It was so much fun to explore downtown San Jose with these two! They are so joyful and natural together and it’ll be so much fun to capture their wedding later this year! Here are a few favorites from the session – enjoy!
It was so much fun to spend the afternoon exploring Cabrillo Nat’l Monument with Evan & Aileen. We traversed the cliffs of the swirling tide pools, and took in the sweeping views of San Diego from the pinnacle of Point Loma, which rises almost 350 feet above the city and bay below. Evan & Aileen made it a real adventure by climbing, shimmying out to, and squeezing into wherever it seemed the best shot would be. They smiled and laughed the whole time, and you could see how much they just enjoy being together. It’ll be so much fun to be at their wedding in San Diego later this year! Here are a few favorites from this super-fun shoot. Enjoy!
We love it when a couple invites us to travel to be with them at their weeding. In this particular case Dave & Arminé were traveling also, coming all the way out from the East Coast for their wedding in Fresno, CA. One of the things that made this trip so special was the opportunity to spend the day with two people as nice, easy-going and caring as Dave and Arminé. As you’ll see, they had so much fun with their friends and family, and danced and celebrated their way through the whole day! Dave is also a talented photographer, and we were honored by his and Arminé’s trust in our creative vision for their day. We hope you enjoy a few of our favorites from this beautiful celebration!
*Thank you also to Gagan Dhiman for lending his sharp eye and creativity to helping capture this day.
This was seriously one of the funnest wedding day celebrations we have had an opportunity to document. Rarely have we seen such joyful dancing and people having fun with such abandon. There were so many beautiful intimate and personal elements to this day, but at the same time it also felt like this big, communal celebration of Lauren & Jim by their whole circle of family and friends. This entailed lots of fake mustache wearing, jubilant singing, laughter and a serious outpouring of love and appreciation. We hope you enjoy some of our favorite moments from this fun-filled day!

Driving up the winding and beautiful stretch of 101 to Hopland, dotted with live-oak trees and following the meandering path of the Russian river, brought back so many memories. This summer we moved from Arcata on the extreme Northern CA coast back down to our new home in San Diego. During our time in Humboldt County this stretch had been a regular and fond part of our frequent drives from Arcata to the Bay Area. So, returning to Hopland for Sabrina & Mike’s wedding felt especially poignant and enchanting. As you will see, the winery where the celebration took place showcased so much of what is beautiful about Mendocino County, and the serene surroundings seemed to reflect Sabrina & Mike so well. It was also wonderful to see their openness and warmth reflected back to them so clearly through the admiration and love of their family and friends. There were so many beautiful things about this day, but the one that shined through more than any other was the depth of affection that Sabrina & Mike have for each other. It was such a pleasure to celebrate with them and to be there to tell the story of this memorable day!
