Kim and Dan met during their undergrad at Stanford through mutual friends. As big puzzle fans, Dan proposed after a full day of problem solving adventures, each answer taking her to the next location. Every place was a spot they visited when they first started dating: The California Academy of Science, Toronado (a bar they went to on their first date, Underdogs, all over San Francisco finishing at Bar Crudo for dinner.  The final puzzle spelled out WILL YOU MARRY ME. After a long day of extremely difficult puzzles, it was an easy Yes.

They love to go wine tasting together, so Helwig was an easy decision for their wedding venue. What a beautiful backdrop for their first look. Some of their favorite things to do as a couple are traveling to places with great views, warm weather, and wine. Check, check, check!

On weekends, Kim and Dan love to have a “foodgressive”, which is food hopping around the city where they get to try all different appetizers, desserts, and small plates at different restaurants. They were really looking forward to sharing the delicious food from Beth and Ingrid’s amazing cakes while starting this new chapter in their lives.

Congrats Kim and Dan! We have NO DOUBT you are meant for each other, and wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Gavin turned 4, so we celebrated by gathering a bunch of balloons on a bridge. What didn’t help was that there was a preschool fair at the park next door, so there were 1,339,701 people walking through our set on the way to their party, and thought the balloons were part of the fair. Makes sense, but that combined with the windy weather weren’t helping. So we just let Gavin go crazy and do whatever. Sometimes, it’s the only way to do it.

Kenny and Annette got married at the beautiful Wine & Roses resort in Lodi. It was a perfect day and everyone was in great spirits.

I had a chance to spend some time with Kenny and Annette during their Engagement photos in San Francisco. We had a perfect day in the city which is not easy to do, but we lucked out! I knew their wedding day would be similarly lucky, because they both have great attitudes and are up for anything.

I loved all of the colorful details they picked out for their day:

Their “first look” allowed us to take all the formal portraits before the ceremony, which meant that Kenny and Annette got to partake in some of cocktail hour. It really alleviated stress, because they had big families, and it would have taken at least two hours after the ceremony to get all of their “must have” shots!

CARNEY FB-78.jpg

Christina and Shane got married way up North past Truckee in a beautiful place called the Chalet View Lodge. What looks like a Summer camp for families, they exchanged vows on a dock over a pond with a kayak and tall pine trees and bench seating. Pretty ideal if you ask me. They are easy going, fun-loving people who just wanted everyone to have a good time.

I hadn’t met Christina and Shane before their wedding day, or even spoken to either of them on the phone. It’s one of those wonderful connections where a fellow wedding photographer was a bridesmaid in one of my past weddings, and recommended me to her friend who was getting married. Word of mouth really is the best thing ever.

CARNEY FB-1.jpg

Christina is a buyer for a decor brand, so I knew the details would be beautiful and coordinated. She did not disappoint!

Shane is a soccer coach, and he and his groomsmen were up for a fun and silliness the whole day. They posed themselves like this while I was shooting the bridesmaids, and I turned around and got this shot. Love it!

Their ceremony was short and sweet, clocking in at around 7 minutes. There wasn’t even a need for people to sit, so they mostly gathered around the pond.

SUTTON WEDDING_0001.jpg

When I met up in Mendocino with Katelyn and Mark at their family property for Engagement photos, it really was a special place for them (where they go abalone diving, fly their plane up for weekends with their dog, and enjoy the ocean view), but it ended up being a place where I got to know them and their special bond. These are kind, thoughtful, and wonderful people. They even sent me a couple of bottles of wine as a Thank You from wineries on their way home.

I was extra blown away to have documented their wedding, which was even more amazing than I was prepared for. The first official event held at the BEAUTIFUL Davis Ranches, and designed by Philip Rice, it looked like something Martha Stewart herself would have planned.

Katherine is such a little beauty! I can’t wait to take her photos as she grows. What a beautiful family, and I love how Marie and David’s first (4-legged) daughter, Chewy, was able to join in on the photos. Not all dogs are this cooperative and well behaved, that’s for sure!

IMG_0446-Edit_blog.jpgI’m so excited for Justin and Tracy’s June wedding, it sounds like it’s going to be so beautiful. They love fine food, wine, friends and family, so the location they close (Wente Vineyards) is a perfect spot for the French country feel they’re going for. It’s also one of my favorite venues, and they have the absolute best food!

We were able to get out to the lupine right before it was gone at the end of April. All the purple and yellow wildflowers really go with their wedding colors, so it was perfect!
