Oooooh, I’m so excited for Sarah & Alex’s wedding this September at the Hamlin Mansion in San Francisco!!  We had so much fun during their engagement session, and I know their wedding day will be amazing!!  We met at Stag’s Leap (their favorite winery), and then I took them to some favorite spots in the surrounding area!  I loved watching these two interact; they have so much fun together and their chemistry is so well matched and easy-going.  It’s easy to see how much they enjoy spending time together, and it made it so much fun to be around them and to capture their sweet love!

Here are just a few favorites from their session, or check out their slideshow for more!

I was thrilled when one of my sweet clients invited me to capture Lally & Doug’s engagement party as a surprise gift to this lovely couple!   The party at Cafe Des Amis in San Francisco was great fun, full of close family and friends and the wonderful atmosphere at Des Amis.  I loved capturing all the many smiles that surrounded these two, along with their test run on cake cutting and their lovely toasts.  It’s clear their wedding day will be a wonderful celebration!

Thank you Kelsey & David for inviting me to capture this sweet event!!!

Oh. My.  Goodness.  This is a warning: little Olivia will melt your heart & put a huge smile on your face!!!

I laugh out loud every single time I look at these photos, and since I’ve been looking at them every day for several days while working on the full edit, that’s some staying power!  This was actually our 3rd photo session together; one for her newborn session, one for a holiday mini session and now her 9 month session.  We had so much fun crawling all around, and she was cracking me up!  This little beauty has a million different expressions, all of them heartwarming!  And I loved the moments with Olivia and Mom.  So sweet!

Oh my goodness, what an honor it was to photograph and witness Tracey & Shawn’s elopement!!  These two are so sweet, and so in love, and they put together such an intimate and lovely wedding day.   They arrived in the Napa Valley over a weekend, then planned their wedding for early in the week and spent the rest of the week vacationing.  They selected Brix Restaurant for their ceremony, full of gorgeous quintessential Napa views, and Kimberly of A Beautiful Ceremony, gracefully officiated their ceremony.  We had time before and after to explore the area and capture some sweet images!  Here are just a few favorites below, or check out their slideshow for more!
