Sharon & Chris share such a sweet connection.  They planned a beautiful wedding in Tahoe, and even though the rain was unexpected, I loved the dreamy glow and light it brought to the day.  It made the celebration cozy and natural, and felt like a blessing on a very sweet and enduring love.

Here are just a few favorites from the day…

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.
