Doug + Annika . Expecting . Singapore and San FranciscoFebruary 10, 2014

This is a story of two birthdays. Well, I guess three, really! I had the honor to document Doug and Annika’s pregnancy with a maternity session in their home of Singapore last February, days before their son was born and on Doug’s birthdays of all days. Five months later, two had become three, and we captured some family photos near their new home in the San Francisco Bay Area. This time, it was Annika’s birthday. Yes, a total coincidence, both times!

If you’re a photography blog junkie, you might recognize Doug and Annika from their epic Icelandic wedding as captured by the amazing guys at Nordica. I try not to over use the word “epic,” but this time it’s definitely fitting. They’re two of the best people I know, so my heart has grown for this special little boy, already a world traveler. Please enjoy the set and try not to lose it over the baby buns!

Ingrid + Jake . Married . Miami Beach, FloridaFebruary 9, 2014

Preparing this blog post felt like a vacation. It all came back. The sand on my feet, the palm trees billowing in the breeze, the warm, turquoise water, and the humid nights. It’s hard to beat Ingrid and Jake’s wedding. Adding to the magic of Miami Beach, the couple embraced the bride’s Cuban heritage with incredible food and live Cuban music. The day was full of laughter and fun, but the experience was hallmarked by Ingrid and Jake’s emotional, tender moments for each other and their friends and families. I couldn’t be more proud to share this story with you.

Wedding Highlight Reel by Jesse Morrow of Veil and Tie:

Jake + Ingrid Wedding Highlights from Jesse Morrow on Vimeo.

 

Kelly + Marshall . Engaged . Seattle, WAMay 27, 2013

There really isn’t much better than a sunny day in Seattle. Add two fun people in love and their adorable dog, and I’m a happy girl. Kelly, Marshall, Addie, and I explored a few neighborhoods around Georgetown and Beacon Hill — here’s a taste of some of the fun we had. Looking forward to their big day this Saturday! Enjoy.

Natalie + Seth . Married . Morgan Hill, CAJanuary 27, 2013

I fell in love with Natalie and Seth the moment we met. Please read their love story on their engagement post, it’s pretty special. Natalie is incredibly creative (check out her fashion blog here) and designed the wedding herself. Her hard work paid off, because everything from the location to the table settings to the hand painted signs felt perfect. Rhett and I have had the priviledge of getting to know Natalie and Seth over the course of our relationship with them, and consider them friends. It was so special to connect with their wonderful families and all of the people the mean the most to them.

All of our best to you both, congratulations, and thank you for sharing your day with us. The photo story is below.

Kindra + Connell . Married . Turlock, CAJanuary 25, 2013

Kindra and Connell got married at the home she grew up in, in Turlock, California. The portraits you see below are in the field across the street and in her parents’ almond orchard. The highlight of the day, aside from the incredible dance party (grandparents included), was the dog taking a huge bite out of the wedding cake as the girls got ready. Fortunately, he got to an extra sheet before the real deal. Phew!

This was a fun, carefree day full of wonderful people. Please enjoy.

Helen + Alan . Engaged . San Francisco, CAJanuary 10, 2013

It has been crazy for me lately. We moved to Seattle (!), got a cat, and things at work have been busy — in the best of ways. Downside, I haven’t blogged since September. I have so much goodness to share with you, I just had to get something in front of you. And it’s so damn fun.

Meet Helen and Alan. In love, full of life, kind, smart, wonderful people. I crashed a game of chess at their adorable apartment in San Francisco, and we made plans to head to Sutro Baths for photos. Some of the densest San Francisco fog I’ve ever seen foiled those plans, but I have to say the spontaneous backup plan worked out just fine. Enjoy this set, and I look forward to sharing oh so much more with you very soon.

Marion + Brian . Married . Seattle, WASeptember 24, 2012

Sometimes the weddings that are the hardest to write about are the ones that mean the most to you. With that, I’ll leave you with these images of two of my best friends’ wedding day. You may remember Marion and Brian from their engagement session.

A huge thank you to my friend Michael Rowley for spending the day with me. Your talent, personality, and dance floor skills are not to be rivaled.

Congratulations Marion and Brian! We love you.
