Al-Lee and Charles are, without a doubt, one of our most unique couples. I had always thought that we (Annie and David) were total opposites — until we met Al-Lee and Charles. She’s the vivacious, life-of-the-party bride with a very colorful personality (and palette!), while he is the calm and relaxed groom who, underneath that reserved facade, is a loving and ever-supportive husband.

Like almost all of our 2020 brides and grooms, Al-Lee and Charles had to postpone their celebration due to the coronavirus. But they just couldn’t wait to actually get married! So they chose to have a micro-wedding at Gardener Ranch (their original venue) on their original wedding date. [ read more … ]
We’re lucky enough to have been following David & Teryn’s story for almost a year. David contacted us about a photo shoot while he was still planning his proposal, and a few weeks later, the four of us met up in Santa Cruz for their engagement photos. This July, we finally joined them at their Carmel-by-the-Sea wedding at Folktale Winery and Vineyards, where they tied the knot and said their vows in front of their family & friends. [ read more … ]
Weather can be a funny thing. As I was driving down from San Francisco for Savauna & J’s Point Lobos engagement session, the skies were perfectly clear and sunny. It wasn’t until I started to turn into the park that the thick fog suddenly creeped up on me!

Shervil & Douglas came to California all the way from Singapore for their engagement photos! Originally, we had planned on visiting some vineyards up in the Napa Valley, but had to make a last-minute switch due to the tragic fires. I loved how plan B turned out though! We went to Point Lobos near Carmel-by-the-Sea, and got some great portraits in the woods and at the beach at sunset. I’m excited to share some of their photos!
