Matt & Kayla's Engagement at Vasona Park

With Fall starting to conclude, I recalled a previous location I did a shoot last year around this time, remembering the trees in perfect color for the setting of this shoot. Matt and Kayla were wonderful people who recently moved here and are still exploring the Bay Area and everything it has to offer! I'm glad this engagement shoot was the first of their many experiences they shall have during their time here. Congratulations!

P.S. - The sign they had their pup hold "My Humans are Getting Married!" is perfect!!

Mike and Brittany

Back in September I held an Instagram contest for a free photoshoot and the participation was awesome! Many were great, supportive friends of mine and I could only wonder who would get picked of them all.

Turns out my old childhood friend Mike Olsen was chosen by random, and he decided to have his shoot with his wife Brittany. Mike still lives in my hometown so it was super casual and easy to meet up and do a quick shoot. 

I love shooting with old friends because not only do I get to produce images with them but I also get some time to catch up and fill each other in with the years we haven't seen each other. Mike has always been the Star Wars fan for as long as I remember, and with that being said, I had to ask if that is still going strong - why did I even ask? Of course it was.

Mike and Brittany are a great and fun couple and I loved doing a mini shoot with them. Congrats again Mike and glad you enjoy your photos!

Grady & Danielle

Grady was an old co-worker of mine and I remember we got along right away due to our mutual interest in photography and our sarcastic humor with each other. I always love doing shoots with old friends because it gives you the opportunity to catch up as well - I feel like I've already said this before but had to mention it again.

I got to meet his girlfriend Danielle, whom he talks so fondly of, and learned that she broke his nose several times (on accident). I've come to a conclusion that Grady is very, very fragile. Nevertheless, the photos came out beautiful and luckily Grady did not sustain an injury.

The Watermans' Wedding at San Francisco City Hall

It was very refreshing to be here once again after a good year or so not getting booked at this location! I always love revisiting old locations because I get to see actual evidence that my photography is improving and I get a chance to be even better than the times before!

I shot for the Watermans a few months back for their engagement and they had enjoyed the photos so much they gave me the pleasure of shooting their wedding day as well! It was a very hectic day for the bride and groom but that didn't stop the photos from turning out beautiful!

 

Featured on BlackBride.com with Monique and Matthew Dutton!

Monique and Matthew Dutton - two amazing clients that I also proudly call my friends - are one of the few individuals that I have worked with for multiple occasions, and for good reason.

I loved photographing their story and seeing their love blossom, from being engaged to newly-wed and post honeymoon. Their immense support for my art and creativity allowed me to capture some of my best work which has even reached recognition in major wedding websites, including what's mentioned in this post :)

I can't thank Monique and Matthew enough for choosing me to capture their lifelong memories - we share a beautiful and unique connection that I simply call harmony. 

Now I'm just waiting for them to ask me to take some baby shower photos, haha!
