- Last week I met up with Jill and Kevin at Scott's Seafood by the river for their engagement photos. Jill and I sat in the mighty cold bar and sipped on a drink while we waited for Kevin to arrive. His flight earlier in the day had been cancelled, and he came straight from the airport to meet us for our date night session.
- Good thing the AC worked so well inside, because outside seemed like the hottest day of the week....until this week.
- We headed outside just before the golden hour.
- I just love this bridge that takes you to the water's edge. The leading lines are my favorite.
- And here the lines make for a great frame.
- Kevin and Jill are getting a head start on their save the dates for next year's wedding!

- Lisa and Joe recently brought Eli into this world. I was excited to take photos of him while he was considered newborn since they grow so fast!
- Eli was awake almost the entire time I was visiting. And fully alert!
- This is one of my favorite photos. I love seeing how small he is in their hands.
- Eli is already making some funny faces! LOVE IT!
- He's resting peacefully on mommy.
- Check out those big eyes!
- Lisa was so calm, even when Eli wasn't cooperating. A perfect mom in the making!
- Joe is a wine maker and I couldn't resist using the wine box as a little bed prop.
- One last photo from our session. Little heart feet. :-)

- The Memory Journalists had the pleasure of photographing Graham's baptism and capturing some family photos. This little guy was such a good baby during his christening. I was amazed at all the love that was shared that Sunday. What a very special day for sweet Graham and his family.
- I love this photo of Graham with his sister's and mom.
- Here are a few of my favorite candid moments.
- Another favorite moment. LOVE!
- The whole family crew! What a very blessed day this was for Graham and his family. Thank you for allowing The Memory Journalists to be a small part of it.

- Last month, Isabel and I had the pleasure of photographing Robyn and Guido's San Francisco wedding. Isabel and I arrived early in order to grab a bite to eat at my favorite burger joint at the Embarcadero (in case you are wondering it's Gott's Roadside). We meandered a little bit throughout the Farmer's market. Midday in July in the city is the best weather, making our walk back to the Omni Hotel a pleasurable warm-up to meeting the wedding party in their rooms for getting ready photos. Robyn's dress was a perfect match for her.
We were lucky enough to work with some fabulous vendors, making it a great team effort for a wonderful wedding.
- This just might be one of my favorite inanimate photos I've taken in quite some time. Getting the necklace to stay put on Robyn's shoe was no small feat! (I thought about saying "no small feet" to see if anyone caught the pun....but figured that was too corny!)
- As Robyn started the process of getting dressed, you could tell she was both super excited and happy, and even a bit nervous.
- It's crazy how window light can make for the best photos. The ones above as well as the ones below both in the same location, but look so different. I especially like the silhouette with Robyn and her two sister-in-laws.
- While I rode with the girls in their limo to the church, Isabel headed to the guy's suite to spend some time with them getting ready.
- 2Nite vodka made an appearance in the guys room (and in the limo) as they toasted Guido.
- Robyn's nieces and nephews played the special role of ring bearer and flower kids. They were adorable!
- I know I already posted this on Facebook, but I love the look of Robyn focusing on Guido as she walked up the aisle.
- Isabel captured Sandra, Robyn's mom, standing with her as she gave Robyn away, and I love that Guido's mom is standing too watching this pair.
- Since Isabel was up front and center, it allowed me to play more of the 2nd photographer role and I was the lucky one to be in the balcony.
- Right after the ceremony and family photos, we stole the newlyweds away for some photos around the City. The wedding party waited in the limo for us while we snapped just a few photos leaving the church.
- We headed to the marina pier.
- Love the randomness of this photo. (awesome photo Izzy!)
- Great smiles, don't you think?
- The bridge was almost fogged in; we could barely see it in the background.
- Meanwhile, back at the reception site, Teresa was busy taking detail shots before the guests arrived for cocktail hour.
- Katie, from Ambience Floral, did an amazing job with the flowers.
- The happy couple made their entrance to a room filled with applause.
- The lighting by Supernatural Soundz Entertainment made the room look spectacular.
- We snuck out for a last few photos of just the bride and groom. One L, being in the financial district, and on a weekend, made for pretty empty streets.
- The cake, along with the lighting, made for some more cool photos. If there was one thing I could tell more couples to spend money on, it would be lighting!
- The mic was passed amongst the wedding party, giving turns between laughter and tears.
- We had such a good time photographing this wedding. Thank you both, Robyn and Guido, for allowing us to be a part of your special day.
