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.

My little friend, Ellie, spotted me from across the courtyard one Sunday morning and just about lost it. She made eye contact and made a b-line for me. She let out a big ole scream, "AAAAANGELAAAAA!!!" and slammed into…

Bay Area Designer | Turlock Wedding: Wedding Save-The-Date & Invitation

One of my absolute favorite things to design is wedding materials. I get so dang excited when I'm asked to design a custom save-the-date or an incredible wedding invitation and program. It's totally my style—romantic, sweet and creative. I adore this invitation I put together with for the amazing bride, Carissa (a.k.a. Mrs. Groen!).

Carissa and I met at our university...
