Hello hello! My trip to Missouri felt crazy quick! I flew out to photograph a modern meets rustic kinda wedding and visited with old friends and family. And you know I can’t just visit friends and family without snapping a few photos. Remember the Polar Pop-Up Potluck baby shower I planned for our dear friends Natalie and Jeff? Their first little Kiwi was born just about a month ago – meet Pippa! She’s a teeny little one that loves to cuddle and snuggle. My heart tingles when I have the opportunity to photograph stills in time for the people I love. At just one month, she’s already athletic (see the next image!), a genius and the prettiest lady in town. (more…)
Hello Hello! Excited to announce that I have a new and fun little photo product! Introducing wedding and parent brag folios!

Brag folios can serve as your wedding keepsake or an additional goodie to your album to have around the home. Super classy, modern and custom handcrafted right here in San Francisco. More details… (more…)
Whoo hoo it’s Friday! Perfect day to be featured on 100 Layer Cake for a Kate Spade inspired photo shoot of San Francisco event designers Sitting in a Tree Events and Enjoy Events Co.! The lovely ladies played, partied and planned at the amazing space of The Collection Event Studio located in Sonoma (one stop shop for all things weddings). I love the Bay Area for it’s collaborative feel in the wedding industry. Sometimes industry egos fly and competitive streaks take over…but not here! I’m such an advocate of sharing, referring and hiring wedding planners, wink wink! So visit here to see the Q&A and here to view the behind the scenes video from Austin Hendrix Productions. (more…)
I first spotted these charming drinking jars at The Collection Event Studio in Sonoma, and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since! Why it’s taken me so long to chat about ACME Party Boxes…well I don’t know, but it’s quite genius! Their mission is to give party-throwers a sustainable, reusable and fair way to throw a party (“Parties good, Trash bad!”) whether it be for kids or adults. I’m in love with their concept and even more in love with their products. You’ll find options for favors, tableware, bunting, linens, lighting and centerpieces all for kids and adult parties! Yay for another Bay Area business doing us proud ;)
Did you miss me?! Hehe, I’m back in San Francisco from a successful week of photographing more custom stationery for Cheree Berry Paper’s new website (coming in a few months). And we had the pleasure of having some of the wedding invitation images from the last two photo shoots featured on 100 Layer Cake the same week! If you missed it, see them here!
I’m traveling to St. Louis today for another stationery photo shoot for Cheree Berry Paper. Posts will be on the light side this week, but I hope you’ll follow the photo shoot fun via Instagram and Twitter! While you wait for me to come back to San Francisco…enjoy these fabulously yummy images for Hotel Vitale’s stylish and cozy restaurant Americano. It was a quick shoot for Americano’s website to highlight how pleasant their outdoor patio space is while you drink their delicious signature cocktails and eat their fresh food. Yum! (more…)

In support of wedding event designers, photographers and other vendors – the studio functions as a vibrant inspiring space with a boutique appeal.

Goodbye flags and hello fringe! Loving the textures and concepts of the parties using fringe. The perfect way to add a playful vibe to your party or wedding decor. Hang it, drape it, wrap it, cover it – the options are endless. Be sure to visit the the links above…Jordan has a diy crepe paper fringe tutorial!
It’s the one detail that isn’t thought of much but can be a game changer in the decor details department on your big day…to wrap your bouquet or not? I’m loving both wrapped and not (long stem bouquets), however, when a unique material is used or pretty brooch/pin is added it just adds a little bit more pretty to the flowers. I’ve had brides that pinned their family’s brooch or jewelry to carry something old, so sweet! Do you have any favorite materials or bouquet decor ideas?
