I met Sarah & Lior what feels like a million years ago. Well, it wasn’t quite that long, but it feels like I’ve known them forever. They were living in NYC, and I happened to be shooting a wedding there. So, we met up at one of my favorite restaurants in the city and hit it off right away. They are kind and caring and generous and adorable together and I was thrilled that they wanted me to shoot their wedding in the Bay Area! I’ve been slowly getting to know them, following their planning via Instagram, their cross country move, new jobs and all the details. And on Sunday, everything came together spectacularly! It was the loveliest of days and I couldn’t be more excited for these two!
Sarah & Lior were married at The Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley. I’d never been to Mill Valley before, turns out, it’s adorable and quaint and perfect. I brought the LA weather with me, and we had a beautiful blue sky and a hot day (sorry about that!). But it was perfect, and it was a honor to document!
Sarah & Lior – Thank you thank you thank you! It was such a beautiful day and I am so happy for the two of you! Thank you for letting me be a part of such an amazing day and for introducing me to your hometown! It was an incredible pleasure!

Bright lips. Tassel earrings. Forrest green heels. Ohhh I love a bride that will go so bold on her wedding day! Heather looked absolutely incredible, and each of those details was chosen impeccably! And Kyle, dapper as always. That smile, when he saw her walking toward him, melted me. These two are pretty fantastic!
I think weddings are amazing, and it’s so tough because they go by so quickly. Blink, and months and months of planning is over before you know it. Heather & Kyle decided instead, to make it a two day event! Spread the amazing wedding euphoria out over a few days! I think it was an amazing idea and I am so happy to have been part of day 1, their ceremony. They were married at The Santa Barbara Courthouse, one of my favorites, in a sweet little ceremony, surrounded by their closest family and friends. It was really sweet and funny and beautiful. We shot around the amazing property and then they were off to an intimate dinner, followed by a big party the next evening. It was lovely!
Heather & Kyle – It was a pleasure! You two are pretty amazing and I couldn’t be happier for you! It was an incredible day and I hope that the weekend only got better! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day! Congratulations!

This family has spent more time in front of my camera than any other. There was their engagement, one of my favorites ever. And their super romantic wedding at Lake Oak Meadows. Remember when TJ was a little one, ohhh, two years ago? Well, this little group has grown by one, so they’re back! Brooke is so teeny tiny and just the sweetest. And TJ, ohhh TJ. It took some work to get him to like me, but I think I did it and I adore that little boy.
Document all of these stages for my clients is such a treat for me. Watching them grow, seeing me and my work grow… it’s something so special and I am forever grateful to you all for allowing me to do it. Thanks guys
Hilary, Brian, TJ & Brooke – It was such an absolute pleasure! I am so happy to see you all again, and so happy to document this growing family! You four are so great! So many congratulations!

It’s very rare that I don’t really get to know a bride & groom until their wedding day. I’d met Kristina briefly at her sisters’ wedding a few years ago at The Langham, and was absolutely honored when they booked me over the phone. That feeling of trust is so good! I was nervous, because, I’m usually nervous, but even more so that I didn’t know Kristina & Casey. My goal is always to photograph a couple in their most natural interaction with each other. I was nervous I wouldn’t really know what that was, because I didn’t know them. I was silly. These two are so lovely and made my work so easy. Because they are head over heels in love with each other and it shines out of their faces.
They were married at Saint Monicas Catholic Church, which is so lovely! And a reception at Casa del Mar, even lovelier! The light there, it is something to write home about. The weather was amazing, the room was incredible and the entire event was amazing. Thanks so much to these amazing folks… DNT Events, My Wedding Blooms, The Butter End, Sweet & Saucy Shop & Pacific Events!
Kristina & Casey: You two are fantastic. They day was amazing and I am so happy to have documented it for you. I hope that your honeymoon is treating you well… so many congratulations!

Ohhh, these two. Erin & Brian are two of the most down to Earth, fun and genuine people I know. Their engagement session was one of my favorites this year and I knew that the wedding would be even more spectacular. I was correct! There are no two people that were more relaxed, or seemed to enjoy their wedding day more than these two. It made for a relaxed day, full of laughter and so much heart. Looking back over these images, makes me so happy… it was one of those days that makes me so happy to do what I do.
Erin & Brian – Thank you for such a lovely day! You two make my job so much fun and I absolutely loved documenting your wedding day. I hope you’re having the loveliest honeymoon! Congratulations!

This super adorable family travelled all the way from France to shoot a lovely session with me on this fantastic little beach. Ha, I kid! But they did travel all the way from France for a lovely three weeks in the SoCal sun and some friend time with the always adorable Buccolas (whose family session is coming up)! I was so happy to meet them and so thrilled that they decided to do their family session here. I think that doing these sessions when you’re on vacation, when you’re super relaxed, when there’s nothing else on the agenda, it’s always good! Such a great way to document a fantastic vacation and a growing family!
Charles & Edouard (who turned 1 the day of our session!) are so adorable, so well-behaved and so funny! Charles was a perfect model and Edouard gave me a run for my money! But those eyes… such great eyes! I had such a wonderful time with these sweet little family and am so thrilled with our images. We got some beautiful light on the beach, and then finished up with a birthday cake smash and a glass of rosé (clearly, these are my people!)
Alex, Thibaut, Charles & Edouard – Thank you so much for such a fabulous afternoon! I hope that the rest of your vacation is going so well and that you’re enjoying all of the sun! Perhaps, next time, we meet up on your side of the pond!
