Cliff and Vivian are truly two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and I think it shows in their photos! They had such a good time on their wedding day!
This was my first time shooting at Carmel Valley Ranch and I loved it! There were loads of gorgeous spots to photograph (in fact, it was hard to pick and choose which locations) and the staff was terrific. The food was also really yummy.
Sarah Ward of Sarah Ward Events did a great job of coordinating the day, and I loved Chic Event Rentals and Rose Hip Floral’s simple design ideas. The architecture at Carmel Valley Ranch and the setting kind of speaks for itself!
Location: Carmel Valley Ranch

With the help of some extraordinarily talented vendors — including fashion designer Suzanne Hanley of Atelier Des Modistes, Kathleena Gorga of Conscious Beauty and florist Melissa Comito of A Simple Ceremony — we put together a couture fashion shoot inside the Swigg Suite of San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel. And I’m excited to say that Style Unveiled has featured that shoot on their blog!

Mark and Kat planned such a sweet Easter weekend wedding at the quaint Inn Marin. The colors were right out of the Easter egg coloring of our pasts, complementing the lush green surroundings perfectly. When I saw Mark in his morning suit and top hat, I was charmed even more! Kat’s family and friends were in from England and we were all super lucky that the weather held up for us, as early spring in the Bay Area can be rainy! Congratulations Mark and Kat!
Venue: Inn Marin
Florist: Grant Avenue Florist
Cake: Nora’s Patisserie
Caterer: Inn Marin

I just shot this maternity session a couple of days ago and won’t have time to do the edit for my clients until I return from my vacation (starting Sunday!), but I’m excited about some of these beautiful photos and wanted to share a few! Elanne did a wonderful job with me. I know it’s got to be hard going through a cold session with limited movement! Lucky she brought a warm robe to cozy-up in between shots!

Kate Siegel of Kate Siegel Events asked me for a photo of the Flood Mansion for an article she was writing for a blog called Vivanista and I was happy to oblige since The Flood Mansion is one of my favorite SF locations! Just one photo, but always fun to be published!
