I’m always looking for the light. The directional light at dawn and dusk. Reflected light when it hits a corner of a home. Soft window light. The implications this has on my everyday life are marvelous. Photo from the quiet morning of Kavya + Eric’s Villa Christina wedding in Atlanta, GA.

I had SO much fun learning about the wedding planning business, tablescape design, and 3729272827 ways to fold a napkin yesterday at @thevivifyworkshop - but even better was coming face to face with all the unique stories of how we got here. Of what makes us tick. The reasons why we get out of bed before sunrise on most weekends, and why we continue to stay awake at night long after the last piece of cake has been cut and the confetti’s been swept away. We are in the business of people, and we are in the business of love. I’m ferociously into remembering the WHY, and I challenge you to do the same! Day two of #thevivifyworkshop begins NOW, can’t wait to share all the goodies in my stories today!! Photo from a delicious afternoon with @vofloraldesign. Planning by @smittenkissweddings_events, rentals by @thechiavariguys and @partycrushstudio, photographed on my #Contax645 on @kodak Portra 400 stock and processed by @photovisionprints.
Can you believe the views from this tiny city park? From Isabell + Anthony’s anniversary session in San Francisco. I’m off to @thevivifyworkshop today and I’m so excited to meet and grow with sooo many other wedding industry professionals. I seriously can’t wait!!

Pictured: one immensely large rock that tourists looooove stumbling out of bed at sunrise to see. I am that tourist. Here is my rock picture. ⛰ Shot on a #Contax645 using @kodak Portra 800 stock and processed by @photovisionprints.
A quick moment with the girls, before they lined up for Kristina + Harminder’s beautiful Gurdwara wedding - the first of two ceremonies that day! Makeup by @mua_mashriq, shot on location at @sanjosegurdwara using @fujifilm_profilm, processed by @photovisionprints.
The work wife, @schmohee, in Joshua Tree. Shot on @kodak Portra 800 stock and processed by @photovisionprints. We met for the first time in a little neighborhood coffee shop in 2016. Five minutes later, I had HER engagement ring on MY finger, and the rest is (a very well-documented, Asana-scheduled, visually traceable) history. I wouldn’t have this cozy studio to rest my butt in, nor half the logic and sense in my client emails without her. Looking forward to celebrating her birthday in a few short days! 🎉
Amy and Alec and my obsessive love for double exposures are up on the blog today! Link in bio 💕 I shot the first frame of them into the sun, and then used my second frame of the Yosemite scenery to fill in the shadows. Thanks to @photovisionprints and @fujifilm_profilm for always delivering the goods. Check out the blog post to see all the amazing spots we adventured to during our weekend in the Sierra Nevada mountains!
Putting the finishing touches on this beautiful wedding gallery today!! 💕 (also using Instagram audience as my accountability partner for today 😂).
