Phil and Erica’s Cinnabar Hills Wedding is right around the corner. Here are a few images from their San Francisco engagement session. Phil and Erica are big time cookie connoisseurs, so we started at their favorite cookie haunt, Anthony’s Cookies. They treated me to some delicious cookies, and I have to agree, Anthony’s has the best cookies- crisp on the outside, chewy in the middle and oh so tasty! We then made our way to the Headlands- what a lovely way to spend an afternoon!

Aspects of Ibrahim’s Moroccan heritage and Li’s Chinese heritage blended seamlessly into this totally Californian wedding. They were married at the Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley on a gorgeous July day. Li had three beautiful dresses in honor of each of their cultural influences. Chinese appetizers were served during cocktail hour and delicious Moroccan dishes were served family style for dinner. I really loved the multi-cultural feel of this wedding- it was beautiful!!

Li and Ibrahim were surrounded by their history both before they knew each other and after. Not only were they surrounded by their fun and loving family and friends, but their history hung in prints all around the room- love.

This Carmel wedding, high on a ridge overlooking the gorgeous coastline was one (if not the most) beautiful weddings I have ever witnessed. Point Lobos Ridge Estate has become my dream home- seriously… it is spectacular in every sense of the word. I hope to have many reasons to return! Lauren and Vlad, as you can see are a stunning couple. Lauren- you are radiant, a rare beauty that draws people in with your poise and intelligence. It was an honor to document your day!

This day really was incredible, including the weather! Sunshine blessed the ceremony and then the most beautifully romantic fog rolled in about 20 minuted afterwards. With a wine tasting station, family style dinner, vodka shots, and dancing on the patio up in the clouds, I couldn’t get enough of this wedding. A special thank you to my assistant Crystal for being my second set of eyes!
