Sharing some of my favorite moments from Danielle & Drew’s summer wedding at Barndiva!  It’s hard to choose a favorite when you have adorable flower girls, the proudest papa and the sweetest toast moments!  And, with a stunning venue like Barndiva, it’s easy to get lost in the rustic decor.  Congrats to Danielle and Drew!  It was a pleasure photographing your wedding day!! xoxox

This past summer I was commisioned by Amy Kuschel to document her amazing bridal salon in San Francisco’s Union Square! It was such a treat for me to see how the process of making a wedding dress works! From sketching to fabric selection to pattern making and hand-sewing, it was incredibe to witness! 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! (Like Jessica and Jami and Danielle and Eva.)

Amy truly is one of a kind and her next collection: PEACE & LOVE is one for the books! With a nod to the 60′s scene (hello mod + boho vibe!) she’s really going to make a huge hit for brides across the nation in 2015. Excited is an understatement! Stay tuned for our next shoot together… xoxox And, to my BFF, I’m looking right at you.  These new dresses would be perfect for your wedding!

2014 has been the year of me shooting multiple weddings at the same venue and I love it.   Just last week I shared this Dawn Ranch wedding and now I’m so excited to share with you Megan & Evan’s wedding! They hired a team of some incredible players including Enjoy Events, Shotgun Floral, Katie Nash and Elizabeth Hummert to name a few!  Megan (an interior designer by day) left no detail behind! Like starting with handmade signs from wood taken from Evan’s family farm and placed on each cabin personalized for their guests.  Then, Evan’s momma made each gingham napkin that also matched the groomsmen attire!  They had ridiculously beautiful florals, a really cool escort card display, paper airplane ceremony programs, and speaking of ceremony check out their amazing seating!  It was a thoughtful wedding filled with so much love, color and amazing energy. I mean —  I could go on and on and on…. so I’ll just let the photos take over!  Enjoy!  And, thank you Green Wedding Shoes for the lovely feature!  Congratulations Megan & Evan!
