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!

Just look at the love between these two siblings.  Lily had her Bat Mitzvah rehearsal at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon, CA and her big party is coming up soon!  She’s such a sweet girl and I am so excited to watch her have the time of her life with her family and friends.

Firewood Marketing Holiday Party at The Regency Ballroom – San Francisco Event Photographer

When Lanya and Juan Zambrano of Firewood Marketing have a holiday party they go all out and here are some photos I snapped at everyone having such a fun time.  There was a laser light show that didn’t stop and what I love about Firewood is how much they give back to the community local and globally and their philosophy… Good people make good business.  It’s a beautiful thing.

San Francisco Family Portrait Photographer, San Francisco lifestyle photographer -The Batalia Family

The Batalia Family just got these parakeets 🐦🐦 the day before I photographed them so they were the center of attention. I told Elena she was a brave mom as the bird seed fell all over the place more than once. And, I have been flipping out about cleaning the fish tank. 😬 We photographed most of these at their home in Seacliff as it was raining ☔️ but when we got a break we went into their backyard. Such an awesome family!

Petaluma Fashion Photographer. Sonoma County, Marin, San Francisco Bay Area Fashion photographer

Love shooting these fashion designs by Jae and had so much fun!  These pieces are very stylized and a fashion photographer’s dream to photograph!  We had fun mixing and matching all the pieces in Jae’s line.

San Francisco Fashion and Editorial Photographer. Tallulah.

Loved photographing these editorial fashion photos of the beautiful Tallulah around downtown Petaluma.  She wore a couple of different colored wigs and voila- she looked like a totally different girl and would act totally in character.  I had so much and being a fashion and editorial photographer in San Francisco is just the most incredible honor.

LGBT Wedding Photographer at City Hall in San Francisco. Jack and Ryan. Love wins!

This romantic love story begins with a long distance relationship. Jack and Ryan met while Jack was vacationing in Thailand, and after a couple of years of long distance courtship, Ryan moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where they were finally able to marry under California law. The hosted the LGBT wedding ceremony at San Francisco’s City Hall and their wedding reception was held in the delightful Japanese Tea Garden no less!  Because both Jack and Ryan couldn’t be more whimsical and fun I photographed their wedding photos in a very playful and artistic way.  It was raining when we got to the Golden Gate Bridge for their couple wedding portraits but I got the most awesome and unique wedding photo of them jumping with balloons with the drops of rain on my windshield.  We also took wedding portraits around City Hall and The Japanese Tea Gardens with their bridal party and had the best day ever —Yeah, Love wins!

Wedding Photographer at Hellman Ehrman Mansion, Tahoma, Lake Tahoe, CA. Mary Kate and Jamie.

The Hellman Ehrman Mansion located in Tahoma on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe is one of the most epic venues for your wedding phototograpy.  Look at that sunset!!  The views are unparalleled anywhere on the lake! Felicia Gantar of Felicia Events designed this wedding and it was stunning!  I loved every detail of their day and Mary Kate and Jamie could not be a kinder couple.  They were so attentive to their family and friends needs even thought it was their wedding day.  I LOVE being a wedding photographer and witnessing kindness like this as it’s such a beautiful thing to behold.  Their ceremony was right down on Lake Tahoe and the bridal party cached through the pathway down to the site.  Then Mary Kate descended and it was such a beautiful sight to see.  Beautiful surrounds with beautiful people –what a wonderful wedding. These are some of my favorite Lake Tahoe wedding photos.  I wish these two the absolute best life has to offer!  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 at Argnonaut Hotel in San Francisco. Natalie and Andrew.

Natalie and Andrew had their wedding ceremony and reception at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco. This was a totally flawless day for an adorable couple. They thought of some wonderful special touches like enjoying an Irish coffee at the famous Buena Vista in Fisherman’s Wharf with their entire bridal party before their wedding ceremony. We walked around I did their San Francisco wedding photography portraits on the iconic cable car and around Fisherman’s Wharf.  We even did their wedding couple portraits on a valet dolly with the concierge in the photo.  I love the wedding image of the couple framed by the red doors in Ghiradelli Square and they are sticking out their tongues.  Such a Fun day and beautiful San Francisco Wedding for a fantastic couple!
