Michelle and Kyle Got Married!San Francisco, CA

Michelle and Kyle Got Married!
Going into their wedding, the main thing that stuck in my head about Michelle and Kyle was something that they said during our first meeting. They just wanted for their guests to have a good time. This meant no big production, not a lot of events to break up the party... just food, drink and fun. Fortunately, that's exactly what happened. Guests came in from all ov[...]

Emma and Ian Got Married!Fairfax, CA

Emma and Ian Got Married!
Emma and Ian are one of those couples who you know are just made for each other. Before their wedding day, I had only met Emma, so I wasn't sure exactly what they were like as a couple. Once I met Ian, I knew that they were the real deal. One of the things that really stood out was how relaxed their wedding day was. Everyone was enjoying themselves, yet everything[...]

Humsa and Saahil's Mehndi Ceremony
On a warm spring evening in May, I was fortunate enough to photograph Humsa and Saahil's mehndi ceremony. Although I wasn't their wedding photographer, I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to spend this one evening with their family, friends and the two of them. Humsa was radiant throughout the evening and, although she couldn't move around due to the henna being [...]

Rachel and Ken Got Married!Healdsburg, CA

Rachel and Ken Got Married!
The day that I drove up to Healdsburg to photograph Rachel and Ken's wedding at Villa Chanticleer, life was good. I was leaving the hustle and bustle of San Francisco behind and heading towards someplace a little more relaxed. After sitting in traffic with thousands of other people who were doing the same thing, I finally arrived in Healdsburg. The drive up to Villa C[...]

Lauren and Tom’s Big Fake San Francisco WeddingSan Francisco, CA

Lauren and Tom's Big Fake San Francisco Wedding
Last month I had the pleasure of photographing Lauren and Tom's wedding here in San Francisco. Here's a question for you, though... can you have a wedding if you're already married? The answer is definitely YES! Lauren and Tom had a vow renewal that was disguised as a wedding, thanks to The Big Fake Wedding. For those who don't know, The Big Fake Wedding is basically [...]

2016 Favorite Wedding Photos – Second Shooting

2016 Favorite Wedding Photos - Second Shooting
Every year, one of my favorite things to do is work with other wedding photographers as a second shooter. Not only do I get to hang out with some great people, but I pretty much always learn something as well. This year I mainly worked with two different Bay Area wedding photographers: Holly Drennen and Jeremy Hohengarten. Thanks to these two awesome people for trusti[...]

Kristen and David Got Married!San Jose, CA

Kristen and David Got Married!
Kristen and David's San Jose wedding was my last of the year and I couldn't have hoped for a better grand finale to the 2016 wedding season. From the wonderful people to the beautiful venues to the amazing weather, weddings don't get much better than this. Kristen's ladies were so much fun to be around (as you can probably tell from the Bridesmaids-inspired photo) [...]

San Francisco City Hall Weddings

San Francisco City Hall Weddings
Ever since the first time I stepped foot in San Francisco's City Hall, I knew I wanted to photograph a wedding there. The architecture is just so grand and classic, it seems much more like a wedding venue than a government building. In the past few months, I've had the opportunity to photograph a couple of weddings at City Hall. The first was Guinnevere and Elise'[...]

Christine and Josh Got Married!San Francisco, CA

Christine and Josh Got Married!
When a couple is getting married and I'm photographing their wedding, I always try to meet with both of them before their wedding day. Typically this happens automatically, either during our initial meeting or at the engagement session. Every once in a while though, I'm meeting a bride or a groom for the first time on their wedding day. That's exactly how it happened [...]
