• I am a fine art wedding and portrait photographer based in San Francisco and Boston. I work with a mix of film and digital photography at weddings in order to achieve a beautifully crafted collection of final images, that truly documents the beauty and energy of your wedding day. Thanks for stopping by and have a peek at some recent weddings and photo shoots below!

A Black and Blush Wedding at Cornerstone Gardens

Heather and Greg were married on a beautiful summer day at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma. A couple of favorites from one of my favorite couples this summer. Possibly my favorite part from this wedding was during Greg’s vows and he stated “You can have ONE cat”…they recently adopted two ;) Love and congratulations again to you Heather and Greg!

Zoe’s First Birthday

I enjoyed a fun little departure from photographing weddings when I had the pleasure of photographing Zoe’s first birthday party! My super talented office-mate Amanda of Amanda O’Shannessy Creative designed all the details for this garden inspired party, including my favorite feature…a pick your own flowers favor table! Seriously, how sweet are all these little details? The cake was so tasty and such a rare treat, because believe it or not I rarely get to eat cake at the weddings I photograph. I know I know, you would think that would be one of the perks of my job, but sadly it is not. I’ll just have to balance it out with photographing cute babies and eating birthday cake ;)

Check out the feature for this sweet little party on 100 Layer Cakelet as well!

Bodega Bay

As some of you already know, 2013 was a busy year for me professionally and personally! In September, I moved into an actual office space with my friends from One True Love Vintage Rentals and Especially Yours Chair Covers. We’ve been busy laying floors, painting, and decorating! Then, a couple months later, my husband and I closed on our house and moved up to the North Bay. Even though we spend most of our free time now working on the house, we try to take a break every so often to go out and enjoy Sonoma county. A couple weekends ago we hopped in the car for a quick ride out to Bodega Bay for an afternoon of walking and eating chowder. It’s easy to get used to our surroundings here, and forget how beautiful the landscape…not to mention that the weather is so fabulous you can enjoy it year round. But to go out in February and walk in the sun along the ocean, well, that’s why we live here. In a previous life I think I must have been an old English rambler. When I have free time all I want to do is find somewhere vast and peaceful to walk. If it were up to me, I would walk until my feet hurt so much that I couldn’t walk anymore. Thank goodness I can handle that, because I find myself on my feet for usually 10+ hours at weddings! Below are just a couple shots from our walk along the Bodega Bay coast…no photos of the chowder and crab rolls though, we devoured them!
