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!

Engagement Session | Rodeo Beach | San Francisco | Steph + Bennett

I sometimes take for granted living in beautiful California where we have beautiful scenery and gorgeous light.  My couple wanted a location that was woodsy so I found this groove of eucalyptus trees in Marin County.  We complimented this with the sun-kissed coastline at Rodeo Beach.  This type of scenery and light lends itself to shooting film.  My beautiful couple Steph and Bennett were such a treat to photograph.  They are so beautiful in front of my camera as well as beautiful human beings.

Lin Family Garden and Mansion | Mandarin Oriental | Taipei Wedding | Samantha + Chris

As a photographer, I am very fortunate to travel to far away destinations for my client’s weddings and celebrations.  Having the opportunity to combine my love of travel and photography is something that I am truly grateful for and never take for granted.  It’s been many years since I last visited Taipei so I did some research of locations for our outdoor portraits.  The Lin Family Garden and Mansion was even more spectacular in person then online and made for the perfect backdrop for our shoot.  As soon as I set foot on the grounds, I immediately felt transformed to ancient China.

The reception that followed was nothing but a first class affair at the Mandarin Oriental Taipei.  The flowers, lighting, and decor made for a glamorous celebration.  Our lovely bride Samantha had three stunning outfit changes and she definitely looked that the queen that she deserved to be on her wedding day.  Cheers to Samantha and Chris on a magnificent day!
