Helen Putnam Park Petaluma

Thrilled to share these stunning pictures of Dani at Helen Putnam Park in Petaluma. She’s absolutely glowing in these photos, I am glad to have had the chance to photograph her. Dani contacted me about scheduling a portrait session while visiting Petaluma and also in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband- those photos to soon come- we only had 20 minutes to shoot because storm rolled in just as we got started. Although the weather cut our time short the lighting was amazing and made for some great photos.

Chanslor Ranch Barn Wedding
Anna + Eric Part II

Here’s part two of Anna and Eric’s rustic barn wedding at Chanslor Ranch in Bodega Bay. Anna and Eric put so much of themselves into the day from the table settings to to the DYI photobooth Eric built.

I love how each culture has different wedding traditions. Anna grew up in Russia so at the reception her parents greeted the couple a loaf of karavay (a small round loaf of bread). With their hands behind they’re back, Anna and Eric took a bite from the loaf each one of them attempting to take a larger bite then the other. Whomever takes the bigger bite is the considered the head of the family. After much deliberation, her nephew announced they both took equal size bits, making them both head of household.

San Francisco Argonaut Hotel
Art Deco Wedding

Suzie and Matt’s Art Deco inspired wedding at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco was just smashing. It was such a sweet and touching day from groom’s gift, to the vows they recited to one another, to the joy everyone felt for these two tying the knot. I feel fortunate to have been a part of their special day.wedding ringswedding invitationwedding jewlerywedding suitewedding invitationsbrideletter to bridewedding shoesArgonaut Hotel weddingsbridal prepbridesmaids toastwedding makeupwedding dressbridesmaidbridal prepring bearerflower girlflower girlsflower girl hi-fiveArgonaut Hotel wedding cannerybeautiful bridecannery wedding Argonaut Hotelfirst kissfirst kissjust marriedbride and groomArgonaut Hotel Wedding pictureswedding shoesfirst dancewedding speechwedding speechwedding dance
