innocent love, and, unbeknownst to us all, would turn into an everlasting joining of two souls, Eve and Corey.
