John & Marilyn tie the knot - San Francisco City Hall
I will spare the words for this post and keep it short, because the moments speak for themselves. John and Marilyn are deeply in love. The connection these two have with each as well as their children were incredibly visible the day they wed. Congrats John & Marilyn, here’s to many more years of love.
I’ve known this cute little guy for a while now. Maybe over 4 years. This weekend he turned 8. What!? Where has the time gone? Kayden’s mom called and asked if I could do a portrait session and use the images for a personalized birthday party invitation. Of course I could and even more so because he’s so dang cute. Here are some of the images from his session, as well as the invitation to his PAR-TAY!!
Check out these next few frames of Kayden spelling out his name. Super cute!
Happy 8th Birthday Kayden! I hope you had a blast!
Walid & Anosha - Engagement Session - San Francisco
Walid & Anosha were so cute and quiet about their love. I loved learning about how they met, the things they did for fun and about the big wedding in September in San Diego. Here are a few images of their engagement session I captured in San Francisco.
Loved Anosha’s dress!
Walid was looking very dapper himself.
It was the perfect day in the city. Clear, bright and a little breezy.
I always have my couples dance when I shoot their engagement session. II tell them they need to practice for their first dance anyway. Loved these few frames of Walid and Anosha while they danced with the city in the background.
Check out this next shot! Both Anosha & Walid have great taste. Check out that purse :) as well as that ring!
Melody & Mervin and I got together to document their one year wedding anniversary! We stopped by their wedding venue first to reminisce then headed over to a beautiful garden for some more shots. Enjoy many many many more happy years together you two!
Melody & Mervin’s sense of humor was the best! They were telling jokes left and right at their session.
I LOVE these next 3 images. I asked them to tell me the story of their first date. Let’s just say there were two versions :)
Where can I start? Devon & Fred’s wedding in one word: enjoyable. I felt like I was a guest and I just happened to bring my camera and document their wedding day. Their wedding was Saturday June 4 and I am mentioning the date because it was RAINING (rain in June, in California,really?!) But they say rain on a wedding day is good luck! Devon & Fred’s wedding was honestly filled with love,family and friends who genuinely cared about the two of them and wanted to make them feel special all day. Here are just a few shots of how awesome their day was!
Some of the best speeches I ever heard happened at this wedding.
Devon’s mom telling Fred “I love you regardless of what your family was telling me”
Devon’s dad was hilarious. He claimed not to be her father, but a plumber who came to the house to fix a broken pipe. He then happened to find her “dad’s” suit and it fit perfectly so he decided to stay for the wedding.
That’s right, Fred jumped in the pool after all the festivities were done and the sky cleared for a few seconds.
Amy & Ethan - Engagement Session - San Francisco,CA
Amy & Ethan were so much fun to hang out with. We walked around the Legion of Honor grounds yesterday evening and got some amazing shots. They are getting married in 2 weeks! Amy is from San Francisco and Ethan is from Australia (I loved his accent). They met while Amy was on vacation in Sydney. These two are just too cute! Enjoy their session.

Dan & Uyen - Wedding Celebration - Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton
Dan & Uyen tied the knot earlier this year in Vietnam with their families. On May 22nd they invited their close family and friends to join them in celebrating their new lives together in Half Moon Bay at the Ritz Carlton. It was a beautiful day out and everyone was happy to be able to celebrate with the two love birds! Here is a selection of images from the day. Enjoy!
