Laura and Zachary met in Texas while she was working an an au pair as she comes from the French island of Guadeloupe. Zachary is from Petaluma, California so they hosted their wedding at his parents beautiful estate in the hills here in town. The uber fabulous, Peter Ruiz, of Leave it to Peter made sure everything ran perfectly and the decor and flowers by Jackie Dumouchel of Lotus and Lily Design were very french in honor of Laura and her heritage. They had so much fun with friends and family from France along with locals from Petaluma and beyond and danced the night away. Such a gorgeous sunset and evening and it was complete with a confetti exit and a cool vintage car to drive away in. Laura and Zachary couldn’t have been more in love and it was an honor to be their wedding photographer. I wish them both the best life has to offer as they go back to Texas to start their lives together.

Jack was so excited to have his friend and family to help celebrate his Bar Mitzvah at the Meadowclub in Fairfax, CA!
Jack was so sweet at his Bar Mitzvah and Sheryl Denker Events + Design did a spectacular job at creating a baseball themed party at The Meadow Club in Fairfax, CA. Jack was very attentive to his sister, Lilly, whose Bat Mitzvah, I photographed a few years prior to Jack’s Bar Mitzvah.
The balloons, confetti and graffiti table were off the hook and these kids had an amazing time running around and dancing with the incredible Denon and Doyle DJ crew.
Congratulations Jack you are amazing !

They met in training camp for the Army and are excited for their next assignment which fingers crossed will be Hawaii. Sending good juju their way.

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.

A stellar Bat Mitzvah at Rodef Sholom for Lauren! I love that one of the kids had a tattoo that said vote! As a Bar and Bat Mitzvah photographer I get to capture so many fun images of their day and there is always so much emotion. It’s such an honor to shoot these images and turn them into family heirlooms. I try to capture all the details and going ons in an artistic way but being a photojournalist type of photographer I prefer to shoot with a long lens not to disturb the conversation. These Bat Mitzvah images are memories to last many life times! Mazel Tov!

There’s something in the air in Petaluma to have so many beautiful girls that somehow I’m lucky enough to get to photograph. Audrey is so lovely and we loved scouting out locations as we were shooting to capture Petaluma, CA which is where Audrey has lived her most of her life. She says it’s the best place to grow up although she is excited to go to college somewhere different. She might come back to Petaluma but she doesn’t know the future. Here’s to an incredible and exciting future for you and many returns to Sonoma County if we’re lucky!
