Ashley + Hunter } Wine Country, Santa Rosa, California

Ashley & Hunter, first, I just want to say you guys are both awesome and really so sweet.
Case in point...I walked into the rehearsal dinner on Friday night and you both (separately) say "Do you want a glass of wine?" Approximately an hour later you both come up to me and say "did you eat some food?" (genuinely concerned) *awesome*. It shows so much character when (on your wedding weekend) you are thinking about the photographer, among all the other hundred things you have to think about.  I can't express how happy that makes me. And on top of it, wow, this was really a spectacular weekend. I really loved Annadele Estate. It was so picturesque I couldn't take a bad picture. Perfect location. Sweetest couple Ever.  I love my clients.

Zoe + Dan } San Francisco, Ca

Zoe, the first few minutes of speaking with you I knew we were a fit. You immediately thumbed through photos on your iPhone trying to find a picture of Dan, then ended up showing me pictures of High-tops instead. Which, by the way, is an awesome distraction (sorry Dan...you may have more hair but damn if High-tops isn't the sweetest face ever). Well, I quickly learned that Dan had some sweetness too (lots of it in fact)! Honestly, I loved working with you both. It was a breeze. The day was stunning. The Bus was magic. Everything about it was magic! Lets please keep in touch.

From New York to San Francisco!

Honestly, this was one of the most awesome 3 hour weddings I've ever shot. You guys come flying in from NY "because you like our City Hall better than yours". You bring a bottle of champagne to the Mayors office and crack it open all before 11am in the morning (wait...in the building, mind you).  After that, you decide you need "mostly bacon" for lunch so we head to Mel's diner for a meal in which we all order...beers, burgers and milkshakes and other foods that (may or may not give you type II diabetes). Seriously, you are people after my own heart and I love you for that. Ha, ha! Please come back. San Francisco needs more bacon eaters and rad peeps like you. xoxo

Dalton + Kelly } Holly Farms, Carmel Valley, Ca

Dalton and Kelly tied the knot at *now* one of my favorite venues in Northern California- Holly Farms. I don’t just absolutely love this place for it’s unique charm but I love it for the darling owner, Doyle, and his amazing family. They are such a joy to work with, they make sure vendors are taken care of as well as the guests, and they somehow handle all sorts of wedding day shake-downs with a smile on their face. The entire grounds make you feel like you're in some kind of Fairytale- Bali- Wonderland and if I had a question about, like, anything ("how come this place exist, it's so awesome") they were so on top of it, ready to explain, ready to answer with a big smile. Dalton and Kelly's wedding was full of laughter and lots and lots of "High-Flyers". It was such a joy to have been a part of their beautiful day. Love you guys! xoxo

Joe + Nina } Sonoma, California

It was so awesome witnessing this wedding! Joe, kind of figured I wasn't making the short list but at least I was able to sneak in with a camera. Ha, ha. You both shine when you're together and I couldn't be happier. I'm posting a ton of photos here (seriously could not narrow them down), more to come soon. xoxo
