Wedding photographer at the Generals Residence in San Francisco. Janie and Jim.

A grilled cheese truck and a donut truck, and a gaggle of glamorous red shoes — this wedding was a blast to photograph. The General’s Residence in San Francisco’s Fort Mason is a magnificent venue for a wedding with incredible views of The San Francisco Bay. If you want your wedding photos to parlay the beauty of San Francisco then look no further as this venue is close enough to the Palace of Fine Arts where you can photograph your wedding party and also have enough time to photograph your wedding couple portraits at Chrissie Fields to get the iconic photos of The Golden Gate Bridge in your wedding attire. So much Fun being the wedding photographer on this awesome wedding and who doesn’t want a donut late into the night.  Nicely done Janie and Jim!

 

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg. The Smith Family

I was so excited to shoot The Smiths’s family portraits and in their grandparents gorgeous gardens.  The photos look so clean and crisp with a touch of Monet.  Perfect for Springtime.  I love the kids portraits here as they are so sweet with their siblings and mothers. And why not throw your family dog into the photo shoot as well?  In this photo shoot, we decided to keep it in Petaluma as that is where all the families are based.  Such a happy and adorable family to photograph for spring portraits

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Glen Ellen. Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg, Sonoma County.

The Zambrano Family Portraits were shot at Jack London State Park in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County with the most vibrant colors in the vineyards. Their boy was having so much running around while I did childrens portraiture.  It was such a beautiful day and I highly recommend booking a family portrait session at Jack London State Park in Sonoma County.

Wedding photographer at Allied Arts in Menlo Park. Hilary and Ryan

This was a small wedding (almost an elopement) at The Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park which is a stunning garden oasis having your wedding photography here is a fantastic idea.  Such beautiful gardens to capture classic wedding photographs and Hilary and Ryan wanted just that.  Classic couple as well!

 

Wedding photographer in Petaluma, Sonoma County. Under the Stars in the Country. Gianna and Blaine.

Now this wedding was so emotionally charged I lost it a couple times myself during the toasts.  As you can see by their wedding photos, there isn’t a dry eye during the speeches.  I loved this couple as they are practically like family to me and the live oak trees make such a gorgeous backdrop in these editorial style wedding photographs. I photographed most of the wedding in true photo journalism style except for the couple portraits where I photographed them in a more fashion forward style.  Fantastic Couple and a huge Congrats to Gianna and Blaine whom had their wedding in my home town of Petaluma, CA!

Wedding photographer at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. Allison & Drew.

I had the honor to photograph such a beautiful wedding at the iconic and posh Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. The wedding photographs are very urban and architecturally artistic as the bride Allison wanted her wedding images to reflect the beauty of downtown San Francisco with all it’s glory.  She even wanted to include the TransAmerica Building and The Bentley staircase in her wedding couple photographs.  Allison and Drew had the most incredible appetizers that I took photographs of.  I love being a photographer at these grand events when they serve food this amazing!  Such a fun couple and lots of dancing went on late through the evening!

Indian Wedding photographer at ICC Milpitas. San Jose, CA. Swathie and Abie

I photographed a magical Indian wedding and reception in Milpitas at the ICC Milpitas near San Jose, CA.Just look at these joyous faces…I love the artistic wedding photos of the henna tattoos on their hands and the photojournalism of them acting out ancient Indian traditions like pointing to the moon.  The colors are so vibrant so as a photographer I look to the color as inspiration in the photographs to bring out the bright and cheerful look in their images.  This Indian child I photographed has the eyes of an Indian angel.  So beautiful!  I love this couple and wish them so much love and happiness!

 

 

 

Wedding photographer at Mayacama Golf Club in Santa Rosa, Sonoma and Napa Valley. Meaghan and Jonathon

A romantic wedding at the Mayacama Golf Club in Santa Rosa, CA. This place is gorgeous! Look at the ivy growing on the walls and as a wedding photographer I love to frame the couples in doors!  The ceremony site with the bulbous grass also is so incredible.  The landscape design here is to die for!  They both love their doggies so they had them in the wedding as well. Such a fun wedding in an exquisite venue! I can’t wait to be the wedding photographer on another wedding at Mayacama!

 

 

 

 

Wedding photographer at The Pelican Inn, Muir Beach, Marin County. Katherine and Jason.

There is no spot more charming and quaint for a wedding than The Pelican Inn at Muir Beach in Marin County! Wedding portraits were taken in front of the most rustic barn and we strolled down a path with the entire bridal party (with their flasks in hand which was a gift from the couple) It was a perfect day for a wedding and Katherine and Jason had the most fun ever! I loved photographing this dynamic couple on their wedding day!  Cheers to many more years of fun to come!
