Big news, for a limited time I’m having an album sale!  All albums will be 25% off until March 14th!  If you haven’t purchased an album, or you’d like to purchase a duplicate album for your parents this is a great time to take advantage of the offer.

An album will stand the test of time and is a tangible reminder of your big day.  These books can be passed down through the generations and will show your story to your children and grandchildren.  Who knows where digital images and technology will be years down the road.  All I know is that I have original photographs from my childhood and of my parents and grandparents that are still around.  But my personal photos from 10 years ago are lost in cyberspace somewhere.

I encourage all my clients to create a meaningful remembrance of their day in the form of an album.  My books are available in two different designs and can be completely customized to suit your tastes.

The first book is the Coffee Table Book, which comes with a box/sleeve cover.  Both the album cover and box are covered in linen or silk book cloth.  Custom logo stamping is available for an additional fee, as well as custom fabrics and other upgrades.

My clients tend to prefer this book because you can fit so many images in the book, due to it’s construction.  Books have a minimum of 100 pages / 50 spreads and are printed on thick, archival paper.

The Silk Flushmount Album is a more traditional wedding album, with pages constructed of photographic prints mounted to rigid archival board.  The album cover includes an inset image and is covered in colorful silks and linens.  All albums include a matching box with silk ribbon.

The biggest difference between this album and the Coffee Table Book is the printing, with this book having photographic paper prints.  Because they are mounted to a rigid board so they won’t bend, the book holds less images than the Coffee Table Book but is perfect for those who prefer a more traditional look.

If you’re interested in purchasing an album please reach out to me via email at or through my website HERE. Orders must be placed by Midnight PST on March 14th, 2017.

I’m excited to get started on your family heirloom!

I’m so excited to finally show off my brand new blog design!  My old design served me well for several years, but it was time for a big refresh.  Take a few minutes to explore the new features, and there are a few new posts and lots of beautiful eye-candy to look at.  I have a ton of images and content I’ve been saving for the blog release, so look for new posts to go live!


I hope you like the new design as much as I do!


Last fall I took my first EVER trip to San Francisco with some friends, and met some new one’s.  We traveled from all corners of the country.  We were hosted by my friend Kristen, and stayed a few days at her place before venturing off to Napa & Sonoma for the weekend.  We stayed in this lovely little house nestled in Sebastopol, which was really quiet and quaint.  One day we went wine-tasting from Healdsburg to Sonoma and stopped at some pretty incredible wineries.  My favorite was Matanzas Creek, which was settled between the beautiful rolling hills of Sonoma.  Matanzas Creek also produced their own lavender, so it was neat to walk through the fields.  One morning we got up early and drove to the coast to Botany Bay, which was also a great little side trip.  It was really foggy and moody and I got some great shots of the rocky coast.  We ended the trip in San Francisco and saw all the sights including the Golden Gate Bridge, Trolley Cars, and had cocktails & oysters on the wharf.  It was a great trip with great friends.
