When Sam & Derek reached out for their wedding photography, I always ask how they met. Instead of just a small backstory, Sam sent me the link to their wedding site, where they each had their own version of how they met! While Sam’s version was very sweet, Derek’s was told from a fairytale perspective, […]

Wedding dress shopping, at least for me, was one of my favorite parts of my wedding planning process. I had ideas going into the bridal shop of what I wanted, and honestly didn’t expect to choose a dress that same day. Looking back, there are a couple of things I wish I had known and […]

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 […]

When you plan an engagement session, there are a lot of pieces that come into play. You have to figure out location options, what time of day will be best for said location, where will the sun be, how long will we have light, outfits to plan, which locations will work best with which outfit? […]

When you are planning a wedding, there is SO much to think about! As a bride, you invest so much into your wedding photography and I bet you want those images to be as gorgeous as possible! While professional photographers should be able to work with any type of lighting scenario they are surrounded by, […]

Some brides have dreamed of their wedding day since early childhood and have more than one Pinterest board filled with all of the ideas they would love to have for their wedding day. Everyone, meet Hannah! She’d been planning the most elegant rustic wedding with twinkle lights to illuminate the reception site. Well, when Layne […]
