Chris and Kelly were married at the Marines Memorial Club and Hotel in San Francisco’s Union Square over this past Christmas holiday. It was a rainy day to start, though luckily the wedding was all in the cozy indoor hotel space with Christmas trees and lights in abundance for a magical experience and some wonderful photo opportunities.

This past week I had the change to meet up with past wedding client Jess Dang for some fun food photography in support of her startup business CookSmarts. This cool business is basically a meal planning service. No more wandering to the grocery store without a plan or trying the same old recipes over and over. It’s a great way to eat fresh, healthy and creatively. But of course with any web business, you need some great photos for advertising- so off we went to the kitchen! Below are just a few images, some for website headers, email and blog post images and more. Jess has a new extensive online cooking class that’s about to be up and running so stay tuned!

It’s been great fun to stay in touch with past clients and work on new business ventures. Jess has a great thing going. I’m also working in telemedicine with past client Dave (Dave and Uyen) with his company Direct Dermatology- a fun chance to combine my photography and medicine backgrounds and explore new opportunities outside of the world of wedding photography.

Stanford University is an expansive and beautiful campus that I remember well from my college days, but keeps on evolving with more photographic (and educational) opportunities every time I return. Lindsay is at Stanford for medical school, with her fiance Brian holding down the fort outside of the medical arena. Lindsay brought her beloved horse to school with her, so we had to go to the Stanford barn and bring the horse into some of the photos as well.

I met Vimal and Lena in the crafts village of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini for a portrait shoot. The couple is front India, living in Switzerland, working for a Palo Alto Tech company. With that connection in hand to start things off we met at the break of dawn at the end of the island to capture the spectacular low light glancing off the blue domed churches, and had the whole area to ourselves before the shops and tourists started to bustle about.

    gorgeous! wow!

Another post in the “epic adventure” theme, from my last scuba diving vacation out to Palau. I’ve long been an avid scuba diver and when combined with my professional photography business a foray into the field of underwater photography is always a wonderful and highly entertaining (if slightly frustrating) creative enterprise. I spent 2 weeks with family diving the warm waters of the Palauan reefs, known for some of the very best diving in the world. Strong currents from deep water bring lots of nutrients into these small island dots out in the pacific, along with manta rays, sharks, and an innumerable amount of other life both large and small. My favorite may have been Jellyfish Lake, where millions of jellyfish have been isolated from the open ocean in an enclosed lake long enough to have lost most of their singing capabilities allowing you to swim among them in what is truly a magical experience.

It’s always an honor when another professional photographer asks me to work with them. Meagan is a talented photographer from the Philadelphia area who was traveling through the Bay Area with her wonderful new fiance James. We headed out around the Golden Gate Park area of San Francisco before heading down to the water at Chrissy Field and then the Embarcadero area with the city lights twinkling behind us.

Tony and Janine were married at the beautiful Healdsburg Country Gardens, a quaint piece of paradise nestled about vineyards in California’s wine country. We were blessed with the first summer rainstorm of my memory, which everyone took in stride and good humor, en route to a wonderful rainbow and an ebullient and authentic evening full of family, fun and laughter.
