I have no words for how totally gorgeous this day was! I’ve shot at San Francisco City Hall several times before, but only during weekdays where the building is swarming with dozens of couples & their photographer as we all awkwardly compete for space with the best light. Having the entire building all to ourselves for Bonny & Brian’s wedding was an absolute, literal dream come true! The natural light on the fourth floor is what gets my inspiration juices flowing and my shutter a’ snappin’! I could have stayed there all day & photographed these two.

Flower crowns, golden light & a drop dead gorgeous couple, agh! It’s all I need. I met Victoria & Kyle way back in 2016 for their engagement session. Lots of life has happened since then but I’ve been so happy & honored to photograph them several times since our golden hour sesh at Coyote Hills Regional Park. Now they have a sweet baby girl & next month I’ll photograph these two saying their I do’s! Sometimes my work can seem a job, but I love realizing how ridiculously blessed I am to stay in touch with my clients during some of the biggest, most special moments of their lives & be able to capture them in photographs. It’s seriously the biggest honor & makes me feel like I have the best job in the world!

When my friend Katie asked if I would photograph her wedding I was so excited! She has the sweetest spirit & an amazing quirky style– I knew her celebration would be an absolute delight. We met over coffee to discuss details, and she told me she wanted to give me complete creative freedom, to take risks & do whatever I wanted when it came to photos. What resulted was a mix of my usual style with a bit more emphasis on a documentary approach, which I always want to dabble in more of! Even though I ended up being super sick (worst timing ever!) it was definitely one of my favorite days to capture. Katie & Josh were married under a blanket of the tallest trees, tucked around a group of their closest friends & family. One of my favorite parts was when Katie sang “You Are My Sunshine” to her love in front of everyone, under the altar that Josh had made himself with their initials carved into it. Lavender was tossed lightly onto their faces as they walked down the isle for the first time as husband and wife. It was an absolutely picture-perfect wedding that I’m thrilled to share with you!
