Leslie and Sean // Deer Park Villa Wedding // Fairfax, California

June 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Leslie and Sean came all the way up from Southern California to be among the redwoods for their big day. They got married at the beautiful Deer Park Villa in Fairfax. Their families and whole wedding party were laid back and lots of fun to be around. After an intimate ceremony with some emotional vows, we snuck off for some portraits at Lake Lagunitas nearby. There is so much natural beauty around this venue, and it was so great be able to have a little time to explore the area with the couple on the wedding day. Big thanks to Sarah and her staff at SWC for keeping everything running smoothly and making the wedding look great. Enjoy!

Some tunes from my editing session:

Dentro de mí semillas tengo de ti y sin ti pueden querer morir


Claire & Andy // Marin Headlands Engagement // Sausalito, California

I need you alone
Goodbyes always take us half an hour
Can't we just go home?


Claire and Andy met performing theater a few years ago. They both have a lifelong love for the screen and stage, so decided to meet at the Alameda Theater and sneak in a few shots in their gorgeous space. From there we had some pizza and beer the Star on Park. We ended our day at the Marin Headlands to feel the wind and watch the fog roll in. It was a good day. It sounded like:

If the stars don't shine
If the moon wont rise


Suzanne and Charlie // Brazilian Room Wedding // Berkeley, California

And I think the dress looks nice on you.
Yes, I can see a lot of life in you.


Charlie and Suzanne got married at the Brazilian Room, just down the street from the Berkeley apartment they share. It's a venue that I've wanted to work at for quite a while and their wedding didn't disappoint. These two both had major crushes on one another in high school, but never dated. Those feelings never faded and years later, they finally had their second chance. For their wedding, they wanted a beautiful place outdoors where their friends and family could just be themselves, relax, and enjoy themselves. I think they succeeded.

Thanks to Jessica at Culinary Excellence. Their staff did a great job with planning and catering. 

I listen to music while I make my blog posts. Here's a playlist of what I was hearing while making this one. Feel free to listen along:

In flames I sleep soundly
With angels around me
