tips for brides




And thanks for stopping by! My work reflects my desire to add some whimsy, enchantment and beauty to the world. It is my way of sharing a bit of my heart. I love the laughter and smiles, but I am also drawn to the quiet, intimate moments that are filled with emotion. My goal is to capture the essence of your wedding day, all the little things that come together to paint the big picture. 

welcome to my blog...

Are you and your fiance looking for an incredible venue for your wedding in the San Francisco Bay Area? If so, you’re going to love this list I’ve compiled of the best wedding venues in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve been a wedding photographer for four years now and have seen many gorgeous wedding venues in the Bay, and these are the best of the best! They range from beautiful venues with stunning redwoods like Nestldown in Los Gatos, to incredible vineyard venues where you can dine under a canopy of grape vines entwined with fairy lights like Beaulieu Gardens in Rutherford, to majestic estates with gardens straight out of a fairytale, like Filoli Gardens in Woodside. The list is in alphabetical order and will be updated periodically with more venues! There is also a map of all the venues, in case you’re looking for a venue in a particular area!
