Jack London Park Engagement Session
Keith & Emma

Looking forward to photographing Keith and Emma’s Kenwood Farm & Gardens wedding in July. These two love birds are high school sweethearts and are such a delightful couple. When discussing where to meet for the engagement shoot Emma suggested her parents stunning private residence on the edge of Annadale Park in Santa Rosa so that we could include their two pups Dex and Rosie. After snapping a some photos there we headed over to Jack London State Park to continue the shoot.

Congratulations Keith and Emma! You’re the cutest.

The Rites of Summer

We have it pretty good here in Northern California, there isn’t a long dreadful winter that causes us to hibernate for half the year or make long underwear an everyday must have.  We do however- when we’re not in drought- get a substantial amount of rainfall that turns the once golden hillsides into emerald wonderlands.  The past few weeks have been magical with all the wild flowers in bloom and the warm sunny days.

Helen Putnam Park seemed like the perfect place to go when Michaelann and I spoke about locations for her maternity/family portrait shoot.  Over a year ago, 17 months to be exact, I photographed baby Ryder as a sweet little newborn, he’s now grown up to be handsome cherub with tousled curls.

Kaiser Roof Garden Wedding
Rasun & Rhonda

The rain this weekend didn’t put a damper on Rasun & Rhonda’s Kaiser Garden wedding.  Not once did I hear anyone remark about the weather, while it poured buckets outside. Everyone was caught up having a great time celebrating their love for these two. Rhonda looked drop dead gorgeous in her dress and Christian Louboutin stilettos. Champagne was flowing while they danced danced up a storm with their guests . I can hardly believe how fast the day went by.
