Yay! So exciting to wake up this morning and see my lovely couple’s wedding on Style Me Pretty! SUPER big thanks to all the vendors involved and an even BIGGER thanks to Adie of Twin Town Studios for being my second photographer for the bash. (Springfieldians if you’re looking for fresh and unique photos she’s your gal). Check out the link above for the full feature and let them know your thoughts!
While traveling a few days ago, I had some time to catch up on my favorite reading: Martha Stewart Weddings! How adorable is this scratch-off save the date? So easy, brilliant really, and would be perfect for an invitation as well! Oh MS craft team, how genius you are. See the how-to instructions at the link above.
I’m a little late sharing these images but couldn’t resist showing you some more! Taylor is a glitter fashionista, and I’m over-the-moon excited for her new venture: Glitter Guide! A resource guide for all things polished, poised, refreshingly fun with ultimate lifestyle tips for personal and home. Along with the styling duo of Sitting in a Tree, documentation from Austin Hendrix (see behind the scenes video here) and makeup/hair by Priscilla Francine, we made sequin dreams come true with 3 incredible looks for your inner sparkle ;) Big thanks to Refinery 29 for featuring!

Oh my goodness. This wedding is nothing but whimsy delight. Michelle and Jacob shared their big day with just 15 close family and friends. We started at the magical San Francisco City Hall and continued onto Hayes Valley to enjoy a beautiful lunch at Bar Jules. Fresh and local foods, pretty flowers and lots of romantically quirky details made my heart flutter! I expected nothing less from these creative folks ;) I was more than excited to join them in a photo celebration and you will be too. The end of the post has the most charming wedding announcement in the world! Enjoy! (more…)
Need I say more?! How adorable are these paper bags for a party or wedding favor! I know Whisker Graphics well from their charming and striped Divine Twine. And I’m so excited that they’ve added more packaging goodies for us to all drool over! Be sure to take advantage of this pop-up sale over at 100 Layer Cake to buy all the Whisker Graphics goodies mentioned above.
Hello hello! I feel like it’s been work work and not enough sharing. So I’m extra excited to finally show you one of the several shoots in my production que. Meet the amazingly beautiful Amanda and Joel! I had the pleasure of flying to Springfield, MO to rekindle memories and photograph one of my college friend’s big day! Super sweet, kind, easy-going and playful doesn’t even begin to describe these two. Despite the Midwestern humidity and threat of storms, Amanda and Joel’s celebration went off without a hitch! I had so much fun exploring, ooo’ing over everyone’s gorgeousness and capturing nothing but smiles. Big thanks to my second photographer Adie for all your creativity! Hold on to your seat, there’s a lot to see in this rustic meets elegance sneak peek! (more…)
Amazing typography/font, check. Punch of earthy color, check. Ceramic texture, check. What’s there not to love about Heath’s new ceramic house numbers. I’m sold, obsessed and need. These could be purchased before my first house! I’m also loving the use of ceramic tiles and house numbers as wedding table numbers. See example from one of my weddings here!
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! In this digital age, how many of your have hundreds upon hundreds of images on your computers that have never been printed? Yes that’s what I thought! 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…)
