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...

I hope you have all had a wonderful Thanksgiving week! We spent our days off at my sister’s house and literally didn’t leave except for Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparents’. The rest of the time was spent playing board games and eating. (We cycled through Seafall, Pandemic Legacy Season 2 and Terraforming Mars, in case you are curious). Wedding season is wrapping up for the year here in the Bay Area, which means it is time to start prepping for next year! My favorite part? Engagement sessions where I get to know my couples better! I am so excited to share this beautiful Russian Ridge engagement with you all.

When I was checking the forecast for this engagement session, I was a little worried because it was supposed to rain a few days before the session. It ended up pouring on Thursday, but on Saturday, we had a beautiful sunny day. We ended up with the most incredible light and a beautiful sunset. I have to say, even though it is a lot chillier, I love winter engagement sessions because the sunsets are the best! I was excited to have the chance to do another session at Russian Ridge. It started out as a favorite hiking trail and has become one of my favorite engagement session locations.

Jennifer and Santos were such good sports about the entire session. I made them hike up a hill, walk through the prickly weeds, climb up two different rocks, and brave the cold. It was worth it though, because these are some of my favorite engagement photos I have taken yet! I cannot wait until their Saratoga Springs wedding in August. It is going to be such a blast!
