It’s always such a joy to have my wedding clients contact me to let me know they are expecting a baby and also ask me to capture their maternity photos! Allison & Mike’s wedding was a favorite to capture, and I’m so thrilled for them and their upcoming arrival.  They will be wonderful parents, and I can’t wait to meet their little girl!  We met up in Napa for their session, and here are a few favorites!

Allison & Mike, thank you so much for inviting me to capture this sweet time for your growing family.  Congratulations & can’t wait to meet your little one!!

For the film nerds out there, I shot a mix of Fuji 400h, with a Contax 645 and Canon 5dmiii.  Film was developed & scanned by the FIND Lab.

Joanna & Stephen met in London,  live in Hong Kong, regularly travel to explore far off places, and as their family and friends were going to be traveling in from all over the world, they decided to plan a destination wedding in San Francisco!   I loved the locations they selected (the Fairmont Penthouse for their welcome event, St. Patricks for their wedding ceremony and the Asian Art Museum for their reception).  It was an honor to photograph their beautiful wedding events, to be able to capture their sweet story in such amazing spaces throughout San Francisco, and to work with such an immensely talented group of professionals.
