I’ve had the honor of photographing a lot of weddings on the San Francisco Bay. The view from the Hornblower yachts is unmatched and breathtaking! Last weekend, I photographed the wedding of Fidelis and Scott aboard the Empress Hornblower. Congratulations, Fidelis & Scott! That’s a CHEESECAKE wedding cake!! Yum 🙂 Scott is a professional umpire […]

On a crisp July evening, I met up with Caitlin and Greg near their home in San Francisco. We meandered up the hill to Coit Tower and then drove down to China Beach for sunset. We had a beautiful evening making these sweet images. I can’t wait for the wedding later this month!

Burning Man weddings are a sensory explosion of color and expression. I have had the honor of photographing several and I gotta say I LOVE them! I had photographed Kim and Aaron’s official wedding in Mendocino just a couple of weeks prior to Burning Man 2018. They have a special ceremony on the playa and […]

Katie and Matt held their wedding on a beautiful (hot) day under the big skies of Chico California. The ceremony and reception were at a very large private home with a huge back yard and lovely grounds where the guests could wander and play.

Marriage proposals are so much fun to photograph. I get to hide out or pose as a tourist so I can capture candid images of the magical moment. I just photographed Matt’s proposal to Michelle at the beautiful Chateau Saint Jean in Kenwood, California – in the heart of wine country. Matt made an elaborate […]

We chose to meet at Angele on the Napa Riverwalk which turned out to be a great location for the engagement photos. We had a great time cruising up and down the Riverwalk, photographing in its many […]

Set in the Napa Valley, the V Foundation Wine Celebration brings together people from the investment community, technology, medical, sports, entertainment and wine worlds to raise money for the fight against cancer. I shot the setup for The Lux Productions who designed […]

As a Marin wedding photographer, I get to photograph some amazing locations. We have these incredible gems like Old Saint Hilary’s Chapel in Tiburon where Dusty and Patrick were married last weekend. The grounds around the church are beautiful with old stone walkways and steps. The inside of the chapel has beautiful diffused light and […]

I photographed the investiture ceremony of the Order of Malta at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland. This church is jaw-dropping. The Cathedral of Christ the Light, also called Oakland Cathedral, is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Oakland in Oakland, California. It is the seat of the Bishop of Oakland.

Claire’s Bat Mitzvah was an explosion of fun for Claire, her friends, and her family. It was truly an honor to be part of this momentous occasion! The service was held at Rodef Sholom in San Rafael, California. This beautiful temple is the location of many mitzvahs throughout the year. Claire pretends that she doesn’t […]
