When Michelle and I began talking about hers and Zach’s engagement photos, she mentioned a location that had redwoods or rolling hills. Living in the East Bay, we have access to some incredible photo locations, so combining both redwoods and rolling hills was possible! An engagement session at Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland, California seemed […]

Engagement Session in Joaquin Miller Park

Geoff grew up in Marin County, so when we were deciding on a location, an Mt. Tam engagement session was a no-brainer! I met Geoff, the groom, back in college when we were both attending CSU, Chico (go Wildcats!). Funny enough, Katelyn, the bride, also went to Chico, but it wasn’t until AFTER we had […]

Christina and Evan are high school sweethearts, and are tying the knot this summer at Hakone Gardens in Saratoga. If their wedding is anything like this session, I might die in photography heaven! This east bay engagement session was stunningly beautiful, and I can only hope these photos do the scenery justice. We met at […]

“Hey guys… want to go take photos? Sunset is in an hour so we need to leave now…” This was me when I looked outside and saw the fiery red sky. I was with Ali Metzger, one of Orange County’s most popular fitness trainer and her boyfriend, after finishing up a fitness and lifestyle shoot […]

They are getting married next year but first wanted to celebrate their engagement, which was a long time coming after so many years together. They were such a fun loving couple – there’s something to be said for two […]
