Gilroy Wedding Photographer // Annemarie & Ben

Annemarie & Ben’s wedding was such a fun celebration. Untraditional seating, a barefoot bride, a groom with a mustache…. Yes please! Annemarie had ordered her stunning dress off Etsy and let me tell you, what a success. It fit her perfectly and the delicate eyelet lace in combination with a low back was just gorgeous, to say the least. And then of course, let’s not forget the cupcake wedding cake! Did you know that Adrian and I had a DIY Rice Crispy Cake for our wedding almost 5 years ago? Well, that’s why I loved their super cute cake! Plus, I may be a little biased, cause the cuppies were delish!

Enjoy ♥

San Francisco Presidio Wedding Photographer // Caitlin & Alex

I always love to travel to the Presidio in San Francisco for sessions. Especially if the couple is dressed in super cute outfits from Banana Republic, has the biggest & warmest smiles and is madly in love. The weather was perfection too (insert squeal!) with the best sunshine California has to offer, a comfy 80 degree Fahrenheit and just about no cloud in sight.

Enjoy Alex & Caitlin’s sweet SF engagement session ♥

PS: Isn’t that the most gorgeous grove? I mean, look how it lights up with the morning sun! Amaze!

Saratoga Country Club Wedding Photographer // Marisa & Daniel

A girl that has sparkly Kate Spade heels and a Daisy perfume by Marc Jacobs is my kind of girl. Marisa did such a great job selecting all the beautiful bridal details and I had a blast styling and photographing them. The ceremony was touching. Once again was I happy to have a camera to hide behind… Yes, I totally teared up when I saw the beautiful bride walk down on her daddy’s arm!

My favorite moment however was the ride from the church to the reception venue. Marisa & Daniel had me join just them two and it was so great to be part of this special moment and capture it for everyone to see. Well, now go and enjoy their lovely wedding day story ♥

Wedding Photography Album

The wedding album, next to the actual photos, is the single most tangible thing that will tell the stories and special moments long after the big day has passed. It will be the keepsake that generations after you get to enjoy. Did you ever find this really old, black and white photo of your grandparents getting married? Maybe it was in a stinky old shoebox hidden in a corner of the attic and the edges were already yellow. When you looked at it, did you wish there were more photos that told their unique story? Photos that would let you dive right into a different time? That’s why nowadays we do wedding albums!

I found this new amazing album company that I’m SO excited to share with my clients! Their albums are perfection pure with a large array of album cover choices of highest quality. Japanese silks, pure linens and Italian leathers – just to name a few… Oh, they’re so gorgeous!! Take a looksie ♥
