Hayes Valley Engagement | Jana + Darren | San Francisco

I love it when my couples have fun with their engagement shoots.  We live in a city where we have the greatest food, so naturally our engagement session revolved around eating, eating, and more eating.  Hayes Valley in San Francisco is a great hangout spot with lots of great food places and charming boutiques, which made for the perfect backdrop for Jana & Darren.  Looking forward to celebrating the big day with you both!

Calistoga Ranch | Napa Wedding | Judy + Pablo

Judy and Pablo’s wedding was a reminder of how precious life really is.  We are in an industry is about love, romance, and everything pretty.  During the wedding planning, Pablo fought and conquered cancer.  During his recovery, it reminded him and Judy of the most important thing about their wedding, which is a celebration with their family and friends.  The beautiful venue and pretty wedding details are important but the focus was  to cherish this special day with their loved ones!  Cheers to Judy and Pablo to healthy and loving marriage!
