Georgia and Colin wanted to have a super-relaxed and very natural engagement session. We went to the Botanical Gardens in San Francisco. I have never been there before and was amazed at how huge the place is… and gorgeous! They wanted their engagement photos really natural with very little posing. Just really organic. I’m a lifestyle photographer, so I document what’s happening as well as set up natural looking poses. When it comes to portrait time, I like to step in and create a visually appealing scene. I set something up, let you get comfortable with it and make it your own, then step back snap a few shots. When we got to Baker Beach, Georgia and Colin got into their groove and wanted to just play and have fun. I captured their moment and suggested a few things as they went along to get some good looking photos. Mission accomplished! We got some amazing shots that are truly them!
I met Sara and Patrick at the Harley Farms in Pescadero for their engagement session. The farm was adorable. Animals to pet everywhere! I actually think I can make a blog post of all the animals I have taken pictures of during engagements and weddings this last year alone. Sara and Patrick are a fun loving, outgoing, and cute couple. I had so much fun and got to hang out with an amazing couple in a cute town. I feel so lucky to call this my Job.
Alice and John are such a fun loving couple. Alice’s yellow shoes fit together like peanut butter and jelly with her bubbly personality. The decor was undoubtedly attention grabbing, and their guests were dressed to kill. Absolutely fabulous wedding, hands down.

Lynette and Greg are mega Baseball fans. It’s all about the A’s and the Giants. I myself am an A’s fan. GO A’s =) Yes you will see me cheering in the stadium loud and ruthless and not without a great hot dog and beer. They wanted to incorporate their love for baseball with their love for each other in the engagements and in their wedding. I also got the privilege to document them playing catch for the first time. =)
Emily is so sweet and more then excited to get to see the photos from her wedding! I only met with Emily once before her wedding and that was during our meeting as I like to have with all of my clients. I was shooting another wedding and at the end of the night on my way home she came up to me and said hey! your my photographer! When I’m working I concentrate on paying attention to everything that’s going on during the wedding.Facial expressions, decorations, shadows and hot spots, the settings on my camera, what lens I should be using and anything that I need to be ready for at the spear of the moment. My mind is everywhere. I hadn’t even noticed she was there! Her mother is the owner of Simply Catered and she was helping her mom at one of the weddings I happened to be photographing. Fast forward a few months. Emily is at her own wedding, putting on her gown and marrying the man she loves.
