Stephanie & Andrew // Gilroy Lodge on the Hill Black Tie Wedding

Married, they are!

Everything had been leading up to this moment. Over a year’s worth of planning. A full black tie affair for the guests. Everyone was ready. Bridesmaids and groomsmen all lined up. Andrew with his arm wrapped around his little girl, Emma. With her daddy’s arm holding her close, Emma had been waiting and…

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…

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…

wonder.

For the last seven days or so, the word wonder has been on my heart. Last week, I spent a day in Carmel with my mama. Carmel is home to the the most cerulean of seas, whitest sands and sweeping views for miles and miles. The minute we pull up to Ocean Street, the windows go down and my lungs fill with fresh, ocean mist. I revel at…

Stefanie + Jeremy // San Jose Municipal Rose Garden Engagement Session

It didn't take long for Stefanie and I to become best friends. The moment she and Jeremy arrived for their San Jose Municipal Rose Garden Engagement Session, I was over the top excited! They showed up dressed for Vogue (which is a weird word, don't you think?) and came prepared with two stunning and…

The other night I was sitting on my couch in my little Morgan Hill apartment (you know, doing the adult thing and watching Netflix all night) and I hopped on the interwebs and just started looking at pictures of puppies. It didn't take long for me to just happen to accidentally search for puppies for sale on Craigslist. Before I knew it, I fell in love with…

Hipster overload right now.

Ricky&Rachel moved out to Morgan Hill in August from Tulsa, OK. Though Ricky is originally from this area, he moved back with his gorgeous wife, Rachel, and their adorable baby girl, Charley Rose. When I first met them, we were...

shelly + jonathan // redwood retreat wedding

The week leading up to October 15, 2016, was certainly a week of thinking on our feet. With just days before the wedding, so many last minute hurdles kept popping up... including something completely out of our control.

The rain.

Somehow, every little piece came together. God worked every detail into something more beautiful than the bride and groom could have imagined. When the day finally came…

When I think of a Christ-centered family, the Verdons automatically come to mind. Shani, the beautiful mother in these photos, started working at our church more than a year ago now (WOW), and I was honestly a little intimidated at first. She seemed so...

jenn + ryan // coyote creek engagement session

There's a sweet spot on this trail I've never heard of and almost couldn't find that made for a perfect location for this engagement session. Coyote Creek Trail is a 15-mile path that goes all the way to San Jose. And along...
