Monica & Rachel

Not one, but two beautiful beach brides had a heartwarming wedding, and then hit the dance floor with a great group of friends and family. Asilomar Beach and Asilomar Conference Grounds served as a wonderful backdrop. It was an honor for me to be there and witness the wedding of these two gorgeous and special ladies.

Adorable Cale

In fact, the whole family is adorable! The evening, and the time we spent together taking photos at Point Lobos was just as lovely as it looks.

Hanah & Jaden

The portrait session was romantic because the couple is, and so is their story. Hanah and Jaden met in Korea as children. Hanah had a crush on Jaden back then, which he never knew. Flash forward many years, Hanah was in town attending MIIS and Jaden was in the area on business. They reconnected and fell in love. They will be getting married later this year in Korea, but wanted to take some wedding-like engagement photos in all the special places here where their loved had bloomed. Now, beyond this incredible story, they are two wonderful individuals; so beautiful, gracious, and fun. Even to me, it was all a little like a dream.

Tianna & Richie

Beautiful (no, stunning!), smart, athletic, sincere, loyal, and devoted are just some of the words I would use to describe Tianna and Richie as individuals, and as a couple. Their wedding at Deer Park Villa in Fairfax, on a warm summer day, was a delight, including a traditional Samoan money dance. Amazing friends, wonderful extended family, a happy couple and nothing but blue skies ahead. I also would like to give a special thanks to my second shooter at this wedding, Tara Benson. Her images are noted below.
