  • Stephanie & Ian | New York City Engagement Photography

  • Stephanie and Ian are one of my awesome wedding couples for 2015. And while they'll be getting married here in California (at the Berkeley City Club), they actually currently live in Washington, D.C., and they used to live in New York City together. So it was just great luck that we were all in New [...]
  • Cindy & Joey | San Francisco Engagement Photography

  • Cindy and Joey first met through each of their best friends who had been dating each other for about a year. It didn't take long before Cindy and Joey were inseparable. Some of their earliest dates were at Delfina and the surrounding area in the Mission District of San Francisco, so we returned to t[...]
  • Aakriti & Christian | San Francisco Engagement Photography

  • Aakriti and Chris first met when she interviewed him for a job. It was 9 in the morning and only thing Aakriti was interested in was her coffee. But over the next few months, they got to know each other, and after Chris' constant pursuits, they finally went on a date and never looked back. On a b[...]
  • Kim & Joir-dan | San Francisco Engagement Photography

  • Kim and Joir-dan met in high school, but it was not love at first sight. They annoyed each other and then became friends before they finally started dating in college. They lived all over the United States and spent much of their relationship long-distance from each other. Almost eight years later, [...]
  • Dora & Ken | San Francisco Engagement Photography

  • "I fell in love like you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once." The quote from The Fault in Our Stars perfectly describes how Dora fell for Ken. It took two years of friendship before they began dating, but once they did, everything came together perfectly. And one day on a pier just behind Coqueta[...]
  • Gem & Michael | Stinson Beach Engagement Photography

  • Gem and Michael's engagement session was a blend of all their favorite things: the ocean, the outdoors, dancing, a bit of rock climbing, and of course, each other. We met at Stinson Beach and had the loveliest time playing around against the cadence of the waves. See some favorites below: [...]
  • Dinara & Arjun | Napa Valley Engagement Photography

  • A series of crazy coincidences conspired to set the scene on a beautifully sunny day in Napa for these two to finally meet one another. Unbeknownst to them, they had already had a few missed connections. But once they met, it was as if everything flowed to make up for the lost time. And what better [...]
  • Ninna & Eric | Chicago Engagement Photography

  • What a beautiful Labor Day weekend in Chicago! I was in Chicago for a wedding on Saturday, but of course, we packed in lots of other adventures while we were there, and it was all capped off with this engagement session for my friends Ninna and Eric. We explored some nature-filled areas of Lincoln P[...]
  • Amanda & Todd | San Francisco Travel Portraits

  • I absolutely love this idea: professional portraits on vacation. Amanda and Todd have been married for a couple years and live in a small community in Manitoba, the centermost province of Canada. They run a family grain & bean farm,which always makes their vacations well-earned and much apprecia[...]
  • Ashley & Chad | Napa Valley Engagement Photography

  • Ashley and Chad first met while attending the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, and they became fast friends before they started dating about three years ago. It was only fitting that we return to St. Helena and meet at the wonderful restaurant/tasting room of Farmstead and Long Meadow R[...]
  • Ami & Arjun | San Francisco Engagement Photography

  • Ami and Arjun are simply the sweetest. They both live in Boston, but they are in San Francisco working for the summer. We kicked off their engagement session with portraits around their apartment in the Mission Bay neighborhood, and then we headed over to the Ferry Building for some classic San Fran[...]
