Nicole & Frankie’s intimate city hall wedding was absolute perfection! With a total guest list of 11 adults & one adorable nephew, the pair had all the wanted and more for their celebration. After traveling into the city from LA, they must have brought the LA sunshine with them because after 3 days straight of pouring rain, San Francisco was sunny & perfect the whole day of their wedding & ended with one of the most beautiful pink sunsets I’ve seen here!
Nicole & Frankie opted for the traditional first look – down the aisle & boy was that special! Nicole’s face was full of delight & happiness and Frankie was the sweetest bucket of tears ever. After snapping some photos around the breathtaking city hall building, we caught the sunset on the rooftop of the nearby Proper Hotel, where they & the family were staying and enjoyed an intimate dinner at none-other-than Leo’s Oyster Bar, which was the perfect tropical nod to the fact that the pair met in South Beach, Miami. I loved every second of this day & am so thrilled to share the images with you!

Is there anything better than a Fall wedding in Napa County? Well besides being one of the best looking couples ever, Danielle & Tyler are super sweet and have a fantastic story. They met 5 years ago at a bar (gotta love that old school courage) called Lightning right after they both moved to SF. Tyler proposed in Marin Headlands and the guy even had a bottle of Veuve waiting to celebrate the moment. Peek HERE for their super cute engagement photos! They love to travel, to cook together and do anything active and outdoors – they really are the perfect “dream team” of a bride & groom. They alluded to this with their wedding hashtag #DoremTeam2018 (a word play on Tyler’s last name, Doremus).
Danielle & Tyler’s stunning wedding took place at Solage Resort in Calistoga, CA near where Danielle grew up in Napa. She looked flawless in her Flora Bridal Gown and Tyler looked so suave in his emerald green suit jacket and velvet loafers. The vendor team was incredible and created a natural vibe with tons of wow-factor in the decor. The decor included Danielle’s cascading bridal bouquet with pink garden roses and evergreen accents throughout. Danielle’s sister was her maid of honor and she was surrounded by her dearest gal pals and Tyler’s groomsmen consisted of his 4 brothers & dad [I’m not kidding! There are a lot of Doremus men!] Everyone danced the night away to the tunes of a live band!
Since that day, the incredibly inspiring wedding blog, Style Me Pretty, published this wedding on it’s front page! I was in tears reading the email that my submission had been accepted & floored that they were so excited to feature my work. SMP has inspired me and driven me to be a better photographer for so many years & I’m so grateful to get to contribute my own work in that space. Cheers to every incredibly talented vendor involved in this day – you blessed us with something absolutely beautiful. Most importantly, cheers to Danielle & Tyler’s marriage! It took everything in me not to post every single photo here, so enjoy this very long post!!

I am obsessed with Christa & Kyle’s vibrant and colorful anniversary session at The Saguaro! Christa & I went to college together, and now both work as wedding photographers. We made a trip out to the desert in November where she shot a wedding with me, and we just couldn’t head back home without capturing she & her husband at the famous Saguaro hotel.
My favorite part of the session was when C & K broke out their swing dancing moves for me!
