Annie and Jeff were yet another almost-married couple who took 2020 in stride. What was supposed to be a big, traditional wedding in Northern California turned into a small ceremony and dinner with immediate family on the central coast. The day was unhurried and relaxed, colorful and vibrant. The ocean was within earshot and all […]

It feels like all of my blog posts start the same way lately, talking about how this particular session was affected by COVID, but that’s the reality of engagements and weddings in 2020, and Selina + Christian’s engagement was no exception. We rescheduled this session so many times between March and July but when it […]

Beth and Justin began planning their wedding almost two years ago, long before COVID turned the world upside down. After all of that planning, just as with so many other couples, they were required to strip their wedding down to the essentials. For them, the essentials were a Catholic ceremony, immediate family and closest friends […]

Long before COVID, they planned to marry each other in a small ceremony in Sacramento surrounded by their siblings. Since their plans were already for an intimate wedding, they were able to continue as […]

I look forward to these motherhood minis every year, but this year felt especially exciting. The sessions were originally scheduled for early April, and then COVID happened and we postponed again (and again and again). By the time mid-May rolled around, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to shoot and work and […]

The UC Davis Arboretum is a popular spot for engagement sessions but it holds a special meaning for Jessica and Linda. This was the spot where Linda planned to propose to Jessica, where Jessica unknowingly stole her idea and proposed first, and where Linda ultimately proposed back to Jessica. A whole bunch of yesses later, […]

I’ve photographed Christina and Anna a millllion times now—first for their engagement, then their wedding, then some just-because times since then. A couple months ago they bought their first home so last week we marked it with yet another photo session, and it was a gooood one. Their home is soaked in sunlight and covered […]

Mia and Kevin’s wedding was overflowing with thoughtfully planned details — a vintage typewriter to leave notes to the couple, individually hand-painted cookies, signature drinks that changed with the night’s timeline, and just as many beautiful, unplanned moments — an incredible duet sung by Mia’s sisters, a processional song that unintentionally matched the processional song […]

There are few places I love shooting more than the Marin side of San Francisco, so when I received the inquiry from Laura and Skyler asking about an engagement session up and down Highway 1, I couldn’t reply quick enough. Laura and Skyler live in Illinois, but as avid West Coast travelers, they consider California […]

Karen and Michael’s wedding felt like the perfect transition from summer to fall. The saturated yellows and magentas mixed with deep oranges and reds gave the day a feel of summer warmth and autumn coziness all at once. Karen and Michael went out of their way to make everyone — guests and vendors alike — feel […]
