It was an absolutely gorgeous spring afternoon in San Francisco at Sutro Baths recently for Aida and Amiel’s engagement shoot. I just love this shot of them on the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

Ariel and Fernando are absolutely the sweetest couple! And their families are equally as loving and warm people! We had a wonderful time photographing their beautiful wedding at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Livermore and Diablo Country Club in Danville recently. Fernando is from Argentina, so much of his family traveled in for the big day. It was so wonderful seeing these two cultures and two families celebrate this beautiful union. I am always humbled to be invited to such amazing and sacred events.

Here are a few moments of their special day. I hope you enjoy them!

Ashley and Brian flew in from Texas to spend a week enjoying the spa, wine and fine dining at the amazing Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford. I was put in touch with Brian a few weeks ago to help him plan the big moment when he would ask Ashley to be his wife. It is so incredibly exciting being there at the beginning of these couples lives! The nerves, the excitement and joy is often overwhelming. I am so privileged to witness and document some of the most exciting times of peoples lives, and this moment between Ashley and Brian was no exception! The story told in the images below say it all.

Ashley and Brian are an incredibly fun and sweet couple! They insisted that because I was the only witness to their big moment, that I join them for champagne and cheese. I took a few moments with them to hear their story, hear their joy and laughter, and then left them to enjoy this precious time alone together.

The one funny thing that happened while Brian was proposing is Ashley kept asking “what’s that clicking sound?” LOL! Well, that clicking sound is the result of the moments captured below. I hope you enjoy seeing these moments as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

The lush and green beauty of Mount Diablo this time of year is breath taking! I was excited that Ariel and Fernando chose this backdrop for their engagement session recently. We spent several hours hiking around Rock City taking photographs.

Here are a handful of my favorite moments. Hope you enjoy!

If you’ve ever been inside Stanford Memorial Church you know what a magnificent sight it is! When Christina told me she was an alumni of Stanford, and that her, Jamie, and her family and friends were all coming out from Ohio for their Stanford wedding, and wanted me to join them, I was thrilled!

As you can imagine the ceremony was beautiful! I mean really… How dow you take a bad photo in a place like this?!

And Christina and Jamie were so full of joy and life! I don’t think they stopped smiling the entire day!

The wedding reception took place at the beautiful Stanford Park Hotel. I LOVE this hotel! Not just for it’s beauty, but also for how wonderful the staff is! They are amazing! The service and hospitality is really first class!

We had a great time with Jamie, Christina and their wonderful family and friends celebrating their union! Here are a few of my favorite moments of their day.
