makeup + hair styling for danielle’s city hall wedding

I am so incredibly happy that Danielle chose me to not only photograph her stylish San Francisco City Hall Ceremony, but also to style her makeup + hair for the beautiful day as well.  Here are a few photos to show the makeup + hair I did on Danielle and I will be posting photos I shot that day as well soon.

commercial portraits for shutterfly

I often get hired to do hair + makeup for the lovely folks at Shutterfly, Inc. It’s the best because I get to work with little ones and their families.  I really have a heart to work with kids. For this shoot, I not only got to style the hair + makeup,  but I also got to photograph these little cuties.  I really LOVE how they came out!  Everyone needs Christmas cards that don’t suck, right?

vu + justin engaged

I have known Justin for a long time as he is a fellow Bay Area photographer and friend.  When he announced that he was engaged to Vu, I could not be more happier for him.  Justin is such a kind, sweet man and I know his life with Vu will be filled with excitement, adventure and lots of travel. So excited to see where life takes them and I am looking forward to meeting all their friends and family while photographing their wedding in June.

bridal makeup + hair trial on agnieszka

Agnieszka and I had a small problem on the day of her trial.  We could not stop chatting and enjoying the time, that we ran out of time too soon and ended up doing the hair trial on a separate day.  Here is the before and after photos of the final makeup look and below is the final hair look.

The speeches alone at this wedding were unique and one of a kind- not to mention Julia’s dress….. the “cheese” cake and that RING!!!! Julia and Xander completely outdid themselves and I am so proud and honored that they chose me to photograph their most beautiful day.

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.
