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.
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!
I’m very excited to announce that Paige Green and I will be hosting a food photography workshop at her Petaluma family farm taught by the incredibly talented photographer Sara Remington. Working alongside Sara is Karen Shinto, one of San Francisco’s top food stylists. During this one day natural light workshop, participants will learn valuable skills through demonstration and hands-on exercises. Everyone will have the opportunity to make new images, receive a critique, and the best part of all will be sharing a delicious organic and locally sourced meal at the end of the day. To learn more about the workshop go to http://www.farmphotoworkshop.com. Please check out Sara’s work here http://www.sararemington.net.
I met this family downtown in the coffee shop and was happy they easily agreed to model for my stock photography.
Watch out for this girl. Emily is a local Petaluma singer songwriter and she has a beautiful voice! These first few images were taken last year when she was 15 for her first record. Check out her music at http://www.emilybrockman.com.
And we just made these new images for her next album…..which I can’t wait to hear.
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.
Congratulations to local singer songwriter Lisa Stano for putting out her new cd ” All Dressed Up… and Everywhere to Go”, available at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/lisastano.
