garrett + denisse’s wedding

A beautiful, elegant and totally FUN wedding day with Garrett + Denisse and their families that made me feel like I was a part of the family.  Their Santa Clara Mission ceremony was full of sentimental moments, laughs and beautiful song.  Their reception was filled with some of the best speeches I have ever heard, great food, lots of sweet kisses and dancing, dancing, dancing.  Thank you so much Garrett + Denisse for allowing me to photograph your beautiful day, it was such an honor.

monique + michael’s nestldown wedding

Wow. What a magical day spent at Nestldown photographing the beautiful Monique + the handsome Michael’s rainy wedding celebration.  Nestldown is just pure magic and this day was no exception.  The heavy rain fall and brave, poncho covered guests made this wedding unique and challenging.  I have to admit, I LOVE the way the images came out and even though it poured down rain most of the day, I would say- it was absolutely perfect. Monique + Michael, thank you so much for having such beautiful, warm, willing spirits and allowing me to capture these memories.

sara + will’s Villa Montalvo wedding

I absolutely LOVED working with Sara + Will and their families on their beautiful, Saratoga wedding at Villa Montalvo.  Villa Montalvo is one of my favorite places to photograph and their wedding was no exception. Sara and Will grinned from ear to ear all day long (at least when Sara was not wiping tears from her eyes).  Their closeness to their families and friends was something very apparent and it was really wonderful to witness such a loving group of people come together to celebrate this gorgeous occasion.

“spirit” editorial for Content Magazine

When Content Magazine asked me to shoot an editorial encompassing my interpretation of the sixth sense “spirit”, how could I resist.  Below are some of the photos I created with “spirit” as my theme.
