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!

Corporate Lifestyle and Branding Photographer San Francisco Bay Area –Firewood Marketing Lifestyle and Branding Session

These are some of the photos I took at Firewood Marketing in San Francisco.  They are one of the fastest growing advertising agencies in the country.  I love their motto, “Good People Are Good Business” and they really exemplify that in their work and productivity.  They hire humble people who really care about the world and all work as a team in a fun creative environment where everyone can be themselves.  Whenever I do a shoot there I always feel the camaraderie and the gratitude everyone has for the founders Lanya and Juan Zambrano.  They built this company from just them to 300 plus employees in offices in over 3 countries.  These photos show how everyone is bringing their A game in their own way and a lot of these are on their website at:

Wedding Photography at Deer Park Villa, Fairfax in Marin County. Leah and Matthew.

Wow.  What a beautiful day this was.  I mean the love between Leah and Matthew is off the chart and their devotion to their four children is even more mind staggering.  The children were a part of every celebration and they loved it –even with a newborn attached to them most of the evening.  The venue, Deer Park Villa in Fairfax which is in the heart of Marin County near Samuel P. Taylor National Park is awe inspiring.  The redwoods tower above you giving you a peek at the star filled sky.  Such an emotional and authentic ceremony and reception gave me pause and event planner, Chiara DeJoy, made sure everything was just exquisite! I wish these two the absolute best life has to offer.

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!

Yoga Photographer San Francisco, Yoga Photography Session by Dana Hargitay

Nina is an exceptional yoga teacher, I should know as I go to her yoga classes at Foo Dog Yoga in Petaluma,  In addition to teaching in Petaluma, CA, Nina also teaches workshops in Denmark her native country.  She has quite the following on her Instagram and endorses some top Yoga brands so we highlighted these brands in this shoot when we could and highlight some of Nina’s very intuitive and detached meditative flow.  Namaste

 

Senior Portrait Photographer Petaluma, Sonoma County and Marin. Catherine Anne.

Love this gorgeous girl and loved taking her senior portraits in Petaluma even more.  We had so much romping around the town finding great spots for backdrops in her senior photos.  We took the cover photo at the most amazing restaurant, Della Fattoria, as all the lights just make her shine!  Wishing her the best on her next endeavor in life…College at University Nevada Reno.  Big Hugs!

Corporate Headshot photographer in Mill Valley, Sausalito, and Marin. Chiara.

It is so important to have the best corporate headshot you can get that will convey your warmth, professionalism and confidence.  I love being a corporate headshot photographer to get the perfect image for someone to grow their dreams.  I also love this girl as well…..she is the most amazing woman you will ever know.

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. Krissy and Max

The Julia Morgan Ballroom is a perfect place for a wedding in San Francisco. It has the most incredible art deco architecture so your wedding photos have the most stellar backgrounds and the lighting is spectacular to capture your wedding reception photos at sunset. The light comes in through the windows just in time to highlight your first dance as husband and wife. It’s an honor to be a wedding photographer and I know these traditions are so important to be captured in an photojournalistic way but to also keep them artistic and beautiful.  Krissy and Max did a first look at Omni Hotel where they were staying before they hopped across the street to the Julia Morgan Ballroom for their ceremony in the lobby. The wedding reception was upstairs on the penthouse floor with the glamorous San Francisco City skyline peeking in through the windows.  Fabulous wedding and such a fun and sweet couple!  Here’s to lots of wonderful times together, Krissy and Max!

 

Wedding Photographer at Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa Valley, CA. Briana and Matthias

A lovely wine country wedding ceremony and reception at the historic Mont La Salle Chapel in Napa, CA. Briana and Matthias know how to pick a location.  This little chapel in Napa Valley is divine for wedding photography.  It’s nestled into the vineyards on top of a hill and has European architecture to make your wedding images have a vintage antiquity to them.  The gardens are so beautiful as well to take your formal wedding photographs or the couple portraits.  Beautiful magic hour light comes in around sunset highlighting all the traditions so your wedding images reflect the magic of your wedding ceremony and reception.  I love taking artistic photos on these grounds and the twinkle lights add the ambiance.  Such a beautiful day for Brian and Matthias to tie the knot.  Lucky me to get to be their wedding photographer in Napa Valley, no less!
