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!

Wedding Photographer at The Generals Residence in San Francisco.

Another perfect wedding at The General’s Residence in sweepingly beautiful Fort Mason, San Francisco.

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!

Wedding photographer at Miramonte Resort in Palm Springs, CA. New Years Eve Wedding. Jennifer and Michael.

A New Years Eve wedding is what Jennifer and Michael wanted and they were married at the Miramonte Resort in Palm Springs, CA with the most decadent blue skies you can imagine.  The wedding photographs were fabulous with all the confetti.  I love being a wedding photographer on New Years Eve with so much grand fun happening!  They really went all out with ravishing details and top hats and tiaras for all the guests.  I loved their artistic wedding couple photographs with all the grand arches and twinkly lights.  Even the faintest twinkle lights can make photo journalisitic wedding photos look magical when you shoot them with an 1.4 aperture allowing all the beautiful bokeh you can imagine.  Wish the couple a smashing fun life together forever and always!

Gay Wedding photographer at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Bay Area. Peter and Jared

I can’t say enough about how fantastic this wedding was! I loved everything about documenting Peter and Jared’s amazing day.  We did couple wedding photographs at their hotel and at the Grace Cathedral.  I love photographing same sex weddings as I am honored to be a part of progressive civil right change.  Being a LBGT wedding photographer is one of my favorite things and I am most proud of being to work with these exceptional couples.  They are so positive and have the deepest level of compassion and emapthy.  In perfect SF style, they had a cable car deliver them to their ceremony at the magnificent Grace Cathedral. They prepped for the wedding at the luxurious Scarlet Huntington Hotel, and their reception was at a club so swanky I’m not allowed to mention its name online! Peter’s children were in attendance with their partners, all beaming with happiness for their father. We had so much fun taking photo journalistic style wedding photos of them all at the wedding reception and took some more artistic and stylized wedding photos of the couple around the venue. Food stations were everywhere with every kind of food imaginable. Such a beautiful day full of so much love…Congrats!

 

Wedding photographer at Calistoga Ranch, Napa and Sonoma. Leslie and Jake

Calistoga is one of the most beautiful places in the wine country to be married, and Calistoga Ranch takes the cake. If you want rustic wedding images than this is the place for your artistic wedding imagery to take place.  Your wedding photos will have an Ansel Adams look to them or your wedding photos will have the background of a fall Monet painting.  Love the editorial look of this couple in their wedding photos!  So magnificent!

Wedding photographer at Villagio and Vintage Estates in Yountville, Napa Valley wedding. Denise and Will.

Denise & Will were married at the Villagio and Vintage Estates in Yountville, CA. Such a fun artistic wedding images with a mariachi band wedding photos of the couple through the vineyards.  This Napa wedding is exquisite allowing me to photograph this couple in a photo journalistic way!  I love the wedding photo of Will with his mother dancing at the reception as she has so much emotion and I think I will be like that at my son’s wedding.  It makes me weep just thinking about it! Wedding photos at The Villagio and Vintage Estates are always exceptional as the architecture and brick facades and the proximity of the vineyards are divine!
