  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi there and welcome to my blog! Thanks for stopping by! Here you will find recent photos of my fabulous clients, and probably some of my kids too. Ok, well I try to keep the kids to a minimum, but sometimes I can't resist.
    I love photographing people, whether it is an important event like a wedding, or just everyday family life. I like to think of my camera as a little magic box with which I can capture memories so you can hold onto them for always.
    Hope you will stay awhile, relax, and enjoy!

Julie + Terry Wedding | Nevada City

Julie and Terry share a love of the outdoors.  When they started looking at wedding venues over a year ago, they couldn’t quite find the right place.  As they spend much of their time working on their home which sits on several acres filled with tall pines, fir and cedar trees, they thought why not get married there?  So friends and family were invited to a “Wedding in the Woods” on summer solstice this past June.  Guests had to take a short walk through the woods to get to the wedding site, but then arrived at a gorgeous spot that had been specially prepared for the ceremony and reception.  Julie absolutely radiated happiness.  Her son and daughter accompanied her down the isle, serenaded by the sound of folk and cajun music played by friends Luke, Maggie, and Murray of Beaucoup Chapeaux.  A beaming Terry waited (it was a good walk from the house to the woods:)) for his beautiful bride!  Dinner followed, catered by LJ Catering featuring BBQ and lots of salads.  While I didn’t stick around much past the start of dinner, I am sure it was rocking party!

Congratulations to you both Julie and Terry!  I wish you only happiness on your new adventures in Southern Califorina!

 

Kerstin + Tobin Wedding | Nevada City

Kerstin and Tobin are ambitious and what a team!  Not only did they decide to plan a wedding at their home in Nevada City, but they also had to renovate their newly purchased house and transform their outside landscape.    Tobin, an architect, has designed three phases of improvements to the house.  This was phase one.  Truly amazing to see the progress.  When I first met Kerstin in January, the house was nearly gutted, but by the date of the wedding, June 1st, the house was transformed.  It was down to the wire, e.g., the kitchen appliances went in the day before the wedding, but it seemed to all work, and the outside was all decked out for a beautiful wedding.  And what a lovely wedding it was.  The wedding ceremony was held on their new lawn and the reception under a sparkly white tent.  Art in Bloom, created an amazing array of green and purple flower arrangements to adorn the tables and a scrumptious three course meal was served by Farm to Table Catering.  Each course was paired with a specific wine for that sublime fine dining experience.

I have to say, I was a little nervous that Kerstin and Tobin would be a wee bit stressed out the day of the wedding given all the effort to transform their house in time for the ceremony.  I mean who wouldn’t be right?  But they were so relaxed and I think happy that the day had finally come.  Kerstin was getting her hair done as I arrived at her now sister-in-law, Teri’s house across the street.  Teri, a world renowned hair artist, styled everyone’s hair in her sweet in-home salon.  Kerstin, an esthetician, and did her own makeup and the makeup for her twin sisters, which she said is how she relaxes :).  The whole day was spectacular and it was awesome to see Kerstin and Tobin so happy and their new life together off to a great start!  Congratulations!!!

Alex & Dylan Wedding | San Francisco

Alex and Dylan married on a warm, gorgeous Saturday afternoon at Dolores Park in San Francisco.  It was such a lovely warm day (which is somewhat rare in SF) that it seemed to draw everyone within a square mile to the park to sunbathe and recreate.  So Alex and Dylan got married with lots of random bystanders cheering them on!  Family and friends were there too of course.  They staked out a grassy circle for hours prior to the wedding, to make sure Alex and Dylan actually had a place to hold the ceremony.  The lawn being prime sunbathing area after all.  After the ceremony and a few cocktails in the park, Alex and Dylan and the wedding guests walked a few blocks to Farina, where everyone enjoyed appetizers and refreshements on the restaurants’ open air roof top.  Dinner followed later in the evening.  It was a spectacular day, so full of the energy that comes with a big city .  Congratulations!!!

 

A lovely lunch spread was enjoyed at Alex and Dylan’s house before the ceremony.

Leah + Jeff Wedding | Grass Valley

Jeff and Leah met through a church group that went hiking often, something they both enjoy doing.  On one rainy outing, Leah had made M&M cookies to bring along as a snack.  She sent the extras home with Jeff, and when he couldn’t tell the difference between Leah’s cookies and his Mom’s cookies, Jeff decided that Leah was the girl for him :)  So naturally, the M&M cookies were the favor at Leah and Jeff’s wedding.  The wedding was held at the First Baptist Church in Grass Valley at 11 am on May 3rd.  The wedding details were a bit retro with bright daisies, polka dot dresses (which Leah made herself!) and bow ties, and a sweet italian soda bar for the guests.  I think one of the highlights of the day  for everyone was the bouquet and garter “toss.”  Leah and Jeff had all the single girls and then all the single guys duke it out via an arm wrestling contest!  Hilarious!!!  Loved it.

Congrats Leah and Jeff!  May there be much love and happiness, and many many more cookies in your life together!

 

Carianne and Adam Wedding | North San Juan

Carianne and Adam got married on a gorgeous Saturday, April 12th, at the North Columbia Schoolhouse.  It could have so easily been a rainy Saturday given the time of year, but instead it just sparkled and the outdoor ceremony was warm with the hint of summer around the corner.   The other thing that sparkled was Carianne’s smile. Her smile was never far away and not to mention, she looked absolutely radiant in her wedding gown.  Both Carianne and Adam were so happy and seemed to so enjoy having all their friends and family close by, some of which travelled quite far.  Carianne’s sister, for example, made the trip with her boys from Germany and brought a special gift that is traditional at German weddings, a toasting cup from which the Bride and Groom must drink at the same time.  Carianne and Adam did just that and as a result I am sure that the the wedding gods will bless them with much happiness and love for always:)
