If you’re thinking sunny California for your wedding, you’ll be inspired by Kelsey and Bryce’s Half Moon Bay affair. Located ocean side, the ceremony was in the shadow of tall coastal California trees. California was everywhere, from flip flops guests could wear to dance the night away, to the breathtaking views from the ceremony and reception locations, to the gorgeous ocean palette of the wedding details.

I often get questions about our philosophy and how we get engagement photographs that are so unique and creative. The answer is actually quite simple: I listen to you! One of the greatest joys of being a wedding photographer is that you get to witness and document a journey, one that is unique to each couple. I love spending the first parts of our journey together getting to know you.

Brian and Joanne love the outdoors, they love traveling, but they also love to just hang out together and play board games. After a few weeks of exploring who they are as a couple, we started discussing ideas of how we would translate that into great photographs they’d hang really, really big in the house. Why not Yosemite? And why not make it something with that twist that would be *really them*? That’s how the couch, the frames and the books came to life. I hope you’ll enjoy viewing through their gallery as much as we enjoyed this experience! Can’t wait for the wedding :)

We were super excited to photograph Tina & Tiny’s wedding, first of all because it’s Tina & Tiny, but also because we got to return to the Los Altos History Museum, which is a gorgeous wedding location! The Los Altos History Museum has a ranch feeling and every time I return, I see a whole new different angle I’d never seen before. So, without further ado… enjoy!

We’ve been fans of Nestldown for a while now, so when Clara and Peter decided to choose Nestldown for their wedding venue, we swooned a little. The beautiful property is right off the 17 highway and feels like you’re in the heart of the Santa Cruz mountains, when in fact, you’re technically in Los Gatos. There are many gorgeous angles to Nestldown, from the dream cottage, to the pond, to the lake by the ceremony site… but let’s not forget the main attraction: the redwood trees. Nestldown is hidden in a sea of redwood trees; getting married there feels like you own a piece of Muir Woods!

There is a touch of luxury at every point of the wedding day, from the old English car (stick shift! Left handed!) that drives you to the ceremony site, to the mini train you hop on for your grand entrance at the reception. Nestldown is just a feast to the eyes and a completely unique experience. We a lot of fun with great DJ’ing at the end of the night, with blasts of colors from everywhere. Thank you Clara and Peter for having us and congratulations!

Nestldown is located at 22420 Old Santa Cruz Highway  Los Gatos, CA 95033. For more information about the venue and for availability, visit www.nestldown.com

We’re always up for fun and quirky ideas, so when Avanti & Sunil told us they wanted to have fun with balloons, we just couldn’t resist! As we walked around our favorite Mountain View park, we decided on the spur of the moment to rent some bicycles… it’d been AGES since I’d ridden one, and it’s true, you don’t forget! We had many many laughs going up and down the small hills, and amazing light, which was perfect for the medium format Mamyia I brought along!
