San Francisco is just a magical little town. The weather, the light, the vibe, the essence that takes over your emotions and just puts a feel good feelin’ in your bones. I don’t shoot a lot of family portraits but when my girl asked me to photograph her and her sister to document some of the rare hang time they have before she headed back to school in NYC, I said hell ya. A family session with a different spin on tradition. Larissa+Serena

So I’ve been giving these 1 on 1 photography workshops of late, and they’ve been pretty awesome. Getting to share the sweet nuggets of knowledge I’ve picked up over the past few years with others has been super rewarding. Each workshop features a lil’ shoot with a couple so you can see how I work and twerk with actual humans. Here’s a few frames of the pretty faces that are Kevin+Sherry. Who were awesome to let us infiltrate their apartment for some portraits.

Sure I’ll escape the rainy soupy-ness of Portland in December and shoot your wedding in Hollywood. I mean, I guess..

Gracie and Nate are awesome peeps. I have the opportunity to shoot their engagement sesh last fall and get to know these two mega in love down for anything cats. Their wedding was chill, intimate, and beautiful. Just how I like em. From their first look at Runyon Canyon overlooking the city of LA, to rad coffee house Go Get Em Tiger, to their hollywood art gallery venue Project Gallery, the day was just perfect. Hit play, hang out for a bit as we hang out with Gracie and Nate on their wedding day.

Union Pine Wedding

Julie+Nate’s Union Pine wedding was nothing short of magical. As you probably saw in their portland engagement session, they radiate with an intimate connection. A true honest love that comes through in every photo taken of them. They wanted their family and friends who attended their wedding to feel it as well. Prior to the ceremony, Julie led her bridesmaids in centering. Taking a quiet moment to celebrate what each of her girls meant to her. It was beautiful as everyone prior to the ceremony was led in a 10 minute guided meditation. This allowed them to focus their attention on the reason they were there and be fully present. The styling mirrored their personalities beautifully; a custom floral installation made by The Green Dandelion for the ceremony, Wild Unknown tarot card table decor, and Julie’s hand made dream catchers. And check out those hatchet/peace pipes Nate gave his groomsmen as gifts, so rad!

It was such an honor to be a witness, let alone to document Julie and Nate’s wedding. And I mean who doesn’t love photographing a couple of people running through the streets of Portland with smoke bombs?

This wedding was also featured on the wonderful Green Wedding Shoes. Head over there to read more about their day.

Sit back. Press Play. And enjoy the magic.
