Elizabeth Marie // Gilroy Newborn Session

Elizabeth Marie // Gilroy Newborn Session

As photographers, our job is fundamentally intimate. The moments we get to be a part of with our cameras is truly extraordinary—from the first kiss as husband and wife to an amorous embrace between fiancés, from maternity moments between parents-to-be to the first several hours of a baby’s life. It is a privilege and a responsibility we take seriously to capture these brief seasons of deep, unfathomable love between humans. To preserve the…

Shelley & Austin // The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay Engagement Session

It was ten years ago. In San Luis Obispo. He was about to graduate. She had one year left. Shelley and Austin found each other right before life led them to different places. A few years of long distance later, they reunited on the Peninsula, eventually moving into a cute little house together in San Mateo. These Bay Area cuties have shared a…

Loren & Alex // Legion of Honor Baker Beach San Francisco Engagement Session

an absolute dream

San Francisco is quite a special city to so many people. It’s particularly special for Michael—his dad used to commute from the East Bay into the city and would sometimes bring Michael along for the ride. Every time we pull over the hills of 280 and see the first signs of South San Francisco, Michael’s eyes light up like a little kid against the glass at a toy store. The iconic skyline with that…

Jake & Danica // Kelley Park San Jose Engagement Session

Jake & Danica // Kelley Park San Jose Engagement Session

happenstance.

It started in college. Two dorky kids. West Valley and UOP. It just so happened Danica made friends with a couple of guys from Morgan Hill Bible Church at West Valley Community College in Saratoga. These guys were leaders at MHBC’s Young Adults group where Jake had been going for awhile. One afternoon, the guys invited Danica to come check out our little group, and the day she came was the day that brought these two together. And it led to this stunning…

Friday Introductions ♥️

Friday Introductions ♥️

Happy Friday, everyone!

This has been both a restful and hectic week at the same time. Is that a thing? Do any other wedding photographers with full time day gigs ever feel that way? Does anyone else ever feel that way? Maybe it’s just us? 😬

Well we thought today we’d share a little bit more about us with you! We love…

Wine Tasting // Livermore Wine Trail

Wine Tasting // Livermore Wine Trail

Rolling green hills with acres and acres of fresh grapes tended by winemakers with the utmost care. Sunshine on a windy day sweeping the smell of barbecue and fresh air through doors and windows. Semi urban landscapes planted right in the middle of…

Jeremy + Christa // Big Sur Portrait Session

breathtaking.

Can you believe that until Jeremy & Christa’s Big Sur Portrait Session, I had never been south of Carmel? All this time I’ve lived by the coast and never did I venture south past those luscious cerulean waters of Clint Eastwood’s town. And even then, I hadn’t been to Carmel until just a few years ago. WHAT? Right?

Michael and I left early knowing it would be…

Megan + Danny // Christmas Hill Park Maternity Session

legacy.

Did you know that right now you are currently in the middle of a story that will be passed down to your children and your children’s children? Think about where you are at this moment and all the moments that led up to this one. That one moment in third grade when you confessed to your crush. Those awkward teenage years in middle school and high school. The stress of applying to colleges and filling out tedious job applications. Last weekend when you…

Mary Catherine // Morgan Hill Newborn Session

new.

There’s a lot of talk right now about the idea of new. Freshening up your life by decluttering not just your old sock drawer but also your mental file cabinets and dusty cobwebs in the back of that mind of yours. I’ve been hearing a lot about that new Netflix show, Tidying Up, and I have to admit I haven’t started it yet, but…
