Wedding Photographer at St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. Megan and Russell.

Such a classic San Francisco wedding! The couple got ready at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental, with formal wedding  photos taken at the Palace of Fine Arts. They were married at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, and the wedding reception was at the St. Francis Yacht Club in the Marina where this awesome couple partied hard with a corn hole toss, photo booth and tons and tons of over the top fun dancing. The wedding photography was artistic and photojournalistic in style.  They also wanted to incorporate classic wedding photography into their images so we took formal wedding photography images at The Palace of Fine Arts.  I love using light and color to highlight my subjects as a wedding photographer and each wedding venue location had it’s incredible light source so I had a magical day photographing Megan and Russell.  Here’s to magic all their years ahead of them!

 

 

Bar and Bat Mitzvah photographer at Rodef Sholom in Marin and JCC in San Rafael, San Francisco Bay Area

Love getting the honor to be a Bar and Bat or in this case a B’nai Mitzvah photographer as these girls are twins! I love the Mitzvah Services at Rodef Sholom in San Rafael, Marin County as there’s always beautiful natural light to take the mitzvah photos. These girls love the beach so they were introduced on surf boards before the Torah dance.  It was such a fun evening with so much dancing and love!

Corporate Lifestyle and Branding Photographer San Francisco Bay Area –Firewood Marketing Lifestyle and Branding Session

These are some of the photos I took at Firewood Marketing in San Francisco.  They are one of the fastest growing advertising agencies in the country.  I love their motto, “Good People Are Good Business” and they really exemplify that in their work and productivity.  They hire humble people who really care about the world and all work as a team in a fun creative environment where everyone can be themselves.  Whenever I do a shoot there I always feel the camaraderie and the gratitude everyone has for the founders Lanya and Juan Zambrano.  They built this company from just them to 300 plus employees in offices in over 3 countries.  These photos show how everyone is bringing their A game in their own way and a lot of these are on their website at:

Wedding Photography at Deer Park Villa, Fairfax in Marin County. Leah and Matthew.

Wow.  What a beautiful day this was.  I mean the love between Leah and Matthew is off the chart and their devotion to their four children is even more mind staggering.  The children were a part of every celebration and they loved it –even with a newborn attached to them most of the evening.  The venue, Deer Park Villa in Fairfax which is in the heart of Marin County near Samuel P. Taylor National Park is awe inspiring.  The redwoods tower above you giving you a peek at the star filled sky.  Such an emotional and authentic ceremony and reception gave me pause and event planner, Chiara DeJoy, made sure everything was just exquisite! I wish these two the absolute best life has to offer.

Wedding Photographer at Villagio and Vintage Estates in Napa Valley. Liz and Aaron.

Liz and Aaron live in Louisiana but love the wine country so they decided to have their wedding at The Villagio in Yountville which is in the heart of Napa Valley. I love the wedding photo of them in front of the fountain with the magic hour  back lighting them.  Gorgeous!  And her wedding dress! We had so much taking their wedding couple portraits around the Villagio and Vintage Estates as they were game for anything.  Her best friend and maid of honor came with and snuck in some of the wedding photos.  It was a decadent wedding styled by A Saavy Event and we got some beautiful artistic wedding photos using mostly natural light and shot in true photojournalistic style.  Love being the wedding photographer at this amazing venue.  Wish Liz and Aaron the absolute best!  xoxo

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Emily and Steve.

Emily and Steve loved The Julia Morgan Ballroom with it’s grand lobby and architectural details.  We even got to steal to the roof for a gorgeous sunset portrait.  The ceremony was very elegant at St. Peter and Pauls Church in North Beach and then Emily and Steve along with their bridal party hopped on a trolly car to take them to The Julia Morgan Ballroom for such a fun and fantastic evening of incredible food and dancing. I hope these two have the most wonderful time for the rest of their lives.

Corporate Headshot Photographer San Francisco Bay Area

It is so important to have the best corporate headshot you can get that will convey your warmth, professionalism and confidence. I love being a corporate headshot photographer to get the most authentic image for someone to grow their dreams. Here are some corporate snaps I’ve taken.

Flying Cloud Wedding Photographer in Petaluma, Ca. Christina and Dan.

I just loved Christina and Dan the moment I met them.  They told me how they met and they were once roommates in San Francisco in the most sought after real estate in the country.  They ultimately chose love over security and it’s history ever since.  They are so fun and playful with each other and I know these two will be together for the long haul.  Their wedding took place at The Flying Cloud in Petaluma, CA and it was such a fantastic Indian summer evening. Love being a wedding photographer in my hometown of Petaluma!  Wish you both the best in life!

Bar Mitzvah Photographer at Congregation Emanu-el and The Terra Gallery in San Francisco, CA. Eli.

Eli had such a fantastic Bar Mitzvah at Congregation Emanu-el and the party at The Terra Gallery in San Francisco.  The design concept by Jayne Greenberg at Just Jayne Events was brilliant as always.  The Terra Gallery is such an incredible space for parties as there are two distinct rooms that are very large open floor plans.  The video montage for this Bar Mitzvah was so emotionally charged there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  I wish this sweet boy, Eli, the best life has to offer him!
