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!

Love being their wedding photographer in Palm Springs as this was a weekend wedding affair complete with the rehearsal dinner and brunch.  I had so much photographing the wedding couple portraits with tall the art in the lobby and around the grounds.  Such an incredible day!

Wedding Photographer at Hummingbird Nest Ranch near Ojai, CA. Melissa and Ron

Hummingbird Nest Ranch is nestle between Ojai and Santa Barbara, CA and is one of the most incredible places for a wedding and your wedding photos will literally glow!  This place is utterly magical with all the nooks and crannies to have your wedding photos taken.  From the grove of live oak trees, to the mansion and the swimming pool, this place is so uber glamorous.  Artistic and editorial wedding photography is at it’s finest here with all it’s decadence. Melissa and Ron are from Texas so a big ranch was in order for their wedding ceremony and reception.  They had a opulent grooms cake as well as a wedding cake and Melissa had to take a taste of the white chocolate as soon as possible!  Then this gorgeous couple had a rolls royce show up as their guests all lined up to bid them adieu with a sparkler exit.  What a fabulous wedding!

Wedding photographer in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe. Cathy and Mike

What a wedding at The Hyatt in Lake Tahoe at Incline Beach. The bride and groom wanted their wedding photos to reflect their sporty lifestyle so they arrived at the beach on SUP paddle boards and Cathy was pregnant with their first child!  It was  gorgeous blue sky day for their ceremony and their wedding images look so bright and cheery and reflect the fun love of the outdoors they have.  I used natural light mostly in their wedding photography althought I did fill flash a bit as there a bit of back lighting at times.  Beautiful day at Lake Tahoe for Cathy and Mike to get married.  BRAVO!

Wedding photographer at Andretti Winery. Napa Valley Wedding. Erin and Todd.

The Andretti Winery in Napa, CA is like being transported to Italy! This couple had an incredibly beautiful and romantic wedding day. I mean look at the architecure and details they had in their wedding photography.  Not to mention the sun setting over the vineyards during the ceremony.  Just raw beauty at Andretti that I Love getting to be the wedding photographer at this gorgeous venue.  I loved how Todd caught Erin’s veil as it was whisked off her head by a breeze.  They got this!  Wish this couple so much joy in their lives together.
