    Nature Friends Wedding Photographer : Rena and Gary

    Nature Friends in the Oakland Hills was the venue for this lovely wedding. Rena and her groom, Gary did many things themselves in preperation for this celebration including designing and making the cufflinks, hanging banners, setting tables, and putting together her own bouquet with friends shortly before the ceremony. Rena even designed her own wedding gown which was absolutely stunning. The little jacket Rena put on as the evening wore on? Rena embelished it herself. Headpiece? Done by Rena! The ceremony site, flanked by huge eucalyptus trees, overlooked the bay and a wonderous oak tree provided an outdoor room for the dinner reception. After dining on a delicious feast, the…

    Private Napa Estate Wedding Photographer : Anna and David

    Anna and David were married at a private estate in Napa which is a gorgeous organic farm studded with fruit and oak trees. It was a really warm day, but everyone kept cool with iced drinks, parasols and the lovely shade of the giant oaks. I love the colors Anna and David chose. The blush pink of the bridesmaid’s dresses really popped against the white buildings and gorgeous greenery of the grounds. The groomsmen’s bowties and sharp tuxes kept the garden affair formal. Off the Beaten Path did an amazing job putting together beautiful tablescapes which included bright flowers, mercury glass, and birch containers. This was such a fun wedding to…

    I love the energy that surrounds this couple… Teresa and Jared are so much fun, full of laughter, love and surrounded by a wonderful group of friends and family.

    Kari and Chris chose a beautiful venue in Woodside called The Mountain Terrace for their wedding.

    Blair and Kevin celebrated their wedding at The Mountain Terrace in Woodside. It was a beautiful day made even more gorgeous by the amazing floral design of Amy Burke Designs.

    San Jose Wedding Photographer : Katie and Jeff

    Katie glowed as she married Jeff at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph in San Jose on a glorious July day. Before the ceremony, Katie got ready at the Hotel De Anza in Downtown San Jose. Her best friend and mom helped her into her dress before heading out to The Rose Garden where Jeff was waiting to see her for the first time as a bride.  Towering redwood trees and blooming roses surrounded them as they shared a sweet few moments together.  I love a first look! Isn’t this jade ring amazing? It was Katie’s grandmother’s ring. The mass and wedding ceremony were beautiful in the stunning Cathedral. Katie…

    Georgina and Ferry’s destination wedding took place at an absolute gem of a location- Kenwood Inn and Spa in Sonoma, California. I loved their intimate affair that was celebrated on the patio overlooking the pool. The surrounding gardens and buildings give the impression that you have been whisked off to an Italian Villa. Georgina hails from New Zealand, and Ferry from the Netherlands. They reside together in the UK and share a love of dancing. I was thrilled and honored to photograph their beautiful day. Congratulations you two!! The Mountain Terrace Wedding Photographer : Teresa and JaredBay Area Engagement Photographer : Katie and Jeff

    Carmel Engagement Photographer : Brittany and Mike

    I had an absolute blast with these two! We explored 17 mile drive in Carmel for their engagement shoot. It was really special to photograph them together as they don’t get to see each other too often. With busy careers that have them living in different cities and hopping around the country, they are always looking forward to their next time together. It was an honor to document this time for them. Oh and… Go Ducks! San Jose Wedding Photographer : Katie and JeffThe Mountain Terrace Wedding Photographer : Blair and Kevin
