Ursula + Arash: The Wedding at the Marin Art and Garden Center

August 06, 2018

The Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross is a stunning location for any event. Ursula and Arash's wedding was such a gorgeous day. We could not stop photographing the beautiful details, the delightful guests and of course the incandescently happy couple. Their ceremony took place inside a circle of their closest friends and family. It was a wonderful way to do it. There was so much care and love and support in that group.  This was followed by a Persian Ceremony which was a new visual feast for us. After that this group was all laughter, dancing and lawn games. They really took the lawn games seriously. Ursula and Arash are so in tune with one another that they often seemed to be speaking without words. Ursula's best friend gave the most beautiful speech about their marriage as a series of tastes and spices. I had everyone, including us in tears. It is so good to see so many communities that support each other while we are working. We wish them all a lifetime of happiness and love.

East Bay Family Portrait

July 23, 2018

Let me start by saying how much I love this couple. They were one of our first clients when we started. We met them at Sea Ranch for a destination wedding ceremony. They complement one another so well. it has been a pleasure to watch them grow their family over the years. Their children are bright and lovely beings who will probably change the world for the better one day. I am honored to know all of them. Here are some images from a session we did a little while ago to welcome their newest member.

Lisa and Nick at San Francisco City Hall

July 20, 2018

I had the good luck to photograph a weekday ceremony at San Francisco City Hall for this beautiful jet-setting couple. They have family here but will have their wedding reception in Australia later this year. If the beautiful bride looks familiar it's because she was a bridemaid in another of our weddings from February. I was immediately drawn in to their very happy sense of fun and adventure. Their family and friends came and enveloped them in love and support. I'm pretty sure that not one full minute passed while I was with them without someone bursting into joyful peals of laughter.  I hope that we cross paths again, with the way these two travel the earth I have a feeling that we will. Congratulations Lisa and Nick!

Marissa+James: The Wedding at Old Mill Park

May 26, 2018

From the very first meeting this year at Brienne and Adams' wedding getting to know Marissa and James has been a wonderful part of our job. The engagement session was very windy and cold but this happy couple were so in love that the weather didn't even seem to touch them. Their wedding day was such a good blend of tradition and casual, light fun. I also really enjoyed the mix of accents. That's right, I said accents. The families came from all over the world but primarily from Scotland and Peru. Despite the distance it was very clear to Bryan and I how very close James' family is. Marissa was an absolutely gorgeous bride but that wasn't surprising since she is a beautiful human as well. Her brother was the officiant and he put together a beautiful and funny ceremony at Old Mill Park. The reception was held at The Mill Valley Community Center where the guests were able to eat wonderful food and dance late into the night.

Holi 2018 at Bishop Ranch

May 23, 2018

One of our absolute favorite events all year is hands down the Holi celebration held at Bishop Ranch. It is free to the public and is such a joyful celebration that I highly suggest you go next year to ring in Spring. We really love working for Bishop Ranch in San Ramon. They put on so many wonderful events that are free to the public. Everything about this day was wonderfully vibrant. We can't wait to see them again next year.
