Romantic Wedding Cakes from Jasmine Rae

Romantic Wedding Cakes from Jasmine Rae

Who doesn’t love cake?  I’m sure there are many who don’t, but I love it. Chocolate, no frosting, and then ice cream on top!  But I can also appreciate the most delicate designs, and am happy to have teamed up with Jasmine from Jasmine Rae Bakery.  She and I worked together many moons ago on a wedding – the cake she made was this perfect replication of an old vintage car, the detail on it was amazing.  Fast forward  and here we are! Jasmine’s cakes take my breath away and are the perfect compliment to the most romantic affairs.  And, if you’re curious, check out this article posted on Snippet & Ink about the cost of a wedding cake!  Thanks to Celeste Green for styling, La Fleuriste for the fresh flowers,  Sarah’s Stands for the cake stands and Sugar Digital for the retouching work.

San Francisco University Club Wedding :: Marie & Joe

San Francisco University Club Wedding :: Marie & Joe

I have been a been quiet lately. For good reason of course because my summer and early fall has been spent photographing the most amazing couples! I’m sharing my favorite snaps from Marie & Joe’s wedding this past May. They officially married on a Friday at San Francisco’s City Hall, and then held a reception the next day at The University Club. These two really set the tone for my whole wedding season. It allowed me to really dive in deep and photograph not just these beautiful moments, but the feeling of their wedding day. Joe and Marie are all about being fun, adventurous, HAPPY, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with these photos from their day. Take a peek at my favorites below. xoxox

And what’s even more impressive? All her dresses are made in San Francisco! This campaign I photographed tells a wonderful story and I’m so happy that so many of my brides have worn her designs!

Playful Engagement Session in Calistoga

Playful Engagement Session in Calistoga

I spent a several hours with Melanie and Will in wine country!  We went for a playful approach, starting with a tandem bike excursion in Calistoga, then happening on a quaint wine bar and finishing off the day chasing the sun. These types of sessions are always so fun – it’s a great way to ease into being photographed and for us to get to know each other! I am looking forward to their wedding this fall.  xoxo – Christina
