Christine and Alex told me they wanted to dress up in 20′s/30′s vintage clothing for their engagement shoot and after much thought about the right location, I think the SF city hall ended up to be the perfect choice! What fun!
What wonderful locations and crafty details for Allie and Rick’s wedding. Allie and her mother were completely hands-on for this wedding and the care put in the details showed. They even made the tablecloths! The locations were The Mission Santa Clara and Nestldown in Los Gatos. I had never photographed at Nestldown and met Allie and Rick on a foggy drizzly day for a pre-scout and fell in love with this location. It’s tucked in the Santa Cruz mountains and with its rustic feel and roaring fire, it’s a wonderfully cozy location for a winter/early spring wedding.
to add to the winter wedding feel, Allie and Rick had a candle lighting ceremony right before they exchanged vows….
Florist: Violetta Flowers
Baker: Satura Cakes
Oh my. Look how in love he is with his “lovey”……
and then lovey had him arrested by REAL Star Wars Storm Troopers! Now who do you think is the Star Wars fan?…..
and then they made their grand exit! Congratulations Allie and Rick! I had such fun photographing your wedding!
My incredible massage therapist and friend Angela, asked me to take her maternity photos and I was thrilled! Angela is super creative and when she told me she had costumes to bring along, I knew we would have a great time. 12 days before her due date, she had amazing stamina and energy and was such a good sport. We shot for THREE hours! I love doing maternity photos and am thrilled when a soon-to-be mom is willing to do partial or full nudes. There’s nothing more beautiful than a body about to give birth.
