Kristina + Tolu | Wedding

Kristina & Tolu had an intimate ceremony at the Lucie Stern Community Center in Palo Alto followed by a gorgeous cocktail hour with family and friends on the promenade. The air was filled with beautiful Spanish classical guitar and joyous laughter.

Thank you Kristina & Tolu for giving me the opportunity to document one of the most important days of your lives.

Esther & Peter | Engaged

Esther & Peter currently live in SoCal but plan on moving up to San Francisco after their September wedding celebration. We had quite an afternoon traversing the vast corners of the city in search of colorful SF landmarks and gorgeous light. Thank you guys for showing me parts of the city I've never seen!

Phyllis + Ben | Wedding

The other day someone asked me what I love most about wedding photography. For me it's all about ANTICIPATION. For Phyllis & Ben's big day I loved all the little details leading up to the ceremony - the handcrafted Cal, Texas, LSU, and Columbia cookies for their guests; the hair & makeup session; the way the bridal party helped each other to put on the finishing touches looking ever so sharp. I loved the joy on Ben's face as he anticipated Phyllis coming down the aisle. That's such a beautiful moment for me. It was awesome to witness Phyllis & Ben's celebration in such a beautiful hotel, surrounded by family and friends.
