Boonville Hotel

My last wedding of the season at the Boonville Hotel left me feeling joyful and grateful for my job. I document the celebration of love! Not a bad job. Chelsea and Harris were full of humor, their friends were friendly and nice, and their families were clearly overjoyed to be together. And I can’t leave out the fact that the Boonville Hotel is one of my favorite wedding venues. A modern Roadhouse with a beautiful garden, cute cabanas, adorable staff and best of all, amazing food.

Zenni Optical

This summer I shot these ads for Zenni Optical. Has anyone heard of them? I keep bumping into people who have cool glasses that they bought online from Zenni. They are affordable, and they have very cool fun frames to choose from. Thank you to my talented and professional crew for helping me make these images. Hoping they use the ones with Laurie’s dog, Jesse’s bike and David’s accordion too!

Pt. Reyes Wedding

My my it has been a long while since I have been here. After a crazy busy summer and a winter hiatus it’s time to  begin sharing images again. Kristin and Jeff’s wedding in Pt. Reyes was a refreshing blend of casual, DIY and crazy cool pink and blue color schemes. A close friend of Kristin’s made all the deserts and not only were they irresistible looking, but delicious too. The day was filled with a steady stream of laughter, music, and easy smiling faces . I love it when couples who have been together for a very long time, who seem to have been made for each other, finally tie the knot! When I left this wedding I was in a very good mood for days after, and not just because they sent me home with a box full of desserts, but because it was so beautiful and they were having so much fun.
