Michael & Lauren’s story began back in 2018. They first met online, and after a very memorable first date that stretched for four hours (!), it became clear that something special was brewing. Since then, we’ve had the honor of documenting several of their big milestones: first, their proposal in the spring of 2022 up in the Marin Headlands, then their fall engagement photos at Mt Tam, and finally, their beautiful wedding at Viansa Sonoma this summer.

One tranquil morning last weekend, the world held its breath as Pankaj and Vaibhavi paddled a rowboat around the waters of Stow Lake. As the birds chirped around them, they glided towards the iconic stone arch bridge. Little did Vaibhavi know that this ordinary morning was about to become an extraordinary memory.

Vina and Lisa share an amazing love story together: after meeting online over a decade ago, they gradually grew closer until they each knew they had found the one.

Brandon had been preparing for this moment for months — he envisioned his proposal to Sabrina to be perfectly set up, at the perfect location, and timed right at sunset. He was concerned about fog (it is the month of Fogust, after all), and to mitigate the risk, he chose a location up in the Berkeley fire trails. As luck would play out, it did end up being very foggy that day… but because of the great location choice, his proposal would happen well above that thick sea of fog down below, making an incredible scene.
