Molly + Sai } Napa, California

I loved this wedding so much that I'm considering asking to have my wedding at the family home. Well, I guess first I should probably get engaged. But seriously, I'm not kidding - I'm thinking ahead on this one. Sai and Molly are both creative and sweet and good people all around. It was an easy wedding to shoot. I hope we stay in touch and we definitely need to grab a drink in the city soon! All the best.

Gina and Peter } Tara Firma Farms, Ca

What a fantastic experience this day was with Gina and Peter. The theme was mostly Hawaiian but the wedding took place on a beautiful organic farm in Petaluma. The ceremony was held under an old oak tree, and for the reception, they constructed a tent to hold all the fun activities which included; a pig roast, a homemade vintage inspired photo-booth and hula dancing -I mean...c'mon! Although Gina and Peter followed some typical wedding traditions, it was mostly a super unique celebration that was sincere, handcrafted, unexpected and oh, so sweet! You guys are the best. Thanks for being so patient and I hope we can all grab a drink in the city soon!

Caitlin + Sasha } Hidden Villa, Ca

I knew after meeting Cate and Sasha, I really wanted to work with them. It seemed liked a really good fit. I was right. Hidden Villa was the venue and without even trying, it was such a beautiful ceremony and reception. Everything just seemed to flow naturally all day and the sunset over the Santa Cruz mountains ....pffft...magic.

In all honestly, I felt that this day was not about the details, the food and the place (although all of these things were absolutely amazing) but i think the best part of this wedding, and most memorable for me, was that your family and friends wanted nothing more than to celebrate the two of you. That's it. It was real, honest and lovely to witness. You guys are great. I'm honored to have been there and I hope you keep in touch.

Katie + Jeff } Barndiva, Healdsburg, Ca

Oh so many great images from one wedding it was hard to choose just a few. It was a great day for a wedding celebration in Healdsburg, Ca. The ceremony and reception took place at the artsy Barndiva. Truly one of my favorite venues located right downtown in the city's center. After dinner the party really picked up as folks seriously cut up a rug (or two). Thanks to the very energetic band, Tainted Love. We ♥ Katie and Jeff. Congratulations!!!

Aaron + Jane } Laurel Mill Lodge, Los Gatos, Ca

Oh, where to begin... I really enjoyed this wedding. Quite the perfect setting for a weekend away from the city. A simple combination of great food, music, rustic cabins, camping, bad mitten, fires, redwoods, tether ball, sangria and one hell of an awesome dance party. I loved how intimate and comfortable it all felt and it truly made for a stress-less weekend. Thanks for being so awesome guys! Maybe I'll run into you at the Argus or Phone Booth one of these days. I hope so!

Gamin + Calvary } San Francisco, CA

Loved this wedding! The couple, the details, family and friends, the fact that Gamin whipped up homemade scones from scratch on the morning of her wedding. But this didn't surprise me because when I met Gamin she was in the process of hand sewing her own dress. I immediately knew it was an event I wanted to be a part of. I was right! Thanks again guys and hope to catch up soon.

The Red Heron } Bolinas, CA

Molly Watson and I photographed this beautiful house tucked away in the hills of Bolinas, ca. "The community is perhaps best known for its reclusive residents. Historically, it is only accessible via unmarked roads; any road sign along nearby Hwy 1 that points the way into town has been torn down by residents". I can understand why the locals would want to keep this place secret. You can find the listing to this amazing vacation rental here.

Tracy and Jacob } San Francisco

My work with Tracy and Jacob was short and sweet. We met up at City Hall for a few photos and then meandered a way towards the party at Axis Cafe. It was an intimate dinner in a beautiful setting, good family and friends - what more do you need, really? Heather Williams did an amazing job with the flowers and table settings. All in all, a fabulous celebration.

Who doesn't like a holiday themed winter wedding? I mean...c'mon! Although Joe and Taura followed some typical wedding traditions it was mostly a super unique celebration that was sincere, homemade, unexpected and oh, so sweet! There was even a talent show. You guys are the best. Now I'm just sad that you live so far away. Have fun with the photos!

Abby and Tai } Washington DC

This year was filled with great clients and Abby and Tai were absolutely among them. It was a beautiful weekend in DC. Not only was it Halloween weekend but also the weekend of a big democratic rally, so needless to say, lots of energy in the city. The Tabard Inn in Dupont Circle was perfect for their smaller wedding and very reminiscent of an old English manor with a bit of quirkiness. Loved, loved this wedding and I wish you both the best!
