Congratulations to Amy and Tim would flew all the way from London UK to get married at the beautiful Oceano Hotel and Spa in Half Moon Bay as their destination wedding location – one of my favorite venues to photograph!  We had actually met each other in person previous to their wedding day but we really hit it off over our phone conversations with them and I knew that their wedding would be a lot of fun which it was.  We got to visit a nearby beach with amazing sea cliff views for pictures of them both and they even had a custom made cake topper that was made to look like them!  It was a beautiful wedding.

Congratulations again and please enjoy the photos!

SOFITEL HOTEL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | CRYSTAL SPRINGS WEDDING | GLORIA + NORMAN

Gloria and Norman had one of the most fun weddings that I have ever photographed.  They had an amazing bridal party and their entire wedding day was filled with nothing by love and laughter.  They got ready at the Sofitel Hotel where Norman surprised Gloria with a guitar music serenade during the first look.  We then went to the beautiful Crystal Springs Golf Course in Burlingame for their ceremony where they exchanged vows and we got to capture some beautiful photos of them overlooking the amazing hilltops views.  We then finished the evening with a beautiful reception filled with non-stop dancing and laughs!

OCEANO HOTEL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY | HALF MOON BAY | RACHEL + ARTHUR

Congratulations to Rachel and Art!  They celebrated their big day at one of my favorite venues in the Bay Area – the beautiful Oceano Hotel and Spa in Half Moon Bay.  Along with their family and friends, Rachel and Art started their day with a first look where Art saw Rachel in her wedding dress for the first time – always such a sweet moment to capture on camera.  We then took some bridal party photos around the hotel before the ceremony and even got a chance to make it to the beach afterward for some more intimate photos of just them two.  Rachel and Art were both so natural and comfortable in front of my camera that it made taking photos of them easy.  They were both constantly smiling and started off their reception with an amazing bridal party dance to set the tone for a night of non-stop partying!

Congratulations and please enjoy the photos!

SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | CIVIL CEREMONY | LINDA + DAN

Congratulations to Linda and Dan!  I had met Linda and Dan a couple years ago at previous weddings and since then, we’ve become good friends.  When they got engaged, I was super excited when they asked me to photograph their private Civil Ceremony at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall on their 1st year wedding proposal anniversary date.  I was also honored when I found out that I’d be their wedding witness!  I absolutely love San Francisco City Hall for it’s grand architecture and having so many beautiful angles and locations to shoot.  Linda and Dan exchanged their rings and after their Civil Ceremony, we captured some beautiful photos of them all around City Hall.  It was such an honor to be a part of their special day.

Congratulations again and please enjoy the photos!

RITZ CARLTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | OLD ST MARYS CATHEDRAL WEDDING | PAULINA + RYAN

Congratulations to Paulina and Ryan on their amazing wedding day!  They started their day getting ready at the beautiful Ritz Carlton in San Francisco and since they were getting married at the nearby Old St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, both Paulina and Ryan walked from the hotel to their ceremony site – I loved this idea.  They tied the knot with a Catholic Church wedding ceremony and afterwards we headed to the Palace of Fine Arts and Fort Mason for photos of them both along with the rest of the bridal party.  Everything was absolutely beautiful and their day went perfectly with everyone partying the night away at the General’s House at Fort Mason.  It was a beautiful wedding venue!

Congratulations again and please enjoy the photos!

THE CARNEROS INN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY | NAPA VALLEY | VICTORIA + DANIEL

Victoria and Daniel’s wedding was one of my absolute favorite weddings of the year!  Not only was it held at the gorgeous Carneros Inn located in Napa Valley, but all of the intricate details and planning made capturing their wedding amazing – I couldn’t stop snapping away with my camera!  Victoria and Daniel chose The Carneros Inn as their destination wedding venue (most of their guests flew in from Hong Kong) for their love of traveling and wine.  They even had a chocolate and wine pairing plate as one of their courses for the reception – very cool!  They were both so natural in front of my camera and you could feel the love that they had for each other during their entire day.  Their wedding was chic, modern, and elegant.  And working alongside a team of amazing vendors, made their day go off perfectly.

Please enjoy the photos from their wedding day and all of their wedding day details!  Congratulations!

SAN FRANCISCO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY | CRISSY FIELDS | GLORIA + NORMAN

Gloria and Norman both live in the modern Fillmore district of San Francisco and what a better place to have their engagement photos taken than at the area they always hang out at.  I love the city and especially love photographing engagement sessions in an urban street atmosphere since there are so many different colorful backgrounds for cool photos!  You just never know what shots you’ll get and during our session Gloria and Norman also introduced me to Sift, a cupcake store that they often like to visit!   Please enjoy the photos and stay tuned for Gloria and Norman’s wedding day post!

OCEANO HOTEL AND SPA HALF MOON BAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | HEIDI + JASON

Heidi and Jason got married at my favorite venues in the Bay Area – the beautiful Oceano Hotel and Spa in Half Moon Bay.  I am very fortunate to be able to photograph many weddings there every season as their preferred photographer and each time I go back, the photos always turn out amazing.  Heidi and Jason had their ceremony inside the hotel, and chose to take their wedding portraits at Montara Beach, a few miles away from the hotel.  If you have been to Half Moon Bay before, you’ll know that the weather can be somewhat unpredictable and foggy, but on their wedding day, it was super warm and I loved how the photos turned out with the warm yellow glow from the sun reflecting off the beach waves and white sand.  We ended the night with their reception in the main ballroom where everyone danced the night away!  Congratulations again and please enjoy the photos!

PANAMA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | HOTEL RIU | LATIN AMERICA | PABLO + JANNETT

I was absolutely honored when I was asked by Jannett and Pablo to photograph their wedding in the beautiful country of Panama!  This was definitely my first time visiting the country and I was instantly overwhelmed by the people in Panana, their culture, and how warm and friendly they were.  Jannett and Pablo treated me like one of the family and I had a great time getting to know their families and meeting a lot of new Panamanian friends.

Their wedding took place at one of the nicest hotels in Panama – the Hotel Riu and actually started off with them in traditional Chinese attire before heading off to get dressed for the ceremony.  Everything about the wedding was so heartfelt and went perfectly and people in Panama sure know how to party!  I can’t wait to visit Panama again in the future, but in the meantime, please enjoy the photos!

OCEANO HOTEL & SPA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | HALF MOON BAY | STACEE + JEFF

Stacee and Jeff got married at one of my favorite venues in Half Moon Bay – the beautiful Oceano Hotel & Spa.  There are endless possibilities for photos and the weather couldn’t have been nicer there for their ceremony at the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  You could tell that Stacee and Jeff were made for each other and everything went perfectly.  I loved the photo that I captured during the Father Daughter dance where that photo speaks more than a thousand words.

Please enjoy the photos and I can’t wait to go back to the Oceano Hotel again to photography more weddings there!

THOMAS FOGARTY WINERY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | MICHELLE + ADAM

Michelle and Adam got married at Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside California – one of the most beautiful wineries in the Bay Area.  They were both super casual and stress-free when we started our day, but you could tell that everything from Michelle’s gorgeous wedding dress, to the flowers bouquets, and all of the wedding details were elegantly chosen and simply beautiful.  I loved their color theme and it was such a fun wedding to photograph!  They had their ceremony on the hilltop with amazing views of the Bay Area and we even got to into the vineyards for some photos of them before their outdoor reception under the pavilion.

Congratulations and please enjoy the photos!
