Robert and Hillary’s gorgeous beachfront wedding at the private St Malo community in Oceanside, CA just north of San Diego was an event for the ages. A stunning red sunset, glittering lights over a residential tree lined cul de sac turned reception site, and a whole string of homes from the couple’s family and friends that opened their doors to welcome the wedding guests for this amazing event.

I photographed Brian and Megan’s wedding almost 5 years ago to the day, and now had the privilege of coming back to shoot some photos of the new addition to their family Luca. He was a floppy, rambunctious, hungry, 9 day old little bundle of joy that I had so much fun working with. Infant and baby photography is a whole new genre that I don’t do often, but for past wedding clients it’s really wonderful to reconnect.

    Very beautifull portraits! Congratulations!!!

Lisa and John hosted a lovely intimate wedding ceremony at Muir Woods last month. Just a 30 minute drive from San Francisco, Muir Woods boasts a towering grove of redwood trees, and once the hordes of tourist busses head out at 4pm, it provides a magical and quite natural escape perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony. The pair finished off their day with a reception at the Pelican Inn just down the road.Muir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingMuir Woods weddingPelican Inn Muir Beach wedding receptionPelican Inn Muir Beach wedding receptionPelican Inn Muir Beach wedding reception

    Wonderful landscape with happy and joy bride and groom

After living in the Bay Area for the past 14 years, it was certainly time to get out and discover the beautiful Angel Island just offshore. A quick 40 minute ferry ride from the Ferry Building in San Francisco, Angel Island has a huge swath of hiking trails, eucalyptus forests and some stunning views of of the San Francisco skyline as well as the Tiburon and Sausalito area. Jen and Ryan wanted to do something special so we set up an engagement shoot on the island. It’s usually blocked off from commercial photography but Jen has some nice connections so we were able to make it happen for some extra special images that you just can’t get anywhere else in the Bay Area. There was a fair amount of hiking involved getting around the island, but 25,000 steps later on my pedometer we had some fantastic images and an even better adventure to show for it.

I wandered along the San Francisco waterfront with Alex and Angie for their engagement shoot. We took some photos along the Embarcadero area next to the Cupid’s Span sculpture with the symbolic bow and arrow backlit by the sunset and the city skyscrapers, as well as a unique view of the Bay Bridge that I’ve never photographed before. We then went to Crissy Field for some classic shots of the Golden Gate Bridge that Alex really wanted for the couple’s wedding day portfolio. Some great photos from the day with a fun and beautiful couple making the work rather easy for me.

Natalia and Kendall had a beautiful sun filled wedding at the Campovida Winery Estate in far flung but beautiful Hopland, California. With a combination of acres of vines and a luscious garden complex for the ceremony and reception it was truly a magnificent affair with the “close to nature” feel that embodies a true California wedding for me. Natalie and Kendall couldn’t have been a nicer power couple, gracious, fun loving and totally at ease with one another. Natalie took a break from ultra marathon running and Emergency Medicine, while Kendall put away his own running shoes and business suit to relax and enjoy a beautiful day with their guests in this fun filled affair amidst the grapes and under a warm starry night sky.

Just back from a great dive trip to the Revillagigedo Islands, also called the Socorro Islands. Hundreds of miles south of the Baja peninsula, blue pacific waters bring in some of the most amazing pelagic animals that you can see underwater. Diving with sharks, manta, whales, dolphins was an incredible treat.
