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!

Love this gorgeous girl and loved taking her senior portraits in Petaluma even more. We had so much romping around the town finding great spots for backdrops in her senior photos. Do I have the best job being a senior portrait photographer in San Francisco with all these awesome backdrops we have. And I have always worked hard to be the best senior portrait photographer in San Francisco. When I get the true you being my camera lens looking as gorgeous as you are then I feel at my best. I always want to make sure your senior portraits represent this time in your life so that’s what keeps my portrait photography fun in Petaluma. Everyone is so different! Each senior portrait we takes tells your story so it’s fun to mis it up. We also took her senior portrait photos at the most amazing restaurant, Della Fattoria, as all the lights just make her shine! Wishing her the best on her next endeavor in life…College at University Nevada Reno. Big Hugs!

There’s nothing more mystical than an engagement photography session out at Dillion Beach when it’s super foggy. We stomped around the water’s edge with the jagged rocky coast, climbed up to the vibrant succulent cliffs and creeped under the Eucalyptus tree Tunnels tucked away on the beach. We had a ball celebrating their wedding engagement and the photos reflect just that!

Lily had the best bat mitzvah party ever at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon, CA. Sheryl Denker of Sheryl Denker Events and Design. I mean look at the smile on her face in the photos as she celebrates with all her friends and family! Honestly, there couldn’t be a sweeter girl in the world than Lily. Even with the pressure of all her friends there, she played with her baby cousin and made sure everyone was attended to. Happy Bat Mitzvah and I wish her the world and everything in it! xoxo

When you get a super crew like this one your bound to have a good time! Everyone brought their A game a few days before Christmas for this shoot and fashion inspires me to be the absolute best fashion photographer in San Francisco. And Why not? I would want the best product photography to promote my dreams in commerce. Great Product photography in San Francisco is everything when you are marketing your products. Whether you are selling online or have a foot traffic store you still have to show what you are selling in an enticing way that’s relevant and provocative. Product photography in a lifestyle atmosphere is what the market is responding to when it comes to the fashion and product photography world. Which is so much more fun than being stuck in a studio. We tromped all over Hayes Valley in San Francisco and the results are in the pudding as they say. Thank you Tomedai for trusting me with your beautiful Orlori handbag line! Here’s a link to her incredible bags you can purchase online.
