Anna + Rob

When you know she's the one you will do whatever it takes to get her attention. But what happens when she already knows it too! MAGIC HAPPENS YOU GUYS, MAGIC! Anna knew Rob though a crazy Christmas photo that was hanging on her cousin's fridge, little did she know they would meet in college and become inseparable.

These two threw an epic 5 De Mayo wedding complete with amazing tequila and music to match, I didn't know until the day of that Anna Is part Hispanic and wanted to incorporate hints of her heritage through their wedding with stunning style. But did you guys catch that groom Swag!

I know a lot of my couples don't want to do first looks to keep things traditional-- Truth is nowadays in weddings there are no rules! But some still opt out of first looks. However, First looks with dads are a must!! and a true tear-jerker (I shed a tear or two) And talk about happy tears, I love when grooms show their true emotions and give us all the happy tears.

Mark + Diana | Sutros Baths Engagement Session

It had to be the perfect day, we weren't going to settle for "MEHH" weather and "just roll with it" moments. We waited out the storm and the day finally came where Mark and Diana's engagement session would be perfection. Diana and I met at a previous brides wedding, where she was a brides maid to a very close friend of hers last July, she had such a great vibe around her, the kind of vibe that just makes you feel so welcomed. Mark was the exact same way!! These two were meant to be! 

Mark and Diana met at a music show back in 2011 where they briefly connected.  At the time they were both in different relationships and they went their separate ways. 5 years later, they reconnected and both were looking for something real and genuine. At first, she was very standoffish but that didn't stop Mark from following his heart. Shortly after that, they spent every moment of their time together! 

A little over a year later Mark knew that Diana was the one he would want to spend the rest of his life with. Taking her out to dinner one evening in the beautiful Napa Valley Mark Proposed, the best part is that they also found out they were expecting a beautiful little girl who will be due this fall!! 

Congratulations you two! I am so honored to have been a part of your lives, I can't wait to see what the future holds!

Michaela + Josh | Farmington Wedding Reese Farm


When I met Michaela and Josh, I was actually photographing a Family members wedding. They looked so in love and having a ball dancing together. I knew that when their wedding day came It would be nothing short of fun and sweet all around. And of course, I was right! Michaela is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met, The second you walk in the door her and her family were absolutely darling! Hugs all around, while the girls hustled to get ready and head out to our ceremony. 

I've got to admit Reese ranch was amazing! This rustic venue had such charm with its red barn and complimented their wedding theme. Adorned with eucalyptus garlands and a Gorogrous farm table as a head table, and the cutest dessert cart!

Rodeo beach CA | Anniversary session

Being a Photographer you get to capture all sorts of miles stones. So many engagements, weddings pregancnys, and newborns. but occasionally you get to celebrate with an anniversary session. This Aniversary was very special, Deeanna and Leo drove all the way to the amazing Rodeo Beach in the hidden little cove of San Fransisco! It was such a gorgeous day a little chilly but we toughed it out and made some amazing memories.
