Sophia + Nick // Fort Baker Engagement

I'm constantly in awe of the couples that I get to photograph. Each one is surprisingly so amazing and I've never had a client that I didn't love! I met Sophia and Nick originally in their request about photographing their wedding, which I was unavailable for. Nevertheless, we ended up with an engagement session together! Sophia had this idea of shooting at Fort Baker, which I had never been or even heard of before (so insane!). This place was absolutely perfect and the weather couldn't have been better. Although it looks like a sunny summer evening, this was mid-December in the Bay Area and all you locals know that it never looks like this. We totally lucked out!

Sophia and Nick are the sweetest couple with a love that shines through their photos. They were so easy-going and up for strange things like climbing on rocks in wedges or walking a million times for me. I'm so thankful that they trusted me to be so up close with my camera or walk out on the rock ledge to get that shot of the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. Enjoy one of my favorite sessions of 2016!

Amber + Sean // Morgan Hill Engagement

It's completely worth waiting for the last 30 minutes of sunlight to capture gorgeous sunset photos. I love the moody light that it always creates with my subjects! Amber and Sean were one of the most fun-loving couples I've had all year. Not to mention they are so sweet! They couldn't stop laughing the whole time and I (and my camera) LOVED it! I am so excited to photograph their wedding coming up in February too. I know it's going to be a crazy fun time! 

Adriana + Adolfo // Hopland Ranch Wedding

Adriana and Adolfo's wedding was one of my highlights of the summer. It was fun reconnecting with Adriana, as I have known her since we were friends way back in Kindergarten. I went to high school with both her and Adolfo, where they first started dating, and I feel so honored to have been able to capture the engagement and wedding photos of the sweetest, most humble couple!

At every wedding I seem to tear up at some point, but it was during their toasts that really got me. It was apparent that their friends and family are so awestruck by their love and care for each other. I was even awestruck! Not only do they have a deep love for each other, but you can tell that at the core they are simply best friends. I wish you two all the best in the decades of marriage to come!

Jake + Kailey // Marin Headlands Engagement

Such a pleasure photographing some friends, Kailey and Jake. It's always fun when you know the couple and it takes a little bit of pressure off so we can all just have fun! I was so surprised at the perfect weather in the Bay Area for this coastal session. Beautiful sunset, too! We also ended the day with Sol Food, my favorite restaurant located in San Rafael. Highly recommended for those of you who haven't been there!

Britt + Ben // Mountaintop Anniversary

For their 1-year anniversary, Brittany and Ben decided to get some photos taken! I went to high school with Brittany (shout out to Humanities Core!) and we recently reconnected due to both of us being in the wedding business now. Not only is she a wedding and event planner, but she also has an amazing blog filled with her own gluten-free recipes, which totally speaks to my heart because I'm gluten-intolerant! Check out her blog Flourless Betty!

Her and Ben were troopers and hiked in the 90-degree heat to get to one of my favorite spots. It was super fun getting to photograph their love and, as you can tell by these photos, Britt's laugh is contagious! Happy anniversary, you two!
