I have no idea how I missed blogging this family. Cristin is pretty much the coolest girl in school and I am so lucky our paths crossed years ago. She is an amazing photographer (check her out here!) and I have had the absolute pleasure of photographing her family for a handful of years. I’ve gotten to meet her before kids, pregnant with two beautiful daughters, a newborn session, a family session…I was worried when she talked about moving out of state last year, but they bought a house in the Bay and now she is stuck with me forever! I love their spirit, their family vibe, everything about this crew is fun and fabulous. They were mid renovation on their new home and she decided she wanted her yearly photo session in the midst of the chaos of moving and construction. On a side note, her house now is amazing and styled to perfection (as always).

Here is hopefully years and years of friendship and photography!

Stacey and James were referred to me by one of my brides (the cute little matron of honor), and it was truly an honor to be there to document their intimate San Francisco City Hall Wedding. There was no need for a big reception or large guest list. These two only needed their families present to tie the knot. They choose City Hall as their venue after looking around at other courthouse style locations and you just cannot beat the gorgeous architecture and beauty surrounding the ceremony here. I absolutely love shooting smaller weddings and this amazing building really makes everything elegant, timeless, and gives such variety for portraits.

Stacey was a vision in her gown and I can’t get over how these two looked at each other all afternoon. I wish Stacey and James the very best in their lives together! Congratulations!

Ashley and Vadim both have large families and their celebration was all about family. From their matron of honor’s husband offering his videographer services, to the many tears, prayers, hugs, and apparent love, their families are everything to them. Vadim’s niece and Ashley’s sister both shared beautifully touching songs during the reception, which brought the guests to tears (including myself!). Vadim’s parents shared a traditional prayer during the wedding ceremony and Ashley’s family spent the day laughing with her and being present. Ashley and Vadim opted for a first look, where we wrapped up all of their bridal party and most family photos. After the ceremony we sent them to their cocktail hour, where they were able to fully enjoy themselves with their guests. At sunset we snuck out for a few portraits in golden light (my California-girl favorite light) and back to their first dances.

Their celebration, at Wilson Vineyards in Clarksburg, was really personal, with perfect weather and even better company. Everything about their day was special to them and there’s nothing better than making the day their own.

Many thanks to this beautiful couple for having me photograph their day. I wish you both the very best in your new life together!
