Nadine and Karry's love is powerful and palpable. And the venue they selected was no different. Committing to each other standing beneath striking redwoods with the faint trickle of a nearby stream, Nadine and Karry brought so much love and peace to an already beautifully perfect setting. Using simple decorations, a complimentary color scheme, and a small gathering of close friends and family, this naturally set day was naturally brimming with love, joy, pride, and laughter.
Anna and Loren's were amazing to work with. They knew exactly what they wanted for their day and they made it happen. They shared their day with friends and family and after the ceremony we headed out to The Legion of Honor for a few shots before their reception. I loved how these guys just looked so amazing, and can I say wow about Anna's dress? So gorgeous.
I photographed Angel and Brandon's engagement session and just absolutely loved how open and fun these guys were.
Their wedding day started bright and early and it took place at the beautiful Skyline United Church of Christ. Some of my most favorite things about their wedding were how personal all the details were and how much happiness and love they were surrounded by.
The church provided two separate spaces for them to get ready, giving us a chance to move easily from room to room capturing every important moment.
After the ceremony we headed over to Hong Kong East Ocean Seafood Restaurant in Emeryville for the reception. We were blessed with an amazing sunset that evening as their guests ate, laughed, played games and celebrated their union.
Abby & Elliot's day was simply elegant and beautiful. The Sequoia Lodge is perfect for smaller weddings. The building has a skylight over the main floor casting natural light throughout the room. Outside, wrap-around balconies overlooking redwood and eucalyptus trees provide tranquil spaces for reflection and fantastic photographs.
Sari + Jen's City Hall ceremony began at the luxurious Palace Hotel in SF offering some timeless scenes which were truly elegant and romantic. These guys were fantastic to work with as they ventured out to explore the hotel with me finding unique spaces to photograph them in. City Hall served as a fantastic backdrop to their union.
We arrived in Sonoma and spent all day with the couple. We started shooting at the getting ready locations, then off to the gorgeous and romantic Kenwood Inn & Spa which served as a perfect backdrop for the couple's first look. The ceremony took place at Gundlach Bundschu winery with amazing views and stunning courtyards.
