Hannah and Michael have been together since high school and they wanted Hannah’s sister to marry them on Tomales Bay in an intimate ceremony. They will do a bigger celebration next year but this was so touching and they had their dog Shorty and even a boat of excited fisherman cheering them on! I am honored to have documented their commitment to each other!

Elam waited patiently during the pandemic to have his Bar Mitzvah party and it was well worth the wait! He had so much fun with his friends and family at the Marin Country Club playing so many rounds of pinball and basketball as there were many arcade games rented for the occasion. There was also a lot of dancing and all the kids were just so happy to be together having a great time celebrating Elam! Congratulations and Mazel Tov!

Ben and Jacob are just the sweetest boys and both did a spectacular job with their B’nai Mitzvah at Rodef Shalom in San Rafael. Their mother, Moji, couldn’t have been more proud of them and it was so apparent by how loved they were by so many people whom showed up for them in person and on zoom. The Kiddish Lunch afterwards was filled with toasts and the Horah and everyone was so happy to be outside with their friends and family. It was a beautiful B’Nai Mitzvah and everyone was so proud of these boys. Look at them beaming in their photographs! Such handsome boys! Mazel Tov!

Caitlin and Nick chose the Montage Healdsburg for their wedding reception as they loved the swimming pool and view–You can’t argue that as it’s pretty stunning! I took their wedding portraits around the pool as the reflection was pretty dramatic! They were surrounded by close family and friends wishing them the best for their life together and after the wedding portraits were finished they all changed into their bathing suits and enjoyed the Sonoma County sunshine and took a dip in this beautiful swimming pool.

Cutest pandemic wedding story here Eydis and Tyler met on a trivia night zoom session. He lived in Miami and Eydis was visiting her mother in Iceland. Huge time difference but they still FaceTimed for almost a year until they met in person. After that, Tyler moved to Northern California where Eydis lives, proposed to her and the rest is for the history books. Love always finds a way. Eydis and Tyler had their wedding at Dillion Beach in Sonoma County and stayed the night at Dillion Beach Resort in a cute tiny home that was very similar to homes in Eydis’ beloved country, Iceland. It’s such a charming resort and their wedding was exactly what they wanted. They were on the beach with close friends and family and views that just don’t quit. Just like them. They never gave up and now they are together for all their days.

There are just NO words how much love Lauren and Marcela had not for just each other but for everyone who came up to the party to congratulate them. The love was so big that I found myself smiling from ear to ear as I photographed all the beautiful happy moments! And there were SO many I couldn’t stop snapping away. These two are absolutely stunning inside and out and they are over the moon excited to have met and start their lives together as are both of their families. I am so honored to have captured this beautiful engagement party complete with a Coachella style tent, incredible desserts, pizza oven and the most delicious paella you can taste. Everyone was so HAPPY to be there to celebrate at Marcela’s property in St. Helena which was nestled on a hilltop between vintage olive and oak trees. It was a magical evening and Arica of Events by Arica Grace turned the hilltop setting into a bohemian wonder of comfort and eye candy! What a night under the stars it turned out to be and I am so happy that this last year which was so hard to connect somehow Lauren and Marcela still found their way to each other. The proof is in the pudding they say and you just don’t get smiles bigger than these two have for each other. Big Congratulations and Love!

I always love being a senior portrait photographer as they are so fun to shoot. Honestly, I have such a blast styling these. Being the best senior portrait photographer in San Francisco makes me so grateful as I always try to infuse each client’s style and get the gorgeous senior portraits. What makes a great senior portrait? I think it’s when your guard is down and your personality is caught by the shutter of my camera. And when I photograph your heart in a location in the Bay Area with the most magical lighting then voila! You have the most gorgeous senior portraits that tell your story and remember this most incredible threshold in your life. Here’s some more senior portraits I shot in Petaluma, Sebastopol, Mill Valley and in the San Francisco Bay Area I shot last season.
I’m Booking now for next school year. 🎓 😍 📸

The Julia Morgan Ballroom is a perfect place for a wedding in San Francisco. It has the most incredible art deco architecture so your wedding photos have the most stellar backgrounds and the lighting is spectacular to capture your wedding reception photos at sunset. The light comes in through the windows just in time to highlight your first dance as husband and wife. It’s an honor to be a wedding photographer and I will always try to do my best as being the best wedding photographer in San Francisco means to keep exploring and being curious. I know these traditions are so important to be captured in an photojournalistic way but to also keep them artistic and beautiful. Krissy and Max did a first look at Omni Hotel where they were staying before they hopped across the street to the Julia Morgan Ballroom for their ceremony in the lobby. The wedding reception was upstairs on the penthouse floor with the glamorous San Francisco City skyline peeking in through the windows. Fabulous wedding and such a great venue for beautiful San Francisco wedding photography with such a fun and sweet couple! Here’s to lots of wonderful times together, Krissy and Max!

Paloma had to walk through a few disappointments as her Bat Mitzvah was rescheduled a few times due to Covid but she finally got to show everyone how hard she worked and all her family and friends came out to support her! It was a beautiful sunny day at Unitarian Universalist Congregation Marin in San Rafael and everyone was very happy as The CDC had just announced that people whom were vaccinated no longer needed to wear masks so everyone was mostly mask free and finally able to hug each other. I couldn’t be prouder of Paloma as she sailed through her Bat Mitzvah with ease and grace and the photographs show just that! Mazel Tov!

It’s Den’s turn to tell her daughter how incredibly proud she is of Paloma and she almost made it without shedding a tear. Almost!
