Santa Clara Family Session

Being a wedding photographer literally entails observing families come to life. One of the most joyful weddings I’ve ever observed was with Gillian and Fabrizio a few years ago when they wed at Santa Clara University, their alma mater. I don’t know how to explain that wedding day, except that it was packed with joy and love in a way that very few days I’ve ever seen have been. It also happened to be on my birthday, and last Saturday I was able to celebrate another birth with them, that of their first child. She is a cutie! Their family of three has found a way into my heart that I can’t quite articulate with words, but I hope these images share a little bit of the joy they bring this world.

On a cool San Francisco’s day, its fun to be reminded of sunshine and pretty things. How about getting married on the grounds of a private mansion overrlooking the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge on one of the most perfect days of the year?

China & Mark, Marin Headlands, CA

Defying all odds of nature and the renown inclement weather of the Marin headlands, China, Mark and I decided that it we’d risk the wind and the fog and head back to the cliff where they were engaged. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather for an engagement shoot and I loved every minute of the day. Over the course of the afternoon we got to know each other a little better, laughed at our good fortune, were doused with a few waves, and had a general blast. It was obvious from the get go how perfect these two are for each other and I’m pretty excited to get to spend their wedding day with them next year.
