Rosa + Todd | Love and Starwars at Ellington Hall in Santa Rosa

Wedding

When you look for a wedding photographer it’s best to look for someone who really strives for a unique style that you connect with. I was very proud to be hired by Rosa and Todd based on my personal style. Having a couple really identify with your style makes doing my job even more fun than it already is. After chatting with them about their ideas for their vintage wedding in Santa Rosa, I knew that we had made a great choice to work with each other.

After dating for several years eventually Todd took fatherhood of Rosa’s wonderful little daughter. Finally he couple felt it was time to tie the knot! Shooting their family and Golden Gate Bridge engagement photos, I got to know them. Turns out they are freaking awesome. Actually, I have to admit that before them I had never seen Star Wars.  After that day in San Francisco and hearing was huge fans they were I finally decided to binge out on all of the films. Having awesome clients clearly have great effects on you.

There was a great mix of family, vintage, and of course, a little bit of nerdy Star Wars goodness. Their venue was located in Santa Rosa at the Ellington Hall. What was so nice about the venue was the closeness of the ceremony and the reception;. The well laid out hall made moving to each event of the wedding seamless and smooth. Not to mention, they have an amazing system set up for the dancing at night! They even had a whole room set up for kids featuring a bounce house! After all of the big parts of the reception done, the party kicked off for the rest of the night with light lasers, a fog machine, a snow machine and lots of loud music to people dancing on that floor till the night was over.

Thank you so much, Dana and Todd for letting me document your awesome day!

Vanessa + Aaron | Seaside Colorful Wedding in Pacific Grove
When I found out that Vanessa and Aaron booked the Asilomar Conference Ground in Pacific Grove as their venue I of course immediately looked online to get an idea. I was not disappointed. The images I found where beautiful and I knew that any venue walking distance from the beautiful beaches of California is going to be amazing. I’ve said before that having a personal relationship with your client is integral to making sure they get amazing photos. I think as a photographer it’s of course about observing; watching the world as it happens and documenting. But weddings are far more intimate in their closeness of the family, the new connections ...

Liz + Danny | A rustic Barn wedding at the Double T
I had the pleasure of meeting Liz and Danny at the Double T in Stevinson, California for their engagement session and I was blown away at the amazing venue they chose. Like a living, breathing museum the Double T has a mix of amazing old Western streets and old west locomotives and carriages. With them being such a cute couple along with an amazing backdrop, it wasn't hard at all to get some great photos that day and get ready for their wedding a few months down the line. Being a mix of creative-do it yourself types along with sports fans, Liz and Danny's rustic country barn wedding had a ton of great details along with charm that fit with ...
