Wedding photography POint reyes – Hannah + Michael

Hannah and Michael have been together since high school and they wanted Hannah’s sister to marry them on Tomales Bay in an intimate ceremony. They will do a bigger celebration next year but this was so touching and they had their dog Shorty and even a boat of excited fisherman cheering them on! I am honored to have documented their commitment to each other!

WEdding at Montage Healdsburg Caitlin + Nick

Caitlin and Nick chose the Montage Healdsburg for their wedding reception as they loved the swimming pool and view–You can’t argue that as it’s pretty stunning! I took their wedding portraits around the pool as the reflection was pretty dramatic! They were surrounded by close family and friends wishing them the best for their life together and after the wedding portraits were finished they all changed into their bathing suits and enjoyed the Sonoma County sunshine and took a dip in this beautiful swimming pool.

Wedding at Dillion Beach -Eydis + Tyler

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.

Wedding Engagement Party Lauren + Marcela

There are just NO words how much love Lauren and Marcela had not for just each other but for everyone who came up to the party to congratulate them. The love was so big that I found myself smiling from ear to ear as I photographed all the beautiful happy moments! And there were SO many I couldn’t stop snapping away. These two are absolutely stunning inside and out and they are over the moon excited to have met and start their lives together as are both of their families. I am so honored to have captured this beautiful engagement party complete with a Coachella style tent, incredible desserts, pizza oven and the most delicious paella you can taste. Everyone was so HAPPY to be there to celebrate at Marcela’s property in St. Helena which was nestled on a hilltop between vintage olive and oak trees. It was a magical evening and Arica of Events by Arica Grace turned the hilltop setting into a bohemian wonder of comfort and eye candy! What a night under the stars it turned out to be and I am so happy that this last year which was so hard to connect somehow Lauren and Marcela still found their way to each other. The proof is in the pudding they say and you just don’t get smiles bigger than these two have for each other. Big Congratulations and Love!

Wedding Photographer at Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, CA. Castello di Amorosa in Sonoma Napa Wedding Photographer. Jessica and Jake.

Jessica and Jake were too cute.  They had a very intimate ceremony at Calistoga Ranch and then we went on an excursion to Castello di Amorosa in Napa Wine Country and took some more photos.  We had such a fun time sipping champagne and snapping photos.  I mean, come on….it’s wine country so when in Rome….Wish these two a lifetime of more adventures together.

Wedding Photographer at The San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA. Bree and Anthony.

The San Francisco Theological Seminary is the most romantic wedding venue in San Anselmo in Marin County.  The building looks like a castle and they have a the quaintest chapel to say I Do.  Then there is quite a few rooms to hold your reception or you can have it on the outdoor patio with views galore.  Bree and Anthony had a heart felt ceremony and a party where the dancing didn’t stop.  And then….the best part was instead of a wedding cake….they had a Ben and Jerry’s cart!  BAM!  I was one happy wedding photographer on a hot Marin night.

Wedding Photographer at Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael, Marin County. Mariya and Evan.

Mariya and Evan are two of the kindest souls and smart….did I mention smart?  Oh boy they smart and they got the degrees from ivy league schools to prove it.  But they are kind too which makes you just love them anymore.  I loved being the wedding photographer for these two and especially at The Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael in Marin County.  The place screams to me, The Royal Tenenbaums, the movie that starred Gwenyth Paltrow.  So it has all it’s quirky grooves and crannies and the place seems to take on a persona in itself.  I really can get lost taking wedding portraits in the gardens or in the parlor on the french love seat —well basically all over the mansion.  I love these two and hope they continue to have the best times of their lives together.  And being that these two are so smart…I’m sure they’ll do just that.

Wedding Photographer at The Landmarks Art and Garden Center in Belvedere/Tiburon, Marin. Theresa and Marc

Theresa and Marc chose the The Landmarks Art and Garden Center which has the most exquisite views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. And they chose, Meren, from A Savvy Event whom is the most inpeccable wedding planner and she never fails to deliver anything less than perfection on your wedding day.  I love being a wedding photographer when A Savvy Event team member is one board as the design details are amazing.  Marc is the most phenomenal chef and used to own the iconic restaurant AQ in San Francisco where they would change the theme and menu according to the season.  He had his staff make the five course meal that was served to thier wedding guests and the food was out of this world.  Hope their life together will always be a grand epicurean adventure as this wedding was.  xoxo

Wedding photographer at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, Marin County. Stacey and Matt.

The Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA, is a magical place for a wedding. Stacey and Matt made it even more magical with sparklers illuminating the air as they strolled off together into their future…I love wedding photography with sparklers!  And the gardens at MAGC are spectacular.  I particularly love the wedding couple shot of them under the massive live oak tree.  And anytime you can blow out twinkle light in an artistic way with beautiful bokeh you should!  Wedding photographs look so artistic and beautiful that way!  I like to shoot my aperture at 1.8 to make the depth of field very slim to none to give that Monet art feel in the background.  Love being a wedding photographer in Marin and wish Stacey and Matt the best life together.  BTW, Matt is quite the talented photographer himself.  I was impressed!

 

 

 

Wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco Bay Area. Engagement photo session in Monument Valley looks like a movie…Abigail and Ian.

Here’s the formula for an engagement shoot that looks like film stills from a cool western film full of adventure, intrigue, and romance…

We road tripped for a weekend to Monument Valley — once we were there, we explored Native American reservations, the arches, and had a blast!  Abigail and Ian were going to get married at Viansa Winery but wanted a different feeling for their engagement photography.  As a wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco I was more than thrilled to get to road trip and take awesome engagement photos in an artistic and editorial way in the red sand dunes.  Such an incredible engagement session as the photos speak for themselves.  Wait until the wedding in Sonoma Valley at Viansa Winery--the heart of wine country!
