Stanford Memorial Church Wedding | Nan + Aaron

Stanford Memorial Church is without a doubt one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Northern California. I had the privilege of joining two kind, dedicated, and simply wonderful people in Nan and Aaron for their wedding ceremony at Stanford, followed by a wedding reception at the University Club of Palo Alto. The cherry blossoms of Spring were in full bloom, making for an absolutely gorgeous setting!

Farmstead Restaurant & Stag’s Leap Winery Wedding | Jeff + Emma

Jeff and Emma’s beautiful wine country wedding was the epitome of class, sophistication, and a relaxed good time. Bringing a solid Canadian contingent to Napa, the pair started with a photoshoot and some time on the grounds of the Stag’s Leap Winery private estate nestled in the back roads of Napa. We then drove up to St Helena for the main event at the Farmstead Restaurant at Long Meadow Ranch. Farmstead, as the name implies, specializes in farm-to-table fresh and delicious food, and the wedding fare certainly didn’t disappoint. It was a special evening with open campfires and s’mores crackling late into the night.

Shakespeare Garden Golden Gate Park Wedding | Amanda + Josh

Amanda and Josh were married at the Shakespeare Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The spring flowers were blooming, it was a beautiful warm day and we got to use some of the amazing museums and monuments around the area for some great photos as well. The day started with a traditional tea ceremony at Josh’s restaurant Saison, then and finished at the Grand Palace Seafood Restaurant in South San Francisco for a traditional Chinese seafood wedding dinner.

Youskay + Saya | Rosewood Hotel, Palo Alto

I met with Youskay and Saya at the Rosewood Sand Hill Hotel in Palo Alto for an engagement shoot. The pair are both doctors in Japan, but were passing through the Bay Area on their honeymoon. Youskay had done some medical work at Stanford in the past, and was particularly excited about coming back and showing off some of his past favorite spots to his new wife. We started at the spectacular luxury hotel and then headed into the foothills for some beautiful outdoor shots, and were treated with a gorgeous moonrise that I was able to work into some of their photos.

Cappadocia, Turkey | Voyager Balloon Company

Cappadocia Turkey is one of the most beautiful places I have seen, known as the hot air balloon capital of the world. I had the privileged of taking some advertising photos for the fabulous Voyager Balloon Company, based out of the small town of Göreme. Each morning hundreds of balloons rise up into the sunrise and float above the mystical canyon spires to take in the history and natural beauty from above.

    Noah, we’re so jealous! We were in Turkey for xmas and our balloon trip in Cappadocia was thwarted by incredibly thick fog. We’ll just have to admire your beautiful photos.
