I am so excited for Jamie & Phil as they get ready for their big day next month in Aptos at the gorgeous Seascape Resort!  I met them at Seascape’s wedding faire earlier this year thanks to an introduction from the amazing DJ Chris Cali.  It was great to getting to know them better during […]

Jen & Eric | Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Engagement Session

I have so much fun with my couples during our engagement sessions no matter where we end up, whether it’s Napa, SF, or Santa Cruz beach.  It’s a great time for me to get to know them better and to help them understand my photography style so they know what to expect on their big […]

Stephanie & Minh | Almaden Calero Reservoir Engagement Session

When I asked Stephanie and Minh where they wanted to do their engagement session, they said somewhere near a nice lake.  So a lake it was!  I’m out in south San Jose and the nearest lake was at Calero Reservoir. It’s beautiful location and has amazing lighting during the later afternoon hours.  We chatted about […]

Ben’s family has own this amazing property down in Watsonville known as ‘the Flat’ where he and Rebecca will be getting married in April.  It was neat to scout out the property with them and to hear the history behind it.  We did our engagement session at the same time and was blessed with amazing […]

Lani + Chris | San Francisco E-Session

I can’t even begin to tell you how close we were to not getting this shot.  We had found a route to the area where we were going to shoot.  Poor Chris took the lead to an adjacent area and found that it was SUPER slippery.  With catlike instincts, he dropped to his butt and […]

Emily + Vu | Napa Engagement Session

I watch the weather like a hawk, especially since most my engagement and portrait sessions are shot in natural lighting.  In all my years, I’ve never seen the next day forecast goes from 80% chance of rain to 0% chance.  Well it did for my couple Emily and Vu and we high tailed up to […]

Alta Plaza Park | San Francisco Engagement Portraits

I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had to resort to Plan B or even Plan C & D during photoshoots.  That was definitely the case today in San Francisco.  My couple wanted to have their engagement photos taken at the Palace of Fine Arts since they live in the city.  I rolled in […]
