san francisco bay area wedding photographer. Napa and Sonoma Wedding photographer – Wedding photography portfolio

Reflecting being a wedding photographer over the years and here’s a small portfolio that stood out to me today as I’m updating my website.  Been an honor to be a part of all these couple’s worlds on such a beautiful occasion of starting their lives together.  Here’s to more beginnings in 2020!

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!

Petaluma Family Portrait Photographer -The Bordessa Family

Everyone who ever meets Jacquelyn Davis Bordessa can’t believe how kind and present she is. She sees the positive in everything and it’s so infectious. She grew up with parents who love Christmas🎅 and blow it out every year so we took photos at Hotel Petaluma so we could capture the Xmas Vibe as she loves it too. Jarrod was game and we goofed and took off to the streets as Hotel Petaluma was bustling with people. We had fun with their kids chasing each other around the fountain ☔️ at Helen Putnam Square and then ended it on Water Street. Love this family to utter pieces and wish them the best holiday season ever. 🌲 

Puerto Vallarta Wedding Photographer. Destination Wedding Photographer. Oren and Co. Event. Tomiko and Chris.

This gorgeous wedding  was so spectacular the entire time I was literally crying or laughing for 8 hours straight.  Because Tomiko and Chris Love hard.  Everything was flawless including the event planning and design by Yifat Oren of Oren and Co.

Loved every second of this fantastic event!

Bacara Wedding Photographer in Santa Barbara. Fielding and Larry.

Noone and I mean noone can make you laugh like Fielding and Larry!  They had the most incredibly FUN wedding at Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara complete with limbo dancing.  Their choreographed first dance was enough to give you cramps in your stomach from laughing.  They are simply made for one another and I cannot wait to see their journey as it unfolds. Mazel Tov to the most animated and cool couples out there!

Wedding photographer at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito and Santa Barbara area. Mandy and Curt.

A California coastal wedding for these beautiful beachy surfers at the mindbogglingly gorgeous San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA.

 

Wedding photographer – Lanai, Hawaii – Four Seasons. Jenny and Sean.

You can’t get more spectacular than the Four Seasons in Lanai, Hawaii. I love being a destination wedding photographer from the San Francisco Bay area….I mean who wouldn’t want to photograph gorgeous couples like this in a paradise such as Lanai, Hawaii.  Look at these stunning skies and views in their wedding photography.  Hawaiian dancers, roasts from friends…it was all just picture perfect!

Love Jenny and Sean and hope their future is as bright as this day was!  xoxo

 

 

 

Wedding photographer at City Hall in San Francisco in Bay Area. Veronika and Oleg.

This creative couple had a City Hall Wedding in San Francisco.  The bride contacted me from Moscow, Russia with some very editorial ideas for her wedding — she even brought rabbit masks! The dinner reception took place on the elegant Napa Valley Wine Train. Talk about an incredible backdrop for your wedding photography photos!  It looked like it was right out of a movie!

Wedding photographer Cancun, Mexico…Merrin and Matt.

This beautiful event was a destination wedding conceived by the creative minds of Merrin and Matt (an actress and a cinematographer) — their ceremony took place at the stunning AZUL Beach Resort in Cancun, Mexico.

I actually went to UCLA with Merrin and couldn’t have been more honored to be her wedding photographer and in Cancun…no less!  We had the best week ever!

Merrin Dungey  is an actress known for her roles on the television series The King of Queens, Alias, and Summerland. She also appeared as Ursula on the ABC series Once Upon a Time. Most recently, Dungey starred on the ABC legal drama Conviction.  She was also on Pretty Little Lies  which is my personal favorite and I CAN NOT WAIT for the second season.

Love these two to pieces and they really did find heaven when they met one another!

 

Wedding photographer in Napa Valley, Wine Country. Tiffany and Mark.

A beautiful Napa wine country destination wedding at a private winery estate. (Check out the bride’s purple kicks!) Gorgeous sweeping views of Napa valley is a wedding photographer’s dream.  I loved the details of this couples wedding and I incorporated it in an artistic way into their wedding photography.  Wish Tiffany and Mark so much happiness!
