Matt + Jenn | Engagement Session | Alameda CA

Another gorgeous couple! For these two, it was pretty much love at first sight. I love hearing the stories of how couples met..... and their adventures continue..... Life and love make  such great stories. We were set to shoot at Sutro baths, its such a great location as many of you know, so many elements to capture. We were so happy the rains cleared for the day and we set out for the location..... not taking in to account the crazy wind that might be happening. I love a little wind, don't get me wrong!  Wind can bring so much magical movement but,  It was crazy windy, we couldn't even stand on the breaker wall without loosing our balance, the sand was blowing and watery eyes all around. I am so happy we were able to capture a few great images there. We moved on to Alameda a week later for some dreamy light.

A Chef and a Preschool teacher who fell in love over long conversations on the phone, how much more perfect can you get . I am looking forward to spending the day with them in July, capturing all their special memories.

Mr + Mrs Castaneda | Cran Melon Barn | Santa Rosa CA

C+C10.31.2015-772C+C10.31.2015-160 So, i have a little secret..... i love skulls! So this wedding was so dreamy for me on halloween 2015, one of my favorite holidays. This day of the dead inspired wedding was so beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a more perfectly rustic venue. The day was filled with laughter, friends, family, children in costumes and their sweet, sweet little boy - how much better could it get? This is the first wedding i have captured where the bride and groom get to have a shot of tequila together under their arch, that was a winning moment!!
