Anticipating the arrival!

I had the pleasure and honor to photograph a beautiful friend of mine that is expecting a baby soon! What an incredible woman Jamille is. She truly embodies a nurturing and warm spirit, a beautiful smile and a baby inside of her that has her absolutely glowing! We hung out, drank coffee and casually took pictures of all the cuteness that surrounded her in the house.  Its such an incredible change to see a woman go from being single, to being in love, to this miraculous change of embodying and creating an extension of that love. Im so happy for Jamille and her partner and their new adventure as parents....I just know they will be stellar parents. 

Shehla & Damian | Observation Post San Francisco, CA

Arriving to the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins in San Francisco, I entered the hotel suite to a very calm, beautiful bride sitting in a chair getting her makeup and hair done.  Shehla greeted me with a warm smile and soon the room was sparkling with dazzling jewelry, dresses and shoes. Shooting Shehla's portraits were magical! I loved the blend of soft beautiful light that entered the room and the contrast of her red gown with hints of sequin sparkles and floral pattern. Damian and Shehla had their Nikkah ceremony at the Observation Post in the Presidio just a few hours later. The blush and gold table settings and white and pink florals created a soft pallet that paired well with the decadently ornamented guests.  Congratulations to the lovely couple!

Radonich Ranch Country Wedding

I had the pleasure of second shooting for long time friend and business associate Sonya Yruel.  We had such a lovely time capturing Marci and Kyle out on Radonich Ranch in Los Gatos. The country style wedding was surrounded by rolling hills, amazing sculptural tree, and a calming river that ran beside the property. Between the scenery and the magic of the day, there was never a dull moment between the couple. 

Eve & Corey

 

The story of Eve and Corey is an amazing tale that started as a young love in high school. I had the pleasure of knowing these two lovebirds at San Francisco School of the Arts High School at the age of 14. I remember the progression of what started out as an innocent love, and, unbeknownst to us all, would turn into an everlasting joining of two souls, Eve and Corey. After high school, the young lovers parted ways, however, it wasn't long before they found their way back to each other, and that feeling of home. 

The two were married at Clos La Chance winery in San Martin, and Laif and I were honored to take part in documenting one of the most important weddings I will probably ever shoot. I have so much gratitude to have witnessed such a profound love that truly brought tears to my eyes... She was such a stunning and elegant Bride, escorted by her son Elijah down the aisle. All I could think of when I was capturing Corey's expression as his Bride was presented to him was...."first love and definitely for the rest of their lives." Congratulations Eve and Corey. We love you... -Blue Note Weddings
