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!

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.

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Emily and Steve.

Emily and Steve loved The Julia Morgan Ballroom with it’s grand lobby and architectural details.  We even got to steal to the roof for a gorgeous sunset portrait.  The ceremony was very elegant at St. Peter and Pauls Church in North Beach and then Emily and Steve along with their bridal party hopped on a trolly car to take them to The Julia Morgan Ballroom for such a fun and fantastic evening of incredible food and dancing. I hope these two have the most wonderful time for the rest of their lives.

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!

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!

San Francisco Wedding Photographer. Petaluma Photographer. Chrissy Fields, San Francisco. Murali and Prista.

So sometimes the internet can work in mysterious ways and Murali and Prista found my work online from Singapore and wanted to do an engagement session while they were in San Francisco.  We had a blast together and I hope they are snuggled as two bugs in a rug back in Singapore.  xoxo

Destination Wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico at Shangri-La. Lisa and Joe.

To say I love Lisa and Joe would be an understatement.  I had so much FUN photographing them at their wedding at The Shangri-La in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  The weather was perfect, the cocktails kept coming and everyone of her friends and family that came were the most amazing people.  So much love and support around Lisa and Joe and she had the best playlist ever so everyone danced until their feet hurt…..including me!  Wishing Lisa and Joe many more trips back to Puerta Vallarta in their future which I’m pretty sure they will considering the penthouse they stay at when they go.  It’s amazing and has it’s own rooftop pool with views that make your eyes fall in love!  Love you Lisa and Joe.  xoxo

Wedding photographer at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. Santa Barbara wedding photographer. Mandy and Curt.

Mandy & Curt were married at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. The incredible natural beauty of this place is incomparable and taking wedding photographs is a wedding photographer’s dream come true! This is where The Kennedy’s used to stay on vacation and many other celebrities have gotten married at this beautiful hotel.  The wedding images were very edgy and fashion forward for wedding imagery as Mandy works in the fashion industry and had a lot of input into how she wanted her wedding photos to look.  I also love love love fashion photography so it was so fun to shoot her photos and have her pose in an editorial way.  We used mostly natural light during the pre ceremony for their couple shots but did a lot off camera flash for the reception wedding photos.  Such a fun to shoot this couple at this iconic hotel!
