This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting with Nicole of Fairytale Beginnings. Nicole has just launched her Los Gatos based wedding and consultation service, and is already booking her summer up! As a wedding photographer, and having seen my fair share of weddings, I will attest it is fantastic for everyone involved to have a coordinator running the show. It allows the bride and groom to fully enjoy the day, and often times, it can actually save you money in the end. Nicole has had loads of experience planning corporate and non-profit events and is ready to dip her toes in the wedding industry. Check out her blog and contact her for your coordination needs- she is sweet, kind and has a great eye!

We met at the Purple Onion Cafe in downtown Los Gatos which I love. They have yummy breakfast and coffee, but also are fabulous caterers!

Santa Cruz Photographer : an Afternoon at the Beach Boardwalk

After a lovely meeting this morning with potential wedding clients, Jesse and I decided to take the kids to the beautiful coast to round out our fabulous weekend. We went to the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz- the weather was amazing! As it turns out, our little man was in a rare mood today- calm. Normally he is a wild man, but I enjoyed every second of this cuddly, tentative guy. Sure enough, it didn’t last and as soon as we sat down for dinner in Capitola, he was back to his wild ways. Oh well, it was great while it lasted! :) Here are a few shots from the few rides we could go on- turns out Teague needs to grow a bit!

As it turns out, our little Cecily is quite the dare devil. I think she would have ridden on anything if given the chance. Jesse is the best dad, always up for anything with the kids.

Jesse giving Teague a little pep talk before “the spooky train ride”… and then whooping it up with Cecily on the Pirate Ship.

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend! We were so blessed to have amazing weather and this time together.

Clift Hotel : San Francisco Wedding Venue

This afternoon I headed up to the city to check out the Clift Hotel near Union Square in San Francisco because I will be photographing a wedding there late spring. It really is an amazing venue with a modern chic feel, but a well defined history. Between the Spanish Room, the Redwood Room, the rooftop terrace, and the stunning lobby, there is so much to see and appreciate! What a gorgeous wedding venue! I took a few shots while I was there- enjoy!

Erica and Kumar got married this past fall in Los Altos at The Chateau Group which is a gorgeous venue for a wedding. The Chateau Group has the feel of a vineyard wedding with the convenience of being right between the Peninsula and South Bay. Did I mention the food provided by Taste-Full Events was insanely delicious? Seriously- so good!

I helped Loren out with this wedding, which is always such fun. Erica and Kumar are a very cute couple- I love the bright colors and and fun touches they chose.

Isn’t the henna beautiful?
