Who would have guessed that the East Bay Area would be home to a stunning redwood park? Ashley and Nico celebrated their engagement amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Oakland Redwoods. As an engagement and wedding photographer with a keen eye for capturing love stories, I couldn’t have asked for a better setting.

Sarah, Lucas, and I have a history. I was so so excited when Sarah wanted to do another family session together, this time at one of my favorite places on earth, Carmel-by-the-Sea. Little did Sarah know that this family photoshoot would take an unexpected and exciting turn.

When Taylor reached out and asked me to candidly capture the moment he proposed to Sam, I immediately that I had to say yes! We decided to do the shoot on the beautiful cliffs of Pacifica, California, with the picturesque ocean views providing an ideal backdrop. I knew that the location would add an extra touch of magic to the moment, and I was ecstatic to begin!

As I looked through the lens of my camera during my recent family photo session, I was struck by the beauty of the Filoli Gardens in Woodside, California. The vibrant flowers blended perfectly with the impressive brick architecture, creating an almost ethereal atmosphere – truly a Secret Garden vibe! But, as a photographer, I know that there’s something deeper to it than just capturing a beautiful scene.
