Allied Arts Guild Wedding Story On Maria and Mike's wedding day, my team and the awesome video guys of Inspired By Studio arrived together. When walked in to Maria's parents' home we found the getting ready in full swing, everything a-bustle with energy. Maria's family members...

River Sessions I should really call this session with Tallie something different than boudoir photos, but there's really not a concise name for - gorgeous woman in the river photos, yet, so even though there is not a boudoir or room of any sort to be...

It was fun to be back on my home turf for Cassie and Keith's Palo Alto engagement shoot. We started downtown Palo Alto, at a coffee shop where they had their first date. I loved the idea of going back to where it all started,...

I first encountered Kristine and Desmond as guests at Arianne and Marcel's wedding in Tahoe a couple years ago. When we met I instantly recognized them from dance floor photos I had taken :). Now it's their turn to get married, and it's been so...

(All maternity milk bath and flower bath sessions are done at my home studio in San Jose, California). Ever since I first started doing flower bath / milk bath maternity sessions, I've been wondering if I'd be able to fit (and photograph well) an expecting...

The Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga is one of the grandest locations in the south bay. Comprised of hiking trails, formal gardens, a park, an arts center, and the Villa Montalvo mansion, it is a photographer's paradise. So, of course, I was super excited when...

My last wedding of the year was every bit as spectacular as one might hope. Not only because Nestldown is one of my favorite places to shoot - and it was looking especially lovely on that fall day - and not only because the beautiful...

Oh, I am so stoked to share Celia and JImmy's wedding at Leal Vineyards! It was such a beautiful and emotional day. First thing in the morning, Hok and I arrived at Jimmy's parents' house for the tea ceremony festivities. Family members met and greeted...

For Tori and Anthony's engagement shoot we ventured over to Henry Cowell State Park in Santa Cruz (well, technically, Felton, but close enough). I know it seems like this is the only place I do engagement shoots, but I swear it isn't! It's just a...

On Sandrine and Josh's wedding day, Annie (my second photographer that day) and I showed up to Sandrine's family's home to get some details and shots of her and her family getting ready. When we showed up, it was so relaxed - no mayhem of...
