2013 brought so many amazing events and changes to my life: The continued success of my photography business, a great year keeping bees, meeting and collaborating fantastic colleagues, and of course, the birth of my baby daughter. Is it any wonder that 2014 would be any different? I think not!
I am thrilled to announce I’ve moved into a beautiful studio in San Francisco. I am still in the process of framing up new work for the walls, but when they’re up, I’ll snap a few images to let you see 🙂 Until then…
Here’s wishing everyone an amazing 2014! And if you’re thinking of booking a wedding for 2014 – don’t hesitate – weekends are filling up quickly!
A fine summer’s day blessed Manny and Kristina’s wedding. The light was gorgeous and everyone was all smiles. It doesn’t get better than that! I’m light on the words today because I have to get out the door, but I wanted to post the images before the weekend is here. Enjoy!

In the editing cave, my iPhone is rocking out to whatever Pandora deems a proper genre-specific song. I close the curtains to block out the hot sun that filters through the double doors leading to my garden, and bury my head to edit. As I go through the photos, I’ll laugh and giggle about the funny times and quiet moments that I spent with the bride and groom. I’ll get all sappy when it comes to the ceremony. And when I get to the cake part of things, I get hungry and leave for a break in the kitchen. Going through Kristen and Ryan’s wedding was no exception. The mood was light and fluffy. Nothing could go wrong. Well, nothing that we couldn’t fix anyway. We had a serious bow-tie incident in which we managed a work around, we found the lost button mixed within the grass and flowers, and the table cloth had dried out sufficiently. We were on fire. And that perfection carried right on through the ceremony, as the passion they share for each other was easily recognizable and conquered all. I loved every minute of it, because real love was in the air. It was palpable, honest, and forthcoming – and nothing says love like a groom getting all teary-eyed – but you’ll have to head in to see more of that. But oh what a day…

Met Shannon and Joe downtown. Joe was having a beer to ‘calm the nerves’ as it were. Once again, I heard the old,
“Oh, we don’t photograph well,” line. Yeah yeah. That’s like telling me I can’t do it, and you know, that’s only going to make me try harder 🙂 So with a beer in the belly and our light fading fast, we got to it. So should you. Get to looking at these photos!
Starting out with a great view of the city.
