@autumnnorthey was so brave! What you see in this photo: gorgeous florals by @bewilderisms amazing barn wall at @mountainhouseestate and stunning HMU @alldolledup_norcal what you don’t see: the potato bug 😬😳😫 that randomly showed up during this moment of the shoot! She did what I asked and smiled...I would have been screaming/making disgusted faces! Seriously, have you ever heard them walk? Yeah...enough said!
Details...they really are some of my favorite parts of a wedding day!
Let’s chat a moment about restraint, shall we? Three weeks ago, my husband and I, in an effort to get a head start on New Years resolutions, started eating at home more and cooking out of the @cleansimpleeats which has been AMAZING! Lucky for me, my husband doesn’t mind cooking! And no more “what’s for dinner?” Then I went to a styled shoot at @mountainhouseestate where I got up close and personal with these bad boys! I stayed strong, people! But that smell...kind of makes you drool a little 😂 🍩🙊
After 8 years of borrowing a flute, she got her ‘baby’ for her birthday! I played the flute from 5th grade until I graduated, so I understand the love!
Weather in San Francisco is always a gamble...as I drove in from the north, it poured on and off...but we got the most amazing sunset!
Had anyone ever been to the Sutro Baths and had it to themselves? Ever? @nataliefincher and I worked hard to make it look that way!
Have I mentioned how much I love fall? It’s officially sweater season!
I’m a sucker for flowers, thanks @aliciaaa.v for matching so well 😉
After a few weeks of crazy temps, Northern Ca is starting to settle in to fall! The colors of the vineyards are so beautiful, and so is @aliciaaa.v 😍
Sometimes guys like to act like they don’t want to deal with photos- but once they warm up to the idea 😉😂 *The last photo, the groomsman asked me if I was ready...and then planted one 😘 @elovelyo7 you have some awesome friends!
I LOVE these ties! So dapper and fun!
What a weekend! The rain threatened to interrupt festivities all day, but in the end we got to enjoy an afternoon of overcast skies while documenting the love these two have for each other! More to come 😍
This gorgeous brides’ wedding is on the blog today! Go check out the first link above!
I made a promise to myself at the beginning of this year that I would do things outside my comfort zone for my business. I’m continually learning and getting a little braver as I go. I love seeing the growth I have made, and making new goals. What about you? What was something scary you did this past year that pushed you to the next level?
During the Father Daughter dance, the DJ announced if anyone was there with their father, to get up and join on the dance floor. Right before the floor got packed, @nicolel_88 sister and maid of honor jumped up and started dancing with her Dad, too. Such a sweet moment, and I KNOW this Dad’s heart was full!
@konizuka18 and @nicolel_88 wedding reception was at @occidentalunionhotel and wow...I’m not normally a huge fan of indoor reception areas due to the lighting, but this place was incredible! Also, let’s talk about how much hard work was put into these table decorations, all DIY by the bride! **Huge thank you to Union Hotel for the vendor meals we were served, I can’t wait to bring my husband back for date night!
Ok, seriously...between the light through these redwood trees, these amazing bouquets, and these beautiful women-let’s just say I was 😍😍 pretty much all day! Makeup @stefaniefritzmakeupartistry
I don’t really have adequate words to describe yesterday’s wedding. I will say that this couple is incredible. They live in Coffey Park where the Sonoma County fire hit HARD. They were one of the first families I thought of when I heard about the devastation, because I knew they were just a few weeks away from getting married. Thankfully, somehow, their house was spared! When I got the to venue, @konizuka18 showed me the sign they had made and I was so excited to take a photo of them with it. This signifies so much: their love for each other in the toughest/scariest of times, and the love they have for their community! The whole day was centered around their love and the love they have for their family...it was a complete honor to document. So many amazing images to share, so stay tuned!

Loved this little forest spot we found in the hills of San Francisco! These two were so fun, I could have photographed them for hours! HMU Jocelyn @hamaholicstudio
Enjoying the sunset after she said “yes”! 😍💍👏🏻
