She had an air about her that seemed calm, and confident. Maybe it was in the way she batted her eyelashes or moved about the room. Samantha was a pleasure to meet and work with in many ways. She was able to let loose and be herself. As an upcoming actress who is used to smiling for all her shoots, we had fun throwing in some more serious tones here and there. You can see Samantha in action on one of Lyft's commercials - here!
This wedding, complete with clydesdale horses, flower & vegetable gardens, and vineyards was beautiful to say the least. Jackie and Tom got married at beltane ranch in the wine country of California. They were both very calm and enjoying their day together with family and friends. The horses definitely had us swooning all day long. Cheers to the newlyweds and continued happiness!

I was delighted when Aline from alines closet asked if I would pair up with her to photograph her line of clothing for her website and do an editorial style shoot! Aline's style is truly one-of-a-kind as she designs and hand makes each unique garment customizable for each client. Her little shop in the Lower Haight of San Francisco has a vibrant energy, just like her. Be sure to check it out whenever you are in town at : 101 Pierce St. alines-closet-san-francisco
My other sister, Aimee, also came for a first-time visit to San Francisco. Nicknaming her Poison Ivy, we loved this shoot in front of a gorgeous ivy covered wall in Pacific Heights. Aimee is a talented textile designer and artist who lives in Brooklyn, New York. She hand dyed and printed the headband featured below! You can check out more of her lovely work here:
The pureness and unity between these two love birds was undeniably heartfelt on their wedding day. Devon and Chris both have harmonious souls and it is certain that they were made for each other. We had such a lovely time at this intimate ceremony surrounded by flowers, greenery, and a sense of peace. Congratulations Devon and Chris!

Family portraits are one of my favorite sessions because I always enjoy watching the love and dynamics between each unique familial bond. Melia and Jazmin were the sweetest little darlings. Melia was so gentle with her little sister as she read to her and gave her the flowers she picked. And Jasmine was content the entire time enjoying every second of sunshine. It doesn't get much cuter than this!
We had such a fun time with this engagement in the thick fog. The Marin Headlands is one of the most unique areas of the Golden Gate National Recreation area. The views from above in the high hills and mountains are breathtaking, especially when you have two beautiful people to capture! Stephanie and Brandon's love for each other shined through in the moments in between. // Shot alongside viviansachs Photography
I always have a lovely time shooting for Vivian Sachs Photography.

Mark Chua and I always have a blast shooting together. Cheers to the newly weds and their undeniable love for each other!!
