A Dreamy Portrait Session with Stephanie

I’ve been wanting to work on a series that chronicles dreams— the etherial, light filled world that exists somewhere in between asleep and awake. Stephanie was a perfect model and so great to work with. I look forward to continuing this series in many different ways. Thank you Stephanie for such a magical day!

Robin and Eric’s Retro City Hall Wedding

I’ve known Robin and Eric from way back in my college days, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled that they asked me to photograph and do the flowers for their wedding. I was stunned by how beautiful and styled their wedding was– you could tell how much thought and effort had gone into all the details of the day. Man do they have some seriously crafty friends! Robin and Eric, photographing your day was a dream for me… thank you for allowing me the pleasure of capturing your love… It’s radiant!

Michelle and Darren’s Tropical Mexico Vow Renewal

3 years ago, Michelle and Darren tied the knot at city hall in San Francisco. It was a spontaneous and sweet day, captured only by a few cell phones.

This was the wedding photo I took of them:


Darren is from Ireland, and most of the extended family members and close friends didn’t get to make it to the original SF wedding. So they decided to renew their vows in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in a beautiful beach ceremony. Michelle walked down the aisle to “let’s stay together” by Al Green, and they recited vows that they both wrote in the golden afternoon light. There couldn’t have been a more picturesque backdrop for their celebration. The evening was filled with heartfelt moments, songs from aunties and even a song from the groom. There was not a dry eye in sight.

Michelle and Darren, I am blessed to call you two of my most wonderful friends. It is so lovely to see two people so crazy about each other, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughs and joy. Let’s renew your vows every 3 years in a tropical location… I could certainly get used to that!

April and Enoc’s SF Baby Bump Session

I spent a gorgeous afternoon with April and Enoc in San Francisco, capturing their love and excitement for the new soul that is expected in their lives very soon! This baby girl is so loved already! We started in Dolores park and then took the scenic route to Baker Beach where April braved the cold water so that we could get some stunning shots of her knee deep in the bay. I met April a few years back on a nursing trip to Costa Rica, and it’s been so wonderful to watch her life unfold just as she had dreamed about when we first met each other.

April and Enoc, thank you for allowing me the pleasure of capturing this exciting time in your life together. Best wishes for a safe and beautiful delivery!
