Engagement Session at Chrissy Field
This past weekend I had an engagement session with a great couple who made the drive from Union City to Chrissy Field for Golden Hour (what photographers refer to as the hour before sunset when everything gets a beautiful golden glow).

Destination Wedding in St. Augustine, Florida

This wonderfully kind couple were engaged last summer, after being together for seven years. They had a casual beach wedding with smiles all around. Despite threats of storms, there wasn't a drop of rain ...

Graduation Portraits in North Beach
Just a few pics from a graduation session I did last week. We wandered around North Beach and found some really awesome new spots. It was a very typical overcast San Francisco day and we made the most of the beautiful lighting that overcast days give off.

Portraits in Nob Hill
I had sooo much fun with Will on this photoshoot. It was a last minute call and I was available to go out that evening. We wandered around Nob Hill and found an awesome old couch on the side of the road that we just couldn't pass up. Will won't admit it, but he's a really good model and takes great pictures. Check them out!

The other week I photographed Andrea, a young aspiring actress about to head out to Los Angeles. We had a fabulous session at Chrissy Field and the weather was perfect. She's just beautiful and I made some zed card mock-ups to help hers stand apart from the rest. FYI, zed cards are the same as comp, or composite, cards. They are ...

Little Fish Boutique
Today I dropped by Little Fish Boutique in West Portal to take some pictures for Tori, the owner of this cute children's boutique. It's an awesome long space with a skylight and a room in the back used for kiddie yoga classes. How neat is that? She has the absolute cutest kid's clothing I've ever seen. It's totally trendy and a ...
