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 :)

Linh & Jerome’s wedding in Camarillo, California was nothing short of a fairy tale! They started the day in a beautiful beach house in Camarillo, California with lots of sunshine and fine sand. Linh wore a gorgeous coral fashion forward chinese dress through the traditional (fun!) groom games and during the tea ceremony. I love the emerald green bridesmaid dresses and the succulent, peonie and rose bouquets which elegantly mixed greens and corals. Jerome had a really cute wooden card in store for her!

We went out and about for gorgeous couple-only photographs… amazing light everywhere! I love love love the tree we found on our way to the wedding ceremony and reception location! The ceremony & reception were held in the amazing location that is Tropical Paradise in Camarillo, California. It was gorgeous everywhere you looked – from the beautiful sign and centerpieces with fresh herbs, to the wedding cake, to the sushi bar – so many things to admire! Love was definitely in the air…. congratulations Linh & Jerome!

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!

How can you not fall in love with Clara & Peter? They are just so much fun to be around. Clara & Peter chose to do their engagement session at vineyards they love – at the heart of Napa, California. We stumbled upon amazing oak trees and were simply jaw-droppingly beautiful. We can’t wait for the wedding!

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!
