Wedding photographer Lake at Villa Bella Tahoe. Lake Tahoe wedding. Bethany and Chris.

Villa Bella Tahoe in Lake Tahoe has the most spectacular lake views and perfect for a wedding venue and that is exactly why Bethany and Chris chose it!  They rented a school bus which was so cute to escort the guests to the lodge and we had so much fun shooting their wedding photos with mostly natural light as the skies were gorgeous.  At the time of their wedding Villa Bella Tahoe was called Fitzhaven, however, it is now under new ownership and the name has changed.  It’s still just breathtaking and the you really can’t get better views of Lake Tahoe!

Wedding Photographer at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kelly and Ballan.

Look at the divine art deco detail the Julia Morgan Ballroom has and how perfectly beautiful does it look in Kelly and Ballan’s San Francisco wedding photography.  The two are very classic in their taste and values.  They wanted a venue that would reflect their love of tradition and family and being that The Julia Morgan Ballroom is in the heart of downtown San Francisco and it’s such a stately building they knew they found the perfect venue for their wedding.  Both of these two waited for a long time to get married as they hadn’t met until later in life so this wedding was extra special as everyone was so happy for them.  I love being a wedding photographer at San Francisco venues like this and especially when the couple is so grateful to have found one there “person” to spend the rest of their days with.  Beautiful.

Wedding Photographer at The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena. Napa Valley, CA. Sarah and Nick.

I am in love with being a wedding photographer at The Culinary Institute of America as it is not only an exquisite wedding venue architecturally but the food is divine of course!  The light in these artistic wedding photos I took of Sarah and Nick is gorgeous and I loved capturing their couple wedding portrait photos in the vineyards and at their hotel, The Harvest Inn, in St. Helena beforehand. It was the most gorgeous wedding and Nick is a dress designer and he custom made Sarah’s dress!  At the wedding reception there was a beautiful video montage of him making her dress so it was so touching to see all the details he put into it.  Love this couple and hoping more creative endeavors in their future.

Wedding photographer – Lanai, Hawaii – Four Seasons. Jenny and Sean.

You can’t get more spectacular than the Four Seasons in Lanai, Hawaii. I love being a destination wedding photographer from the San Francisco Bay area….I mean who wouldn’t want to photograph gorgeous couples like this in a paradise such as Lanai, Hawaii.  Look at these stunning skies and views in their wedding photography.  Hawaiian dancers, roasts from friends…it was all just picture perfect!

Love Jenny and Sean and hope their future is as bright as this day was!  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 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 photographer in San Francisco Bay Area. Allison and Gere.

This wedding was so gorgeous! It was held at a private club in San Francisco — a club so private that I am not allowed to disclose its name here! This was the most spectacular wedding to be the photographer on.  Gorgeous details and the venue was amazing.  Loved all the gorgeous wedding photography images of Allison and Gere walking around downtown San Francisco and her veil flew straight up.  Couldn’t have been more perfect if it was staged.  Here’s to much love and happiness for this divine couple!  xoxo

 

Wedding proposal Photographer at Duck Horn Vineyards in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Arlene & Carlos.

Chris proposed to Arlene at Duck Horn Vineyards in St. Helena. This sweet couple is from Miami, and their friends hired me as a surprise wedding proposal photographer. Every moment of this day was full of emotion. I cried! so hard I couldn’t barely see through the lens as I was photographing Arlene say I do!  It was the most gorgeous day and I can’t wait for the awesome couple’s wedding!

 

Wedding photographer at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, Marin County. Anna and Chris.

I love being a wedding photographer at The Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA in Marin County!   The rose gardens were gorgeous and the perfect setting for a wedding portrait of the couple kissing.  For the bride’s portrait Anna wanted to have some gold glitter in her photos so she blew away some gold dust and we got the sparkly wedding photos she wanted.  Such a great couple and I wish them the best!  xoxo

Wedding and Engagement photographer at Point Reyes and Limantour Beach. Stacey and Matt.

This couple is adorable, and there could not be a more idyllic spot for an engagement than the Point Reyes seashore and Limantour beach in Marin County. See for yourself…
