Spent a lovely morning today with these two for their anniversary session at Land’s End ♥️ I could go back to this space a million times and never shoot it exactly the same. Now it’s time to power through and get as much done as possible before tonight’s session! 💪🏻 I’m currently 100% powered by Costco bulgogi. Let’s do all the things!! Shot on digital and edited with @mastinlabs.
The coolest elopement style 👌🏻 We literally couldn’t walk anywhere in San Francisco’s city hall without someone stopping us to compliment Judy and Greg’s incredible wedding ensembles! I loved Judy’s chic pantsuit and how well it matched the lines of Greg’s custom suit. Can’t wait to share more of this sweet wedding soon ♥️ yes, I’m back to editing on Sunday mornings because it is NONSTOP AROUND THE CLOCK OVER HERE.
The end of summer is rapidly approaching in San Francisco, but there’s still so much to do before the month of Fogust officially hits the city 💨 🌁 I’ve got some amazing anniversary sessions next week that I can’t wait to capture, plus the BIGGEST wedding celebration EVER at the end of the month in Tahoe! It’s going to be an insanity adventure with the absolute best vendor team ✌🏻until then, it’s editing cave time 😂 see y’all on the other side! Photo from Saumya + Ashish’s sunrise session at the Louvre in Paris, France.
Just got my scans back from this incredible Napa Valley elopement! Angie and Stephen’s intimate celebration in wine country was definitely one of my summer highlights. These two exchanged vows in front of their closest family and friends at a beautiful glen setting in @meadowoodnapavalley and then treated the whole party to a private dinner at the memorable French Laundry. Can’t wait to share more soon! Film processed by @photovisionprints 💕
I have officially lived in San Francisco for the past three years now, yet with this recent move, I feel as though I’m just now coming to terms to many aspects of city living. Like negotiating the art of street parking. And how to receive packages (without them mysteriously disappearing). And what life looks like when you’re a “touch and use everything” type of cooking chef and there’s no dishwasher in the kitchen. Luckily, the days of moving my car once every single hour between 8am-5pm will (hopefully) end soon as I apply for a city parking permit today 😅 It’s not an entirely unwelcome learning experience. Yesterday I walked to a neighborhood market and a kind stranger taught me the best ways to pick fresh produce. Rusty and I go to the nearby park three times a day 🐶 The mailman is a friendly soul. I can’t wait to get our dining table set up soon and start hosting friends for dinner! 🥘 Styling and floral design by @frenchgreyevents, hair and makeup by @thefrenchbeauty, dress by @efbridal, suiting by @lapieceur, rings by @myrtillebeck, film processing by @photovisionprints.
My favorite stories growing up were the ones where the heroine discovered her own power through roads of adventure and magic. Even now, I could reread Tamora Pierce’s novels over and over again and still feel the same exhilaration as the first time I turned those pages. It’s funny, just like those characters, sometimes I have to go very, very far away from home and my comfort zone to discover that I had the right answers inside me all along. This session was shot in London, in the courtyard of an old abandoned church that had been bombed out during the Second World War. I was initially so nervous about planning multiple portrait sessions in Europe with little to no reference on possible locations and scenery. Lo and behold, the same method that works for me out here in the States is what made this shoot happen. Special shout out to the satellite terrain option on Google Maps! And to St. Dunstan-in-the-East for staying so resilient through the last 900 years of history ⛪ @photovisionprints @annaguzak @sassiholford @katiedevaney_
this kind of light. i’d be okay with this kind of light, always. shot at sunset at Rodeo Lagoon in the Marin Headlands. do any photographers here utilize a lot of Pinterest for your business? if so, I’d love to chat with you more! 💕
Breakfast in Paris 💕🇫🇷 During Kirsten and Tyler’s honeymoon session, we stepped into this little streetside cafe just as the sun was coming up and the sidewalks were starting to fill with people getting ready for work.. but really, the French pace of life is so much calmer, so it was a lot less bustling around and a lot more leisurely stopping for croissants and coffee ☕️ I’m taking this next week to focus on updating my blog and adding all my latest sessions to my website. Can’t wait to share all the love stories from around the world with y’all soon! Shot on a #Contax645 and processed by @photovisionprints.
