Lee + Shelby [Married] Monte de Oro Winery // Temecula Wedding Photographer

The Tour de Muse has been a number of years in the making. With both of them in earning advance degrees (Lee, his MBA and Shelby her Doctorate in Physical Therapy) the two enjoyed cycling, traveling, wine tasting and the Anaheim Ducks (GO SHARKS!) in between classes and papers. One day, the two went to Pelican Hill Resort in Newport. Unbeknownst to Shelby, Lee was planning a special surprise… He dropped down on one knee and proposed – and it was all caught on camera by a professional photographer who then took them around for some fun proposal day photographs! On cloud nine, the two got right to planning their big day.

Bouncing between a SoCal and a NorCal wedding the two decided that a wedding in the southern part of the state was the best for everyone. Shelby and Lee’s wine country nuptials were beautiful.  Choosing the beautiful Monte de Oro Winery in Temecula, guests from near and far came to witness a ceremony overlooking vines and dance the night away in the winery’s barrel room.

Following the ceremony, we went for a romp at sunset in the vineyards. Simply wonderful! Could not have asked for a more perfect evening. After we were all done, Lee and Shelby still had time to enjoy some quiet time by themselves before they were announced at the beginning of their reception!

Summer Wedding Shootout // Mini Workshop

This past August a group of vendors and I got together to create something magical. The last 2 wedding shoots, I have invited other photographers to join in on the fun, and this time was no different. Along side the shoot, 6 other photographers and I met and talked all things wedding. I talked about how to shoot for your brand and publication as well as my wedding day work flow.  It was a very natural, honest and organic conversation. One photographer, Talina, that joined us had this to say, “Just wanted to thank you so much for everything, I had a wonderful time and the vendors rock too! It was awesome learning from you and seeing you work in action you’re a rockstar, and it really got me thinking on changing the way I shoot. I’m gonna practice on that for sure… Can’t wait to share pics and blog! I definitely want to join the next shootout! Have a beautiful rest of your week!”  After our roundtable conversations, we moved on to posing couples. I purposely chose to work with a real couple, that I have never worked with and were not professional models. I wanted to shoot and the lesson to be real and authentic – and I felt that is exactly what happened.

Danielle + Brian [Engaged] // Oakland Wedding Photographer

Danielle and Brian are simply adorable together. They love adventure, each other and the City of Oakland. They enjoy going to baseball games (she’s a Giants fan, he’s an A’s fan – let’s hope their kids don’t grow up to be LA fans!), traveling and just being together.

Keeping with their love for the City, we stayed within Oakland city limits for their beautiful engagement session.The two will also tie the knot in Oakland in July 2015.

Enjoy.

Aaron + Jamie [Married] Palmdale Estates, Fremont // East Bay Wedding Photographer

Aaron and Jamie go together like a pair of sunglasses and a warm summer day. These two planned their most perfect day in just about 6 months time. Engaged in December 2013, Aaron and Jamie quickly got to planning.  Wanting to get married in the same church as Aaron’s mother and late father did, the two stumbled upon the beauty that is Palmdale Estates, just a few short miles away. Tucked away, off the road, Palmdale Estates is truly a hidden gem with its grand lawns, mature trees and luscious blooms – not much decor is needed here, if at all.

Enjoy -

Jamie looked stunning in her Maggie Sottero gown from J’aime Bridal and make up by Adele Nader.


Much love to the two of you! Thank you so much for allowing me to be apart of your beautiful day!

Thank you to all of the amazing vendors of the day
