My first time taking pictures at Skyline Church in Oakland, I got admit it was breathtaking. I'm noticing a theme with the winter weddings and thats to do all that you can to make it feel like your outside, this is the second venue we've been at within a month of each other where there is floor to ceiling windows. AND we are OK with that!! The more light the better! It overlooked a beautiful mountain side.Read More
We had so much fun taking photos at this Christmas Wedding! When we walked into the venue and saw an entire wall of windows that looked out into the most gorgeous greenery, we knew this was going to be perfect. The bride, Mariah was gorgeous in her dressed with a custom veil that her grandmother had sewn, definitely couldn't stop taking pictures of it hanging in the hotel window.Read More
When I first talked with Megan on the phone, we instantly clicked and I knew we were the perfect match for her wedding. The drive to South Lake Tahoe was amazing with the mountains, lakes and tall, green trees. We were excited to get there and see where we get to take photos.
The hotel that the bridal party got ready in, was about 10 minutes away from the ceremony location and it was so nice the way they had a private bridal suite for the girls. This is usually when the most chaos happens on a wedding day and its a race for time but from the second I walked in it felt calm and everyone was on time so it made my job easier!Read More
What a beautiful day for a wedding! Sunday, September 10th in Roseville, California turned out to be quite the day. We showed up expecting the pre-wedding chaos and to our surprise the bride was the most put together I've ever seen. The bridesmaids were asking her where things were and without hesitation she would, it's over there in the pre-wedding bags I made each of you. We all know I can appreciate a very organized bride! Just makes my job easier and things flow so smoothly.Read More
Saturday, September 9th was a perfect day for a wedding. The weather was amazing in Grass Valley, California. It was our first time walking into Empire Mine State Park and there was so much greenery!

I was able to meet Halie earlier this year when I got to take pictures for her son's first birthday! We did a cake smash and he was so cute in his little monster's inc. outfit! I was so happy when she got back to me later in the year to do pictures for her wedding in September 2018.
It was a hot day but you wouldn't have even guessed that from the pictures. Halie and Ryan were so cute together. They naturally had great chemistry and you can see that in their photos. At one point I even turned around and saw them standing so cute together, I'm like WAIT! Hold that pose! haha.Read More

I had my wedding 12 years ago and their was no pinterest around back then to help with wedding decorations so we winged it big time. If I could go back in time the decorations is probably one of the things I'd change. So when I had the opportunity to do a styled bridal shoot where I could pick the dress and table settings, I was all over that! I had so much fun setting this shoot up like a real wedding. We made the bouquets and thrifted the gold bordered plates. It was so beautiful.Read More
Ok, first of all when I drove up to the ceremony location, my jaw dropped. This little white church in the middle of the country was all sorts of perfect! This little town called Nicassio was up by Point Reyes. When I say little, I mean you can see everything it has in one spot, a church, restaurant, post office & baseball field. It was straight out of a movie, in fact someone even said Tom hanks walked across the baseball field in one of his movies and you can see the church in the background.Read More
