Kings of Love

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. There wasn't a dry eye in the house as the two exchanged their vows and performed a beautiful sand ceremony. The reception that followed was a glorious...

A Coming of Age Debut

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. The prayer was followed by the 18 roses ceremony, which displayed heartfelt support as I spent the day with this lovely family documenting a girl's journey into womanhood....

Much to our excitement the boudoir images we photographed during the styled shoot were printed in their spring issue!...

Sandra & Mathew’s San Francisco City Hall Wedding

Sandra & Mathew’s  San Francisco City Hall Wedding

Sandra and Michael were a match made in heaven. The two were such a pleasure to work with and complimented each other beautifully. They had a quiet ceremony at the San Francisco City Hall's 4th floor North Gallery witnessed by their closest family and friends. Beautiful sounds from a string duo echoing through the hallways while they danced and laughed together during portraits. These two were such a unique pair. Their love felt timeless, like something out of an old novel.   Sandra and Michael were a dream couple and I hope to have many more like them....

Obsessed: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

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.  I’m delighted to say that one of my photos from that shoot was sold to a record label and used as a rendering for the cover of her new Obsessed: Hedwig and the Angry Inch album. ...

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 magestic redwoods and the Bride presented her perfect silhouette in a gorgeous mermaid style gown. The adorable pair exchanged their vows on the outdoor patio in front the Brazilian Room amidst a...

A Romantic Sailboat Elopement

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.  Last March, I was in Thailand honeymooning and I became obsessed with recreating this dream...

Michele & Jeremy City Hall

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. Thankfully they were up for the adventure! The photos came out so beautiful!  The ceremony was held on the 4th floor of the San Francisco City...

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...

Anticipating the arrival!

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.  Its such an incredible change to see a woman go from being single, to being in love, to this miraculous change of embodying and creating an extension of that love. Im so happy for Jamille and her partner and their...
