This. This moment. Gin and Sangria. Alone. Well not really. A bright flash blinding you from a photographer who time traveled in her make believe Delorean to become a 1940s press photographer. Just two steps back and splash, drenched head to toe in the pool. The final shot of the night. Thanks you two, I love you.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA… “Sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata,” – A wet bride is a lucky bride, according to the Italians, fitting for this Friday the 13th wedding on the wet steps of the San Francisco City Hall. Giulia the bride is Italian, and know the phrase quite well, she believes it, so I believe it.
Vincentia, NSW, AUSTRALIA… American Meets Australian. Back in the day when the internet was a scary place. It was love at first sentence, for these two.

Since then Coffee is their priority- when they have a big decision, coffee first, big event- coffee first. The couple chose to get ready together- which is BRILLIANT. It cuts […]
Peter and Patil were married in Pasadena, with reception to follow in Glendale. To transport them to the reception- they hired a classic car- my favorite part of the day. Just me, the chauffeur and the couple, documenting that magical moment of just being married.
me: “How’s Your Ankle?” “Broken, Sprained?!”
Bride: “Oh Yes, i found out today I broke my foot on the dance floor at the reception. Confirmed with X Rays”
me: “You are my hero.”
Bride ” Sacrifices must be made to get the shot!”
They showed up at 6:30 am the next morning, broken foot and all. Matt carried her piggyback down to the beach, and around the beach, then back up the stairs, to their hotel #marriedlife.
From the Designer Libby Martin “The cake and the moon were designed especially for this Shoot. Some of the items are actual pieces from the 20’s and 30’s. The theme is a 1930’s Classic Hollywood Nightclub. It took place in a 100 year old theater and the shoot was designed around the theater’s details. The couple is actually married and were very excited to have a type of second wedding.” Dragonfly Events OC Coordinator/Planner Libby Martin Paper Moon Shoppe […]

Located in the historic Mission Inn district of downtown Riverside, the 1929 Riverside Art Museum building was designed by Hearst Castle architect Julia Morgan.
This former florist and wedding planner did everything right. The couple got ready together at their suite in Laguna Beach, with their two dogs, and absolutely no stress. If you are a couple, I wish more couples did this.. While she got her hair done, the groom to be finished writing his vows while sipping on espresso looking out onto the pacific ocean. He buttoned up her wedding dress, and she adjusted his bow tie. They drove themselves to the wedding and I hitched a ride in the backseat.
The ceremony was minimalistic, and the bride made her entrance walking down the stairs of the bamboo garden, to a live music gospel choir. Dinner was served buffet style, which I LOVE as it keep people moving talking, and the energy in the space up and lively.
Ken and Simone LOVE Las Vegas, so much so, we shot their engagement photos in Las Vegas. Here we are back for round two, ten years later to celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a trash the dress shoot- Vegas style- Champagne- a Chapel- and the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign.
These photos are spectacular!! We are over the moon excited about these, we just looked through all of them! Thank you so much for your incredible work, you totally captured the experience beautifully! – Sarah & Ben
When Caleb met Ashley, he said “Your like Popcorn” “When I saw you for the first time, time stood still” referencing the Tim Burton Film Bigfish. The wedding at 7 degrees. Second Photographer Kip Roof. To make this Gif, I had the camera set up on the tripod and controlled the shutter via remote.
Thank you, Patil & Peter, for having me cruise with you to the reception in the Rolls Royce. Agreeing to keep the top down without a care in the world, not worried about hair, and just being together, a truly magical moment at sunset on the CA freeway.
