What I love most about photography is the opportunity to capture authentic, raw emotion while meeting interesting and adventurous people. There is truly nothing like it. Add a little amazing natural light and you’re on your way to some beautiful photography.

I’ve been capturing weddings, family lifestyle photography and casual portraits for more than a couple decades now working primarily in the Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Napa, and San Francisco Bay areas, as well as all along the coastlines around San Diego and Coronado and everywhere in between.

Thank you so much for visiting my website and taking a few minutes to look at some of my photographs. I’ve been photographing weddings, families, milestones, and events for over 20 years. I know secret and beautiful photography shoot locations around Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Napa, the San Francisco Bay area, and the California coastline from Point Reyes down to San Diego and Coronado.

Lauren in Lavender

What could be more fun than putting on a cute little dress and playing around in a lavender field while "yours truly" gets to capture it? Ok, truth be told, while I think Lauren enjoyed our shoot, she may have preferred to be on the court or out on the field(the big green kind with goalposts).

Coming out for air….Baby Rowan, Erin and Cole

I first met Erin and Cole in February 2020, right before Covid shut it all down.

Anja and Nick celebrate their wedding day at Serrano Country Club

High School sweethearts and "friends first", Nick and Anja got married 10 years after they first started dating. The history of ten years of dating made for alot of storytelling (and great expressions) during the toasts- lots of laughing. And that's the way it was all day....they were surrounded in joy, warmth and the "love of life" vibe of friends and family.
