While Sam’s version was very sweet, Derek’s was told from a fairytale perspective, […]

I have been so lucky since moving to the Bay Area to get to meet with some of the most amazing couples! I love the connections that are made, and Sam was no different! She and I were on the phone for close to an hour the first time we talked and hearing all about […]

Melanie & James sat down with me in a Starbucks just over 6 months ago! Their engagement session has been long anticipated and I am so excited to get to share some of their images from Sunday’s session with you! I’ve known that their session was going to be so much fun since the day […]
